Motor Racing Network Launches Redesigned Website

Motor Racing Network, long known as “The Voice of NASCAR,” is now also extending its reach in the digital arena with today’s launch of its redesigned website.

The new address features a shorter URL -- www.MRN.com -- and a longer list of features available to motor sports fans including reporter blogs from its award-winning editorial staff, a high-definition home page video player and “fast-flow” tabs for instant navigation from every section of the site.
The new-look MRN.com continues the evolution of the network’s digital presence nearly three years to the day after the introduction of a comprehensive motor sports website that included a robust menu of exclusive online content which remains a key component of MRN.com moving forward.
“We launched our website originally as MotorRacingNetwork.com to ensure that race fans could find our trusted reporting and authentic programming,” said MRN President and Executive Producer David Hyatt.  “As our traffic has increased, along with the emergence of social media as a way of communicating with our NASCAR audience, the shortened MRN.com URL just makes sense.  I challenged our digital team to create something special and we’ve achieved that.  It’s a new web address but with the same standards of excellence and integrity fans have come to expect from the Motor Racing Network.”

    Every two seconds the "follow us on Facebook and twitter" butterfly interrupts your viewing. When are these websites going to learn that the people viewing them are smart enough to make that decision on their own. NASCAR screwed up their website badly, it looks like MRN is following in their footsteps.

    Why would you launch a new website in this day and age and NOT have it mobile-friendly? Have MRN's web designers ever heard of responsive web design? -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Responsive_web_design -- Take a look at the new www.MRN.com on an iPhone and you'll see what I mean. I'll stick with the NASCAR Mobile '13 app...for now!

    Format is same as NASCAR.COM which is oh so user friendly - guessing there was a 2-for-1 deal on the design.
