Steve Paine talks about the work he is doing in his shop and how Microd racing helped his son.
Tony Veneziano reports on the World of Outlaw Sprint Car Series as rain won again last weekend.

It was another nice day on Monday as all the snow that fell is now gone and melted away into the storm sewers. Good riddance snow and we hope we don’t see you again till next November at the earliest.
 
We’re back starting out today with a really good one from a perspective that only a racing dad would know. Steve Paine and I got to know each other better in 2017 when his oldest son Billy ran for a brief time with the Syracuse Microd Club. And after you listen to this one I encourage you to look into doing something like this with your kids as it is a great situation.
 
So, let’s get right to it then and talk more about that interview which is first up on the Audio Page for today. Steve Paine talks about the work he was doing in his shop this past weekend, runs down the family’s race plans for 2019 and explained how a short time in Microd racing really helped his son. Really good one here! 
 
Tony Veneziano reports on the World of Outlaw Sprint Car Series as rain won again last weekend in California, talks about the USCS race in Alabama as well as the first weekend in Pennsylvania.

Kenny Hunt talks about getting back behind the wheel this year after fifteen years off from driving.

We have a nice mix of drivers on the site for you today as we got very busy over the weekend. And we’ll be back tomorrow with a future Hall of Famer and a veteran who will be racing less this season to help concentrate more on his son’s racing efforts so do not miss a day!
 
It was a super nice day on Sunday and I got to get out and shoot some hoops will Allie and watch lots of hoops as well although the second round games were not nearly as exciting as the first round was. Still the tourney is maybe the greatest event in sports today.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page beginning with a racer who already has a trip to victory lane on huis resume for 2019. Bobby Hackel spoke about winning in his first race this season down in North Florida, the work he does for PMC and thinks back on his start in racing at age five.

Demetrios Drellos remembered his races last weekend at Georgetown and at Volusia in February.
Butch Hazzard talks about his new job as co-promoter at Glen Ridge and his own racing background.
 
The big storm that was supposed to the next bomb cyclone ended up dropping about three inches of snow here in Central New York. The snowblower was not needed as almost all of it melted under the sun on Saturday. Let’s hope this is the last time I use that word till sometime in November. Keep your fingers crossed.
 
I got a lot done on Saturday as I got very busy in the studio and I hope to be very busy again today. As I wrote this up I am getting ready for some friends to stop over to watch some games tonight. Let’s hope they are competitive and fun to watch. And we’ll be doing more of that today as well.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a man who already has six races in so far this year. Demetrios Drellos remembered his races last weekend at Georgetown that included a top ten on Sunday, his four races earlier in the year at Volusia in February and looks ahead to Can Am in three weeks.

Cody Jackson talks about his rookie season in a Sportsman after moving from an Asphalt Modified.
Nick Stone gets teased by Luke Horning before the two talk seriously about coils versus leaf springs.

We had another fun day on Friday as basketball was the center of our activities. There were some big upsets and some great games. And with the weather like it is with nothing happening on the local dirt tracks this weekend at least I have something to do. Melt quickly snow. We need you gone in a few weeks please.
 
I have a pair of really nice interviews up for you today and will have more tomorrow including a chat with the new co-promoter at The Ridge. And I’ll be in studio this afternoon in between games getting ore for you for tomorrow.
 
And don’t forget that there are a bunch of fund raisers this weekend for racers we know well. Please do your best to support them as they get everything in order for the coming season. Hope you all have a great day and don’t have too much snow to move.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a man who is coming off a pretty good season.

Matt Rich had his Sportsman in display last weekend and talked about racing and working in racing.
Devon Camenga talked about his Pro Stock travels last year and ran down his plans for this season.

What a fun day it was for me on Thursday as I got to visit with an old friend for a while and see some great college basketball games. It was fun from top to bottom and I can’t wait to do it all over again today.
 
Speaking of today that little storm they’ve been talking about now sounds like it could be a little more of a bother. They are predicting 6-10 inches of snow for us here and I am ready for what I hope will be the last time the snow blower will be needed this month. I know a lot of you are too! Darn…
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page for you today as we get ready for a cold, snowy weekend. Matt Rich had his Sportsman in display last weekend in Rottterdam and talked about racing from the driver’s seat and remembers starting his career in a 1971 Charger back in 1986.

Ron Proctor talked about racing Sportsman at Devil’s Bowl and when he started racing at age 20.
Mike Jackson showed me his Sportsman in Rotterdam and talked about his racing apparel business.

It was such a nice day on Wednesday and it’s sad that the nice weather will be leaving us with snow in its place for Friday. Depending on where you live you may get a little, you may get more than a little so we’ll just have to wait and see. March never lets us off easy all month so I guess we should have expected it.

We’ll be in serious basketball mode for the next few days with the NCAA tournament kicking into high gear today. Allie and I will be watching hoops and we even had a chance to get in the driveway and shoot a little bit yesterday. It was fun and her jump shot has come a long way.

Now let’s talk more about racing and what we have for you on the Audio Page from this past weekend’s car show in Rotterdam. Ron Proctor talked about racing Sportsman at Devil’s Bowl, when he started racing a big car at age 20 and what it was like racing motorcycles as a younger man. 
 
Mike Jackson showed me his Sportsman in Rotterdam this past weekend at the mall show and talked about his racing apparel business as well as what they are doing for the Dirt Modified Nostalgia Tour.

Kenny Gates talked about his season in a Pro Stock at Fonda and his new plastic quarter panels.
Craig Pritchard explains why he is returning to Utica Rome to race his Sportsman on Sunday nights.
Mimi Lazzaro spoke about singing at the new Expo Center and remembers going to races with dad.

Wednesday is here and so is the warmer weather. The next few days sound nice and some are wondering if that four letter word we hate so much at this time of the year may be gone. I don’t know about that but I would not mind keeping that old Airens snowblower in the garage for a long time.
 
I’m going to be back at it again today as we are getting a little low in the can. As always suggestions are appreciated and after talking to a pair of drivers this past weekend who were both listeners and never reached out to me I need to encourage all of you racers out there to please do so.
 
I feel badly that I don’t get to talk to more of you but I don’t know you. Just send me an email at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com or message me on Facebook. I’d love to hear how you got started, how you are coming along as you learn and what you hope happens this year. Really, I wanna chat. So reach out please and let’s talk today so you can link it and let people know what you’re all about!
 
Now let’s talk more about what we have to listen to on the Audio Page today starting with a guy who is looking ahead to another fun season.

Craig Pritchard explains why he is returning to Utica Rome to race his Sportsman on Sunday nights, remembers how much fun he had in a couple of late season races there and thinks back to the early 90’s.
