Raceway Media Teams Up with Pittsburgh Raceway Park

Share Article

Adding to its growing network of partner tracks across the country, today Raceway Media announced a deal with Pittsburgh Raceway Park. Similar to other agreements, RacingJunk.com will become the official classified website of the popular western Pennsylvania drag strip, which was recently honored as IHRA Pro Am Division 1 "Track of the Year" for the third year in a row.

"Most people associate Pittsburgh with great football, but it has an equally impressive history in racing," said Pittsburgh Raceway Park owner Mike Tedesco. "We want to attract more people to the track and Raceway Media, with its wide national and international membership, can help us do that. At the same time, we can provide our racers access to RacingJunk.com's valuable tools and services."

In addition to serving as the official classified website for the track, RacingJunk.com will help Pittsburgh Raceway Park to promote the venue and its events through banner advertisements. The drag strip, in turn, will highlight RacingJunk.com with promotional flyers and public announcements at events through out the year.

"These partnerships give us the opportunity to introduce our members to some of the great tracks across the country," said Osmin Alvarez, CEO of Raceway Media. "We are looking forward to helping Mike and his team to promote their events and we're pleased to bring our services to the Pittsburgh Raceway Park racers."

As Raceway Media continues to expand its reach nationally, its membership, which is now over 155,000, follows suit. The multimedia company credits the racers for much of this success, and to thank them, last month they announced the "Give Back to the Racers Tour 2007." Details about the $55,000 sponsorship giveaway can be found online at http://www.RacingJunk.com/s/55giveaway.


Raceway Media LLC, a Boxcar Media, LLC Company, is a multimedia publishing firm servicing the racing and performance enthusiasts industries. It is a free 'one-stop shop' for those looking to buy, sell, trade, entertain or interact with people throughout the automotive and motorcycle racing and performance communities.

The company's holdings include RacingJunk.com and the newly launched MotorcycleJunk.com, which together receive more than 50 million page views per month and have more than 150,000 members. Raceway Media also owns BoatingJunk.com, MuscleCarJunk.com, TunerJunk.com, ImportJunk.com and RacingJunkRides.com. A new division, "Raceway Productions," produces, distributes and broadcasts content of racing related events.


Located 35 miles east of Pittsburgh in New Alexandria, PA, this historic ¼ mile drag strip opened in 1968 as Keystone Raceway Park. Keystone was the region's only drag strip for 35 years and was sanctioned by National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) for over 20 years. In 2002, the track changed hands, underwent major renovations, and new operators Mike Tedesco and Fred Kohl switched the sanction to the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA).

Since changing sanctions, Pittsburgh Raceway Park has hosted many IHRA events including Summit Super Series and Pro Am Division 1, for which it has been honored as "Track of the Year" for 3 years in a row.
