Vermont Motorsports Magazine Launches All-New Website

VMM releases new website, announces alliance with Times Argus

BURLINGTON, VT -- Vermont Motorsports Magazine has launched an all-new website for stock car racing coverage at The new VMM website is an easy-to-use, all-inclusive place for feature stories, on-site reporting, weekly columns, photography, video, and more.

Originally launched as a blog in February 2009, Vermont Motorsports Magazine has become a leading source for grassroots auto racing news, focusing on Vermont's weekly tracks and regional touring series. The new, built by Anthony Sweet Designs, has organized and streamlined VMM's coverage. Race fans will find the new website much more attractive and easier to navigate.

"I have been overwhelmed with the recognition Vermont Motorsports Magazine has achieved in such a short amount of time," said Editor Justin St. Louis. "The blog quickly outgrew itself and we found that functionality was decreasing radiply, so it was time to make a change for our dedicated readers. Anthony Sweet comes from a racing family, and he understood what VMM needed. I feel that the new website he designed will bring VMM to the next level."

Vermont Motorsports Magazine has also formed a partnership with The Barre-Montpelier (VT) Times Argus; St. Louis' popular weekly column will appear each Wednesday in the Central Vermont newspaper.

"It is such an honor to write for The Times Argus," St. Louis said. "To follow in the footsteps of writers like Dave Moody, Tom Herzig, and especially the late Pete Hartt really is a childhood dream come true."

Vermont Motorsports Magazine will offer on-site coverage of more than 50 short track events in 2010, providing in-depth coverage of events at Thunder Road Int'l Speedbowl in Barre, Bear Ridge Speedway in Bradford, and Devil's Bowl Speedway in West Haven, events for the American-Canadian Tour and Modified Racing Series, and regional and national racing stories with Vermont interest. VMM also extends its coverage to social media including Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.

The new will debut Friday, April 30, as racing seasons open at Thunder Road and Plattsburgh, NY's Airborne Speedway on Saturday, May 1, and Sunday, May 2. VMM is online now at with links to the VMM blog, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube pages.
