Whether it’s a new race car, new house or new t-shirt, everybody likes new things.  That goes for all of us here at Speed51.com as well.  While we may not be adding a new race car to our studio, we have added a pair of new categories to the 51 Awards for the 2017 racing season.


The two new categories — Best Racing Destination and Best Video — can be voted on now on Speed51.com.  With the addition of these two new categories, 20 different awards can now be voted on by race fans.


300x250 2017 51 AwardsBest Racing Destination is an award that honors a destination that offers more than just great short track racing.  With 20 different destinations to choose from, race fans have a tough choice to make.  From the beautiful Fall foliage in Vermont to the excitement of Las Vegas, there are plenty of great racing destinations to chose from for this inaugural award.

The Best Video category gives racing fans a chance to view 20 of Speed51.com’s best videos from the 2017 season.  While we already have the Best Finish category, this category allows race fans to vote on more than just great finishes.  From the best crashes to our most-viewed video productions, this category offers a little bit of everything.

Fans can make their way to Speed51.com once a day and submit one ballot per day, per email. Our staff will be hard at work to ensure that voting is fair, and any party found to be cheating (racers never cheat, right?) will have all their votes disqualified.


Voting for the 2017 Speed51 Awards will end on Sunday, March 4 at 11:59 p.m. ET. The winners of this year’s “51’s” will be revealed beginning Tuesday, March 6.
