   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
David Russell tells me about the road course cars he owns that will compete next weekend at Daytona.
Kane Bristol talked about a last minute trip before the storm and the new car they are assembling.
 
The snow started here just after lunchtime and stayed pretty steady although it was not really piling up much as I write this up at 5:45. I’m planning on going out at about 9 on Saturday to get some of the snow off the driveway so I don’t have to deal with all of it today. My old Airens has 20 winters on it and I don’t want to push it too much.
 
I hope you all are surviving the storms alright and I hope none of you were stranded by it as depending on where you live is a big factor on whether you get just snow or snow and ice which is a whole other deal. So we’ll be thinking about all of you and wishing you the best today.

Of course I watched the Chili Bowl after I wrote this up as it usually goes past midnight so we’ll talk more about that tomorrow so be sure to stop by.

Now let’s talk in more detail about the stuff we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page beginning with someone who will see his cars race this Friday. David Russell tells me about the road course cars he owns that will compete next weekend at Daytona, describes some of his own racing background and why he selected dirt racer Brandon Kidd to be one of his drivers. Good one here guys!  
 
Kane Bristol talked about a last minute trip to the store before the storm, the new car they are getting ready to assemble and what his strategy is when building from the frame up.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Mike Martin talks about his race party next Saturday and how he is doing in his Novice Sportsman.
Alyssa Sharman previews today’s Ms. Motorsports pageant and describes what it’s like to be in.

We had a good day on Friday as we sit ready and waiting for whatever Mother Nature may have for us today and tomorrow. The predicted snow totals are all over the place but one thing we do seem to know for sure is that snowblowers will be operational this weekend.
 
I’ll be in the studio today trying to get work done before tonight’s Chili Bowl on MAV TV. If any of you locally don’t have it and want to brave your way to our place you are more than welcome. It’s gonna be a lot of fun and hopefully a safe day as well as those Midget cars sure do flip a lot in Tulsa.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a driver who is helping to kick off the off season race party season. Mike Martin talks about his race party next Saturday, describes some of the activities around it and how he is doing in his Novice Sportsman.  
 
Alyssa Sharman previews today’s Ms. Motorsports pageant and describes what it’s like to be a part of and what it can mean for a young lady’s future. Good one here guys!

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Dan Harpell talks about Southern Tier Speedworld and the next generation at Five Mile Point.
Butch Green recaps his 12 win Street Stock season and talks about racing with his young son.
 
We are all bracing for what could be a wild weekend here in the northeast. A blizzard is on the way and from what we’re hearing we could get anywhere from 12-18 inches. It’s not supposed to come all at once so hopefully we can stay ahead of it here and it won’t slow us down too much.
 
I’ll be busy again in the studio today hoping to stay ahead just in case there are any big issues on Saturday. And don’t forget that for those of you to our south, the weather is much better for you and you should have no trouble getting to Motorsports 2019 just outside of Philly.
 
You all have fun and think of us here in snow country as you enjoy seeing all the new racecars and stuff that is in store for 2019. I wish I could be there with you guys.
 
Now let’s chat more about what’s new on the Audio Page starting with good news from a track that we were a little worried about a few months ago. Dan Harpell talks about Southern Tier Speedworld Mar 1-3rd, and the next generation of Harpell’s taking over at Five Mile Point Speedway and shares some memories of his father. 
 
Butch Green recaps his 12 win Street Stock season in the Southern Tier, runs down his plans for the coming season and talks about racing with his young son.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Mike Mahaney talks about his new ride for 2019 and describes the work he is doing in the shop.
Earl Krause previews this weekend’s Motorsports 2019 taking place this Friday, Saturday & Sunday.

I got a lot done on Wednesday ahead of what will be a busy day for us away from racing. And don’t forget about Motorsports 2019 this weekend in Oaks, Pennsylvania where I hear the weather will be nothing like it will be here in Central New York so head out tomorrow to get there early and see the show.
 
We’re bracing for the snow this weekend which for us could be as much as two feet or as little as one foot. So I’ll be making sure we have fuel for the snowblower and anything else we need just in case the power were to go out. That’s what a gas fireplace comes in real handy. We hope al of you are ready and will be fine this weekend as we sit snowed in
 
Now let’s chat more about what is new on the Audio Page starting with a driver who is busy learning where things are in the new race shop with his new team. Mike Mahaney talks about his new ride for 2019, describes the work he is doing in the shop to get the cars ready and what he has been doing to get himself ready for the season as well. 
 
Earl Krause previews this weekend’s Motorsports 2019 taking place this Friday, Saturday & Sunday, describes the highlights for each day as well as how much he enjoys doing some announcing at the event.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Sean Corr tells me about his practice laps at Daytona and his hopes for the ARCA race in February.
Ernie Saxton and I chat about early season racing and wonder about the future of big crowds.

I was busy again on Tuesday and decided not to take a day off this week but rather just to keep plugging along. I did both these chats in the late afternoon and will be very busy today as there is lots to write and talk about this week.
 
This is going to be a fun weekend for a lot of people as not only are they racing in Oklahoma in the Chili Bowl but Motorsports 2019 is this weekend in Oaks, Pennsylvania. There will be a lot of news that will come out from this weekend and a lot of iron on display that you will see later this year at your favorite track so get your butts out of the house and you’ll still have time to watch the A-Main Saturday night.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a man who is smiling right about now after his first laps of the season. Sean Corr tells me about his practice laps at Daytona this past Friday & Saturday, how happy he was with his rebuilt racecar and his hopes for the ARCA race on February 9th.  
 
Ernie Saxton and I chat about early season racing, remind everyone about Motorsports 2019 and we both wonder about the future of big crowds as well as whether they are needed for the bottom line.

I had a nice day on Monday as I did some writing in the afternoon and then did another interview for the website before settling in to watch some basketball with Allie as we do that almost every day. Yeah, she has slid right from racing into basketball and that’s just fine with me. Her first scrimmage with her team is on Thursday at LeMoyne College.
 
I have some cool things on my to do list for today as I am off from bowling due to the knee injury I had last week. We’re getting better but are not quite there yet. It stinks getting old ya know.

I had a nice day as Allie and I watched the SU women’s basketball team ahead of Allie’s first scrimmage with her new team this Thursday. And I even snuck in some football between chats and we had a really nice day.
 
I’ll be busy today with lots to write and lots to talk about. I have several things set up so we’ll see how we do on what should be a very busy Monday. Knee is still tweaked a little so we’ll see about bowling tomorrow night. It could be a game day call there.
