Murrieta, CA Power Automedia is making some changes to the products offered in the upcoming year with the addition of two video podcasts. The two video podcasts, also known as vodcasts, will be hosted on Street Muscle and Dragzine websites as well as most popular video platforms.

Followers of Street Muscle Magazine are already familiar with the recurring podcast, RodCAST Live, which began airing episodes in January 2020. Vinny Costa and Greg Acosta take viewers and listeners on an all-encompassing dive into the deep-end of all things automotive with guests ranging from racers to journalists, manufacturers, car builders, industry personalities, and much more. RodCAST Live airs every Friday at 12pm PST on the Street Muscle Facebook page and the newly created Street Muscle YouTube channel. It will soon launch natively on StreetMusclemag.com as well as other platforms. For those who are just learning of RodCAST Live and are interested in catching up, previous episodes will be uploaded to the Street Muscle YouTube channel every Tuesday at 12pm PST.

The Dragzine Podcast has been airing episodes since 2019 and will be receiving a few updates with the new year. The show is kept light-hearted and fun by host Brian Wagner, Sr. Associate Editor of Dragzine, and takes listeners on a trip beyond what they might normally see, read, or hear when it comes to the biggest names in drag racing. Episodes of The Dragzine Podcast feature guests from every corner of the drag racing world including big-money bracket racers, top tuners, and professional NHRA racers. The Dragzine Podcast had been purely audio for almost two years, however, starting in December it will transition to a video format which will utilize the Power Automedia YouTube channel that had been recently rebranded as Dragzine. Episodes will debut every Thursday at 12pm PST on Dragzine.com, the new YouTube, Facebook, and IGTV.

To accompany the two video podcasts, Street Muscle Magazine and Dragzine will each be creating custom newsletters that provide additional sponsorship opportunities to clients enrolled in Power Automedia’s newly revised “Everywhere +” advertising package. The new designs will offer dedicated space for two pieces of custom-crafted sponsored content in addition to showcasing exclusive content not found on Power Automedia’s various magazine sites. 

“Having one of the largest and most sought after email lists, we have been asked by our partners if we could provide an opportunity for a sponsored newsletter for years,” stated Lloyd Hunt, Power Automedia’s Senior Director of Business Development. “Our readers’ experience is important to us, so not only did we want this updated newsletter to be valuable to them but also not overly promotional. Utilizing our existing vodcasts, it simply made sense to provide this 360 degree marketing approach.”

Murrieta, CA Power Automedia’s Horsepower Wars has announced its official episode release schedule for the third season of the $10K Drag Shootout presented by Lucas Oil as well as an exciting partnership with Lucas Oil’s cable and satellite television channel, MAVTV Motorsports Network.

$10K Drag Shootout consists of four teams competing against each other to see who can build the fastest drag racing car over a period of 10 days, with a budget of only $10,000 — divided into $3,000 cash and a $7,000 Summit Racing Equipment gift card. Once the builds have been completed, the teams head down to the track for heads-up racing where the team who proves they’re the quickest, takes home $10,000 and their finished car. This season the Lucas Oil $10K Drag Shootout will be taking inspiration from No Prep drag racing events that have become increasingly popular over the years, which mimic street racing – using no traction compound to make the track sticky as with a traditional track event. 

For the first time, Horsepower Wars will be partnering with MAVTV to broadcast $10K Drag Shootout 3 on cable television. MAVTV Motorsports Network is owned and operated by Lucas Oil Products and is the only cable television network in the U.S. dedicated solely to motorsports. “We live for custom car builds and drag racing, it’s in our DNA,” said John Duff, Head of Content at MAVTV. “So when we were presented with the opportunity to partner with Horsepower Wars and broadcast Season 3 of their highly popular drag racing show with a no-prep twist, we knew it would be a perfect fit and blend nicely into our already impressive lineup of automotive content.” MAVTV will be airing episodes of $10K Drag Shootout every Sunday with the first episode premiering on November 1, 2020.

Fans of the show who do not have access to MAVTV will be able to watch the upcoming season on the same platforms as years past on Horsepowerwars.com in addition to the Horsepower Wars Facebook and YouTube every Tuesday starting on November 3.

ABOUT HORSEPOWER WARS 

Horsepower Wars is an automotive TV show featuring fierce competition between rivals that takes place in a variety of venues including: engine dyno, chassis dyno, drag strip, road course, and even an off-road short course.

SpeedVideo is Moving to a Subscription Model in 2020 in Partnership with All of Our Event Promoters. Here is Why.

A joint letter written to the drag racing community from SpeedVideo and 14 leading drag racing promoters.

For many years, drag racing has been live streamed on the internet free of charge. The advances of technology and reasonably priced video equipment made this possible. Promoters often paid for the cost of the production, or shared the cost with the live streaming broadcaster. It was a reasonably workable system except for three major flaws:

  1. Live broadcasts were completely reliant on advertisers or the promoter paying for production costs. This limited both the quality of the production as well as how many events could be broadcast. Many broadcasts had huge audiences, but lost money.
  2. Promoters lost potential ticket sales from their events, which often costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to produce. For every person watching at home, a potential ticket sale was lost.
  3. Most new, smaller, or specialty events aren’t broadcast because there was no way to pay for them.

Watching drag racing for free seems like a win-win, but the free model isn’t that good for drag racing. After a great deal of evaluation of how to grow and improve live drag racing broadcasting, the best path forward was to create a subscription model. Event promoters and SpeedVideo who produce the broadcasts will be free to work together to create amazing broadcasts with higher-quality productions, and to expand and cover more events, with a model where each viewer pays a small amount, rather than trying to rely only on the backs of advertisers only.

The world’s biggest and best drag races will continue to be streamed on SpeedVideo – including Lights Out, No Mercy, Sweet 16, World Cup Finals, Outlaw Armageddon, TX2K, NMRA, NMCA, PDRA, Outlaw Street Car Reunion, UCC, Bounty Hunters, WoooStock, F2LK, Snowbirds, US Street Nationals, select Drag Illustrated events, and more to come. SpeedVideo subscriptions will be available for $24.95 per month, or $199 for the entire year ($149 introductory rate), which will get you access to around 40 of the premier live streamed drag racing events. The contribution each viewer makes will help grow drag racing, increase the quality of the broadcasts, and attract new promoters, events, and racers.

Moving SpeedVideo to subscription will benefit:

  • Promotors – a revenue share will allow them to grow their events, pay purses, and cover expenses.
  • Racers – more healthy events and racing series.
  • Viewers – higher-quality broadcasts and a wider variety of events.

We have all come together in agreement – this is the best path forward for the future of drag racing. This will enable each drag racing fan to get a great, high-quality broadcast but also keep the sport viable. We are hopeful that each drag racing fan will look at this like a step forward for drag racing and how this will contribute to the future growth of the sport. We all love drag racing and many of us do this not just for a living, but as a way of life. We appreciate all of your support.

Steph DaviesMURRIETA, CA —  POWER AUTOMEDIA has hired accomplished automotive writer Stephanie Davies as Senior Associate Editor of the Ford Group.

With seven years of published editing and marketing experience, and familiarity with multiple content management systems, Davies has worked hard to pursue her professional career in an industry she is passionate about. She brings with her a wealth of experience and a results-oriented attitude that produces tremendous results.

Throughout her motorsports career, Davies has demonstrated an essential skill set that made her the prime candidate for Power Automedia’s Senior Associate Editor, Ford Group, position including exceptional attention to detail, strong problem-solving ability, and excellent multi-tasking, organizational, and time-management skills. Davies’s ability to communicate clearly and effectively both to her teammates and to her readers has also enabled her to stand out as a top-tier producer.

Working with Power Automedia on a contract basis at first, Davies impressed her group so much that a permanent, full-time position was offered and she quickly accepted. “I’m so excited to be joining the team at Power Automedia full-time,” shared Davies. “Power Automedia has been at the forefront of automotive performance media and news for years, and as an enthusiast and racer myself, I feel beyond fortunate to be working with a team of people who ‘get it.’”

Prior to joining the Power Automedia team, Davies obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree from New Jersey’s Rutgers University in 2013. Not long after, she was hired on at Source Interlink Media as an Associate Web Editor where she generated web and social media content for Super Chevy, Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords, Vette, GM High-Tech Performance, High Performance Pontiac, Mopar Muscle, and Circle Track.

“I had the pleasure of working with Stephanie at Source Interlink years ago, back when her Coyote Fox race car was still a daily driver and she was fresh out of Rutgers. It was clear how passionate she was for cars in general, and blue ovals specifically. Since then, she certainly hasn’t slowed down either. When you combine that sort of passion with storytelling, it generates an authenticity that readers can really connect with. Stephanie is going to do some great things in this industry, and I’m excited to have a first-class ticket on her journey,” added Scott Parker, Vice President, Content at Power Automedia.

Davies also spent four years working as the Communications and PR Manager at ROUSH Performance. She produced written content such as press releases, dealer announcements, catalogs, newsletters, blogs, and more – all of which helped to strengthen her robust journalistic skills.

Additionally, Davies had freelanced at Power Automedia where she was involved in developing content for Ford Muscle and FordNXT Magazine, The Enthusiast Network (TEN), and ProMedia over the years while also being involved with several marketing campaigns for Ford, Infiniti, and Toyota.

Davies’s expertise with the Ford brand and its enthusiasts, combined with her outstanding writing ability and automotive industry experience, made her the perfect choice for the Senior Associate Editor, Ford Group, role at Power Automedia and she will undoubtedly elevate the role to new heights as she puts her unique touch on the content that is created under her watch.

Power Automedia’s highly anticipated “Horsepower Wars: $10K Drag Shootout” storyline is underway – with the fourth of the eleven episodes recently debuting at HorsepowerWars.com, Facebook, YouTube and leading social media platforms.

For the $10K Drag Shootout, four teams, each with five crew members, have been given $3,000 to purchase a car and $7,000 worth of Summit Racing gift cards that allow each crew to pick and choose from the distributor’s extensive selection of go-fast goodies.

The teams had 10 days to build as fast as they can, and then will be given the opportunity to lay down the fastest e.t. possible September 13-16 at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio. In the meantime, trash talking and infighting are sure to ensue. Whichever team handles sleep deprivation best, will be crowned the winner and get to keep their car. One of the other three rides will be given to one lucky viewer – meaning you could actually walk away with a Horsepower Wars drag car of your very own.

“The $10K Shootout debut has been really strong. The teams and drama is off the charts,” said James Lawrence, Power Automedia and Horsepower Wars CEO.

“Racers are going to be racers, looking for every tiny loophole or advantage they can get. At the same time, the clock is ticking. One misstep can set back the whole build,” said Scott Parker, Power Automedia and Horsepower Wars Senior Director of Content & Strategy. “Although you can watch this series on any device, this is the type of show you are going to want to queue up on your smart TV’s YouTube app and watch with your friends. It really does transcend the automotive genre and is just plain entertaining.”

The four teams are:

  • Team Boddie, 1984 Buick Regal: nitrous big-block Chevy – led by Russ Wullenwaber & Jay Boddie.
  • Team Bigun, 1986 Mustang GT: turbo LS – led by Lyle Barnett & Eric Yost.
  • Team Stinky Pinky, third-gen Camaro: blown big-block Chevy, led by Dean Karns & Papa Disco.
  • Comp Cams Dream Team, 1990 Mustang GT: turbo LS – led by Jeff Reed.

Highlights include team-on-team drama, a taco-eating contest (the winner got a complete NOS nitrous kit), a trip to a salvage yard for some parts shopping, and more. Of course there is a lot of hard work going on as the four teams put noses to grindstones in the quest to win $10K Drag Shootout glory. Visit HorsepowerWars.com to see it all!
