I had a nice day but a slow as I stayed up way too late on Thursday night as a friend I had not seen in quite sometime stopped in. We stayed up late racing and playing strat-o-matic baseball and had a great time. But I had quite the headache when I woke up. Oops!
 
I have a fun day on tap for today as I begin my day at the NYS Fairgrounds at clean up day for the Syracuse Microd and Quarter Midget Club. Then I’m off to Vernon for Kyle DeMetro’s race party at the Utica Rome Speedway Club. Ton the way back I stop by a friend’s house as he is nice to enough to give us some money for Allie’s racing. Thank you so much Scotty!
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who has a party of his own set for today.

If you are not facebook friends with me shoot me a message and as long as there is racing on your page somewhere I’ll okay your request.
 
I got back a little later than I originally planned as I just love to talk racing but was fortunate enough to get two people on for you today so a big thanks to both of the drivers you see up today. I’ll be back at it again today and I’ll be hoping to get a little ahead as I have a busy weekend planned.

Ernie Saxton previews Saturday’s opener at Grandview and remembers his first day at the track.
Paul Cole explains why the Land of Legends practice was canceled and an issue they had yesterday.

We had an adventurous day on Wednesday and I know a lot of you did. We had a tree fall on power lines just two houses down from us. Our power never went out but it flickered and dimmed several times. Let’s hope we dodge a bullet the rest of the night too. Hoping you all did too!
 
I hustled in the studio on Wednesday and during the Ernie Saxton interview I thought we were going to lose power on three separate occasions. I kept going fast to make sure I got all this done before something happened. Fortunately everything worked out and here we are hoping for a less action filled day today.

I’ve got a nice week ahead of me and am ready to get back in the studio today and get more new stuff for you guys to listen to.

What a nice day it was on Saturday. As I look out my studio window I see sunshine and 54 degrees on what has been one of the nicest days so far. It was nice.
 
I hope you all have a great Easter Sunday, for those of you who celebrate it, and I hope today will be a day filled with family and fun. We are making a turkey as we always say we’ll make one some other time of the year besides Thanksgiving and this year we are.

I have two nice conversations up for you today and will be back tomorrow with more before we get back in the studio on Monday to get you some more. Again, we hope you guys have a great day today.
