Timmy Buckwalter reviews his 2014 season that saw him win in four types of different racecars.
Kenny Gates tells me about his season at Fonda in a Pro Stock and what he learned on Sundays.
 
We’re back with our final interviews of 2014 and actually since we got a few extra ones done on Sunday I am going to extend the new stuff through tomorrow. So that means we’ll start out best of the month interviews on Wednesday. We’ll give you the top five downloads for each month of 2014 and do so right through the new year.
 
On today we have a pair of Season in Review chats that are both very good. One driver won in a class he  had never won in before and the other learned some stuff driving someone else’s car and then applied that to his own.
 
So let’s check out these new interviews on the Audio Page starting with a very versatile driver who can drive just about anything on dirt. Timmy Buckwalter reviews his 2014 season that saw him win in four types of different racecars including his first ever victory in a Modified.  
 
Kenny Gates tells me about his season at Fonda in a Pro Stock, what he learned on Sundays driving a friend’s car and the new car he has on order for 2015.

We’ve got some good stuff up for you today with a pair of people who are not bashful in the slightest. So sit back and enjoy as we do a Season in Review and talk racing with a man who covers it for a living.
 
I hope you all have a great day today and remember what is most important at the holiday time, friends and family. So don’t get stressed out and enjoy this time of the year.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page. I start with one your favorites! Alan Rudalavage reviews his two win season, tells me how good Penn Can was in 2014 and what job he thinks he could do at the racetrack if he had to. Yeah, he’d be fine!

We have a pair of Season in Review interviews for you today as we finish out 2014 here. We’ll be doing our top downloads of the year beginning on Tuesday so we have two more studio days left.
 
Both of these today are really good so I hope you enjoy them. I’ve started going through what we’ll be doing next week and you guys picked some real good ones in your top five. I can’t wait to get going on those but will do two more days before that.
 
Hope all of you are doing well and getting your shopping done. We’re probably about 75% done and hope to wrap up the rest this weekend.

Rob Keller talked about retiring from racing 2015 and wonders if he may come back in 2016.
Corey Barker reviewed his season in a Crate Sportsman and told me where he felt he improved.
 
Back today with more new stuff and we’ll be doing new stuff in the studio through Sunday so if you want to jump on board get ahold me of and we’ll work you in.
 
We have a couple of good ones on the site today as we find out why a veteran driver is retiring and what a young racer has been learning about as he continues to improve. I know you’ll like both of these so be sure to check them out.
 
I’ll be in the studio again today and for the next three days so look for more good stuff from the world of racing. And don’t forget that they’re racing indoors this weekend in Trenton, New Jersey.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page. I start with a man who had tough decision to make. Rob Keller talked about retiring from racing 2015 after 20 years in IMCA Modified competition and tells me what he will miss most and not so much. 2016? We’ll see about that! 
 
Corey Barker reviewed his winning season in a Crate Sportsman and told me where he felt he improved as well as when his helmet got a little too tight for a few days. I’m sure you can guess what happened next to some degree.

Pete Stefanski ran down his schedule for 2015 and talked about a rule change effects his Sundays.
Joey Payne gets ready for this weekend’s race in Trenton and talks about his new Supermodified.
 
We had a fun day on Wednesday as my oldest daughter Allie celebrated her birthday. We went to dinner with my dad, had cupcakes with a NASCAR theme to them and watched her open gifts. It was a lot of fun but boy she is not my little girl anymore, she’s my young lady and I could not be more proud.
 
Before we left and again after the festivities, I was able to get in the studio and pen a new column for the Syracuse Post Standard. I had to adapt as the interviews I had set up did not pan out so I had to think fast. But thanks to my experiences working a live daily show in TV came in handy and everything worked out fine.
 
Today I’ll be back in the studio again and have decided that Sunday will be my last day doing interviews before we switch over to our top five downloads as we always do at this time of the year. I hate to bug all these racers over the holidays so this always works out well and I know a lot of you enjoy reliving the season that was and seeing who makes the top five for each month.
 
So if you have requests, send them to me now and I’ll get going on them when I can. Racers, if you want to schedule a chat, call me or send me a message either by email or facebook.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page today. It starts with one for all you stock car guys out there. Pete Stefanski ran down his aggressive schedule for 2015 and talked about a rule change for Sundays as well as what makes stock cars different from each other. Comments guys?
 
Joey Payne gets ready for this weekend’s indoor race in Trenton and talks about how rough racing on a tight track can be as well as his new Supermodified.

Taylor Caprara talked about his races in 2014 as well as a schedule change for next season.
Leon Andrus chatted about I-88 and Thunder Mountain as well as how he got his start in racing.
 
We’re back today with more stories from the world of dirt track racing. We’ve got a young driver who will tell us about a possible change for 2015 and a veteran announcer who will tell us about his weekly homes as well as how he started in the sport.
 
I’ll be back in the studio today and will need to get a few interviews done during the day as it is my oldest daughter’s birthday. She wants cupcakes instead of a pie and wants to put her favorite NASCAR driver’s numbers on them. Yes, she wants the one with the 22 on it for sure.
 
Feeling good myself as my back has been real good since my last issue. I followed the advice I got from a good friend and had my second highest series of the year in our final night of the year on Monday. I’m averaging just under 200 for the first time in I don’t know how long so yes, I am feeling good.
 
I hope you are feeling good too as you listen to the new stuff we have on the Audio Page for today. We start with a hard working young man from the North Country. Taylor Caprara talked about his races in 2014 as well as a schedule change for next season and wondered if a Modified might be in his future. 
 
Leon Andrus chatted about I-88 and Thunder Mountain as well as how he got his start in racing as a flagger and when he first moved to the announcer’s booth.

Dillon Sallows got back behind the wheel after a year off and told me how his season went.
Geoffrey VanRiper recaps his season in a Sportsman and tells me about a change for 2015.
 
We have a pair of Sportsman drivers for you today as we continue to finish out the 2014 season here on Doug’s Dirt Diary. We’ll be back in the studio today and hope to get your favorite driver on soon. We only have a few days left of new content so get your requests in now.
 
Both of these drivers today had to take breaks from the sport they love so be sure to give them a listen to understand what really goes on with racers. Life does get in the way of racing at times so I give each of them a lot of credit to know when to race and when put it on the back burner.
 
But don’t hear it from me, go to the Audio Page and hear it from them. Dillon Sallows got back behind the wheel after a year off and told me how his season went as well as why they decided to get out & then get back in again. 
 
Geoffrey VanRiper recaps his season in a Sportsman and tells me about a change for 2015 as well as an upgrade he is doing back at his race shop.
