The evolution of the new, more comprehensive website – which features an in-depth statistics package, driver blogs and exclusive online programming – extends the network’s reach far beyond the award-winning NASCAR coverage it’s been producing for more than four decades.
“This is the culmination of a year-long effort to reinforce MRN Radio’s presence in the motor sports marketplace and we couldn’t be more proud of the end product,” said Web Manager Craig Moore. “When fans log onto the new site, they’ll find everything they need to satisfy their racing appetites. Their online home for motor sports news and information just got better.”
Driver blogs are part of the new site, with Mike Skinner from the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and NHRA Funny Car ace Ron Capps headlining the list of competitors currently blogging on www.MotorRacingNetwork.com. Joining Capps and Skinner are Trevor Bayne from the NASCAR Nationwide Series, NHRA Top Fuel driver Antron Brown and Frank Kimmel from the ARCA Series.
To help further introduce racing fans to the new MotorRacingNetwork.com, MRN Radio has developed a wide range of exclusive online programming including the “World of Outlaws Report,” a weekly podcast that provides an inside look at the winged wonders and the men who drive them. A fresh edition of the program is posted to www.MotorRacingNetwork.com each Tuesday.
The “Standing Start Formula One Report” provides insight to the global intrigue and engineering genius of Formula One – delivering news, event updates, inside information, interviews, and feature stories with leading personalities and top performers each Wednesday following an F1 race. And the “Straight Line” is a weekly podcast that provides a penetrating look at the world of drag racing, with a new version up every Thursday morning.
MRN Radio recently produced two online specials exclusive to MotorRacingNetwork.com, previewing last month’s Knoxville Nationals for the World of Outlaws and the NHRA U.S. Nationals earlier this month at Indianapolis.
In addition to race results, the extensive statistical section features up-to-date standings for all major series, pre- and post-race NASCAR Loop Data, driver averages and Sprint Cup Series Fantasy Racing previews.
While the new website retains an emphasis on NASCAR and its three top national series (Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Trucks), the new MotorRacingNetwork.com also features many other forms of racing including the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series, IndyCar, ARCA and the AMA.
“Our new content is giving fans of all racing disciplines an authentic connection to the sport they love,” said MRN President David Hyatt. “We will continue to be ‘The Voice of NASCAR’ on the air but will also be a more far-reaching motor sports authority in the digital arena.”
