   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Kevin Albert spoke about his hopes for his first trip to Volusia and his 2013 season at Big Diamond.
Billy Pauch recaps his races at Atlantic City and looks forward to races in Trenton and Volusia.
 
Things got back to normal on Thursday as the snow was cleared and people felt a lot better driving on the roads. The snow piles are getting pretty big here and we hope everything worked out well for you as we braved another winter storm.
 
On the site today we have two drivers who will be racing very soon. One will go tonight at a new venue while the other is still getting ready for a Florida trip. Well, actually both are.
 
I enjoyed a somewhat day off on Thursday but you guys know me, I usually get bored an get some work done and yesterday was no exception as I spoke with Billy after a decent night on the lanes. Oh well. I guess there are bigger problems to have huh?
 
Now let’s talk about the two travelers I have on the Audio Page for you to listen to today. Kevin Albert spoke about his hopes for his first trip to Volusia and his 2013 season at Big Diamond. He told me what his big goal is for the DIRTcar Nationals, how he felt in his first laps in a big block at Syracuse and his plans to travel a bit more in 2014.
 
Billy Pauch recaps his races at Atlantic City and looks forward to races in Trenton and Volusia. He told me about some handling issues two weeks ago, how a sponsor stepping up is going to help get him to Florida and remembers his brief career in the truck series on asphalt. Excellent chat here!

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Joe Skotnicki gets ready for Volusia and looks forward to what could be a big year for DIRTcar.
Tim Trimble remembers his three win season at Georgetown and his move to Delaware this year.
 
What a fun day it was on Wednesday huh? Well at least I hope it was for you. I love the snow and we got a lot of it. I don’t know how much you picked up but we got close to a foot. It took two trips with the snowblower and I went out and about with my car three times to have some fun.
 
I also got a lot of work done as I did three new interviews. I chatted with Joe Skotnicki first and then Jami Russell and Kevin Albert. Jami just got back from a trip to Australia and Kevin is getting ready for his first trip to Volusia which will also be his first big block Modified races as well. So be sure to stop back for that.
 
I have today off and hope do a little bit better a bowling tonight than I did last time out two weeks ago. That last time the emotions hit me a little hard and I was unable to concentrate as I fought back tears while thinking about mom. She always rooted me on with my bowling and the week before was when she got sick…right while we were bowling. So I guess I shouldn’t be that shocked that it hit me when it did huh?
 
But enough about that, let’s talk more now about the new stuff on the Audio Page for you to listen to today. Joe Skotnicki gets ready for Volusia and looks forward to what could be a big year for DIRTcar. He told me why he feels teams make the long trip south for the DIRTcar Nationals, how tight the racing community is now and why he still has to be on his toes even though things look rosy from the outside.
 
Tim Trimble remembers his three win season at Georgetown and his move to Delaware this year. He talked about his plans to run for points this year, how his shop work is coming along as he gets ready and one big change at the track in the area of tires. Interesting…

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Neal Williams recaps his races at Atlantic City and looks forward to Trenton and Volusia.
Larry Bishop talks about Dig Safely New York, how it came to be and why racing works for them.
 
Today could be a fun day for some and a terrible day for others as a storm is heading our way. They are saying between 6-12 inches of snow could fall so it won’t be that bad for us snow savvy folks in Lake Effect Country but it may be enough to run over our allocated snow days. Yep, the kids will be hoping for a day off today alright.
 
 I’ll be doing some driving with my new snows from Kinney Kar Kare and my rims from Benwood Auto Parts. Call them yourself and you can look forward to snow like I do!
 
I got busy yesterday as I recorded three new conversations for the website. I put two of those up and tomorrow you’ll hear from Easton’s Racing Barber Tim Trimble as he gets ready to run for points at Delaware.
 
On the site today we have a driver who has been very busy and will continue that trend this weekend with a trip to a new indoor event in Trenton, New Jersey. And he’ll be heading to Florida soon as well.
 
Plus we’ll learn more about a business that has sponsored racing at multiple tracks and also sponsors this website. Thanks to these guys, all you have to do is call 811 on your phone before you dig to make sure all is well. No more looking through phone books trying to talk to the various agencies, one call to 811 does it all. And now you’ll hear how it happened.
 
But first, let’s talk more about the first interview I have up for you on the Audio Page. I begin with a young driver with a bright future. Neal Williams recaps his races at Atlantic City and looks forward to Trenton and Volusia. He told me how good he was initially at the indoor show, how tight this type of racing can be and how much more comfortable he will be this year with a big block at the big track in Florida. 
 
Larry Bishop talks about Dig Safely New York, how it came to be and why racing works for them. He explained why he thought that the racing world would be a great way to get the word out, how easy it is to find out what is underground where you are and the places they will be this year to help spread the word.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Logan Schuchart talks about his races in Florida later this week and his hopes to with The Outlaws.
Charlie Donk told meabout the brand new Sprint Car he has and runs down his plans to stay local.
 
I got back to work on Monday after being sick for a few days. I am winding down the cold and now have the cough so thank goodness I was able to shut my voice off at times during the interviews that you’ll hear today.
 
As you can see we went with a theme today and talked to a pair of Sprint Car drivers. One drives a 410 and has plans to test himself against the best in the business while the other is hoping to have a great season in a brand new car.
 
I would have gotten more done but my car broke down after dinner and I lost an hour waiting for the two truck to come. I had my kids with me too so thank goodness for AAA. Dad came and picked them while I waited for the truck. Let’s hope this does not break the bank here as we were just starting to get ahead. Welcome to the world we live in today.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page. I begin with a driver with big plans. Logan Schuchart talks about his races in Florida starting this week and his hopes to with The Outlaws. He told me about the intense competition he will see at Ocala and Volusia, why he likes starting with the same car he finished with last year and some tracks he is looking forward to seeing for the first time. 
 
Charlie Donk told meabout the brand new Sprint Car he has and runs down his plans to stay local. He talked about his new motor builder, why he wants to focus on 360 races this year and reminds fans to check him out at Motorsports Expo 2014 in Syracuse in March. 

 
Monday, February 3rd 2014
   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Scott Kreutter tells me how he lost the Patriot Sprint Tout title and how he did in Atlantic City.
 
We’re back on a Monday with another new conversation with one of the area’s top Sprint Car drivers who came ever so close to another championship. You’ll be surprised at the way things happened for him as he just lost the lead at the wrong time.
 
I am going to be in the studio a lot today and will be writing up another new article for the Syracuse Post Standard. I hope you all had a great day on Sunday and are ready for another work week. I think I am.
 
As I told you yesterday, I had a busier than usual weekend and was unable to do my usual workload of interviews with the SU game and the Super Bowl taking up people’s time.
 
Now let’s chat more about the interview we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page for today. Scott Kreutter tells me how he lost the Patriot Sprint Tout title and how he did in Atlantic City. He explained how two cancellations prevented him from getting the opportunity to retake the lead, how sore he was after some races last year and why he feels Sprint Car racing continues to grow in popularity. 

 
Sunday, February 2nd 2014
   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Adam Roberts recapped his 2013 season and told me how some motor issues kept them out at times.
 
What a busy weekend it turned out to be. So busy I was unable to get anything done on Saturday. So we split the two interviews I did on Friday and put them up one at a time. I will be back in the studio today so look for new stuff from Monday to come up on Tuesday.
 
But we still have a chat with Sprint Car racer Scott Kreutter tomorrow as he’ll tell us how he lost the PST title in the final race although at the time nobody knew it would be the final race. That’s a tough one huh?
 
As I write this up I am getting ready to head to the store for our Super Bowl items that we’ll need tomorrow. Dad and Webmaster Andy will be over and I am just hoping for a good game as I really don’t have a rooting interest in either team. Sometimes it is more fun to watch that way.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page on this Super Sunday. Adam Roberts recapped his 2013 season and told me how some motor issues kept them out at times. He talked about one really good weekend that saw him earn back to back 6th place finishes, what he learned that helped with sail panel racing and what his plans are for 2014. 

 
Saturday, February 1st 2014
   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Brian Swartzlander talks about his six win season and his start in racing in a claimer class.
Ernie Saxton explains why he is retiring from his duties at Grandview after a 47 year career.
 
I could not believe how warm it was on Friday as we got over 30 degrees. I felt like unzipping my jacket as it was so nice. You know it has been brutal with 30 feels warm.
 
We have a couple of real nice conversations for you today including one with the driver who had the most listened to interview of 2013. Brian Swartzlander is a veteran Modified racer from Pennsylvania and he was in the top five for three months last year. Enjoy his chat.
 
And Ernie Saxton is saying goodbye to Grandview after 47 years. Imagine the memories this guy has from that place. Wow. We’ll miss Ernie but he will still be around and writing for AARN as well as many other publications.
 
Now let’s go into more detail on what we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page for today. Brian Swartzlander talks about his six win season and his start in racing in a claimer class. He told me how being light on the scales after an opening night win set him back, how much better they ran at the midway point of the season and how he has enjoyed racing a Late Model these past few years.
 
Ernie Saxton explains why he is retiring from his duties at Grandview after a 47 year career. He told me the moment when he realized he had to do it, what he’ll miss the most and describes what he will be doing with his life now. Yeah, we’ll still hear from Ernie and we wish you nothing but the best.
