Contributors

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.

Current Openings

  • None at this time, but you are welcome to submit an application if you choose.

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 2022 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 frontstretcheditors@googlegroups.com and we’ll go from there!
