Each year, Speed51.com powered by JEGS continues to raise the bar when it comes to covering and promoting the sport of short track racing.  Much of that is due to the dedicated team of Speed51 staff members who have a true passion for the trade.  As we turn over the calendar and enter 2016, we’re now on the prowl to find more of those passionate individuals to join the Speed51.com team.


If you ever thought that you’d enjoy going to different tracks and covering the sport of short track racing, now is the time to join the Speed51.com team.  51 is currently seeking journalists, photographers and videographers throughout the United States and Canada.

As the leader in short track racing news and information, 51 provides aspiring journalists with the opportunity to have their work displayed in front of the most loyal short track racing fans in the world.  In addition to the career-building potential, the position also offers short track racing enthusiasts the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes and experience some of the greatest racing events in the world.


Speed51.com contributors are responsible for contributing to 51’s popular Trackside Now coverage, providing short track racing updates on 51’s social media outlets and crafting unique post-race and featured stories.


Speed51.com photographers are responsible for working with the at-track team to provide unique photo content to our loyal readers during the event, as well as providing post-race galleries on the Speed51.com Five Star Facebook Feed.


With the launch of the Speed51 Network less than one year ago, that has also opened the door for potential videographers and in-car camera specialists to become a part of the Speed51.com team.


Previous experience working within the industry is preferred, but not required.  More important than experience is the desire to succeed and work with a group of individuals dedicated to short track racing.


If you are interested in joining the Speed51.com team for the upcoming season, please email Speed51.com Executive Director Matt Kentfield at [email protected]. Please include your previous experiences, why you’re interested in joining the team, your location and your availability for the 2016 racing season.  Resumes and previous work samples are not required, but certainly accepted.
