FRONTSTRETCH 2021 OPEN POSITIONS
Updated February 15, 2021
Our website is one of the most popular NASCAR sites on the internet, reaching over 2 million page views in 2020. It’s a great place to both begin and continue your writing career, and over the years many distinguished Frontstretch alumni have moved on to careers in public relations and NASCAR writing all over the U.S. Several other writers here have hosted radio, podcasts and associated themselves with national publications such as Athlon Sports, CBS, FOX and more.
- Frontstretch.com LLC is an equal opportunity employer. Interested applicants for Editorial/Management should email email@example.com with a cover letter, resume and references.
- For writing positions, there’s a specific audition process. Please read the Contributors section below.
NEW! Social Media Intern
NEW! Sales Intern
Frontstretch is looking for a seasonal intern to work with our growing sales team. This position is unpaid but will offer class credit to eligible college students looking to fulfill graduation requirements.
Are you looking for a fast-growing website that can give you an opportunity to not only share your thoughts on racing but have FUN doing it with a group of laid-back, dedicated personnel? Well, we have the place for you. Frontstretch is now seeking one open wheel-specific writer (IndyCar, F1) to join our growing staff. The job would begin by March 1, 2021.
ENTRY-LEVEL CONTRIBUTOR OPENINGS
So, what are the qualifications to become part of the Frontstretch family? Simple. As long as you can write clearly and make your reader think, dream, laugh, cry, swear or hunt you down and beat you to a pulp, then you’re just who we are looking for!
For those interested in auditioning, we’d like you to write three articles based on the themes below:
- 1: A 250- to 500-word news article about a 2021 NASCAR storyline with a hard news focus. (No commentary or opinion, please).
- 2: A commentary of around 1,000 words on what one change you think NASCAR (or INDYCAR) needs to make and why. You’ll also detail what the best solution is to the problem. Not only should this column have a point, but it should come across in both a creative and exciting way. In other words, don’t just speak your mind without a firm foundation; any opinion should be solidly supported by facts.
- 3: A piece that has NOTHING to do with NASCAR. That’s right; even an article about why you should write for Frontstretch will result in an automatic disqualification. Instead, write about anything else you can think of that doesn’t involve racing. There’s no word limit on this one; just remember, with any type of audition piece, the longer it is, the more impressive it must be to retain its audience.
Simply email these three examples to our editors at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll go from there!
