A word from the President

As of April 22, 2002 became available to subscribers only.  We pulled out of the field of business based on Internet advertising into one that caters to our readers who agree is worth the price of a subscription.  In doing so, we are following the trend of many other websites becoming subscription-based and free of annoying pop-up ads.

For our initial three years we provided our customers a free service. The cost to do this was covered by its owners.   One of our strengths is that we are not dependent on advertisers (for the most part) and work hard to satisfy our readers.  In order to become better, we have decided to evolve into a subscription based online magazine.

Many of you probably cancelled some of the print magazines you used to subscribe to with the advent of the internet, because the internet is so much more immediate and timely.  Because of technology, we can bring you the news much faster than a print publication.  Articles, reports, commentary, images, and fellow racing enthusiasts to debate with online - we try to bring it all to you, and pledge to do even better.

Now in our 10th year, we have developed a loyal following, with readership skyrocketing. The fact that you are here reading this hopefully means we are doing something right.

All revenue generated for this service will be plowed back into - - web servers, programmers, travel expenses, hosting, and the like. When you purchase a subscription, you have our promise that we remain independent and committed only to you, our customer.  Not to NASCAR, not to Champ Car, not to anyone but you.  For those of you who know us, you know we can be controversial at times, sometimes even politically incorrect, but we say it like we see it without outside influence to temper what we really mean to say.

In addition,  We are pleased to offer to any customer that subscribes to AutoRacing1, 10% off all merchandise purchased from SPEEDGEAR.  This offer is only available to those who subscribe to  To take advantage of this offer, first register to AutoRacing1.  When you are ready to order from SPEEDGEAR, click on our Racing Store page and follow the instructions to receive the 10% discount.

We thank all of you for your support.
