Alan Johnson talks about his climb from racing motorcycles and snowmobiles to where he is now.
Nick Stone tells me about his Pro Stock win at Charlotte and how the decision to go was last minute.
 
I had a busy day on Friday and only got into the studio late but was fortunate enough to find two folks to talk with so you could have new stuff to listen to today. And I also began that new series of interviews I am calling The Climb with one of the biggest names in the sport. I think you’ll like it and want more.
 
Today I will be back in the studio again and may actually go out again tonight to see a band, shoot some pool and have a cold one or two. That I have not done at a club in over a year so it will be fun. I need to blow off some steam and tonight sounds as good a night as any to do so.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we begin something new that I hope you’ll like. Alan Johnson talks about The Climb from racing motorcycles and snowmobiles to where he is now as one of Dirt Modified racing’s all time greats. Nice one here! 
 
Nick Stone tells me about his Pro Stock win at Charlotte, how the decision to go was last minute and described a problem they fixed right before the feature race.

Brad Szulewski tells me how a blown motor in May altered his schedule and how he kept on racing.
Allison Teed talks about her move to a Sportsman and remembered how the first race night went.

We hope you all had a nice Halloween that was filled with lots more treats than tricks. We had fun despite a little bit if light rain but it did not slow us down and a huge haul of candy resulted. Now we’ll see if dad can keep his hands off his favorites. We’ll see about that.
 
I have a pair of really good ones up for you today with racers you may not know much if anything about. I love the stories of drivers on the rise who are still learning as they race. I may be getting a little misty in my older age but I really do enjoy these types of interviews and I hope you do too.
 
After I finish typing this up I am heading out to Weedsport and the DIRT Hall of Fame to be the sub host on Jim Olin’s podcast. It will be Allie’s first trip to the HOF and with her getting more familiar with vintage racing I know she will just love seeing the cars inside. It’s is gonna be fun. And I have the easy job. All I have to do is talk and as you guys know I do not have a problem doing that.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a driver who had an issue early in 2018. Brad Szulewski tells me how a blown motor in May altered his schedule, how he kept on racing despite that and wonders exactly what he will be doing in 2019. Good one here!  
 
Allison Teed talks about her move to a Sportsman after several years in a stock car and remembered how the first race night went while explaining why she likes the car so much. She’ll race next at Outlaw Speedway next weekend.

Danny Bouc talks about his hopes to get out two more times and his rough start at New Egypt.
Tyler Cartier reviews his season in a 305 at Land of Legends and his plans to move up to a 360.

As I type this up I am getting ready to take my youngest out trick or treating here in suburban Liverpool. This is a great neighborhood to get candy in and we take it seriously. She’ll get a pillow case full of candy as you can get a lot done here in two hours.
 
We hope all of you who were out with your kids last night were safe and stayed dry. As of 5 p.m. the rain has stopped and we’re hoping it holds off for three more hours. I have a pair of interviews to do when I get back and then we’ll have some fun watching a great basketball documentary on ESPN.
 
Now let’s chat more about what is new on the Audio Page for today starting with a driver who still has a few races left to go in 2018. Danny Bouc talks about his hopes to get out two more times this season, runs down the two different cars he has driven this year and his very rough start at New Egypt. 
 
Tyler Cartier reviews his season in a 305 at Land of Legends Raceway, his final race of the year at Brockville Ontario Speedway and his plans to move up to a 360 Sprint for 2019.

Gary Tomkins reviews his 2018 race season and talks about the stacked weekly field in Brewerton.
Joe Marotta shares some memories of the mile at Syracuse and the legacy of DIRT’s Glenn Donnelly.

We finally got to see some sun on Tuesday and it was nice enough to actually be outside for a while. I hope you got to do the same as it was the first nice day we have had in a while. Let’s hope it stays that way for trick or treating tonight.
 
I got a lot done both before and after bowling although what happened on the lanes is not worth discussing here. It’s been rough! But I need to keep things in perspective and realize that what happens there means nothing.
 
I was upset coming in as a good friend lost his wife suddenly on Tuesday morning. It is beyond sad as young kids are involved too so my prayers and best wishes go out to everyone involved. Hug your loved ones today and count your blessings. We are all truly fortunate to be here.
 
Now let’s chat more about what is new for today on the Audio Page as we chat with a really good Season in Review. Gary Tomkins reviews his 2018 race season in a big block Modified and talks about the stacked weekly field in Brewerton while tackling the six questions.

Tim Pitts talks about Eastern States and reminds me how he first got into announcing at racetracks.
Tony Veneziano reports on the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series this past weekend at Port Royal.

It was yet another cold and rainy day on Monday so I stayed inside, got some work done and chatted with a lot of folks. I have one of those chats up today with more to follow tomorrow as I hope to take a Tuesday off to bowl and watch some NBA with Allie.
 
I got a nice response from my Doug’s Thoughts yesterday as I described The Climb and how dedicated racecar drivers are to what they do. That right there is the biggest thing I think that my oldest daughter Allie got from this past few years as well as the mental discipline it takes to handle the ups and downs of racing. I hope you liked it.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page today starting with a friend I had not spoken to in years. Tim Pitts talks about Eastern States at Orange County Fair Speedway, describes some recent things he has had to deal with away from racing and reminds me how he first got into announcing at racetracks.

Tony Veneziano reports on the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series this past weekend at Port Royal, tells me about the racy track on Sunday while giving us some news from the 410 Sprint Car world.

Craig Pritchard explains why he put a crate engine in his Sportsman and what he is thinking now.
In my latest Doug’s Thoughts I talk about The Climb and how impressed I am with racecar drivers.

Winter is almost here and the past few days have been nothing short of miserable here with cold and rain. And of course we know what is right around the corner and it is not just the snow and cold its stupid daylight savings time. Why do we roll the clocks back every fall so it gets dark before 5 o’clock? I never understood that at all.

So enjoy this last week of driving home in the light and embrace and cold and darkness that is winter. Ugh. As far as I am concerned it should be 85 degrees every day but I know what’s not possible. Again…ugh.
 
Now let’s keep our minds on racing and what is new on the Audio Page starting with a driver who has a choice to make for next season. Craig Pritchard explains why he put a crate engine in his Sportsman, how much he was looking forward to trying it out this past weekend and what he is thinking now as he looks to 2019.  
 
In my latest Doug’s Thoughts I talk about what I call The Climb, how it influences every aspect of every racer’s life and how impressed I am with what it takes to be a racecar driver.

Andrew Ferguson reviews his season in a Modified and talks about some upgrades for 2019.

It was another rainy day in Central New York and that caused a rainout at Utica Rome and a delayed the action at Charlotte. I got a lot of work done in the studio and will do the same tomorrow.

We had fun again last night as I went out to watch the SU game and the World Series game at the same time. Having two tvs to watch would be fun and as I type this up I am just getting ready to go out with an old friend of mine.
 
Now let’s chat more about what is new on the Audio Page for Sunday as we hopefully get a rain free day today. Andrew Ferguson reviews his year in a Modified and talks about some upgrades for 2019 while tackling the six questions in this season in review interview.
