New on the Audio Page for today:

Bill Shea talks about his new role as promoter at Rolling Wheels and talks about the 2016 season.
Josh Wilder gets ready for today’s opener at Penn Can and tells me about his Four Cylinder Stock.

I had a nice day on Friday as I got some work done in the studio and helped avoid a potential problem here in our new neighborhood.

Our alarm on our floor drain went off twice so we decided to call the town. As they were snaking one of the workers, who I knew from Brewerton Speedway, noticed the main sewage line was backed up. So had I not called, we all could have been in trouble. Whew!

Today I will be back in the studio as I need to stay ahead in case I get jury duty next week. I called on Friday and was told to call back on Monday. Who knows? Maybe I’ll get lucky. Keep your fingers crossed as we have our league championship next week and I’d hate to miss practice and have to start cold. It takes my knees a while to loosen up.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting out with some big news that was announced on Friday. Bill Shea talks about his new role as promoter at Rolling Wheels and talks about the 2016 season as well as his short term and long term goals for the speedway.  

Josh Wilder gets ready for today’s opener at Penn Can and tells me about his Four Cylinder Stock and an issue he had last year that cost him a possible victory.

There is a lot going on this weekend with racing at Georgetown on Friday and then Bridgeport and Penn Can both run on Saturday. It’s a great opportunity to see some racing and know that soon it will be moving north and within the next few weeks everybody will be up and running.

I will be back in the studio today and I may hit a nearby race shop on Saturday. It is a fun time of the year and I wish all of you in the shop all the best as you continue to get your racecars ready for the coming season.

Plus I have my final chat from Finger Lakes Speed World and that is also a real good one too. I will be in the studio today and for the next several days and I am looking once again to speak with racers I have never met.

It will be an epic match next week for sure!

Dane Keller Jr. talked about what he learned his Late Model starts and compared it an IMCA Mod.

The mall shows are over for the most part and now the race teams of our area will get back in the shop to finish their racecars to get them ready for their first action of the year.

I had a great day on Sunday as I got to spend some time with my kids and fish out some babies from the fish tank. We started one a few weeks ago with live breeders and are hoping that soon we’ll have enough new fish to start a second tank for my youngest. It was an exciting day!

On the site we meet some young people who are heavily involved in the sport of auto racing. One of these young people I met for the first time and once again I am impressed with how well these young racers carry themselves. Nice job!

Now let’s chat more about each interview I have up for you today on the Audio Page as we get closer to the start of racing at your favorite speedway. Kelly Hebing toured Motorsports Expo last weekend and told Steve Ovens about her 305 Sprinter as well as how hard everyone is working right now.

Jim Olin previews the final day of Finger Lakes Speedworld and talks about how happy he is.
Tori Kaplan showed off her 600 Micro Sprint and told me about a big change they made last season.
Gary Palone tells me how Paradise Speedway looks right now and looks ahead to the coming season.
Dylan Zacharias described some of the things he learned in his rookie season in a Sportsman.

We had a fun day although an abbreviated one as Allie was a little under the weather. But I was able to get to Finger Lakes Speed World at the Finger Lakes Mall in Auburn. The place was packed when I got there and there were cars all the way from one end of the mall to the other. I was impressed.

You still have one more day to go so get your butts out and have some fun. Plus the Rotterdam Mall show is still going today as is the Fontenac Mall (I hope I got that right.) with cars from Brockville Ontario Speedway. Show your support with dollars spent at the mall and we can keep these shows going for many more years to come.

And on the way home Allie and I stopped by the Firehouse Subs shop in Camillus on Genesee Street. I was impressed. Allie goes to another sub chain that is closer to our house but from here on in I think we’ll be taking more drives to Camillus. The place was spotless and the young employees were very vigilant in keeping it that way. Like I said I was impressed. And our friend Jim Bogett from Mod Lites is a big reason why it is there. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today from the mall show. Jim Olin previews the final day of Finger Lakes Speedworld and talks about how happy he is with the turnout as well as the support of the Finger Lakes Mall. Yeah guys, this is the best one yet!
