LegendsNation.com (LN) is the premier Legend Cars and Bandolero news media website online. The website, which is owned and operated by Brian Nagy, provides news and information on the various forms of racing under the U.S. Legend Cars International and INEX brand of motorsports, including Legend Cars, Bandolero Cars, Legend Dirt Modifieds, and Thunder Cars.
In 2006, motorsports TV personality Bob Dillner felt a need in the motorsports industry outside of the Speed51.com short track news website (owned by 51 Sports, a company by Dillner and his brother Matthew) for a web presence specifically covering Legend Cars and Bandolero racing action. In 2007, 51 Sports hired Jason “Stix” Buckley, President of STIX FX Entertainment, to help build and manage the new website. The name LegendsNation.com was selected and the website went live in April of that year.
Over the next few years, LN became the leading authority in Legend Cars and Bandolero news online, and was supported by fans, drivers, teams, tracks, and businesses within the sport.
At the beginning of 2010, 51 Sports decided to merge LN back into Speed51.com, closing the individual website down. Shortly after, Buckley left 51 Sports to help another company form a new Legends and Bandolero specific website. However, after a few months, Dillner agreed to allow Buckley’s STIX FX Entertainment acquire the name and all rights to the LegendsNation.com brand. In May of 2010 the website went back online under the STIX FX Entertainment ownership, and despite some competition from another highly-staffed and financially-supported news media website, LN grew once again to the most-respected and visited Legends and Bandolero website online.
In 2012, after two successful years of growth with the website, rumors of the closure of LN floated around the industry after STIX FX Entertainment announced a new website covering the entire field of motorsports. This caused multiple new Legends and Bandolero news media sources to crop up and try to take LN’s place as the premier news website for INEX competition. Rather than compete, STIX FX Entertainment decided bow out of the “online war” to focus on client website development and marketing services. LegendsNation.com went dark once again.
Unfortunately, while LN was offline, the industry took a big blow when all of the websites that stepped up to take LN’s place either folded or were not updated to the standards the racing community was accustomed to. Buckley at STIX FX Entertainment was flooded with requests from everyone in the industry, including business owners, drivers, teams, and track promoters, to bring LegendsNation.com back to service the industry. However, current year business obligations as well as the formation of a new website by a former reporter of LN nixed the idea until late 2014, when Buckley started making a plan to include bringing back LegendsNation.com in 2015.
In January of 2015, LN came back online once again, and in June of 2015, Brian Nagy acquired LegendsNation.com from Buckley and STIX FX Entertainment.
