RuRa is alive for another year.

Thanks to those below for their donations. Next years hosting bill is paid. RuRa is going to have it's 20th birthday!

Google Adsense is no longer viable to pay our web hosting bill. For about a year the earning of advertising has been cut by more than half while the traffic and page views has barely changed. This being said our next web hosing bill is due August 9th. We will need nearly $500 to keep the site alive for another year. We are running close to needing to upgrade our space again, at that time we will be looking at an additional $10 a month for additional space. I don't expect we will need this for another 6 months or so.

I welcome anyone that wishes to keep the forum alive in it's current form to donate to the forum. My Paypal is webmaster@rubbins-racin.com .

    Pretty cool honestly, but.... did it assume my gender?!?!?!?

    Also not surprised about that, just about anything tech related nowadays could be scanning your face.

          It was an interesting attempt, but didn't make nearly a big enough difference. Perhaps if it were a longer race it may have, but with the format being what it was, it seemed like the fall off was right at the end of the last segment, which did nobody any good.

                Probably got a hell of a deal for multiple reasons - digital contingency (no decal on the Cup cars) and all the talk is about the Cup Series (even though it was previously reported that a pole sponsor had to sponsor every NASCAR division)

                  Advance Auto Parts is sponsoring it for IDK how long.

                  • Lowe's leaving NASCAR in 2019. http://www.hendrickmotorsports.com/n...ponsor-in-2019

                    This is a major hit for HMS and the sport.

                    • Wow, that pretty shocking news. Lowe's has been a primary sponsor every year since 1995, and their absence will be noted.

                      • As much as I hate Jimmie, it is a blow to the sport. Lowe's is one of the few remaining sponsors to foot the bill for the full season. I remember when they came into the sport with Junior Johnson in 95, and it will be so weird not having them around.

                        • I heard during the off season that their bill was up towards the $40 mil mark, stupid money especially in this day and age.

                          Huge blow but I had been wondering how long they would keep up that kind of spending.

                            Jesus, i remember reading in 09, it was like 26 million. Not sure if that was for the whole year. I can't remember.

                            • Good, couldn't have happened to a worse sport and I think it's funny it's happening to Jimmie. NASCAR done this to themselves so they have no one else to blame. Hopefully this will be the wake up call for them, I doubt it but hopefully.

                              • The major sponsors are going to fall like crazy. There is very little ROI in NASCAR anymore...with internet advertising and such. Teams will have to piecemeal their seasons or figure out a way to cut costs.
