Jayski's Silly Season Site is a web site focusing primarily on NASCAR news and rumors, created and run by Jay Adamczyk (Jayski), a former United States Air Force mechanic, on August 25, 1996. Adamczyk started the site after having difficulty finding news regarding the Melling Racing team and has since worked to get all the NASCAR news grouped together on his siteFact|date=August 2007. The term "Silly Season" refers to the second half of the racing season, when many teams seek to make changes to prepare for next year.

Jayski's is well-known by NASCAR drivers and fans alikeFact|date=August 2007, and it often is mentioned on NASCAR-related television shows. It also is home to pictures of the many paint schemes that teams use throughout the year, as well as television schedules, and tributes to deceased drivers. From 2002 until 2004 the site was hosted by Knight Ridder's ThatsRacin.com. Since 2005, the site has been hosted by, and affiliated with, ESPN.com, but ownership was retained by Adamczyk. On April 2, 2007, as part of its renewed interest in NASCAR following reacquisition of broadcasting rights, ESPN purchased Jayski.com, though Adamczyk continues to be the operator.
