NASCAR Scene Stops Publishing

->> NASCAR Scene has stopped publishing as of today after over 30 years. The weekly magazine had been the premier magazine for NASCAR news. Approximately 20 staffers were let go (writers, web people, photographers, editors, ad reps, production people). The 7 or so left were moved to NASCAR Illustrated which will morph into something new. Rumor has it that the publication had been on life support for sometime. NASCAR Scene was a part of the Sporting News.
Hoping photographer David Griffin and writer Jeff Gluck land on their feet running.

Best of luck to all the staffers let go.
