Scott Kreutter explains why he missed the last indoor race and looks forward to racing Syracuse.
Michele Payne Kuleszo talks about the Southern Tier Microd Club and her 4 races this past season.

It was a real nice day on Saturday and I was finally feeling well enough to get out and enjoy it a little. I was careful not to do too much and I am almost through this, I can tell. I’ll probably have to miss another week of bowling as I do not want to get back to where I was earlier this week. It was brutal.
 
I’ll be back in the studio today and looking to get a lot done as we get ready to say goodbye to the winter break and get back to life as we know it. Allie has been driving with her learner’s permit and that has been fun and surprisingly not stressful at all. Cool!
 
Now I’ll tell you a little more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today starting with a man who has a new addition back home. Scott Kreutter explains why he missed the last indoor race in Atlantic City, tells me how his young son is doing and looks forward to racing at the new venue in Syracuse.

Michele Payne Kuleszo talks about her new job with the Southern Tier Microd Club, explains how it has helped her young daughter in other areas and recaps her 4 races this past season.

Billy Pauch Sr. recaps his four races in Florida and tells me about some changes he would like to see.
Brandon Kidd invites us to RPM Raceway this Wednesday to learn investing and get a free kart race.

I had a nice day on Friday as I dug out my old VCR as well as some of my old tapes. We watched some old races including some of the old This Week on DIRT shows from the 1990’s. And how many of you remember the Empire DIRT Series? Yep, saw that too. It was a blast.
 
I got some work done in the studio as well and we’re trying to track down why some of the recent interviews have had a hum in them at times. I tried something on Friday so we’ll keep our eyes on things and see if we have it fixed. Sorry about that.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today starting with a veteran driver who just got back from his first races of the year. Billy Pauch Sr. recaps his four races in Florida, describes an issue he had on the final night and tells me about some changes he would like to see to the body work of today’s dirt Modifieds. 
 
Brandon Kidd invites us to RPM Raceway this Wednesday at 6 p.m. to learn investing, get a free meal from Dinosaur BBQ and get a free kart race. You can register for one of these limited spaces on his racing Facebook page or by sending him an email at bkidd@pinnacle-llc.com

Peter Britten recapped his four races at Volusia and told me about racing smart with your own team.
Tanner Harpell highlights 2 big Modified races at 5 Mile Point as well as their other 8 shows in 2019.
 
We had a nice day on Thursday as I continued to get better physically and my oldest daughter Allie got her permit and got behind the wheel of my Mercury later in the day. Of course we started in a parking lot as the Microd she drove could not be more different than a street car. She stomped on the brakes a few times and got on the gas a little quickly too but that will come in time.
 
We were able to get some work done in the studio and we’ll be back at it again today. I’ll be in there all weekend too with a big Saturday afternoon session planned before we hit our first pre-season car shows next weekend as Southern Tier Speedworld and Fingerlakes Speedworld are both next weekend and we will be at both shows.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who just got back from Florida. Peter Britten recapped his four races at Volusia this past week, told me about some of the economic realities of running your own team and why a certain Australian beer we all know is not as popular there as it is here. 
 
Tanner Harpell highlights two big Modified races at 5 Mile Point beginning with one honoring racer Doug Worthing, confirms that that have ten total Mod races on the schedule and talks about the new challenge for he and his two brothers.

I got a lot done again as I continue to focus hard on work to take my mind off my sore neck. It was a little better on Wednesday but nowhere near where it needs to be so we’ll just keep doing what we should be doing and hope for the best.
 
Three good ones for you today and be sure to come back tomorrow to hear from Peter Britten as he talks about his four races at Volusia and some things we believe about Australia that may or may not be true. Oh man! I feel like I’ve been lied to by the beer industry. Make sure to check that out.

Willy Decker Jr. waits on his new chassis and tells me how close he is to his first Sportsman win.
Jeffrey Cardinale talks about racing his IMCA Modified again and some good news he’s received.

I kept myself pretty busy on Tuesday as I did some running around town and did a lot of interviews in the studio. I’m still hurting with my neck and now my shoulder but we’re powering through it and staying busy so I have less time to think about it. I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing to get better so anytime now I’ll be back at full strength and out of the medicine cabinet and the shower.
 
I even have a bunch of things set up today too as well as some in the can so outside of that everything is just fine. And we’re researching a way so I can get back to writing and keep that writing right here on the site and free to view. I’ll keep you posted on that.
 
Now let’s chat more about what is new for today on the Audio Page including a bonus track since I got so far ahead on Tuesday. Todd Root told me who he was working with in Florida, offered his take on his first trip to Volusia and described how his small block looks for 2019.
 
Willy Decker Jr. waits on his new chassis and tells me how close he feels he is to his first Sportsman win and runs down where we will see him race this season. Sorry, the audio is a little low in spots.

Glenn Forward talks about a chassis change and analyzes what he did last year with tire prep.
Tony Veneziano reports on the King of the 360’s from East Bay and previews the next WoO races.
 
I’ve been hurting here the last few days and finally on Monday I reached out to a friend who gave some very specific things to do to feel better. I work up with a crick in my neck last Tuesday, thought bowling might help and that only made things worse. Since then it’s gotten worse by the day and I am on no sleep right now at all. Hopefully my sore neck and shoulder gets better soon and I can get back to a normal life. Ugh! And thanks Hulk for the advice!
 
I’ll be in the studio today but not on the lanes as I need to take some time off till I get better. I’ll try a few names from Florida today and I also have some other calls out as well so we’ll be good to go tomorrow one way or another. And hopefully I’ll get some much needed sleep here too!
 
Now let’s chat more about what is new on the Audio Page for today beginning with a Modified driver getting ready for his second season in the class. Glenn Forward talks about a chassis change for 2019, explains why that means a switch in bolt on parts too and analyzes what he did wrong last year with tire prep. 
 
Tony Veneziano reports on the King of the 360’s from East Bay Raceway in Florida, gives us some news on Ford engines with TSR and previews the next WoO races in Texas.

And today I will be back in the studio with lots of things to talk about. Florida is now history and I hope all of you who went down had a great trip and even if the results were not what you wanted, I hope you at least had fun and learned something. That’s what all these early races are really all about.
