Hello
I would like to announce the opening of www.checkeredflag.cc , a portal site just for dirt lovers. The idea behind the site is similar to that of Lycos, excite and others that collection of information on one page. Visitors will post this is what Checkered Flag is, but the information and stories will be posted by web site users. I have been in contact with other webmasters and will be more in the coming weeks about posting an article time to time. If you are a PR person or webmaster check out the bottom of the message for more info how to post the site and get your own news category. What I am hoping to do with this is to get all the sites exposure by putting together a comprehensive pool of information. Right now the site is 85-90% up and running with a few more features to be added and more posting categories.


****************Features******************
Online

Search engine- Through Google
User news submission / Commenting on stories /
Poll / Survey - Current poll - What is your favorite series
Events calendar / Series schedules at a glance- The Even Calendar will like a planner that visitors can add the big races or there own special events.
My Weather.- Once signed up for the site you can set the weather to your favorite track for up to the minute updates.
Web Directory- Add links of your site or your favorite drivers.
Forums

And more if I see something that will fit with the site.


****************************************

Webmasters interested in submitting one of your stories time to time. Email me (brian@chanceracing.com) with a logo for your site (check the site for examples). I would like to keep the images down to 100x100 pixels. Then I will set up the category for you so that you can post a story with your web sites logo. I am not asking for every story your site runs just something time to time to keep the content fresh and visitors seeing your work.

PR people there will be PR sections set up soon for tracks, drivers, web sites, and events
