The snow continues here in Central New York as does the jealousy I fell for all of you who are down in warmer climates.

Marc Johnson tells me how he found a ride in a TQ Midget for this weekend’s big races in Albany.
Travis Smith talks about his move up to Modified for 2018 and how he bowled back to back 300's.

We had a snow day for the kids on Wednesday even though we only had about four to five inches of snow. I was a little surprised but the kids didn’t mind it at all. After snowblowing the driveway I took a drive to do some errands as I do still love driving around town in the snow. Not so happy on the Thruway in the snow with all the crazies who think they can drive but I love driving the snowy roads around town.

I got some work done in the studio and was able to get ahead by a day heading into a busy race weekend. We’ve got a lot to keep our eyes on this weekend and I hope your favorite form of racing is on track and I hope you get to see it and maybe even be a part of it. Have fun and be safe guys and gals.
