It is no secret that the economy kicked the short track racing industry in their virtual behind over the last five years. Maintaining car counts and attendance has been a full time job and has caused sponsorships to suffer. Smaller tracks often lack the manpower to reach major sponsors and when they do are often ignored by national sponsors.
Humpy and Trip Wheeler are going to help change all of that by putting the power of 1000 short tracks to work together to attract major national sponsors. They will also save tracks money on stuff they need every week. This is not a sanctioning body this is a marketing alliance.
This week we feature an exclusive in-depth interview with Trip Wheeler. Learn about Trip’s amazing career in sports marketing and the details about how Speedway Benefits will help grow the short track industry. Tracks can put the marketing power of the big leagues to work for them at no cost by signing up at the Speedways Benefits website.
Skagit Speedway is one of the most exciting dirt tracks in the country. Owner and Promoter Steve Beitler was a regular on the World of Outlaws tour before hanging up his driving gloves and taking over at Skagit. Steve joins us to recap the season and also to let us know why his track signed up with Speedway Benefits.
Stan Creekmore has been one of the best in the business covering motorsports for decades and has teamed up with John Kernan to bring the legacy of the old RPM2Night television show to the web. We visit with Stan to talk about the RPM2Night.com website and his views on NASCAR.
