New on the Audio Page for today:
Joe Trenca talks about getting ready to race Williams Grove and Port Royal this weekend.
Joe “Geezer” Fanelli tells me about his move to Modified and Saturday’s opener at Grandview.
Brad Szulewski spoke about his winning season as a Modified rookie and Sunday at 5 Mile Point.
It was a fun day for me as I got to head to a local race shop to see how they fixed an issue they had the night before and did some interviews in the studio as well. Plus Allie and I went to Pole Position Raceway in Syracuse with a purpose in mind.
I wanted Allie to try her new helmet and shoes to see how they fit and get used to them. I also wanted her back in the seat again to see how she reacted. Now I know a lot of you have been to Pole Position before and those carts are fast and can give you headaches. She wished she did better of course and was very frustrated afterwards.
The positives were that she certainly wasn’t intimidated and was over driving at times. So I know she’s not scared. But being smooth takes time and it was just her second time behind the wheel. By the time we got halfway home she said she had fun and it led to a nice talk about keeping your emotions in check on race day just like every single one of us does…right? Well sometimes I guess. But all in all it was just what she needed leading up to Sunday’s practice.
Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page as we give you three chats on a Friday ahead of a busy weekend. Joe Trenca talks about getting ready to race Williams Grove and Port Royal this weekend while describing how they tracked down a problem they had when they tried to start the Sprinter.
Joe “Geezer” Fanelli tells me about his move to Modified, his hopes for Saturday’s opener at Grandview and how he got the nickname Geezer at the age of 43. Have fun Joe!
Brad Szulewski spoke about winning a feature race in his first season in a Modified rookie, describes some of the “stupid things that happened” last year and looks ahead to Sunday at 5 Mile Point.
