In Reply to: ???????? No more Jayski by Traveler on January 29, 2019 at 2:05pm

Jayski suffered from the problems of NASCAR.   So is RaceRap!   Our traffic is down more than half as it was in the day.   I know that people say that it is Facebook, but that is not the case.   You can not get from Facebook, what you can get from dedicated websites like Jayski, Speed51, Race 22 or RaceRap.     I know the others won't admit it, but all of the racing sites have less traffic then they did 10 years ago.

There are many reasons.    NASCAR sucks.   Local racing has become in many places BORING,   and. nobody, but nobody knows how to promote themselves.   Those that think Facebook helps them, needs to realize that Facebook prevents 99% of your "friends" from ever seeing your post.    The drivers run the show, and the promotors allow it.   No real racing, no fun, not worth the trip.   I know literally dozens of people that went to the races every week, that tell me that they haven't seen a race in years!     I have a close friend that has gone to every Bristol, Richmond and Daytona 500 race for over 50 years!    He stopped going last year!     My insurance agent went to over a dozen NASCAR races for 25 years until Toyota was allowed in.   He left over that!    Many stopped when Sr. was killed,   many more left over the new racing format.    For the time, sorry to say that racing is dead.

We keep RaceRap going out of duty.   Probably will continue to, especially now that TamcoPaint is doing so well.   We lose money on it every month, and will for the foreseeable future

There was a time, everyone knew who RaceRap was that was interested in racing.   Maybe 20% know today..   I was talking to someone (a young driver at Langley) the other day.   He did not know who we were, he never heard of Speed51 or Race 22,   he don't even visit the Langley website much.....   Ironically he doesn't ever read FaceBook.   FB is for old timers now. Kids have moved on to new platforms.
