Pete Stefanski ran down his schedule for 2015 and talked about a rule change effects his Sundays.
Joey Payne gets ready for this weekend’s race in Trenton and talks about his new Supermodified.
 
We had a fun day on Wednesday as my oldest daughter Allie celebrated her birthday. We went to dinner with my dad, had cupcakes with a NASCAR theme to them and watched her open gifts. It was a lot of fun but boy she is not my little girl anymore, she’s my young lady and I could not be more proud.
 
Before we left and again after the festivities, I was able to get in the studio and pen a new column for the Syracuse Post Standard. I had to adapt as the interviews I had set up did not pan out so I had to think fast. But thanks to my experiences working a live daily show in TV came in handy and everything worked out fine.
 
Today I’ll be back in the studio again and have decided that Sunday will be my last day doing interviews before we switch over to our top five downloads as we always do at this time of the year. I hate to bug all these racers over the holidays so this always works out well and I know a lot of you enjoy reliving the season that was and seeing who makes the top five for each month.
 
So if you have requests, send them to me now and I’ll get going on them when I can. Racers, if you want to schedule a chat, call me or send me a message either by email or facebook.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page today. It starts with one for all you stock car guys out there. Pete Stefanski ran down his aggressive schedule for 2015 and talked about a rule change for Sundays as well as what makes stock cars different from each other. Comments guys?
 
Joey Payne gets ready for this weekend’s indoor race in Trenton and talks about how rough racing on a tight track can be as well as his new Supermodified.

Taylor Caprara talked about his races in 2014 as well as a schedule change for next season.
Leon Andrus chatted about I-88 and Thunder Mountain as well as how he got his start in racing.
 
We’re back today with more stories from the world of dirt track racing. We’ve got a young driver who will tell us about a possible change for 2015 and a veteran announcer who will tell us about his weekly homes as well as how he started in the sport.
 
I’ll be back in the studio today and will need to get a few interviews done during the day as it is my oldest daughter’s birthday. She wants cupcakes instead of a pie and wants to put her favorite NASCAR driver’s numbers on them. Yes, she wants the one with the 22 on it for sure.
 
Feeling good myself as my back has been real good since my last issue. I followed the advice I got from a good friend and had my second highest series of the year in our final night of the year on Monday. I’m averaging just under 200 for the first time in I don’t know how long so yes, I am feeling good.
 
I hope you are feeling good too as you listen to the new stuff we have on the Audio Page for today. We start with a hard working young man from the North Country. Taylor Caprara talked about his races in 2014 as well as a schedule change for next season and wondered if a Modified might be in his future. 
 
Leon Andrus chatted about I-88 and Thunder Mountain as well as how he got his start in racing as a flagger and when he first moved to the announcer’s booth.

Dillon Sallows got back behind the wheel after a year off and told me how his season went.
Geoffrey VanRiper recaps his season in a Sportsman and tells me about a change for 2015.
 
We have a pair of Sportsman drivers for you today as we continue to finish out the 2014 season here on Doug’s Dirt Diary. We’ll be back in the studio today and hope to get your favorite driver on soon. We only have a few days left of new content so get your requests in now.
 
Both of these drivers today had to take breaks from the sport they love so be sure to give them a listen to understand what really goes on with racers. Life does get in the way of racing at times so I give each of them a lot of credit to know when to race and when put it on the back burner.
 
But don’t hear it from me, go to the Audio Page and hear it from them. Dillon Sallows got back behind the wheel after a year off and told me how his season went as well as why they decided to get out & then get back in again. 
 
Geoffrey VanRiper recaps his season in a Sportsman and tells me about a change for 2015 as well as an upgrade he is doing back at his race shop.

Another work week gets off to start today as the holidays draw closer. How are you doing on your shopping? I am part way there myself but still have a lot to do. I’ll get to it this week hopefully and am waiting for the next snowy night so I can hit the mall in peace.
 
I have two more chats for you today and will be back tomorrow with a pair of Sportsman drivers for you. And we’ll be doing new interviews for about another week before we switch to out top five downloads for each month of the year to finish out.
 
Of course I’ll have another column available in tomorrow’s Syracuse Post Standard and online at www.syracuse.com/motorsports. So look for that.

We’re back on a Sunday with a pair of Season in Review chats. One is with a very established driver who has won championships on touring series while the other young hot shoe just won his first championship as t a weekly track. 
 
Of course as I’ve said before if you have 100 cars in your pit area you’ve got 100 stories right there ready to be told. So I hope you enjoy these interviews and be sure to come back tomorrow.
 
I’ll be in the studio today and need to get at least three new interviews recorded so if you are around and want to chat, send me an email at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com or message me on facebook.

Joe “Geezer” Fanelli tells me how much fun he had racing a Late Model weekly at Grandview.
 
I had a busy day on Friday after a day off on Thursday…well a semi-day off at least. Today I promised my youngest daughter that we would be together all day and I would not be in the studio so I did some extra work on Friday to be able to do that.
 
A big thanks goes out to the people you see today and tomorrow as they helped me on Friday as I had to get at least four interviews done to be able to live up to my promise to Katie for today.
 
We have an action packed day planned as my wife and Allie are going to NYC on a bus tour. They’re seeing a show and going to Times Square. Heck, I’ve never been so maybe I need to work that into my plans. Maybe I can go to Yankee Stadium the next time the Royals are in town…hmm.
 
Now let’s chat more about the new stuff we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page starting with a run down of the season with a rookie promoter.

After a day off on Thursday I’ll be back in the studio today and looking to chat with more of you about what happened this past season as well as what you are thinking about for 2015.
 
To get in the mix yourself, either message me on facebook or send me an email to doug@dougsdirtdiary.com. I look forward to hearing you and for the snow to finally be over today. Although who am I kidding, at this time of the year I don’t mind it much at all.
