New on the Audio Page for today:

Matt Sheppard talks about his hopes for Fonda, Oswego and how 26 wins ranks for him.
Brett Hearn spoke about his past at Fonda, how much he likes the Outlaw 200 and Oswego.
Jeff Rockefeller explained why he was going to shut down his season after this weekend.

We are back on a Monday and we are in the middle of making some changes that we hope you’ll like. Webmaster Andy now has the audio working on other devices so you won’t need flash player any more. Rather than work on the photos (Which we hope to get to next) we figured we would work on getting the clips to play on all devices including tablets, I-Pads, I-Phones and I-pods.

Please let us know at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com if you are having any issues. The auto-play button is not working but we hope to have that fixed any time now. Of course on any website when you make one change it often affects other things, sometime things that you don’t even think are related so please let us know if you see anything out of the ordinary.

Now let’s chat more about what we have to listen to on the Audio Page starting out with the Modified world’s hottest driver on the track right now. Matt Sheppard talks about his hopes for Fonda, looks ahead to Fulton & Oswego and how his 26 win season ranks for him compared to recent years.  

Brett Hearn spoke about his past at Fonda, how much he likes the Outlaw 200 and the need to hit on something a little better for his set ups.

Jeff Rockefeller explained how he spun his car in hot laps, why he was going to shut down his season after Sunday at Rolling Wheels and what he is thinking about for 2017.  

Felecia Williamson shared some stories about her dad Kramer Williamson at his memorial race, explained how nervous she is as she paces the field in his last Sprint Car and how her family is doing now. Good one here guys. We miss you Kramer!

New on the Audio Page from Fonda Speedway:

Stewart Friesen tells me about his 13th place finish in the Camping World Truck Series race.
Darwin Greene remembered his Fonda win last weekend and talks about his late season plans.
Jeff Cook told me about a problem he had on the parade lap on Friday and recent motor woes.
Joe Trenca spoke about Fonda and looked ahead to Sunday night at Rolling Wheels Raceway.
Paulie Colagiovanni described some tough luck he had Friday night while running in third place.

We were feeling a little better on Saturday but obviously not well enough to make it through a whole show. I was optimistic but was still unable to keep food down so I ran out of gas very quickly at Fonda. It’s too bad too because after the rainout they had on Friday it was a packed house in the pit area with lots of divisions and lots of great racing on tap.

I did a bunch before I started to fade and will have a lot of those up this week along with some studio chats that I will get done this week. But yes, we are doing better and I am sure within the next 24-36 hours I will be back at full song.

And how about our own Stewart Friesen finishing thirteenth at Loudon? Wow! Not bad for just his third Truck series race.

As a matter of fact, let’s talk more about that and all the other stuff you can listen to on the Audio Page for today. Stewart Friesen tells me about his 13th place finish in the Camping World Truck Series race at New Hampshire, how happy he was with the result and looks ahead to next weekend in Las Vegas.  

Darwin Greene remembered his Fonda win last weekend, where the roof from that winning car will end up and talks about his late season plans. Great news for one of the good guys in racing!

Jeff Cook told me about a problem he had on the parade lap on Friday, why he pulled in when the leader got behind him and some recent motor woes he has had.  

Joe Trenca spoke about Fonda and looked ahead to long weekend as well as Sunday night at Rolling Wheels Raceway for a PST/URC/ESS combo show.  

Paulie Colagiovanni described some tough luck he had Friday night at Outlaw Speedway while running in third place and wonders if today at Rolling Wheels might be his last race of the season.

I got the stomach bug that has been going around and it got worse as the day wore on. I am so sorry guys but I had to bag the race last night and for most of the night I was in bed. I am doing what I am supposed to do and am hoping to make Fonda today. Don’t forget both Fonda and Outlaw Speedways are running today and Rolling Wheels has one tomorrow. Sorry guys.
