On to the next chapter

Richard Allen

For the past ten years, I have teamed with Michael Moats to produce content for InsideDirtRacing.com and InsideCircleTrack.com, but that run is now coming to an end. The Blue-Gray 100 at Cherokee Speedway was my last race to cover for the websites.

Before going any further, I would like to offer my sincere thanks to Michael for being an awesome partner in this venture. He has provided great content in the way of articles as well as photographs. Also, and perhaps most importantly as far as I am concerned, his technical work has kept the site up and running throughout its history.

I look forward to many more years of friendship with Michael going forward.

Now, for what’s next. I will still be producing racing related content but in a new location(more on that later). My oldest son, Cody, is working on a computer science degree from the University of Tennessee so the plan is for him to build a new website so that he can add that achievement to his resume in hopes of landing future internships and/or a permanent job. Since he needs to build the site from the ground up, we will need to choose a new domain name which will be made known soon.

There are also plans for my son Austin to join the fray as well.

There are several things that we hope to bring together in the next year or so. I will still be producing coverage of dirt racing as well as NASCAR on our new site. Also, I have a fictional book with a dirt racer as the main character that should be completed within a few months.

My sons hope to provide gaming content as well as racing perspectives from their much younger points of view. There is the possibility of a racing related app that we are looking into.

I have very much enjoyed the past decade of working with Michael but I could not resist the opportunity to get my sons involved in something that I have a deep passion for.

I would also like to thank the racers who have been so cooperative in terms of giving up their time for interviews and conversations. I look forward to the continuation of those relationships.

Most of all, thank you to those who have taken time out of your lives to read the things I have written. I look forward to continuing to serve you in the future.

Much appreciation,

Richard Allen
