FORT WORTH, Texas —, one of the fastest growing and most popular NASCAR news websites on the internet proudly announces the addition of Judson O’Neil to the team, through a partnership with Mamba Media, as a correspondent for the site.

The 13-year old will bring readers of a behind the scenes look at local short tracks and even NASCAR races that O’Neil attends. For O’Neil, it’s an opportunity to become more established in the motorsports journalism world.

“I think this is a great opportunity to me,” O’Neil said. “The guys at do a great job on their articles, I read a lot of them. These guys really get a bunch of information out there for everyone to see. I’ve done side work for companies like Dirty Mo Media and people before, but I’ve never had an opportunity to stay with something or be a correspondent for someone. I’m really excited because I read articles from all the time and now to be able to work with these guys is really cool for me.”

O’Neil’s talents landed him a role at Mamba Media, which is where the opportunity to contribute to came from. According to Mamba Smith, Founder of Mamba Media, it’s all about giving those who care about racing a platform to showcase their abilities.

“A major objective of Mamba Media is to elevate those who have a passion for motorsports and help them find the resources to expand that passion,” Smith said. “I am very proud to bring Judson into the family. Kids like him are the future and we need to help guide them so they can get us to new heights. Ever since I met him and his family at the Snowball Derby, I knew he had something that people can really relate to — a pure love of the sport, I admire and look up to him for that.” Founder, Toby Christie is excited to work more with O’Neil.

“We worked with Judson during a SRX Racing event earlier this year, and I was blown away at the level of professionalism that the teenager had,” Christie explained. “Absolutely blown away. He loves the sport, and he tries his best to bring that love to his audience through his work. I am very excited to see what the future holds for Judson, but I’m even more excited to bring him into the fold at”

O’Neil, who hails from Florida became addicted to racing around the age of nine, when his father took him and his brother Keelan to Talladega Superspeedway.

“My dad was always a big NASCAR fan since the 1990s. He always had the house all decorated and stuff. I was kind of younger and didn’t really pay attention that much. He used to go to Talladega every year, and he finally took us — I was nine at the time — my brother Keelan and I. And I immediately got hooked on racing. And I just started studying up on racing and then eventually, I started doing my YouTube channel,” O’Neil said.

Joining O’Neil at the hip in this venture will be his right-hand man, his 12-year old brother Keelan.

“My brother Keelan is my cameraman and sidekick. He goes everywhere with me. He has played a big role in JRN. Without him it probably wouldn’t be able to happen.”
