I will be back in the studio today and we’ll be writing again too for the Syracuse Post Standard and Syracuse.com. Soon we’ll be racing all over the northeast and after my trip to Southern Tier Speedworld I am ready to go.

We had a fun day as Allie and I headed south to Johnson City to check out the cars at Southern Tier Speedworld. The Oakdale Mall was packed with racecars and packed with cars in the parking lot as well. It was a fun day and it was great to see some people I have known for many years and meet some new racers which is my main goal this year.

We have four up today and will have at least three a day up for the next five days. You’ll be hearing from a lot of new racers this week and I want to continue this trend as I need to hit the road more this year.

Racers, if I have not interviewed you yet or maybe not in many years, please send me a message at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com or message me on Facebook. I want to expand my base a little and expand my focus a little too. Any thoughts you have would be greatly appreciated.

Mark Green tells me why he will back racing weekly for the first time since 2001 in a Late Model.

We have a pair of new folks for you today as we continue to try expand our reach a little here. Each driver we have up today is doing something different this year so I hope you enjoy each of them.

Today we’ll be on the road and heading south to Johnson City for Southern Tier Speedworld inside the Oakdale Mall. Allie has been sick the last few days so she may or may not make it down with me today so we’re keeping our fingers crossed that’s she feels well enough to make the trip.

We’ll be loading up today and hope to get to the mall by 1 p.m. at the latest and stay through dinner time. We are going to spend a little money at the mall too and we encourage you to do the same to help keep this show coming back for many years to come.

Now let’s chat about the new stiff we have today on the Audio Page starting with a driver I just met on the phone on Friday. Matt Depew talks about his winning season at Malta in 2015, why he will run a Mopar big block in 2016 and remembers his days racing snowmobiles as a teenager.

I was able to track down some people who were down in Florida last week and I put both of those up for you today. And thanks to Lyle DeVore for setting up the J.R. Heffner chat for me and I may even be able to get another one of his drivers today. Keep your fingers crossed.

Plus I spoke with my old friend Mark Green who I got know back in my days with the Outlaw Circuit. He will be racing weekly this year for the first time since 2001 so look for that tomorrow.

Saturday of course we’ll be heading to Southern Tier Speedworld to see some folks who will be racing in southern New York and northern Pennsylvania. It is one of my favorite days of the year and I look forward to seeing a lot of you down there this weekend.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we visit with two folks who may already have a tan started. J.R. Heffner talks about what he learned at Volusia last week, his change to a more traditional chassis for 2016 and his plans to run Malta and Lebanon Valley weekly.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Doug Smith recaps his first full year in a crate Sportsman and talks about his plans for this season.
Dan Harpell previews Southern Tier Speedworld taking place this weekend at the Oakdale Mall.

It was a cold and rainy day on Wednesday and it is a good time of the year for that as the snow keeps melting which will help the clay bind to the dirt tracks of the northeast although it did make for a tough time at the bus stop in the morning.

We’re back with more good stuff for you today and will be back in the studio again today and tomorrow. This weekend of course we’ll be in Johnson City for Southern Tier Speedworld and I look forward to talking racing with you and seeing my first racecars of the year.

This is a big deal guys so be sure to listen to my chat with Dan Harpell as we remind you guys to look sharp, wear your racing gear and spend money to show your support for this show. Be ready to educate the non-racing folks we see this weekend and encourage them to come out and see what we do. Once we can get them there we can turn them into fans but not until we get them there.

Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page for today starting out with a driver I just met on the phone during this interview. I know you’ll like it. Doug Smith recaps his first full year in a crate Sportsman at Black Rock Speedway and talks about his plans for this season that will see him at Canandaigua on Saturdays.  

Dan Harpell previews Southern Tier Speedworld taking place this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Oakdale Mall in Johnson City, New York. We’ll see you there!
