New on the Audio Page for today:

Ryan Krachun reviewed his season at New Egypt and talked about some advice from a fellow driver.
In my latest Doug’s Thoughts I offer my take on 2019, the New York tracks and our own racing.

What a great day it was on Sunday. The sun was out and temperatures were in the mid 40’s. And they’re supposed to stay that way for a few days. That’s good news for all of you holiday travelers. No white knuckle driving in the snow this year eh? That’s a nod to my Canadian friends there.

I am down to one more day of new stuff on the site this year as our own Season in Review begins Christmas Day. They’ll be a lot of what you expect plus a few surprises. I know you’ll enjoy it so be sure to come back for that. And we’ll be back with more new stuff tomorrow so be sure to check in with us somewhere along the way.

Now let’s chat a little more about what we have for you on the Audio Page today starting with a Season in Review with a young driver who is on the rise. Ryan Krachun reviewed his winning season at New Egypt and talked about some advice from a fellow driver as well as why he feels traveling to as many big Modified shows as he can right now can really help. 

In my latest Doug’s Thoughts I offer my take on the 2019 racing season, the Northeast tracks I have been covering and reflect a little on our own racing efforts with my oldest daughter Allie.
