RaceJunk is a site started back in mid-1996. Before Google, Myspace, facebook and others. RaceJunk was started to make it
easier to locate web sites for Race tracks, drivers, leagues and other race related sites on the Internet. In 1997,
Classified Ads were added to the site. Ads were 100% free and no dealers or commercial ads were ever allowed. This
meant the classified ads were by racers and for racers.
In 2007 the site was ten years old and the design of the site had not changed. Classified Ads were moved to
a new system. This new classified system allows for additional features that people were asking about. It
also is easier to manage. Placing a classified ad is still free. Only if additional options for an ad (Featured
listing, Page view counter, Bold Title, etc.) are selected is there any cost for an ad. We do not charge for posting
pictures and do not ask for anything after an item is sold. There is a facility for rating a seller and payment of
any type will not improve your rating as it is strictly up to the users. We also now have a Live
Support option if you should need assistance with the classified system. Feel free to check out our new Classified System.
Our Web Site Link system was also upgraded in December 2007, to allow better management of web site links, better search ability, additional
site details on the links and more. Also our technical documents and calculators (some still to be moved) are also integrated
into the link system. The system also verifies all the links on the site to avoid having links to sites
that have moved or no longer exist. Visitors can still add their own links. Adding links is free although for certain
types of links such as featured links there is a cost. If adding a link and unsure which type of link you should select,
you probably want the Free Link. Nothing wrong with free!
Also being added is blog so I can tell you what I think in Racing today,
Racing related Videos and an area for
Car Clubs to post info on their groups, car shows & events. Look for a new Message Board to be on-line in the next few
The site is still free to use. The site has grown significantly since its start in 1996. We now have moved to a much more
powerful server to support all the visitors to RaceJunk.com and more powerful applications we now run. We have added
additional options and now have advertisements to help support the cost of operating this web site. It is my hope that none
of these things will effect the racer or race fan experience on RaceJunk.com. Also instead of just one person, there are several
people who volunteer their time to expand on the site and support visitors. A big Thanks goes to these dedicated people.
And who am I? My name is Paul. I have raced myself (mainly paved oval and road course), worked on a pit crew and as a crew
chief. Have also been a fan of almost all forms of Auto Racing since I was very young. Starting with Drag Racing (anyone
remember Jungle Jim Liberman?) and as a teenager NASCAR, Formula 1, USAC IndyCars, Trans-Am and onto to anything with at
least two wheels.
I have worked on the Internet since before web sites existed and in the early 1990's designed some of
the very first web sites. Eventually I merged my love of Racing with my work on the Internet. For ten years I not only
worked on the web site but paid all costs out-of-pocket. While now there are advertisements on some pages and some options
(you do not need to select them) that have a cost they are only to ease the financial burden of the
site and be able to expand the features of RaceJunk that have been requested. I earn my living in computer network support
& web site design and not from this site. Yes I do design & host web sites for race teams, drivers and manufacturers but
keep that seperate from this site. Racejunk is more a hobby to help out the Racing community. Feel free to let me know
how I am doing.

Racejunk gets thousands of visitors each day now and it has grown in size. It is my hope it will continue to
grow and serve the Racers and Race fans for years to come.
