Whether it’s on the dusty dirt tracks or asphalt bullrings, Street Stocks are the fan-favorite grassroots level of stock car racing. Street Stocks put on some of the most door-banging and exciting events throughout the short track world. Fans can relate to the mom n’ pop stories throughout the Street Stock pit areas. There are no big stacker trailers or high-dollar crewmembers in the Street Stock divisions, just racers who do it solely for the love of the sport.
Street Stock Nation, a Facebook page with nearly 14,000 grassroots racing fans following it, has helped spread the word about Street Stock racing from coast-to-coast. Now, Speed51.com powered by JEGS, the 100% Short Track Racing website, has partnered with Street Stock Nation to bring the stories, photos and more from the Street Stock ranks to a wider audience.
Street Stock Nation powered by Speed51.com will feature its Facebook stream on the front page and all story pages of #TheNew51, Speed51.com’s new-look web presence that launched on June 2. In addition, 51 and SSN will partner to bring even more Street Stock racing to a wider short track racing audience through features and event coverage to be announced soon.
“I love Street Stocks, in fact, I still have one in a field in North Carolina that I don’t have time to race anymore,” said Bob Dillner, owner of Speed51.com and NASCAR TV broadcaster for FOX Sports. “We at Speed51.com have wanted to cover more Street Stock action around the US and this is the perfect way to do so. Jody Salter has a unique passion and we enjoy working together with him.”
Street Stock Nation features photos, race stories, driver information and more about Street Stock racing throughout North America. SSN, through its partnership with Speed51.com, will be able to cover more Street Stock action and have its content seen by even more passionate short track racing fans.
“Street Stock Nation was created to promote solely the sport of Street Stock racing, from the drivers to the tracks to the products, as well as the companies that support this exciting division of racing,” said Jody Salter, founder of Street Stock Nation. “We have had a overwhelming response to our Facebook Feed from all over the country and Canada too. With growing Series like the Mississippi Street Stock Series, Texas Shoot Out Series, NeSmith Street Stock Series and many more, the Street Stock scene has seen a huge growth spurt and Street Stock Nation is dedicated to ensure it continues.
“The partnership with Speed51.com and their huge fan base is an exciting deal for us at Street Stock Nation and we are looking forward to the growth and exposure that it brings to Street Stock racing throughout North America.”
