   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Larry Wight recapped his four races in Volusia and talked about coming from the back twice.
Tim Sears Jr. tells me a little about his 2014 season as he gets his point money at the Winter Bash.
 
I got a lot done today and got some material to write a bonus column that will show up in Sunday’s Syracuse Post Standard. Plus we also have one that will be in today’s edition as well. Yep, we’ve been busy alright.
 
I also got in a much requested interview with Larry Wight. I can’t tell you how many messages and emails I had about him. “He was the show,” people would tell me. And after talking with him last night, I can see why. He came from the back twice on a track that is not known for that. 
 
Tomorrow I’ll be at the Oakdale Mall for Southern Tier Speedworld and I hope to see a lot of you out with your racecars ready to show the people what we do in the racing world. These mall shows are very important and I know you guys will be great at teaching the public about our racecars and what we do. It’s a great chance to create new fans and I can’t wait to go.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with your gator winner from Florida. Larry Wight recapped his four races in Volusia and talked about coming from the back twice as well as how he liked the new chassis he tried out for the first time. 
 
Tim Sears Jr. tells me a little about his 2014 season as he gets his point money at the Winter Bash and describes how things are going at his race shop.

What do you know? Another non-snowy day in Central New York. How about that? It was so nice I was able to go to the store with my jacket unzipped. What a day.
 
We are back with a pair of chats today and we’ll be back tomorrow as well. As always I am trying my best to tell the stories of racing in our area and I am thrilled that people like the ones I have on the site take time to talk with me. They don’t have to but they do. It’s refreshing to say the least.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page. I start with the driver who surprised a lot of people this past week in Florida. Neal Williams talks about his four races in Florida and how good it felt to win on the final night especially with the big names he passed on his way to the front.

And I did not have to move any snow from my driveway for a change. How about that? I know you guys didn’t mind that all that much. And if you look ahead in the forecast we may hit 30 this weekend. Get those racecars ready huh?

Chris Fleming tells mehow he won 30 races this past season and adding a Late Model for 2015.
John Cunningham talked about his 305 Sprint Car championship and his hopes to run Sportsman.
 
As usual it was a busy day for me on Monday as we got some work done writing a new column for the Syracuse Post Standard and some website work done as well. It was a fun day too as I rolled a 602 series on the lanes after a 173 opener. We’re hovering around 198 for an average and that is the highest I have been since the early 90’s so I am smiling all the way around.
 
We have some good stuff for you today from the Winter Bash on Saturday and we’ll be back in the studio today. And we’ll be at Oakdale Mall this Saturday for their annual car show. It runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday so we hope to see you there. Allie will be with me as she will never pass up a chance to see racecars.
 
Now let’s chat more about the new stuff we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a driver who just enjoyed his finest season to date.

Chris Hulsizer described how his 2015 season went as he finished 6th in Sportsman points at Fulton. 
 
I hope you all enjoyed the race at Daytona on Sunday as much as we did. We went to dad’s house to watch the race and let Allie go wild rooting on her favorite driver. And guess what? That driver won so she is as happy as can be.
 
I know a lot of the teams that raced Florida this past week made their way back on Sunday as well and a messaged Neal Williams as he was on his way back from his surprise win on Saturday night. We’ll be chatting later tonight so if all works out we’ll hear from him tomorrow on the site.
 
Today we have some audio from the Brewerton and Fulton Speedway Winter Bash. What a great time I had seeing everyone and catching up on things. I get in a bubble at this time of the year and forget how much people listen to the website and read what I write. It was nice to get reminded of that so thanks to everyone for their kind words on Saturday. They mean the world to me.
 
Now let’s chat more about that new stuff we have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page starting with a multi-time champion who was the first interview I did on Saturday.  Chuck Powelczyk talked about his pair of championships at Brewerton and Fulton Speedways and thinks back to his early days in the Four Cylinder Super Stock division.

Mike Mahaney talks about the racecars he will be driving this year including a new ride for specials.
Earl Rudy explains what he is working on at his race shop as he gets ready for a busy 2015 season.
 
I got a lot done on Saturday even after we had an issue with a floor drain in our basement. It was clogged but with help from the Town of Clay we were able to get it cleared out. We dodged a bullet on that one for sure.
 
After we got that done I got in the studio and recorded some new chats. And after dinner I am heading out to the Winter Bash in Baldwinsville for the Brewerton and Fulton Speedways. I hope to have audio up for tomorrow and Tuesday from that. My new recorder is on back order so I will have to use the old one so it will not be of great quality but know that soon the new unit will be here and clear audio from road trips will be commonplace again.
 
Now let’s chat more about the new stuff we have for you on the Audio Page from the studio on Saturday. Mike Mahaney talks about the racecars he will be driving this year including a new ride for specials and runs down what he hopes to do in the coming season.

Mark Weaver talks about hisopen motor Sportsman and his hopes to get a crate car together.
Cory Reed tells me about tonight’s Brewerton & Fulton Speedway Winter Bash and their mall show.
 
Once again we are trudging our way through the winder of 2015 and again the snowblowers were in action with a good five inches of snow on Thursday night. Nice thing is we may get a few days off from it before it hits again. But it is getting tough to find places to put the snow as the height of the snow banks is higher than the snowblower or your back can reach. Wishing you guys the best as you deal with the snow.
 
I got some work done right before dinner time for you to listen to today and I hope to hit the studio this afternoon and the Brewerton & Fulton Speedway Winter Bash after that. It takes place in Baldwinsville at The Ale House at Radission’s Gold Course and it is free to attend. I’ll bring a recorder with me and have audio from that down the road.
 
Now let’s talk more about what we have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page starting with a man who is almost ready for the coming season. Mark Weaver talks about hisopen motor Sportsman, described some of the upgrades he has made as he hopes to win his first race since 1984 and his hopes to get a crate car together. 
 
Cory Reed tells me about tonight’s Brewerton & Fulton Speedway Winter Bash at The Ale House at Radisson, their mall show in March at Great Northern Mall as well as Sportsman & Late Model news.
