You've seen what we can do with a small budget. Now imagine the impact we can have with more.

My name is Matt Weaver and I'm the editor of Short Track Scene! You might recognize me from Autoweek Magazine. That's my full-time job, making my short track work more of a side project.

But make no mistake, this is something I take very seriously. I treat Short Track Scene with the same diligence as Autoweek. We currently have a staff made up of 10 volunteer journalists, photographers and web editors.

I want to make sure my volunteers are rewarded for what they provide short track fans.

I'll be totally honest: I have a pretty cool job. For the first time in my life, I finally have security and flexibility to professionally write about motorsports and I've invested a lot of that money into Short Track Scene.

So the next step is paying contributors and watching our website grow. I want Short Track Scene to cover more regions, disciplines and divisions. But I can't single-handedly do it. Readers tell me every week they wish I could cover the west coast, Midwest or USAC -- but that's expensive.

So this is your chance to fund the kind of short track journalism you wish existed elsewhere.

Your support will NOT go into my pocket.

I will not take a salary from Short Track Scene. Instead, your contributions will go towards the writers and photographers that have already made this one of the most dynamic websites in motorsports. I want to make sure that Paul Lambert, Aaron Bearden, Seth Eggert and Christopher DeHarde at least break even during their coverage.

Further, if you guys are supporting Short Track Scene, I want you to be able to tell us where to go. There's so much going on in the short track world that it's a challenge to know what's most important to you.

So in short, if you like our stories and want to tell us which races to cover, this is your chance to be directly involved with the expansion of short track racing's best independent journalism.

Much like the actual on-track division at tracks across America, this is the entry level of Short Track Scene support.

If you pledge at the street stock level, you will receive a Short Track Scene bumper sticker and a 'thank you' on the Short Track Scene Patreon appreciation page.

Moving out of a street stock and into a sportsman is a sign that you're fully committed to racing and it's the same at Short Track Scene.

Once you pledge to the sportsman level, you will receive a Short Track Scene bumper sticker, a 'thank you' on the Short Track Scene Patreon appreciation page and a personal shoutout on Matt Weaver's Twitter profile, which has nearly 10,000 followers.

This is the major leagues of asphalt short track racing. Once you're in a Late Model, you've decided to go all-in with your love of short track racing.

Once you pledge to the Late Model level, you will receive a Short Track Scene bumper sticker, a 'thank you' on the Short Track Scene Patreon appreciation page and a personal shoutout on Matt Weaver's Twitter profile, which has nearly 10,000 followers.

Lastly, we'll add you to our Staff group page on Facebook. This is where we exchange ideas and decide which races to cover. This essentially makes you our editor and lets us know where we need to be on a given weekend.
