Race fans, it’s just about here. We are a couple of days away from the launch of the new 51 Network, your soon to be one-stop-shop for Short Track Racing video highlights, interviews and news.
The 51 Network launches on Wednesday, June 24 at 5 p.m. ET and will include many features that will keep race fans busy.
“Since its inception, Speed51.com has continuously set the bar when it comes to short track racing coverage and the launch of the 51 Network will continue that trend,” said Brandon Paul, the Editor of Speed51.com. “The 51 Network will bring short track racing coverage to a level never witnessed before in the pavement racing world. We’re still going to have the same great online coverage you’ve become accustomed to, but the addition of the 51 Network will give fans, racers and all of those involved with the sport an even bigger platform for the type of coverage they want and deserve.”
Speed51.com powered by JEGS has been in the field videoing races at short tracks all over the country. We’ve been loading up on race highlights for the debut of the network. Some of our highlight packages that fans can see on Wednesday evening for the first time will include action from “The Madhouse” of Bowman Gray Stadium, a wild Southern Super Series race at Montgomery Motor Speedway, Supermodified action from Spitzer Motor Speedway (formerly Mansfield Motorsports Speedway) and Twin 50s for the Valenti Modified Racing Series at Lee USA Speedway.
Speed51.com’s owner and Executive Editor, Bob Dillner, has storage facilities worth of old racing footage that we’ve taken the time to convert to a digital format. That footage can be seen beginning on Thursday when we launch our first “Throwback Thursday” episode, which is another of the many features available on the new 51 Network.
The 51 Network will have highlights from many short tracks from around the country of racing action each and every weekend.
The Network will also be a place for race fans to watch in-car camera action from some of their favorite race car drivers at their favorite race tracks from around the country. Modified drivers such as Ryan Preece and Burt Myers, as well as Late Model drivers such as Bobby Timmons and Kyle Welch are just a few of those who will be contributing their on-board footage to the 51 Network.
Once again race fans, the 51 Network launches on Wednesday evening at 5 p.m. ET.
