Luke Bogacki introduces

Woodville, AL:, an online bracket racing driving school, has launched on the world wide web as of February 3, 2009., the first site of it's kind, has been developed and presented by sportsman racing standout Luke Bogacki.

While various features of the website are available to visitors and guests, the main attraction of is a subscription-only online driving school. In addition to a monthly tutorial column penned by Bogacki, the site will also feature guest editorial columns from some of the most successful competitors in sportsman racing (early guest editorials will come from Jared Pennington, Troy Williams, Jr., and Brian Folk), a weekly Question & Answer session between instructors and subscribers, a comprehensive schedule of sportsman racing events (NHRA, IHRA, and big bracket events), and's unique sportsman "Power Rankings" which rank sportsman competitors regardless of sanction, class, and event type.

"I'm really excited about," explained Bogacki. "We've been working on this idea for over a year, so it's very exciting to see it come to fruition. The main site is available for everyone--just go to the homepage to get an idea of what the site has to offer. We've got some neat stuff online there, but the real features of the site are for the subscribers. The racing tutorials, from myself and our guest instructors are aimed at helping racers develop a sound cerebral approach to the sport--more game theory than anything. I won't claim that it's a "cure-all" that will make everyone the next Peter Biondo, but if a subscriber can take one thing from the website and apply it on the race track to win one round throughout the 2009 season, then their subscription has paid for itself. And I absolutely believe that we can help racers across the country to do just that. Plus, beyond the instructional pages--our schedule is the most comprehensive schedule I've ever seen assembled in one place. We'll literally give serious sportsman racers a listing of every major event on the continent on any given weekend. And, the "Power Rankings" program is going to be fun to watch and keep up with throughout the season."

Subscriptions to are available via credit card on the website. For those subscribers who are not comfortable with e-commerce, there is also a mail-in subscription form available. Annual subscriptions are $119, or is offering a limited-time 3-month trial subscription for $45. For more information, visi t
