Billy Pauch Jr. talks about his rides for 2017, his holiday with family and why he is not a Jr.
Stacy Jackson spoke with Steve Ovens about what he has coming up for the new season.

I don’t know how it happened but that was the quickest cold I ever had. At least I am hoping that is what it was. I felt a little off Tuesday, very off on Wednesday but on Thursday I bounced back. Everyone else in the house has been sick so I don’t know how or if I have dodged this thing yet. We’ll have to see I guess.

I got back in the studio and will be very busy in there today as I hope to get a little ahead now that I am feeling much better. Don’t forget Motorsports 2017 starts today in Oaks, Pennsylvania so I know a lot of you are going down there. Expect to see some news break at this show and we’ll do our best to try to relay some of what comes out next weekend in our conversations next week.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who is going to be very busy this year. Billy Pauch Jr. talks about his rides for 2017 including a new one for the STSS, his holiday with his wife & young son and why he is not really Billy Pauch Jr. What?  

Stacy Jackson spoke with Steve Ovens about what he has coming up for the new season as well as the new set of challenges that await. This is part 1 of 2.    

Stacy Jackson spoke with Steve Ovens about a change for 2017, what he’ll have to change with new rubber on the car and how he hopes things will work out.

Chris Daugherty tells Steve Ovens about his move to the 370 Modified division at Woodhull.
Tony Veneziano reports on Sprint Car racing from Australia and give us some driver news.

It had to happen I guess. When you live in a house where the three other family members have been sick it is inevitable that you’ll get sick too. I started feeling it when I woke up and it is starting to hit me now.

So it was the perfect time for Steve Ovens to send me a few interviews and boy, I could not be more thankful. Hopefully it will be a quick bout, will end soon and not result in a sinus infection like Allie now has. I’ll do what I have to and try my best to keep going. There just maybe a little more coughing in the interviews.

I have a nice article up on Vinnie Vitale’s move to 360 Sprint Cars online at www.syracuse.com/motorsports and in today’s edition of the Syracuse Post Standard. And today I will get back in the studio to make sure you have new stuff for tomorrow.

Now let’s talk more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today starting with one from our good friend at Turn 5 Live which airs every Tuesday night from 7:30-9:30 p.m. on the Performance Motorsports Network. Chris Daugherty tells Steve Ovens about his move to the 370 Modified division at Woodhull, how it came together and how close he is to getting his cars ready for the season.  

Tony Veneziano reports on Sprint Car racing from Australia, tells me about one of the country’s most storied tracks and give us some recent driver news.

I enjoyed a nice day off on Tuesday and will be back at it again today. I have some writing to do and some interviews as well. Plus we’ll revisit Tony Veneziano for an update on last weekend’s racing in Australia. It will be a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy it.

I have been able to (knock on wood) avoid the cold that has been going   through my house and am feeling just fine. I see some of you are sick so we wish you all the best.

Excited that we are just a few weeks away from the Rolex 24 at Daytona as soon we will have a lot of racing to talk about from down south. Plus the DIRTcar Nationals are getting closer every day as well as teams work hard in their shops to get ready for the trip down south. We wish all of you the best as well.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as we start with a young man who is ready for a big change this season. Ryan Jordan talks about getting his big block Modified ready for Saturday nights at Fulton, why he is making the move and why his goals will be much different in 2017.

I had a nice day on Monday as I wrote up a story on the Chili Bowl for the Syracuse Media Group and did some more work in the studio. You can read the story online at www.syracuse.com/motorsports or grab your copy on the Syracuse Post Standard at newsstands today.

I’ve got a nice mix for you today and again tomorrow as we take a break before action gets going in Florida. They are racing indoors next weekend in New Jersey at Boardwalk Hall as the 14th Annual Atlantic City Indoor races run January 29th and 30th.

The PPB Motorsports 2017 show begins this Friday and runs through Sunday in Oaks, Pennsylvania. For more information go to http://aarn.com/category/motorsports/ and make your plans now. Those two events should be just what we need to get through these next few weeks.

And don’t forget that this year’s Rolex 24 at Daytona begins in Saturday, January 28th. That’s less than two weeks people so hang in there just a while longer.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a racer who is very busy helping to get other ready for the 2017 season. Jason Barney tells me about his consistent season, his race business 87 speed.com and describes the three categories he tends to put racetracks into. Check him out at www.87speed.com.

Adam Hilton tells me about his plans to run a Modified at Freedom Motorsports Park.
Tony Veneziano reports on the Chili Bowl and tells me about some of the competitors.

I got a lot done later Sunday afternoon and into Sunday night and as I wrote this up I am just in time to watch the end of the Green Bay/Dallas game. What a game! And of course right after this I’ll switch over to KC/Pitt. Go Chiefs!

Half of my house is sick with a cold and I am hoping I am not next. Ever since I got pneumonia a few years back I am always nervous when people around me start to cough and blow their noses. I’ve been taking Zicam, Vitamin C, drinking every fluid I can get ahold of and washing my hands with hot, soapy water every chance I get. Wish me well.

Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page as we start the work week with a day off for most of us. Adam Hilton tells me about his plans to run a small block Modified at Freedom Motorsports Park on Fridays, how he put the deal together and what he was working on Sunday morning.  

Tony Veneziano reports on all five nights of the Chili Bowl and tells me about some of the competitors while evaluating the significance of this huge event.

Ricky Newton talks about his racing business and running a Modified on Friday nights.
Pat LaPage tells me about the Bicknell Open House and some of what he learned at it.

I had a fun day again on Saturday as I got some work done and watched both football and basketball before switching over to some Chili Bowl later in the night. I wrote this up ahead of time so I can’t talk about that but we’ll have analysis up for you tomorrow as we check in with our open wheel guru Tony Veneziano.

I will be in the studio hard today and need to get a lot done so if you are available let me know and I will work you in. I also wonder about the KC playoff game which was already pushed back to tonight from the original 1 p.m. starting time. I predict that game will have to be played on Monday with the ice storm set to last until Monday morning. We’ll see I guess.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who has branched out to help his fellow racers. Ricky Newton talks about his racing businesses, gives some advice to racers on adjusting from American Racers to Hoosier Tires and his plans to run a Modified on Friday nights at Freedom.

It got cold again on Friday as winter is making a comeback in Central New York. It may be cold here but it will be warm inside the Tulsa Expo Center as the final day of the 31st Annual Chili Bowl is upon us.

It is going to be quite the day and quite the night as some of the best racing talent in the business is busy today trying to make it into the first big race of the season. I know I’m watching later tonight and I hope you are too. It is going to be an amazing evening.

Tomorrow we’ll be back with more of course as we will get into the studio some time later this afternoon to get some more new stuff recorded. I love weekends as I can get a lot done and hopefully get your favorite driver on.
