Billy Whittaker recaps his 2017 season that included a win at Fulton and a big one at Eldora.
Dylan Cecce reviews his 15 win season in a Street Stock as well as his big late season victories.

It was another busy day on Sunday as I got a lot done in the studio, watched some football and did some online racing to finish out the day. The game I play online has some of my favorite racetracks on this week so I wanted to get in some extra time on them before they time out Tuesday.
 
I hope you are all doing well with your holiday pre-planning and shopping. We’re doing okay here but know we have good things coming down the road. I’m busy getting a new skill set this year and next school year my wife will be doing the same as we look down the road hoping to move back up to middle class. Gotta have goals right? Thank god we worked hard all those years or we’d be in a tough place right now.
 
We’ll be back in the studio today as I need to get a few interviews done so I can take Tuesday off for bowling and on-line racing. I’ll be putting together my list of top five interviews monthly soon and I know a lot of you really look forward to that in the week between Christmas and New Years. And even tough it is a lot of to compile I enjoy it too.

Now let’s chat about what we have on the Audio Page today starting with a driver who likes to joke about his part-time racer status. Billy Whittaker recaps his 2017 season that included a win at Fulton and a big one at Eldora, how he kept his cool at Oswego Speedway and reflects on his racing past. Good one here!     
 
Dylan Cecce reviews his 15 win season in a Street Stock as well as his big late season victories and tells me about his bad luck early in the season and his championship at Woodhull.

I had a really nice day on Saturday as I got a lot done in the studio doing interviews and was able to set up a bunch for today. I have a pair of Season in Review interviews and will be doing more today.
 
It was a fun day for us Syracuse fans as we beat Georgetown with a comeback that will be remembered for a while. I had a friend stop by after I got my work done and we took Allie to dinner for her birthday. Today we will go see her grandmother as her birthday weekend winds down.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we look back at the 2017 season. Gil Tegg Jr. recaps his season at Canandaigua Motorsports Park and talks about how excited he is for 2018 as well as how what he learns in racing helps everyday.

Jimmy Phelps runs down the schedule at Weedsport Speedway and talks about the new clay.
Alan Rudalavage talks a little about his season, Super DIRT Week and where his Modified is now.

The big snow they predicted overnight did not happen but it sounds like today could be a little different. You never know what the lake effect snow will do so stay on your toes and for those of you out snowmobiling this weekend please be careful.
 
I was out and about again on Friday getting some Christmas stuff done and today Allie is having friends over on her birthday weekend. I know. A whole weekend! But she is doing great in school and working very hard so we could not be more proud.
 
I’ll be in the studio this afternoon and hope to get a lot done. I have some things set up for today and tomorrow so it should be a good couple of days. And of course soon we’ll be doing our top five downloads of the year month by month and I know a lot of you look forward to that.

Here is a better look at what we have on the Audio Page today as we get updated on what’s happening in Weedsport. Jimmy Phelps runs down the schedule at Weedsport Speedway for 2018, hints that some additional dates could be forthcoming and talks about the new clay they are putting down now.

Joe Marotta shares some memories and tells some stories about fallen racer Johnny Podolak.
Camden Proud offers his take on the switch to crates at Oswego as well as some tire changes.

The snow may be back today as they are predicting another blast of lake effect for the Central New York area. Luckily for us the big snow they predicted on Thursday did not happen as we could use a break not from the snow blowing and all but from the cold as it was in the teens on Thursday.
 
After getting some things done early in the day and getting back in time for my youngest to get off the bus as she had a half day. I got to work a little later and got the two chats recorded that you see today.
 
I have one set up for later today but am always looking for more. Plus tomorrow we’ll speak with Weedsport Speedway GM Jimmy Phelps and find out what they have on tap for 2018 and the new clay being put down as I type.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting out with some sad news as we just lost a veteran racer here in Central New York. Joe Marotta shares some memories and tells some stories about fallen racer Johnny Podolak and his long history in several different types of racecars.

Kraig Kinser reviews his season with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series as he finished eighth.
Denny Peebles talks about kart racing indoors, his 12 races in a Sprint and how his brother is doing.

The kids were happy on Wednesday as they got their first snow day of the year. It started as a two hour delay but quickly turned into a cancellation as we got around a foot of snow on top of what we got on Tuesday. I waited till it slowed down before dinner time and got out my 18 year old Airens to handle the job. And yes, it started right up.
 
I have a pair of interviews for you today from the winged world as we visit with a couple of Sprint Car drivers and give you a Season in Review as well. I will be back at it again today with hopes of getting a lot done. Then I have some running around to do later tonight as we’ll go and see some friends at a local bowling alley.
 
Now let’s tell you more about what we have on the Audio Page as winter has finally arrived in New York State. Kraig Kinser reviews his season with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series as he finished 8th in points and tells me who took him to the races when he was young as well as his mid season victory.

We’re back on a snowy Wednesday with a pair of Season in Review chats with lady Sportsman racers who call Central New York home. One is winning races and making quite a name for herself while the other is in college and just getting her Sportsman career established. They are both really good so give them a listen.
 
After a day off from the website I am going to be back at it today and will be back in the studio. As of now I have nothing planned and am hoping to hear from you at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com with some suggestions on who I should chat with.

Tony Veneziano reports on Sprint Car racing from New Zealand and some news from PRI.
Kip Zeiter talks about Steve Post and his appearance this Saturday at the IMRRC in Watkins Glen.
 
Snow is here and the kids are hoping it is enough to give them a Tuesday off. I’m not so sure about that but it appears winter is going to tighten her grip on us this week. We knew it was going to happen eventually so there is no choice but to ride it out.
 
I hope you’re doing alright today and hopefully your morning commute was a smooth one as it is amazing how man accidents we see in this early season snow. I know all you dirt trackers will be fine out there but be smart. Don’t go pulling on the e-brake to do 180 turns just yet alright?
 
Tomorrow be sure to come back as we give you a couple of Season in Review interviews with a pair of lady Sportsman racers. They are both good and come at things from two totally different perspectives so I hope you like them.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today starting with some items from this past weekend in Indy. Tony Veneziano reports on Sprint Car racing from New Zealand and some news from PRI concerning Kyle Larson, Ryan Newman and much more.
