New on the Audio Page for today:

Steve Poirier talks about winning the ESS Championship and how to get around Fonda Speedway.
Anthony Perrego runs down his hopes for the King of the Catskills and the 76er at Grandview.
Dan Harpell previews tonight’s Seneca Lake Shootout at Yates County Speedway in Dundee.

Another big race weekend is upon us and I’ll be on the road to Fonda tonight for the ESS race. Plus they have a pair of rained out races from the Night of Features on tap as well so I hope to see you there or at your favorite event this weekend as the season continues to wind down.

We’ve got three nice interviews on the site today that I hope you will listen to. One of with a now five time champion and the other is with one of the best young talents in Modified racing right now. Plus Anthony gives us some big news on his big plans for 2015 that will include a new race home. What is it? I’ll make you listen to find out…

Now let’s talk in more detail about the three chats we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page. I start with a driver who can win a title without even starting the final race in his series. Steve Poirier talks about winning the ESS Championship and how to get around Fonda Speedway. He told me how tough it is to get around both ends perfectly, recaps his race weekend at Ohsweken and why that 5th place felt better than his 3rd at The Cole Cup.  

Anthony Perrego runs down his hopes for the King of the Catskills and the 76er at Grandview. He told me about his pair of top five finishes last weekend, where he will race in the next two months and looks ahead to a new challenge for 2015. Big news here!!!  

Dan Harpell previews tonight’s Seneca Lake Shootout at Yates County Speedway in Dundee. He ran down specifics for each of the four divisions, told me some of the Modified drivers who are coming and looked ahead to the season finale at the track on late October.

Joey Ladouceur talks about his championship on asphalt and his sportsman races this weekend.
Mark Weaver gets ready for the Skyline finale and explains why he likes his racetrack so much.
 
We’re back with a couple more chats today as we get closer to the weekend. There is a lot going on this weekend and we’ll talk about one of those tracks that will wrap things up this weekend.
 
Plus we’ll see what it is like for a dirt guy when he switches to asphalt for a new challenge and how the laps he ran at some particular dirt tracks has helped him not just do well, but win.
 
I’ll be in the studio this afternoon and early evening as I need to get at least two more interviews done. If you know someone who would like to get on or maybe it is you, just send me a message at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com or message me on facebook.
 
Now let’s chat more about the two offerings we have on the Audio Page for you to check out today. Joey Ladouceur talks about his championship on asphalt and his sportsman races this weekend. He told me how he adjusted to the new surface, how he did in his one road course start and which dirt experiences helped him make the transition so quickly. 
 
Mark Weaver gets ready for the Skyline finale and explains why he likes his racetrack so much. He told me what makes the place different from the rest, how close he has come to winning there and looks over the pros& cons of returning for another season in 2015.

Bobby Varin talks about winning a Modified championship at Glen Ridge with a feature win.
Jim Bogett runs down the TUSA rules changes for next year in the Mod Lites and what it means.
Matt DeLorenzo previews the three day Mohawk Valley Weekend starting Friday at Fonda. 
 
It was a nice, fall like day on Tuesday and I got to get out for a while and do some work in the studio after a day off for a golf tournament on Monday. No, I did not set the golfing world on it’s ear but we had several good shots. I got two birdies in a row for the first time ever but we also lost a few balls too. Golf can be that was but it was a great time!
 
On the website today we have a pair of interviews. One is with a driver who won yet another championship and the other is an informational piece for Mod Lite racers. We get very specific in the Jim Bogett interview and hopefully it helps all the teams out there who had questions. If we missed some things, let me know and I’ll get back with Jim and get it done.
 
Plus we look ahead to the big weekend at Fonda Speedway and get you lots of specifics on what happens on each of the three big days. And I plan on seeing you guys there on Friday. 
 
We’ll be back in the studio again today and all week long as we are tied up on Saturday and Sunday this week. But we’ll get a lot done between now and then. And we’re looking for thoughts and drivers to chat with so send me anything you’d like at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com or message me on facebook.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we do have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page. I start with a driver who had a winning weekend. Bobby Varin talks about winning a Modified championship at Glen Ridge with a feature win. He told me how fast his racecar was on that night, where he’ll be racing the next few weekends and recalled his one race in a Micro Sprint that ended in a trip to victory lane. 
 
Jim Bogett runs down the TUSA rules changes for next year in the Mod Lites and what it means. He compared the two engine options that are available for teams to run now, breaks it down into dollars and reminds teams that he has new & used cars available right now for teams looking to upgrade their equipment. 
 
Matt DeLorenzo previews the three day Mohawk Valley Weekend starting Friday at Fonda. He told me why he changed the name of the event, ran down the specifics for all three days and told me when he will race in the next few weeks starting with Sunday’s Super DIRTcar Series event.

There are some good shows today as Oswego Speedway has a lot going on and Thunder Mountain is running the Wade Decker Memorial. Both tracks should have huge fields so each should put on a great show for you guys.
 
Now let’s talk about the pair of interviews I have for you to listen to on the Audio Page.
