New on the Audio Page for today:

Pat Ward gets ready to celebrate at the DIRTcar banquet and talked about the work at the shop.
Todd Burley tells me how he stays involved in racing with his business while resisting temptation.
Mike Button gets interviewed by Earl Rudy and they talk candidly about racing against each other.
Chris Hulsizer ran down how he did last year in limited action and his hopes to race more in 2016.
Paul Kirkland updated me on Brockville Ontario Speedway and the DIRTcar promoter’s meetings.

It’s banquet tine for Camille and I as we are heading out to the Utica Rome Speedway banquet at Turning Stone. And of course if the weather was 60 degrees or so I’d be looking to get in a quick 18 on one of their wonderful golf courses.

It is always fun to head to this venue for us as we have been going there for close to 20 years. We always went to the DIRT banquets in the Glenn Donnelly era and ALWAYS had a great time…probably too good when I stop and think about it but it was certainly legendary.

Be sure to look for stuff tomorrow from that banquet as I will stay up late tonight to get it for you. I’ll have news from the banquet plus as many drivers I can bet before they seat us.

Now let’s talk about what I have today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who runs at the track we will be celebrating tonight.
Pat Ward
gets ready to celebrate at the DIRTcar banquet and talked about the work he has looking at him at the shop and the comeback we are seeing at Fulton Speedway.  

Todd Burley tells me how he stays involved in racing with his business while resisting the temptation to spend tens of thousands of dollars to get back in the seat again. I’m just teasing Todd. I’m happy for you!  

Mike Button gets interviewed by Earl Rudy and they talk candidly about racing against each other. I love you drivers interview each other as the truth really comes out!!!  

Chris Hulsizer ran down how he did last year in limited action in the Sportsman division,   his hopes to race more in 2016 and what he can bring to a potential deal.

It’s a crazy day for a lot of people today as Black Friday is upon us. Shoppers looking for bargains will be on the loose today reminding me to stay as far away from the local malls as possible. And maybe certain areas like Route 31 near my house need to be avoided at all costs.

I hope your Thanksgiving Day was a good one and I hope you all are enjoying a day off today. And to my friends in Canada, sorry about all the lazy day off talk.

I’ll be busy today as I have along list of stuff to do here. This past weekend was great because it allows me the time to get stuff done without having to bother my racing buddies on what is usually one of the busiest stretches of the year.

I still have a lot of great stuff in the can and will be at the Utica Rome Speedway banquet tomorrow to get lots more. As much as I miss racing right now I love this time of the year as I get to catch up with folks and get a little pause to get the rest of our lives in order. You know what I mean!
