Chris Mackey tells me how his shop work is going and how lightweight parts help Sportsman.
Tony Veneziano reports on the World of Outlaws Sprint Car openers from this past weekend.

It was a balmy 22 degrees at the home studio up by 44 degrees from where we were two nights ago. Yeah, it has been cold alright although it sounds like we may get above freezing today. I can’t wait.

Racing continues tonight in Florida as the DIRTcar Nationals continues and our own DIRTcar Modifieds will get their first practice laps tonight ahead of four straight nights sharing the track with the super Late Models. It’s an exciting time to be a race fan and boy do a lot of us wish we were there right now.

Speaking of right now, we have two more chats to listen to on the Audio Page as we get ready for the start of the season here and look back at some of what has happened in Florida so far. Chris Mackey tells me how his shop work is going and how lightweight parts are needed for Sportsman as we discuss weight versus durability versus cost. Hmmmm. What do you think?  

Tony Veneziano reports on the World of Outlaws Sprint Car openers from this past weekend’s DIRTcar Nationals from Volusia Speedway in Florida.

Tony Finch II talks about his Fulton Speedway championship and the work he has to do in the shop.
Kyle Kiehn tells me how close he came to winning a race in 2015 and what he has going for 2016.

The sun was shining on Sunday and people like me who stayed shuddered inside got to go out and see the light of day and get some things done. I did some running around and got the driveway done before watching some more racing with Allie. We watched the end of the ARCA race from Saturday and started on the first NHRA race of 2016 which will now be broadcasted on Fox Sports 1.

We show some love again today to the Sportsman class with a pair of drivers who race in that ultra competitive division. And I will be back in the studio today to do more interviews as the start of the season here in the northeast is still a few months away.

I did get to chat with a lot of people on Sunday but did not hit the record button once. I caught up with a few old friends and some of my non-racing buddies as well. But I’ll be back at it today and we’ll have more good stuff for you again tomorrow

Now let’s chat about what we have on the Audio Page starting out with a racer who won five times last season. Tony Finch II talks about his Fulton Speedway championship, how supportive his family is in his racing efforts and the work he has to do in the shop.

Kyle Kiehn tells me how close he came to winning his first ever Sportsman race in 2015, how he is feeling after an off season knee surgery and what he has going for 2016.

Matt Janczuk talks about his 3 win season at Utica Rome and a movie that he had a role in.
Jeff Stevenson tells me about his first series championship and how his family helps on race nights.

It was as cold as they said it would be on Saturday as the temperature never made it above zero. It did snow but I decided to stay inside all day and will snowblow the driveway later today when it is a little warmer. Not a bad idea eh?

It is Valentine’s Day today and I hope you all have someone special to share it with today. I’ll be with my wife of 22 years today and we will go out to eat sometime this week to celebrate. And of course I have some nice things for her today including her favorite…dark chocolate.

I’ll be in the studio hoping to catch a few people and have a pair of Sportsman racers in the can right now just in case I am not successful in my quest today.

So now let’s chat more about what I have for you today on the Audio Page as we show some love for the Sportsman division. Matt Janczuk talks about his 3 win season at Utica Rome, explains why he feels he runs better once summer rolls around and a movie made in Hamilton that he had a role in.  

Jeff Stevenson tells me about his first series championship, his background in racing that started in karts and how his family helps on race nights.

Tyler Graves tells me about the new chassis they are assembling and his busy 2016 race plans.

Today is going to be a cold one alright. They are talking about barely getting above zero degrees which is darned cold I don’t care who you are. So stay warm and remember it will be warm soon and we will all be at our favorite racetracks wishing it was a little cooler. We’re funny sometimes aren’t we?

I have two chats from my time in the studio on Friday and we’ll be back in the studio again today. And tonight we’ll be watching the Sprint Unlimited from Daytona as the 2016 season begins in NASCAR land. Of course they are still racing in Florida and boy do we wish we were there right now.

Wow, is it cold out today or what? The kids are hoping for a snow day but I have a feeling they’ll be back at school one more day before their winter break next week. Stay warm today guys as it is going to be brutally cold.

I got some work done last night I between stretching and other activities. I am still nursing the sore back and am hoping to maybe get back on the bowling lanes next week but I am not going to push it. No I am not.

Excited about seeing some racing tomorrow night as the Sprint Unlimited will get the NASCAR season underway. I know Allie is ready and looking ahead to seeing some action on the big track. Let’s hope everyone racing in Florida these next few weeks stays safe and has a great time.

Connor Cleveland told me about his weekly racing in 2015 and the three Sportsman in his shop.

After two days on my back I was feeling a lot better on Wednesday. It’s a long standing issue that pops up every few months and I need to make the long term changes to keep it from happening. That was rough but I am hopefully going to get better every day and be back to 100% any day now. Thanks to Hulk for all his help.

On the site today we have two nice chats for you and we’ll be back in the studio today to get more for you. I am also hoping to hit a benefit this weekend and I’ll have more on that once I firm it up.

Ryan Watt talks about his deals for the road, Friday at Big Diamond and Saturday at Bridgeport.
Mike Bowman tells me about a chassis change, explains why and tells me about his race plans.

We’ll be back to work today after a day off on Tuesday and we’ve got a lot to do. Racing is happening now in Volusia and it is going to be quite a time down in Florida with more racing than you can shake a stick at. It’s a great time to be a race fan.

And this weekend we’ll get to see some racing on TV from Daytona as things really heat up in the state of Florida. I am excited and can’t wait for this weekend and to get the results from down in the Sunshine State.

Until then we’ve got a lot for you to listen to on the Audio Page including a pair of Modified racers on the site today.   Ryan Watt talks about his deals for the road, Friday at Big Diamond and Saturday at Bridgeport as well as how his racecars look right now.
