RaceNewYork Forum Changes Upcoming

This forum software has been our home for over 10 years...and with all the changes in the world of social media over the past several years we've decided to move to a more modern platform.  Actually, this has been in the works since February 2020, but due to the abbreviated racing season last year the plans were put off until 2021.

We anticipate most everything on RaceNewYork will be transferred over. That's an important consideration because this site holds generations worth of historical content that tells much of the story of auto racing in our region.

It's my hope that the new system will allow greater ability to engage socially, whether it be from the comforts of your home computer, or from the grandstands of your favorite track. Where racing is happening in our region...we want to be there!


We are anticipating the rollout to be in the March 1, 2021 time frame.

Questions?  Request for features?  Format changes?  Use this thread to discuss them please...


Thanks for supporting RaceNewYork,

- RaceNY Admin Dave

Hi Dennis,

I'm certain the experience will remain very familiar for desktop users, only better. My use of the terminology "social media" really only applies to features that allow mobile users greater access. Otherwise it still will be a forum just like it always has been.

It’s a great honor to be a member of this forum. This past year has been difficult for all aspects of life.

I’m hopeful that we can soon resume attending racing events at the local tracks and support our sport!

NOTE: Wow, I just noticed Google has gone crazy with these advertisements. I'll be working on a way so they are not as obtrusive. Sorry for this now, still trying to tweak the new forum.
