Lyle DeVore talks about Albany Saratoga Speedway moving tonight’s show to Thursday, April, 24th.
Paul Cole tells me why Land of Legends Raceway postponed Saturday’s race while keeping practice.
Shawn Miller spoke about how he founded Inside Line Promotions and what they do for race teams.

A lot of news came out yesterday as both Albany Saratoga and Land of Legends Raceway each postponed their openers that were set for this weekend. We’ll visit with the people who made those calls today and find out what adjustments they made to deal with Mother Nature.
 
I’ll be in the studio today getting more stuff to listen to as there is no racing for me to cover today. On Saturday I’ll make it to the Land of Legends practice as we have a thin for my youngest later in the day. That will work out perfectly.

And if everything works out Allie and I should be able to make it to Albany Saratoga this Tuesday. We’re both off from school so I think it would be a great time to head out. I have not been there in close to ten years so I can’t wait.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page today including a first timer with a man who has turned his love of the sport and writing into a full time job, but first...Lyle DeVore talks about Albany Saratoga Speedway moving tonight’s show to Thursday, April, 24th, tells me some of the racers who will be there and reminds you about Lebanon Valley’s opener this Saturday. 
 
Paul Cole tells me why Land of Legends Raceway postponed Saturday’s season opening race while keeping the practice set for Saturday afternoon going.

Not sure exactly what I am doing this weekend as I am jammed up on Saturday but I may be able to hit the practice in Canandaigua ahead of a 4:30 event for my youngest daughter back here. I’ll be hustling for sure on Saturday. And then Sunday we race will Allie so it should be a fun weekend.

I’ve been busy here so we have back to back days with three interviews and tomorrow Allie will make her first appearance on the site this year as she gets ready for her first race of the year this Sunday at the NYS Fairgrounds.

Rick Miller tells me how he got back into racing again late last year and what his 2018 plans are.

What a crappy day it was on Sunday huh? We got out pretty easily compared to some of you as we did not get much if any ice and the power stayed on the whole time. Hoping all of you are alright as I saw several of you were without electricity. Hope it comes back soon.
 
I have two really good ones on the site today as we start up another work week. I was also able to get a few more done after these so it should be a fun week for those of you who like to start your day with me. I also have calls out to a lot of folks so be sure to keep checking back each and every day this week.

Ryan Jordan talked about the engine he just got back and his very aggressive plans for this year.
Bill Knapp told me about his switch to a GM crate engine in his Pro Stock after running Fords since 94.

I had a nice day as we were all feeling much better after our battle with a bug on Thursday and Friday. I went to see my youngest daughter’s dance recital and then got to work. I have two of the three I recorded up today with pans to do more today.
 
Our race for today got cancelled so Allie will have to wait another week to get on the track but it was smart move by the club. Our team has to travel from Romulus to Syracuse in the morning and it was going to be icy in the morning so I was quite worried. Now we’ll wait till next week and hopefully it will be 70 and sunny. Hey, I guy can hope can’t he?

Rusty Smith gets ready for a practice today and talks about his plans and both dirt and asphalt.
Ricky Newton describes the little things he has to wrap up on his car and why he likes Canandaigua.

We had a rough day as a 24 hour bug worked it’s way through our house. My wife had it yesterday and both Allie and I got it on Friday. She got it first and then I got it at about mid morning. So I had to hustle at the end of the day just to get something up for you guys today.
 
I’ll be in the studio again today in late afternoon as my youngest has a dance recital. I’d Facebook live it but she is not as outgoing as Allie and won’t let me do that. How did those two grow up in the same house and turn out so different.
