Eldon Payne Jr. talks about his new Modified, his hopes for Florida and where he’ll race in 2016.
Jim Olin tells me about his new role promoting Fingerlakes Speedworld and his new role at Paradise.

I had another fun day on Thursday and got a lot more work done. I will be in the studio again tomorrow and will have more good stuff from you from that session.

I have two on the site today as we get ready for February in Florida and the mall shows that will bring in new fans to our sport. These mall shows are so important and I encourage all of you who can do so to get your racecar to these shows. We all wish we could make more $ for our troubles and if we get more fans to go, that will happen but not until.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who is working hard in his shop right now. Eldon Payne Jr. talks about his new Modified he is working on now, his hopes for Florida in two weeks and where he’ll race in 2016.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Tim Fuller talks about the work he is doing to get ready for Florida and runs down his plans.
Jordan Bennett tells me about his plans to run weekly in 2016 and thinks back on last season.

We are back with more good stuff today as we get ready for action to begin on the dirt tracks of Florida. And unlike some years where we are snowed in and totally jealous of those of you who are heading south, it is a little easier to take this year as we could race this weekend here in New York if everyone was ready and the surfaces were a little drier.

We have two good ones for you today and will be back tomorrow with Curt Van Pelt and Dean Reynolds. On Thursday we’ll hear from Cory Pike as he gets ready for a move up to the super competitive world of Modified racing. It’s all good here.

Dad continues to do well and is walking around very well as he makes it four weeks since his hip replacement. One of my childhood friends passed away on Monday after a long battle with cancer. He lived one street over from me and I remember the little sports car he had as a teen. Rest in peace Rich. You’re missed by many!

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who will be very busy this week. Tim Fuller talks about the work he is doing to get ready for Florida and tells me what he hopes to accomplish on the trip as well as his plans for the 2016 season.  

Jordan Bennett tells me about his plans to run weekly in 2016, thinks back on a winless year in 2015 and explains why he did not race as much as in year’s past.

Andrew Ferguson tells me about his benefit in Camillus on February 13th and his hopes for 2016.
Jeff Hachmann talks about the DIRTcar Nationals starting in 8 days and the Rolex 24 at Daytona.

After a bit of a slow start I got going pretty well in the studio recording four new interviews. One of those is up today as well as one from Saturday and in the can are chats with Tim Fuller, Cory Pike and Jordan Bennett. Plus I have three things set up for today so be sure to check back every day to see what’s new.

After I got my work done Allie and I sat down to watch the end of the Rolex 24 from Daytona which in my mind marks the official start of the 2016 race season. We just love these cars and I have raced on the Daytona road course countless times online so I know the track well and really look forward to this all star style event.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Tim Sears Jr. tells me why he was in Baltimore last week and how ahead they are in the race shop.
Johnny Hill talks about his season ending back surgery as well as how he and his racecar are doing.

I got a lot done on Saturday as I got a day ahead like I always hope to don the weekend. I worked in the afternoon until after dinner time and chatted with a lot of folks. Two of those are up today and the others will air tomorrow and Monday.

We’re still doing well here and even though the For Sale sign is not up on our old house we already have someone coming to look at it today. Hopefully we can sell that to a nice young family and they can enjoy the house as much as we did. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Dad is doing incredibly well and sometimes when you see him walk you forget that he just had his hop replaced only three weeks ago. We are so optimistic and maybe if all goes well I’ll get my golf buddy back after just one round in the last two years. So now we cross our fingers on the other hand.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page today starting with a man who worked a ton of hours this past week. Tim Sears Jr. tells me why he was in Baltimore last week, how ahead they are in the race shop right now and how fortunate he is to have his family’s support.  

Johnny Hill talks about his season ending back surgery in August, how he is doing six months later and how little he has to do to get his Late Model ready for the track.

Matt Roberts talks about his move to a crate Sportsman after four years of IMCA competition.  
Paul Harkenrider tells me about his new job with the Patriot Sprint Tour and his racing past.

Another weekend is here and we’ll get you started with two more chats for you. I will be in the studio again today and tomorrow and we’ll have much more for you tomorrow.

Both the people on the site today are doing different things this year and each is looking forward to a new challenge. It’s an exciting time for both of them and we wish them well in their new ventures.

As for me, we met with a real estate agent to put our old house on the market and the sign will go up on Monday. We’re hoping for a quick sale but really will miss our old house. We had two kids in that house and love the neighborhood. We hope it goes to a nice young family who will love the house as much as we do.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who did not race much last season. Matt Roberts talks about his move to a crate Sportsman after four years of IMCA competition and explains why he made the change.  

Paul Harkenrider tells me about his new job with the Patriot Sprint Tour as announcer & P.R. representative and his racing past at Woodhull the past three years.
