About The Racing Insiders

The Racing Insiders were formed in 2017 covering motorsports at local dirt and paved race tracks throughout the midwest in the United States. As our website and followers evolved, we turned our focus to the top four series of NASCAR in 2018 (Cup, Xfinity, Truck, ARCA).

The Racing Insiders joined the NASCAR Media Network in 2019 which has allowed us to share content with our viewers that you will not see anywhere else.

In 2020 we launched a brand new website and are committed to attending a majority of the races for the season as media reporters. As of February 2020 we averaged over 35,000 website views per-month.

The Racing Insiders is owned by TS Media Productions LLC based out of Minnesota.
