It was an interesting day on Wednesday as I had a lot of non-racing stuff to do and fortunately the roads here were not too bad after the threat of ice was ever present. I got to work a little later in the day and both of the chats I did are up for you today.
 
I share some memories with an old friend and find out about a new deal where you can watch race videos both old and new and get a special deal by using the code listed below. It is well worth it guys and there is a ton of videos on raceflix and more are being added every day. Give it a try and I know you’ll like it!

Jordan Poirier spoke about his Lightning Sprint Championship and his 360 Sprint win at Fulton.
Kinser Hill recaps his season in a Sportsman at Afton and the two cars he’ll race this season.

I had a nice day off on Tuesday as we bowled one of the best scratch bowling teams in the league and I got to get into the book I have been waiting for in the mail. I’ll be back in the studio again tomorrow and will be sure to have some cool stuff up for you guys.
 
We’re looking for a local race shop to go to Allie and I hope to learn more about the type of cars she will be driving this summer. Please message us guys as we have so much to learn and so little time. Plus there are a few specific things we each need to be able to do so please message us and in turn we’ll help you out as much as we can.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a young man who pulled off a surprising win during ESS Speedweeks last year that had everyone saying, “Who?” Jordan Poirier spoke about his Lightning Sprint Championship, his 360 Sprint win with the ESS at Fulton and his plans to split his time in each division here in 2019.  
 
Kinser Hill recaps his season in a Sportsman at Afton, describes the two cars he’ll race this season and a nagging fuel delivery issue that took week to hunt down and fix. Oh man!

Danny Creeden runs down his plans for the 2019 race season that include around seventy starts.
Tony Veneziano reports on the All Stars at Bubba Raceway Park and offers a World of Outlaw preview.
 
What a day it was on Monday as we topped out at over 60 degrees. We got to get outside and do a few things and Allie even got so shoot some baskets outside for the first time this year. It was a fun day.
 
I got my work done nice and early and will be able to take today off. I was supposed to be off from bowling but dad is sick with a cold and needs to take a week off. Plus a book that I was expecting finally came on Monday and now I have some extra time to pour myself in it with a goal of finishing it by the week.  
 
This book will help me with my writing as I try to take it up a notch. It’s amazing that I made six figures worth of income writing without any formal instruction except 100 and 200 level English courses. It’s time to fix that and get moving with the next phase of my life. Wish me well.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page for you today starting with a driver who just got over a bit of an illness. Danny Creeden runs down his plans for the 2019 race season that include around seventy starts, tells me how his racecars look right now and the tough luck he had last year.

Paulie Colagiovanni talked about the new Sprint Car on its way to his shop and his 2019 race plans.
 
What a nice day it was on Sunday as we got over 50 degrees here in Central New York. The snow was melting, blacktop is now visible in the driveway and hopefully the quick snow melt will not create any extra problems on top of what we dealt with last week.
 
I’m getting ready to watch the big game with my family and we’re just hoping for a good game that the refs don’t screw up with their calls. It’s been a rough couple of weeks for the NFL as they surely have some serious off season issues to address that won’t be easy to fix…that’s for sure.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today starting with a driver who is feeling pretty good about life right about now. Brett Tonkin told me how his off season is going after getting married in the fall, how things are looking in his race shop right now and what he has on tap for this season.

Josh Pieniazek recaps his sixteen race season in a Sprint Car andhis one win in a 305 Sprinter.
Eric Kingsley tells me about racing 358’s with his son this season and shares some racing memories.

What a nice day it was on Saturday. No, the sun was not out and no, it was not 60 degrees but it was above freezing and it felt like a summer day to us. We’re hoping this warmer weather does not create another set of problems so we’re keeping our fingers crossed for all of you.
 
I’ll be back working again today before the big New England win later today (I’m hoping not but you know…) and I’ll have more for you tomorrow. Plus I’ll be back at it again on Monday as well so don’t miss a day or you never know what you’ll miss out on.
 
As I type this up I am getting ready to watch a must win game for SU basketball as they hope to make it to the NCAA tourney. In between interviews all we have been watching is hoops as Allie is now a full time off season basketball junkie. Hey, there is worse things she could be into. That’s for sure!

Josh Reome tells me what it is like on the North Country right now and how his Sportsman looks.

It was a nice day here on Friday as the sun came out and warmed us up to the mid teens by afternoon. It might not sound that nice but after wind chills in the -20 to -30 range it felt downright balmy.
 
I spent the day in the studio and with family as I am trying to get ahead with a big football game on Sunday. I did get to where I wanted to be and will be back in the studio today hoping to get more done before the SU game at 6 p.m.

Lance Willix describes what it is like for plow drivers in The North Country in heavy lake effect snow.
Marc Mintuolo reminds us about his Race Party taking place tomorrow at 6 pm at the Newark VFW.

What a day it was on Thursday! I saw some of the video from up north as route 81 became a parking lot due to the heavy lake effect snow. And then throw in below zero temperatures and wind and you’ve got a real problem. We’re thinking about all of you and hoping the snow lets up and you can dig out. Thoughts and prayers to all of you.
 
I also thought about the truck drivers as I visited our local Wegmans on Thursday night. There were some areas where product was missing and I know the weather has everything to do with that. Imagine what it must be like being stuck in the snow in your truck. I’m sure a lot of those drivers would give anything right now for a hot shower and a hot plate of food. Wishing all of you all the best too.

Feeling fortunate down here for so many things and looking forward to what it gonna be a season like no other for me and my whole family. I can’t wait to get going and see where the next chapter of our lives takes us. It is sure to be a ride like no other.
 
Now let’s chat more about what is on the Audio Page starting with a report from behind the wheel of the plow in a big lake effect snowstorm from a driver we know well. Lance Willix describes what it is like for plow drivers in The North Country in heavy lake effect snow, walks me through his Thursday shift and explains why he has not been able to get much done in his race shop. We wish all of you in this snow band all the best!  
 
Marc Mintuolo reminds us about his Race Party taking place this Saturday at 6 pm at the Newark VFW, talks about some of the preparations and some work being done to his two racecars.
