Eldon Payne Jr. reviews his 2019 racing season as he picked up his first career Modified feature wins.
Dwight Nichols explained why he got a late start in 2019 and why he was sidelined in late August.

I had a nice day on Saturday as I got four interviews recorded in the studio. Two of those are up today and more are coming as I’ll be back in for a while later this afternoon.

We’re celebrating Allie’s birthday a little early later on today but I hope to get in the studio both before and after we do that. I’ll be down the street watching the early games with friends and then I’ll head back and get to work. We have a nice bunch at the place we go to. It’s not too crowded and the food is excellent.

Now let’s chat more about what I did yesterday that is on the Audio Page for you to enjoy right now. Eldon Payne Jr. reviews his 2019 racing season as he picked up his first career Modified feature wins, explained why the second win was even sweeter than the first and remembers a scary wreck at Utica Rome a few years ago that really got him thinking. 

Dwight Nichols explained why he got a late start in 2019 with hit Sportsman, why he was sidelined in late August and what he is doing this off season to be ready for a full year in 2020. Go get ‘em Dwight and stay healthy!

It was a cold and rainy day on Friday so I spent some time inside chatting on the phone with folks from the racing community. I had fun with my family and finished the week out well.

Today I will be in the studio most of the day as I am busy on Sunday and need to be able to take that off. We’ll be celebrating Allie’s birthday a little early and it will be fun as we all get together to wish her a happy 17th and have some cake.

I only have another ten or eleven days of new stuff before we review the year that was so if you want me to check in with your favorite driver please send me a message at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com or message me on Facebook.

It was a cold one on Thursday and I ran around town in it and got some work done in the studio in between. I have a Season in Review for you today as well as some news from the DIRTcar world as the 358, Sportsman and Pro Stock Series races for 2020 were announced.

I’ll be back at it again today as I’ll be in the studio with nothing planned as of now. I always come up with something so come back tomorrow to see who I get ahold of. Wishing I was at PRI and one of these years down the road I’ll be sure to get there. Hope you all who are out there have a blast.

Now let’s chat more about what is new on the Audio Page for today starting with a man who had a career year this past season. Rocky Warner reviews his 18 win, three championship season and explained why two of his wins were so special as well as the time he was trapped in his Modfiied.

Alan Rudalavage reviews his ten race season and compared how he did at both Afton and Penn Can.  
Paul Cole reacts to winning Promoter of the Year at the DIRTcar banquet and looks ahead to 2020.

I had a nice day off on Wednesday as I was able to take care of some things that I had let slide and needed to be buttoned up. I also got to see some friends and do some running around in between taking Allie to her duties as Team Manager for the Liverpool Girls Varsity Basketball team.  In today’s tech savvy world there is a lot more to it than you could imagine and this experience will surely help her down the road.

I am going to be back in the studio tomorrow as the can is empty and will hope to continue the Season in Review interviews we’ve been doing. And there is some news out there too with drivers we know and I’ll be on that too.

Now let’s chat more about what is new on the Audio Page as we start with a highly requested conversation. Alan Rudalavage reviews his ten race season in a small block Modified and compared how he did at both Afton and Penn Can as well as how badly things went on the first night of the 2019 season. 

Paul Cole reacts to winning Promoter of the Year for DIRTcar Northeast, describes what the award means to and tells us some of what is happening next year in Canandaigua including three Super DIRTcar Series races.

Billy Pauch Jr. reviews his 14 win season and tells me what it takes to get him to go to a special.
Ryan Jordan talked about his 2 win season in a Modified as he raced at seven different dirt tracks.

We have a couple of young Modified racers up for you today as we continue our Season in Review. I’ll be doing these till just before Christmas so if you want me to nail down your favorite driver and ask them the six questions then be sure to send me an email to doug@dougsdirtdiary.com or message me on Facebook and I’ll do my best to sneak it in before the new year.

Good news for me as I got back on the bowling lanes on Tuesday and did better than okay. Five weeks of work in the gym has really helped me improve. A lot of you saw me at the end of the season and I could barely walk. I had commitments and I honored those but then broke down physically in a big way. I do need to eat better but the exercises I have been doing are paying off. I’m very happy and excited about the future. Yay!

Enough about me, let’s give you a little more about the new interviews you can hear right now on the Audio Page as we check in with a pair of winning drivers. Billy Pauch Jr. reviews his 14 win season in three different types of racecars and tells me what it takes to get him to go to a mid-week special while remembering the one night he said, How could it get any worse?”  

Ryan Jordan talked about his 2 win season as he finished 3rd in points at his Saturday home, described what a challenge it is racing Modifieds and remembered when his cage collapsed after a big crash.

Mike Bowman reviews his season at Merrittville & Ransomville and runs down his plans for 2020.
Tony Veneziano reports on racing from New Zealand and looks over the WoO & All Star schedules.

I got a lot done on a rainy Monday and will be back in the studio again today before taking a day off on Wednesday. My youngest has a concert that night so it will be nice to lay low and not have anything to do before that.

I’ll be hitting the lanes today after my workout and hoping to get in more than thirteen frames like I did last week. My knees and shoulder were fine but my back was not quite there yet. Hey, I’m excited. Remember, I could barely walk two months ago and had to cut my season short because I just could not get around the pits anymore. So to be able to get in anything physical today is special.

Now let’s chat more about what is new for today on the Audio Page starting with another Season in Review interview. Mike Bowman reviews his winning season at Merrittville & Ransomville Speedways, shares the advice he would have given to himself 44 years ago and runs down his tentative plans for 2020.  

Tony Veneziano reports on racing from New Zealand and looks over the WoO & All Star Sprint Car schedules as well as what has changed for each of those traveling series.

Frank Nortz spoke about the Slush Crush 100 taking place January 4th at Adirondack International.

I hope you all had a great weekend and that today is not going to be to tough after a few days off. Not to worry, more days off are coming as December seems to fly by every year.

I know that some of you got to celebrate your season this past weekend as several tracks had their annual banquets. Hopefully all of your shop work is going well and hopefully that money you won goes right back into the racecar as we all start thinking more and more about the coming season.

I got a lot done last night so we’ll have more good stuff for you tomorrow and we also have things set up for tonight too. It’s gonna be a fun week as 2019 winds down and I hope you all are doing well and feeling happy.

Now let’s chat about what is on the Audio Page including a man who was very happy with how things went last season as every race he ran resulted in a top ten finish. Otto Sitterly talked about winning his 9th championship at Oswego Speedway, how nice it was win on the same night as he teammate and told me about a dirt track he’d like to pave if he won a big lottery. Hmm. 

Frank Nortz spoke about the Slush Crush 100 taking place January 4th at Adirondack International Raceway, the vintage snowmobile racing on February 29th and gives us a few teasers about 2020.
