First and Foremost, the Reader

Multimedia is implemented into every area of the new site, leveraging the HOT ROD Network’s group of creative writers, videographers, and technical experts to give the reader a more-immersive and comprehensive experience.
Categories have been reorganized to deliver a cleaner, faster user experience, with breaking news and event coverage brought to the forefront.
Lastly, major back-end improvements have reduced load times, improved ad-space integration, and completely “hot rodded” the search function, which can now pull related content regardless if it’s a separate story, photo, or video.
