LegendsNation.com to Merge into New MotorsportsLounge.com Website
New Site will continue Legends and Bandolero News Coverage Worldwide
[07-07-12] On Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012, STIX FX Entertainment, parent company of LegendsNation.com (“LN”), the premier Legends Car and Bandolero news media website online, announced the re-birth of MotorsportsLounge.com (“ML”). Today, July 7th, it has been announced LN will merge into the new ML website with Legends Car and Bandolero news and information to be a big part of the website.
“We have been extremely excited to make this announcement for some time,” said Jason “Stix” Buckley, President of STIX FX Entertainment. “We wanted to hold off a bit longer before officially announcing MotorsportsLounge.com was coming back and the merger of the websites, but the information was starting to leak out, so we decided it was time to make the announcement.”
In April, 2012, five years after LN was announced, STIX FX Entertainment published a news story regarding the future of the website. The new “LN Project” was made known, but little details were announced at that time.
“We knew at that time we were going to be merging LN into the new ML, but we weren’t ready to announce the name change, so we called it the LN project,” explained Buckley. “We were trying to quiet down the rumors then that the website was closing. Many of the rumors were started by others trying to copy our business model then profit from it, and others due to the lack of posting news directly on the LN website. We stopped developing LN on its own to focus on the new ML website.”
MotorsportsLounge.com, founded in 2001 by STIX FX Entertainment, became the largest and most prestigious official message board hosting service for drivers, tracks, series and teams in motorsports. The website was shut down after the websites Facebook.com and Twitter.com took over the social media world. While the new focus is being kept quiet, there will be some old elements mixed in with new concepts for the ML website.
“We have a lot of ideas and formulas currently in the works for the new website. Some are things people are used to online, and a few others are a blend of some old and new concepts never before seen in the online motorsports world. We are very excited to roll through the build phases and push our concepts out to the public.”
Even though the specifics haven’t been made public yet, one thing Buckley has made known is that Legends and Bandolero news and information will continue to be a big part of the ML website.
“We are NOT abandoning the Legends and Bandolero community,” said Buckley. “Instead we are using them to be a big part of the foundation of the new website.
“We have some great sponsors that have been with us for a long time, but it has been a struggle over the past few years keeping LegendsNation.com going with full funding. It isn’t due to a lack of support from the drivers and teams, but more about the scale cars being very niche in the motorsports world. We have approached multi-million dollar companies with our new ML concept and we are now getting some financial backing we couldn’t get with LN. This is good news for the Legends and Bandolero community as they will now receive more international coverage and traffic on the new website than LN has been able to provide in the past.”
Dismissing Rumors on the Change
Recently, after the announcement of LegendsNation.com merging into the new MotorsportsLounge.com, rumors surfaced that the new ML would not have Legends and Bandolero news and information. We have even heard rumors that another new site is calling themselves the new LegendsNation.com, and that we are selling the domain name off to them.
These rumors are false. STIX FX Entertainment solely owns the LegendsNation.com name, logos, and likeness (as well as MotorsportsLounge.com). Furthermore, ML will absolutely continue to have Legends and Bandolero news and information, and, in fact, Legends and Bandoleros are being used as the building platform for the new website.
Unfortunately, the false information has been reported to be coming from an individual and / or organization that has perpetuated documented fraud, copyright infringement, and improper business dealings in the motorsports community. STIX FX Entertainment will not have any business dealings with this individual and / or business due to their documented bad business ethics.
