a brief history of the site...
I always had a thought of making my own website since going on my buddy sean's computer (he had AOL which to me was like the be all end all I still put over AOL's browser)
Anyways I had this idea and over the years finally I got the idea to start the website well the early days of the site was me making stories up it was like TMZ with a WWE spin.
It was crazy. Then in 2008 I had enough money I contacted Front Row Motorsports I began to sponsor FRM whenever I could the first race doorstopnation was represted was the 2008 "Best Buy 400"
It was a instant hit, but I figured there wasnt enough people talking so I announced a doorstop giveaway for that years Pocono race.
I'm not joking that press release was everywhere I got emails from everywhere I even got a email from some of the troops in Iraq later that year my dad and I sent a bunch of stuff out to help the troops(nobody sends me emails anymore that makes me sad)
Anyways I sent out hundreds of doorstops everywhere to a car dealership in Flordia to a carpet buisness in Ohio it was crazy.
