Tyler Bushey talked about winning DIRTcar Pro Stock series race in Brockville in just his ninth start.
T.J. Buffenbarger offered an outsider’s take on Super DIRT Week and spoke about tjslideways.com.

We welcome two new people to the website today to get our week started after what turned out to be a very busy weekend. Allie and I went to the NYS Fairgrounds yesterday planning to stay less than an hour but had so much fun we stayed till the end hanging out with the Syracuse Microd Club.

It was great seeing everyone and seeing the new young racers who just joined the club this past season. These young people put on quite a show before the parents and grandparents squeezed themselves into the cars for the tradition season ending race. Fortunately it went well and I’ll have the winner from that race up soon.

I have a whole bunch of work to do today and I’ll be starting that this afternoon and run into the night. My leg is doing better as a rigorous stretching routine the past few days has really helped. Keep your fingers crossed and hopefully soon I’ll be back bowling and having fun like I’ve done for so many years.

Now let’s chat more about what is new for today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who shocked everyone in the Pro Stock world on Friday night with his big win. Tyler Bushey talked about winning DIRTcar Pro Stock series race in Brockville in just his ninth start in the division, explained how some data from his Street Stock helped and recapped his racing background. 

T.J. Buffenbarger offered an outsider’s take on Super DIRT Week as he attended & reported on the event for the first time, shared some of his observations on NE dirt racing and spoke about his website www.tjslideways.com. Good one here!

It was a nice day on Saturday and we got a lot done. It was a bit colder than it looked as I headed out without a jacket before turning back around and getting one as I did some running around.

We have new neighbors and I got to meet two of them yesterday. Nice folks. Happy to have them on the street. And more are coming as our block is in transition with some of the original owners moving out and others taking their place.

I got some work done before dinner and set up a few things for today as well so be sure to come back tomorrow. Plus we hope to get ahold of more people who raced this weekend and start the season in review chats. I came up with a few new questions but am always looking for more so please send me your suggestions.

Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page for today starting with a champion who earned that title on Friday night in Canada. C.D. Beauchamp talked about winning the DIRTcar Pro Stock Series championship with his 6th at Brockville, how much this means to him and remembers how he came from the back to 13th at Super DIRT Week.
