Shawn Kirby won his third in a row in the Pro Street feature and spoke about his last lap move.

Allie and I had a great time last night as we headed north to another one of my old stomping grounds...Can Am. I worked there for a few years back in the early 2000’s when I was having a lot of sinus and inner ear issues. I knew that I never really gave it my all in those years because of those health issues and always felt badly about it. So really…sorry guys!

And despite a cold that came on overnight I was able to have some fun and talk to some people that I had not talked to in a while. The track itself was nice and the night moved along quickly. We were out before it was totally dark and saw some really entertaining races with lots of late race action.

Jim Olin was behind the mic and I really hear a lot of improvement from him as he continues to learn as an announcer. They’re very fortunate to have him as well as many other long time employees that just love Can Am and racing. It’s a really nice scene!

I’ve got a lot of post heat and post feature interviews and was able to can 12 of those for release later in the week. Plus some confusion on our golf game has given me this afternoon off so I will be able to get there nice and early and load up today as the ESS visits Utica Rome. Maybe ‘ll see you there!

Bill Shea talks about Utica Rome’s Sunday show with the ESS and some recent track prep.
Rob Hazer previews Sunday’s KOD Sportsman opener at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Vermont.

Another rainy day kept most race teams home on Friday as the 2017 season continues its’s soggy start. The good news is that the rest of the weekend is looking better including Sunday as the rain is now set to come in well after we get done at Utica Rome and Devil’s Bowl. Yay!

I got a few interviews done before heading out to do some fun things with the family. We’ll be at Can Am today and then Utica Rome Sunday after an afternoon golf tourney. Let’s hope for back to back fun days as we get closer to summer.

Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page for you today as we hope for a busy day of racing on Saturday. Bill Shea talks about Utica Rome’s Sunday show with the ESS joining to make it a four division show and some recent track prep he has done to smooth out the surface.    

Rob Hazer previews Sunday’s KOD Sportsman opener at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Vermont and talks about his new expanded role as well as how he determines the starting field.

Rocky Warner talks about his Tuesday win at Can Am as well as his win at Fonda and 3rd at Malta.
Nick Krause described how the visor he put on his wind screen fell down and blocked his vision.

I had a nice day as I got some work done and finished off my day listening to Allie and her fellow musicians in their latest string concert. Allie and her quartet actually entertained at the break too so once again I am one proud papa.

I’m making my plans for the weekend and since I don’t have to get up early either day I am going to hit the road to see some racing at tracks I have not been to yet this year. We’re going to Skyline on Friday and Can Am on Saturday. Once again the weather looks iffy for Sunday but I am optimistic and hoping to go to Utica Rome for Mods and the ESS. Let’s hope for dry weather so we can have fun all three nights.

I’m supposed to golf this afternoon but that does not look good as we have a 90% chance of rain. But hat should get out of here by Friday morning so hopefully it won’t be too much to wash out Friday night’s action. We hope!

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with some drivers who are fresh off a trip to victory lane. Danny O’Brien tells me how he won the caution free Brockville Modified opener after spinning on his opening lap in his heat race and talked about his top ten at Mohawk International.

I had my usual semi-day off on Tuesday but did get some work done in the studio as the can is not very full right now. We still have a few things from the weekend but need to fill it back up again.

We are still working on our plans for the coming weekend and hope to have them solidified soon. I need to get on the road at least once and I’ll figure that out by tomorrow although it does look like weather could be an issue again. Where are you summer?

Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page for today starting with a very busy driver who is driving three different racecars this season. Stewart Friesen talks about his Modified feature win at Fonda on Saturday, his hopes for Sunday with the World of Outlaws and his NASCAR Camping World truck races.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Dave Blaney got ready for his fourth race of the season and talked about being at Weedsport.
Kraig Kinser spoke about his season so far with the Outlaws and the competition in Pennsylvania.
Paulie Colagiovanni prepared for his first laps in a 410 Sprinter and talked about his hopes.
Ronnie Davis III recapped his weekend that included a Sportsman feature win at Fulton Speedway.

What a bummer! I was hoping to get in another race today but Mother Nature had other ideas. After heavy overnight rains Weedsport Speedway was forced to cancel their Monday show with the Super DIRTcar Series on the schedule.

That’s too bad for a number of reasons first of which was that I was ready for another show. And secondly Allie was going to sing the national anthems. I’m hoping we can reschedule her to do that as I can’t wait for her to see this track.

There is racing tonight up at Can Am as they have a big four division show on tap with the GRIT Sportsman Series headlining the show there. They have a lot on the card for a mid week so you’ll get your money’s worth for sure.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page as we give you some chats from Sunday in Weedsport. Dave Blaney got ready for his fourth race of the season and talked about being back at Weedsport after a weekend at Williams Grove and described what it is like coming back from a concussion.  

Kraig Kinser spoke about his season so far with the Outlaws, the high level of competition in Pennsylvania and the realities of being on the road with the most grueling racing series on the planet.  

Paulie Colagiovanni prepared for his first laps in a 410 Sprinter as the Outlaws visited Weedsport and talked about his hopes as well as his race Friday night at Outlaw Speedway.

Donny Schatz was 11th in time trials despite a tough draw and talked about his hopes to stay dry.
Brad Sweet set fast time with the Outlaws and talked about how his early pill draw helped.

Paul McMahan came into Weedsport 12th with the WoO and told me about some team changes.
Tony Veneziano recaps the World of Outlaws races at Lincoln Speedway and Williams Grove.

We had some fun for a little while last night in Weedsport as the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series rolled into town. There were some sprinkles early in the night but we powered through it until right before heat number three when it picked up.

A car had spun and lost power and while they were picking it up the cars in heat three waited and the track got wetter. They pushed of heat number three and then directed them back to the pits and that was it.

The track waited until the rain really picked up and as I type this up an hour and half later the radar shows that it is still coming down in Weedsport. There was a small window between the big green blob and the next bout of precipitation but there was no way they were getting this one in.  

That show has been rescheduled for October 15th and that will be an entirely new show so anything that did happen in time trials or the heats now goes away. Today’s Super DIRTcar Series race is still a go and we’ll be there to do some TV as we were set to do last night. Allie will be singing the national anthems and I can’t wait to hear her. I’m so proud!

So we hope to see you later today and I hope you like the clips we have on the Audio Page all recorded yesterday either at the track or here in the home studio. Jason Johnson talked about his fast time in hot laps, his 7th place in time trials in Weedsport and what he thought of New York State before he visited it.  

Donny Schatz was 11th in time trials with the World of Outlaws despite a tough draw and talked about his hopes to stay dry as well as how he feels about how his car handled.    

Brad Sweet set fast time with the Outlaws and talked about how his early pill draw helped as well as how he did down at Williams Grove Friday and Saturday.  

Brent Marks spoke about being a rookie with the WoO and described how things are going so far as well as why he was really hoping that the rain would hold off after a good start in Weedsport.  

Clyde Knipp explained how he ended up with a WoO ride after just one year in a 360 Sprinter back in Missouri and described what his car owner saw in him before they hit the road.  

Sheldon Haudenschild is the best running rookie so far with the World of Outlaws and talked about where he can improve as well as how much he communicates with his father.

Daryn Pittman was fresh off a good run on Saturday with a second place at Williams Grove and talked about his hopes for Tuesday as he will try for his fifth win in a row at New Egypt.

Paul McMahan came into Weedsport 12th with the WoO and told me about some off season team changes as well as why he was also hoping the rain would hold off.
