New on the Audio Page for today:

Joe Trenca gets ready for some 410 Sprint Car racing today and talks about his 2016 race plans.
In the latest Doug’s Thoughts I reflect back on the IROC Series and offer an idea for today.

I hope you enjoyed the nice weather on Friday because it is going to turn sometime today and it won’t be for the better. I was able to get out and have a little fun on Friday and get a little work done as well.

On the page I have a chat from Thursday night at the race shop of Joe Trenca and an interesting idea for a racing series that a friend and I have been tossing around. Give it a listen and let me know what you think. Of course the logistics of something like this in today’s racing world might be impossible but I think it’s a heck of an idea.

Today I will be back in the studio and recording as much as I can before the Final Four begins tonight. Still shocked that the boys and girls from SU have done as well as they have and who knows? Maybe we can have a pair of champions here in soon to be snowy again Syracuse. Go Orange!

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a man who is going to very busy this season. Joe Trenca gets ready for some 410 Sprint Car racing today and talks about his 2016 race plans while explaining why he will hit the road more to race in Sprint Car Country.

In the latest Doug’s Thoughts I reflect back on the IROC Series and offer an idea for today that I think could be a true test of a driver’s ability.

Ryan Susice tells me about his racing party Saturday at the Ransomville Fire House at 4 p.m.
Barry Angstadt previews Saturday’s No Wing Spring Fling at Lanco and looks ahead to Kutztown.   

It was another warm day on Thursday and thunderstorms woke us up in the morning. I just love spring time thunderstorms as it reminds us of the warm weather to come. But before we get there we may have one more bout of snow as they are predicting 3-5 inches in some parts of Central New York either Sunday or Monday. Darn.

As we’ve always said, you put races on the schedule in April around here in hopes that you can race and if you don’t you’re not out anything for trying. Hopefully the snow won’t be that bad, will melt fast and we’ll be at our favorite racetracks again soon.

Today I had hoped to get out and maybe hit a few golf balls but it does not look good there although we will hold out hope that we can still swing the clubs for the first time in 2016.

Now let’s talk some more about the good stuff we have for you today on the Audio Page as we get ready for the weekend. Ryan Susice tells me about his racing party Saturday at the Ransomville Fire House at 4 p.m., reflects on the success Ramsonville’s young racers have had indoors and runs down his plans for 2016.  

Barry Angstadt previews Saturday’s No Wing Spring Fling at Lanco, reminds teams of practice session earlier the same day and looks ahead to Kutztown’s opener on May 11th.

Dan Creeden gets ready for the Hard Clay Open at OCFS on Saturday and talks about his hopes.
Jim Bogett talks about his 1st Mod Lite race at Merrittville and his Firehouse Sub Store in Camillus.

  We had a fun day on Wednesday as we were able to get out and enjoy the great weather we had before things change over the weekend. We are still hopeful to get in some racing to our south and we’ll keep you posted on how things are going.

Today we have a man who has already been out and will be racing at the Orange County Fair Speedway opener this Saturday. Plus we look at the world of Mod Lites and tell you here in the Syracuse area how you can get a special deal at Firehouse Subs in Camillus right across from the old Camillus Mall. Tell them Doug’s Dirt Diary sent you and get a special deal!

Also we won our bowling league on Tuesday night beating out the same team that beat us in the championship last year. It felt great and we are so happy that we did as well as we did. Now we are switching to golf mode and just need some help from Mother Nature before we can get started there.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a nine time winner from 2015.   Dan Creeden gets ready for the Hard Clay Open at OCFS on Saturday and talks about his hopes for the race as well as his plans for the 2016 season.  

Jim Bogett talks about his 1st Mod Lite race at Merrittville on April 23rd, how big the class is worldwide and his new Firehouse Sub Store in Camillus. Mention Doug’s Dirt Diary for a special deal!

Alan Barker is moving back up to Modified this year and told me how his racecars look right now.
Nick Kennedy talks about his Four Cylinder win at Penn Can and how he beat out his brother.

I am back and ready to go after my typical day off on Tuesday. The bowling season is now over and soon we will switch to golf mode and hope to get out and hit some balls any day now. It is still to messy to try to get on a course and I like to wait till the first mowing of the year before heading out. Hopefully I will get to do that soon.

And remember I am in the jury pool this week so at any time I may be short on time. I hope it does not affect what I do here but it could so I will do the best I can and try like heck to get you new stuff.

In case you missed it, Canandaigua has already cancelled for this weekend and as of now Five Mile Point is still on for Saturday. I hope to have more on that later this week.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a man who is really loaded for bear this season. Alan Barker is moving back up to Modified this year and told me how his pair of racecars look right now as well as his plans for the coming season.  

Nick Kennedy talks about his Four Cylinder win at the Penn Can opener, how he beat out his older brother in the closing laps and where he will race this season.

Tony Veneziano reports on the WoO Sprint race from Placerville and Kasey Kahne’s big win.

I had a good day on Monday and have not been called in for jury duty yet. I am on call this week and tonight is our league championship so I am very happy that I don’t have to rush out of the courthouse today to make sure I get practice. Whew! Now if I do have to go in later this week it won’t be a big deal. Again…whew!

More good stuff on the page today as racing continues to move north closer to Central New York. And we’ll be back tomorrow with a Facebook request and a winner from this past weekend so be sure to check back for that.

Tommy Wickham talks about the role he has on his team and remembers his start in racing.
Steve Ovens updates us on the latest news from Outlaw Speedway and Woodhull Raceway.

I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready to go back after it this week. I had fun all weekend long and I will be back in the studio today with hopes of getting at least three more interviews done. Racers, if you are free today then send me a message at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com and we’ll talk today!

Tomorrow is a big day as we bowl for the league championship and take on the same team that beat us last year. They are better bowlers than we are as the averages don’t lie in bowling. But when we get hot, our extra handicap can make the difference. Wish us well as we go for the title tomorrow.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting out with a Sprint Car racer who is working hard to get his ride ready for the track.   Tommy Wickham talks about the role he has on his team, how he got hooked up with the Colagiovannis and remembers his start in racing as a young man.

We had a fun day on Saturday as we visited the race shop of Paul Colagiovanni Sr. and spoke with his son and veteran racer Tommy Wickham. We’ll air one of those each day for three straight days.

It was quite the shop and Allie and I were very impressed with what we saw at this race shop and it was great to spend some time with the guys and talk Sprint Cars. Look for Tommy Wickham’s interview tomorrow and Paulie Jr. on Tuesday.

Also we have a look ahead at the King of Dirt Series and the new tracks they will visit this season. It is sure to be a great series and I know a lot of you will be following it. So check out Rob’s interview and learn what they have going on for this season.

It is Easter Sunday and my wife and I will enjoy the day and get to have dinner with our family to celebrate the holiday. Dad always makes a prime rib and he is very good at it. So I will be ready for that tonight as well as a brunch we are having with my mother in law and one of my wife’s childhood friends. It is going to be a great day!

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with the first one from my drive to Central Square on Saturday. Paul Colagiovanni Sr. talks about building a race team for his son, why he brought in an experienced driver to help and their plans for this season that may include some 410 stuff.
