Power Automedia recently launched two new magazines, making a huge debut in the online Ford community. Fresh, new content will now be brought to readers in the form of tech articles, car features, event coverage, the latest industry news, and the scoop on the newest and hottest products.

Power Automedia’s existing magazine, StangTV, has transformed into both the brand new FordNXT.com as well as the relaunched FordMuscle.com. FordNXT has a specific focus on the next generation of Ford performance, including Coyote 2011+ Mustangs, EcoBoost, Raptors and more. FordMuscle.com caters to fans of more traditional Ford performance such as Fox Mustangs and earlier Ford hot rods. It will feature tech articles showcasing everything from pushrod 5.0-liters to Three-Valve and earlier Modulars. Both magazines’ content will be overseen by the Power Automedia Ford Group’s Executive Editor and Blue Oval guru, Steve Turner.

“It’s an exciting time for Ford enthusiasts. Since the introduction of the Coyote 5.0-liter engine and the rise of EcoBoost, the Ford performance options have multiplied. In order to properly address these next-gen Ford vehicles, we are launching FordNXT.com, which will cover everything from the Ford GT to the Fiesta ST and all the Mustangs and Raptors in between,” Steve explained. “Of course, we realize there are plenty of amazing Blue Oval vehicles born before 2011. That’s why we added FordMuscle.com to the Power Automedia family of sites. There we’ll cover everything from classic musclecars and fast Fox Mustangs to modern modulars and earlier Fords fitted with modern engines.”

“Perhaps what I love most about the launch of our two new magazines is that it communicates to the readers that we are more than just Mustangs,” proclaimed Scott Parker, Power Automedia’s Director of Content and Strategy. “We have two performance-focused websites that comfortably house content on literally every Ford platform. And now that we’ve drawn the proverbial line in the sand, it is even easier to go straight to the content that you want. It’s a best-of-both-worlds scenario, where we can offer greater breadth to the scope of content yet greater specialization at the same time.”

These two new magazines provide every single Ford enthusiast a go-to source for entertainment and education directly related to their vehicle of choice. They can be visited at www.FordNXT.com and www.FordMuscle.com.

Power Automedia has announced plans to expand its popular all-Ford magazine StangTV into two new magazines: FordMuscle and FordNXT. To lead the new titles, Power Automedia has also hired magazine industry veteran Steve Turner as Executive Editor.

“I’ve known Steve Turner for more than 15 years, and you’re not going to find a more experienced, dedicated editor,” said James Lawrence, Power Automedia CEO. “He has invested a good portion of his working life in knowing the Ford and Mustang market inside and out, and we couldn’t be more proud than to have him on the team.”

“Power Automedia is expanding our modern Ford and Ford musclecar performance offerings so readers can see more of what they want, and less of what they don’t,” explained Scott Parker, Power Automedia’s Director of Content & Strategy. “Power Automedia’s existing magazine, StangTV.com, will expand into FordNXT.com—a magazine targeted to the next generation of Ford Performance, including Coyote, 2011-up Mustangs, Ecoboost, Raptors, and more. It’s for today’s Ford technology.”PAM-News-Thumbnail-2

FordMuscle.com, on the other hand, will cater to traditional Ford performance—Fox Mustangs and earlier, more traditional Ford hot rods. It will feature engine tech ranging from pushrod 5.0-liters to Three-Valve and earlier Modulars. Both magazines will be go-to sources for all things Ford; tech articles, car features, event coverage, the latest industry news, and the scoop on the newest and hottest products.

Turner is a graduate of the University of Central Florida and has over 20 years of experience in the industry, most notably working for Super Ford, Focus Fanatic, and as the editor of 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords. Most recently, he helped create and launch a digital content platform for SVTPerformance.com, where he served as Editor-in-Chief for the last two and a half years.

“I am looking forward to working with the dynamic and innovative team at Power Automedia,” Turner said. “The team is driven by a passion for cars and they are always looking for a better way to spread that enthusiasm via online magazines, social media, and video. We will develop FordNXT and FordMuscle into the number-one sources for Ford performance enthusiasts to get their fix.”

NMRA

With over a quarter million views to date, SpeedVideo’s live broadcast of the NMRA Drag Racing World Finals delivered on its promise as the largest live stream video in NMRA history.

This event took place at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and is the most popular all-Ford drag race and car show of the year, where you can spot everything from 3,000+ horsepower turbocharged beasts to street legal racecars. Spectators enjoyed all-day entertainment thanks to the races, burnout contest, car show, swap meet, vendor booths, and even special appearances from TV star BoostedGT and 14-time drag racing champion Mike Murillo.

This year, four records were broken at the World Finals and it drew over 450 racecars and 490 show cars, resulting in the largest NMRA event in over 18 years- and it needed a video crew of equal capabilities to stream it to multiple media outlets.screen_shot_2016-10-13_at_2.09.56_pm_720 copy

“We were delighted to get the opportunity to work with the NMRA…it’s a first-class organization,” said Steve Grein, General Manager, SpeedVideo. “With the support of ProCharger, we did the live broadcast with a five-camera shoot, including dual wireless starting line cameras, and the broadcast went off without a hitch. Not only did we broadcast it live to SpeedVideo.com and StangTV.com, but also simultaneously on Facebook. It’s great to see hundreds of thousands of Ford fans all over the world that enjoyed watching the event.”

“SpeedVideo’s live broadcast was a huge promotional tool for the event. They provided great coverage of the event the entire time, and great follow up videos afterward,” said Rollie Miller, NMRA General Manager. “It really helped build the NMRA brand and spread awareness to the public of the NMRA.”

Up next for SpeedVideo is the of the 21st Annual World Cup Finals: Import vs. Domestic which will be streaming live November 4th through the 6th on speedvideo.com.
