Well that did not go as planned for me. I was going to go to Fulton Speedway Saturday night after getting some treatment on my leg on Friday. I was excited to try it out but Mother Nature had other ideas.


A late morning, early afternoon rain killed those plans as the action at Oswego Speedway was ground to a halt. And with that racing set to run well into the night officials had no choice but to axe the show at Fulton.



I’ll use the time well as we’ll be stretching and doing exercises hoping to get myself better for next season. I’ll take today as well and get back in the studio again on Monday. I hope you all had a great day on Saturday and I hope you’re not too tired coming into the final day today.

Super DIRT Week rolls on with a big day on tap both in Oswego and at Fulton Speedway. I’m gonna go as long as I can today at Fulton as this will probably be my last race of the season.

I saved some stuff from Thursday at Brewerton for you guys today and will have more from Fulton up for you tomorrow. There should be a good car count on hand for this one and I just hope that Mother Nature cooperates today so we can get in both shows with no issues.

Now let’s chat more about what is new on the Audio Page for today starting with more from Brewerton on Thursday. Greg Martin told me about his season at Ransomville, why he swapped out his W-16 engine for a DIRT 358 and why he wished he would have painted his spare front axle. 

A.J. Miller talked about some adjustments he made for Brewerton, how he did on Wednesday night at Weedsport as well as how he missed a big wreck on Tuesday at Utica Rome. 

Dustin Hutton summed up how he did this past year and Can Am, remembered the long day he had to finish out the season there and why his car likes the track so much.

Well I tried to go last night at Brewerton Speedway but after about two hours my left foot started barking and I was done. I’m icing everything down as I write this as I am doing both my knee and foot. I’ll be taking it easy today and will try to go again on Saturday at Fulton. Wish me well.

When I left the cars were just getting on the track for hot laps and it was already starting to get cold. I hope you had a great night last night and it is killing me to have to miss the qualifiers tonight under the lights in Oswego. I just love the Friday night format and I hope all the races go well and everyone loads up an uninjured car at the end of the night.

I was a glorified taxi driver on Wednesday as I shuttled Allie and her friend to and from boxing and got Katie from gymnastics. As we figured there was just too much going on and my wife got held up so off I went and went and went and went.

We have those things worked out for today though as I will be able to go to Brewerton Speedway tonight to cover the pair of Super DIRTcar Series races for both 358 Modifieds and Sportsman. It’s been a long time since I have been to this particular show and if everything works out I should be there by 4 p.m. so I can load up.

I’ll have some stuff from Brewerton up tomorrow and then some pre race stuff for Saturday. Then I’ll hit Fulton Saturday night and call it a season. I’ll be doing the things I need to do with even more dedication after I beat up my leg and back one more time. I’ll be alright and hopefully back to full speed in 2020 as we have a lot of cool things in the works.

Now let’s chat more about what is going on today on the Audio Page with one of my favorite guys to talk to from the other side of the world and boy would I like to see how he would do if he could run a season over here. Kevin Britten talks about winning another Australian Modified Championship, what he likes best about visiting America to see his older brother race and describes his role this week as well as his hopes to maybe get his driver’s suit some use.

I have not been to these two nighttime shows in many years and I wanna do what everyone else is not doing this week. It will be a blast.

I had a fun day on Monday as I got a lot done both for the website and my life in general. I had putting something off and I got that done as I tend to procrastinate when something is around the corner that I either don’t really wanna do or am afraid of how it might turn out. I know…I need to work on that.

I have some more things on that list and every day this week I will address one of them and by the end of the week I’ll be good. I’m sure that will make me feel a lot better and relieve some of that stressful feeling I get every night when my head hits the pillow.

And to finish off my day I got to be a guest on Wheel People with Ed Lamberton. Ed runs these shows on Facebook and he always has an impressive list of guests every Monday. Go online to see some of Ed’s work as he is very passionate about racing. And thanks for having me on Ed! I had fun.
