Content will include past and present standout images from both professional and sportsman competition, celebrating the thunderous power of nitro cars and the grassroots of the sport.

“While our primary focus will be on presenting today’s drag racing experience as it happens, will also provide the opportunity to dust off some of the really cool photos from the past that are just sitting in the Auto Imagery archives,” said Shute. “Our database includes nearly a million incredible images, each with a story to tell.

“I speak for everyone on our team when I say that we are very excited to get off the ground in time for the 2011 season and the 60th anniversary of NHRA Drag Racing.”
