Website News

December 26th, 2017:
Steve launched the new Wednesday Night Track Workout graphical content section. This feature automatically retreives (behind the scenes) the latest track workouts from the Google Calendar and displays then on one of four sliders that the user can click through to see what the next 4 workouts will be.

September 19, 2016:
Fast Track is back! After a two year hiatus, the Fast Track Racing Team and its domain (www.FastTrackRacingTeam.com) have returned to RoadRacing.Rocks website platform. The Team can once again benefit from the platform's tried-and-true Event Calendar, Race Calendar and Trophy Case features along with several new features, including the Team Store product ordering system, Male/Female Rankings system, and Team Leaders contact page.

July 1, 2016
Steve launched a new Racer Rankings page that includes more information like ranking position movements, profile photos, and an slideshow animation that allows uses to visualize athlete ranking positions over the entire racing season.

June 6, 2016
Steve launched the new "Beta Division" to the Racer Rankings. This allows racers who place 11th-15th in their gender or age-graded categories to also be ranked in a similar manner as the main "Alpha Division". Beta Division racers can advance to the Alpha Division by getting a top-10 finish in a circuit race.

May 20, 2016:
Steve redesigned the website to be mobile friendly and launched it with a cool new domain, www.RunDPFT.com.

February 8, 2016:
Edward Snowden brought to light the fact that, at any given time, the Internet is being monitored, recorded, and mined for information by not only the US government, but also by people with questionable motives. To counter this, Steve Breese has enabled SSL security (aka: HTTPS, aka: "that little green lock in your browser") on all websites on the RoadRacing.Rocks platorm, including www.ArlingtonTrotters.com, www.RoadRacing.Rocks, www.RunDPFT.com, and www.FastTrackRacingTeam.com. This means that website users can be confident that any and all data they send and receive through the site will be automatically encrypted and thus not visible by snoopers on the interwebs.

November 6, 2015:
Steve launched the new Most Improved Racer page which list athletes who have shown the biggest improvement in their age-graded scores throughout the CARA Race Circuit. Graphs of each athlete's age-grade scores and a description of the scoring methodology are included on the page.

September 24, 2015:
Steve enhanced the Personal Race Calendar feature by retiring the Archived Races feature in favor of organizing all race on new tabs. The tabs are labeled by year which makes it much easier to find your results for past races. This improvement also reduces the amount of scrolling while using the RoadRacing.Rocks! Race Calendar.

September 23, 2015:
Steve developed lists of Past and Future CARA Circuit Races along with each race's participant count shown on a graphical bar. Hyperlinks on the bars target the race's participant list on the Trophy Case (for past races) and the Race Calendar (for future races).

September 17, 2015:
Steve migrated the RoadRacing.Rocks! website to a more dependable web host. The previous web host, Arvixe.com had been experiencing frequent and numerous outages & slow periods this past summer and could no longer be trusted to host the site. The performance with the new web host, DreamHost.com, has proven to be a huge improvement. No more waiting for pages to load!

April 21st, 2015:
Introducing the new Rankings feature! This feature automatically calculates performance rankings of RoadRacing.Rocks! members who have competed in any of the 2015 CARA Runners Choice Race Circuit and have finished in the top 10 (within our members) for either their gender or age-graded categories. This feature will add a whole new level of excitement and camaraderie while cheering on our fellow teammates as they achieve greatness in the CARA Race Circuit. The Rankings tables appear on the Top-Finishers & Rankings page while the rankings graphs appear on the Ranking Progression Charts page.

March 22nd, 2015:
The RoadRacing.Rocks! website now remembers user's last submitted pace (i.e. 7:30 min/mi) and will automatically select that pace for all group run events the next time the user returns to an Events page. This will make it easier and quicker for users to RSVP for group runs.

March 3rd, 2015:
Information about RoadRacing.Rocks! website and its benefits was posted on the Fast Track Racing Team member-only Facebook page.

Steve encourages all runners to use the RoadRacing.Rocks! site to manage their planned races and their past results. He is continuing to develop the site and plan to launch an automatic rankings feature soon. Member's login account that they used last year should still work as he did not wipe out the accounts this New Years Day like in previous years. If you don't have an account, he encourage you to create one.

February 25th, 2015:
Users can now filter race results by Distance and Finish Time. Check it out for yourself on the the Trophy Case page.

February 10th, 2015:
RoadRacing.Rocks! is now the host of District 211 Fund(d) 5K Run's website. The event's previous host domain (nwsuburbs.us) expired and was not renewed.

January 28th, 2015:
iframes containing RoadRacing.Rocks!'s RSVP functionality have been embedded into the Dick Pond Fast Track Racing Team website. They are currently in place for the Monday Night Fun Run, the Wednesday Night Speedwork, Barrington Saturday Run, and Streets of Woodfield/Busse Woods Sunday Run. This allows Fast Trackers to know who will be attending these events. While on the Fast Track website, users do not need to be logged into the RoadRacing.Rocks! website in order to RSVP to an event. However, if they are logged in, they will obtain the additional benefit of RSVP removal protection.

January 2nd, 2015:
The FastTrackRacingTeam.com web domain was re-pointed to a new site designed by John Brazda and Richie Siok using the Weebly.com website builder. At the same time, Steve Breese re-launched the previous team site with a new name and domain... RoadRacing.Rocks! Fast Track members are still able to access their profile and race results using their 2014 login credentials. All the popular features from the previous site (i.e., Race Calendar, Trophy Case, etc.) are still available and will continue to be maintained and improved.
