New on the Audio Page for today:

Doug Manmiller talks about a change at the end of 2016 and how that led to a ride for 2017.
Scott Kreutter recapped his top six at Atlantic City and what slowed him down in the final laps.

I only had a small window to get website work done on Wednesday and thankfully the two people you see up here today were nice enough to give me some of their time between 6-6:45 p.m. I’ll have more time today and I need to get ahead and get four interviews done as I have another ride along set for Friday.

So racers if you are gonna have some time today make sure to give me a call and we’ll get you on. Send me a message at doug@dirtdiary.com or message me on facebook. Either way I’ll be sure to work you into the mix today.

Now let’s chat more about what I have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a veteran racer who finished the 2016 season strong. Doug Manmiller talks about a change at the end of 2016, how that change led to a ride for 2017 and how things went for him in weekly competition at Grandview.  

Scott Kreutter recapped his top six finish last Saturday at Atlantic City, explained what slowed him down in the final laps and tells me about his hopes to run more in 2017.

Joe Trenca runs down his plan for 2017 and explains why he feels this is the year for a win.
Tony Veneziano previews this weekend’s All Star opener and gives us some more WoO news.

I was off from bowling last night as I give me knees a few extra days before Sunday’s big tournament. It’s a bit of a risk as I sure would like to practice but I am hoping being on fresh knees trumps that and I can still have a good day on Sunday.

I got a little bit ahead and the interviews you see up today were recorded on Monday. I also needed to get a little ahead as my youngest had a concert on Tuesday night. That’s right, they’re both very musical like my wife. Hey, instruments are still a heck of a lot cheaper than racecars and you can’t wreck them and be left with scrap metal. I am totally okay with this!

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we get over the hump this Wednesday. Joe Trenca runs down his plan for 2017 that begin in March and explains why he feels this is the year for him to get his first win while remembering a night he came close last season.

Tony Veneziano previews this weekend’s All Star opener in Ocala, Florida, gives us some more WoO news and wraps up the big races from Australia as the Americans come back to the states.

Stacy Jackson explains why he is getting back into 358 racing and his hopes to follow a series.
Todd Burgess describes the IMCA Hobby Stock he is building and their addition to Outlaw Speedway.

Another Tuesday is upon us and I am looking forward to a fun day. I have the Post Standard Masters Bowling tournament this Sunday so to be good to my aching knees I am taking tonight off from bowling. Sure I’d benefit from some extra frames but I believe I’d benefit more from having fresh knees on Sunday.

I have some good stuff up for you again and both are really good chats. The new IMCA Hobby Stock class at Outlaw Speedway will be interesting to follow and I can’t wait to see what these cars look like and how they race.

Tonight I will be online racing as is my usual on Tuesday and if any of you racers wanna check that out just say so and we can set a time for you to try it. Most of my friends can’t do it and get frustrated very quickly so if you have patience and good eye/hand coordination you’ll be fine.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for you to listen to as you go about your day. Stacy Jackson explains why he is getting back into 358 racing for 2007, how he did in 2006 and his hopes to possibly follow the Sportsman Super DIRTcar series.

Todd Burgess describes the IMCA Hobby Stock he is building for his daughter, explains how the class came to be at Outlaw Speedway and when he first saw the cars firsthand. If you’re looking for a new career listen to the end of this chat as what Todd does might be just right for you.

Beau Ballard talks about his 2016 season and his plans to explore more tracks in 2017.
Steve Gwinn describes his role as crew chief and his plans to run at Crate Late Model in NY.

We’ve got some good stuff up for you today as we get another work week started here on Doug’s Dirt Diary. Give both of these a listen as I know you’ll like it. And if you wondered what an outsider who comes to our part of the world thinks about our form of racing give the Steve Gwinn chat a listen. And yeah, I love his accent too.

I’m thinking about making some big changes here on the website and am hoping to talk to some website professionals about a total re-design of the site. If you know someone or work with people who know these types of things please message me at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com.

Now let’s chat more about what you can listen to on the Audio Page for today starting with a driver who is riding those good feelings from his late season win all off season long. Beau Ballard talks about his 2016 season including his late season Empire Series IMCA win at Five Mile Point and his plans to explore more tracks in 2017.  

Steve Gwinn describes his role as crew chief for Sportsman racer Pat LaPage, his plans to run at Crate Late Model in New York and compares racing up here to what he knows back in Georgia.

Earl Rudy talks about last season in a Sportsman and looks ahead to the start of this season.
Adam DelGrosso recaps his rough season in 2016 and talks about the new car he is building.

It is Super Bowl Sunday and today promises to be a fun day. I am having a few people over for the game and am looking forward to it. I just hope it is an entertaining game as I really don’t have a rooting interest in either team.

We’re back with ore good stuff today as we get closer and closer to the racing season. Lots of work is going at race shops all over in anticipation of the start of the season so we wish all you hard working race people all the best as you sweat in your shops.

Tim McCreadie talks about his new deal for 2017, his recent test session and the Chili Bowl.
Nick Guererri tells me about his family’s race party next weekend some changes for 2017.

I had a fun day as I got in some bowling practice in the morning, did some work in the studio and finished things out with a dinner with my wife Camille as we ate at the local Outback Steakhouse. I ran into a racer friend there too and I’ll be interviewing him today.

In less than a week it will be race time as things start in Florida and Georgia. Sprints start up in Florida while the Late Models kick things off this Friday and Saturday. It is an exciting time as teams have been working for months to get ready. Soon they’ll know what they have for the 2017 season.

One driver who is excited and ready for the season gets us started on the Audio Page today. Tim McCreadie talks about his new deal for 2017 as a House Car driver for Longhorn Chassis, his recent test sessions in Florida and his b-main finish in the Chili Bowl. Real good one here!  

Nick Guererri tells me about his family’s race party next Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Seneca Fall Elks Club, some changes for 2017 and how happy he is to see a change in the Sportsman SDS.

Kevin Bolland recapped his one win season and talked about his hopes for a new Modified.
Marc Minutolo talked about his race party tomorrow and his Pure Stock Championship.

I had a busy day and a late day on Thursday as I did interviews till just before 11 p.m. as I was able to catch some people who were up late. I got lucky and was able to do four interviews as I had hoped as I need to be ahead for this weekend. People will be busy watching a big football game on Sunday so I need to be able to get ahead so I don’t have to bug anyone before the game.

I had a doctor’s appointment in Auburn (Where I lived for a while, went to college twice and met my wife Camille.) so I made sure to do some driving around town to see what had changed. I also stopped by to see a good friend of mine who I had not seen in several years. He was one of my video game buddies and one heck of a driver on the track back in the day but never got that win. I called a race where they ate him up in the final corner of the last lap going three wide on either side of him as he tried to hold on for his first win. He never had the car or power the big dogs had but he was quite a wheelman back in the 90’s. Good to see you Kenny!

I’ll be very busy again today as I need to get a lot done. I’m going to practice spare shooting in the morning and then I’ll be in the studio this afternoon and tonight. It will be a fun day.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a driver I had not chatted with in over six years. Kevin Bolland recapped his one win season and talked about his hopes for a new Modified as well as some of the advantages to building your own engines. Nice to talk with you Kevin it had been too long!  

Marc Minutolo talked about his race party tomorrow (Saturday) at 6 p.m. inside the Newark VFW, his Pure Stock Championship at Canandaigua and his hopes to see some growth in the class in 2017.
