    Jayski Update

    from Reddit

    Scott Page
    The nameservers seem to still be updating this morning, so you may occasionally get directed to ESPN. However, we now have the domain pointing to my server. It will stay there until we have a deal to go back live with a full site. Obtaining the domain was the first big hurdle to overcome. Hopefully things will start progressing quickly now.

    The deal worked well at the time it started and ESPN got back into NASCAR, but over the years their priorities changed. I don't fault them for that. It happens with all businesses. They did us a huge favor by letting is work towards restarting the site. They had not obligation to do that. They owned the site and gave it back.

    "Jay has now regained ownership of the jayski.com domain. We are currently working on a deal to relaunch the website as soon as possible.Those discussions are underway, but nothing has been finalized yet. Until a deal is finished, the site will contain limited information. We don't want to rebuld the site without knowing what platform we will be operating on in the future. As soon as there's something to announce, it will be posted here".

    I'm glad they sensed enough demand to restart the site.

    Hopefully they can build it into something that a larger sports empire will want to buy.

    It's up, looking good. Slightly updated layout, but very familiar.

    This is very good news... have always been a daily visitor to Jayski. If they solicit contributors to keep the lights on, I'll be receptive to that. And just a tiny little rant... I did not appreciate... in the early days of this thread... those few blowhards who seemed to derive joy from Jayski's demise. I hope the crow tastes bland and bitter.

    I love it. I go to the site, and the weekend schedule (with TV info) is right there. I can now go back to almost never visiting NASCAR.com. Sweet deal.

    Podcast: Rumors and the rise, fall and rebirth of Jayski’s Silly Season

    The most famous – and at one point, the most powerful – website in NASCAR history started as a class project in a college computer lab.

    While learning basic HTML programming in 1996, Jay Adamcyk was assigned to create a web page. Its focus was Ernie Irvan, his favorite NASCAR driver. In the infancy of Internet, it drew many questions from fans interested in the status of other drivers, or the annual movement between teams that is known colloquially as “Silly Season” in NASCAR.

    Adamcyk made a chart to track drivers in the Cup Series and rechristened the page as “Jayski’s Silly Season” on Aug. 26, 1996.

    The logo that has become synonymous with the Jayski Silly Season site is a caricature of its founder, Jay Adamcyk.
    “That just frickin’ took off,” Adamcyk recalled
