I had a busy Sunday and got to record a bunch of new interviews as I watched the NCAA tournament games. They were both really entertaining and now at just before 8 p.m. Sunday night I am going to start watching the NASCAR race from California.

I’ll be back in the studio again to get ready for championship Tuesday in our bowling league and I already have a few things set up. I am always looking to do more so if you want in just message me on Facebook or at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page starting with a winning Modified driver from north of the border. Brian McDonald talked about his three win season in 2016, where he will start his season in 2017 and thought back on his start in racing in a Street Stock back in 1988.

The weekend is finally here and we’ve got a couple of nice ones for you today as we meet with a pair of drivers who ae getting ready for their first full season in the ultra competitive Sportsman division. I hope you like them both and will give them a listen.

I will taking a ride with Allie today to see the open wheel microd she will be racing this season. She is excited and can’t wait to sit in the car and see what it is like. We’re renting the car to start with hopes that we can bring along some sponsors in the form of product or money to keep it going. If you’d like to help let us know. The big goal is not to turn her into the next big racer but to make her a better driver when she turns 16.

More news out today on how the snow is pushing back season starters here in the northeast as Utica Rome was the latest to do so on Thursday. There is still a lot of snow out there and as Bill Shea reminded us the next week is supposed to be rainy. The rain melts the snow obviously but makes the already saturated ground that much wetter.

We also have a pair of racers up from some local car shows as we get ready for the weekend. I still have some calls to make today and don’t forget Bridgeport and Delaware International are still a go for this weekend. Yay!

It was another real nice day on Wednesday as the sun continued to melt some snow around here although it did have to get through an overnight dusting first.

We still have a lot of interviews in the can and will dig into some of those for you for tomorrow but that does not mean we won’t be busy today.
