We as race fans are very fortunate to have so many Web sites that cater to the sport. The variety that’s out there is like trying to choose a favorite place to eat, shop, or even a place to enjoy our leisure time.

It’s no hidden secret that the everyday fan will always choose a website that has everything: statistics, latest news & rumor headlines, race day information, driver tributes, paint schemes, and anything under the sun that pertains to NASCAR.

If you search hard enough, you could even find a site that would help you with the proper way to display the American Flag.

Jay Adamczyk, better known as “Jayski” to us NASCAR junkies, has been an icon in the online community since 1996.

What Jayski has done with the site since then, is open up a whole new world for the veteran as well as the newest of NASCAR fans.

Jayski’s Silly Season Site, as it is known, is a smorgasbord of detailed, up to date information and tidbits which cover the entire NASCAR world.  

Jayski’s prominence, along with his popularity within the NASCAR community, has catapulted him into the No. 2 spot, just ahead of Foxsports.com.

Jayski’s faithful readers account for more than a quarter million unique visitors,  nearly 11 million total minutes per month just behind No. 1 ranked NASCAR.com.

Hosted by ESPN, Jayski has been able to take the idea of NASCAR Internet surfing to whole new and exciting level. A big part of that is the new site design that has just been launched.

Some of the new features that can be found are: a new global navigation bar has also been added across the top of the page for quick navigation to some of Jayski.com’s most popular areas.

Jayski.com has also added new executions on the front page and index pages, and features cleaner, bolder ad units for more engaging ad solutions.

The redesign also features newly enhanced advertising opportunities with more options and increased flexibility for marketers. 

It started as a class project by a Federal Aviation Administration programmer in 1996, by December of 1999 it became a full time job, and by April of 2007 it was acquired by ESPN.

Today, 13 years later, who better to help launch the new site than Amp Energy in conjunction with the 16th running of the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard?

One man's dream and one journey deserves a big congratulations on a job well done.
