We had a fun day on Wednesday as I wrote up a new column for the Syracuse Post Standard, headed out to see Dan Pilat for some website logo work and got to wrap things up with a chat in the studio.
 
Yes, it was a productive day and I hope today is as well. My wife is working and Allie has an orchestra rehearsal tonight so I will only have a small window to get some interviews done. Fortunately I have about 12 interviews left in the can from our friend Steve Ovens so I may have to lean on them for tomorrow. One way or another, we’ll have lots of good stuff up for you.
 
As for the new logo, we have two to choose from. Both of them are on my Facebook page so go and let me know which one you like. I already know which one I like but enough people disagree with me, I’ll switch. Only thing is I won’t tell ya which one. So go and vote today.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page for you to listen to today. Tyler Brehm recaps his experience at The Chili Bowl, looks forward to racing down in Florida starting February 12th and runs down what he hopes to do locally in the coming season.

Thanks to Steve Ovens for all the Black Rock stuff and we’ll have more from Steve later this week.
 
Of course we’ll be in the studio again today and we’ll be heading out to see Dan Pilat as we get things together for our redesign of the website. Dan is one of the most talented people I know and not just with graphics, he is also a wizard on the bowling lanes too.
 
And news came out about the Central New York Sportsman Alliance that includes Brewerton, Canandaigua, Fulton, Utica Rome and Weedsport. This should allow a class that is already growing by leaps and bounds to grow even more.
 
Now let’s chat more about the new stuff we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who liked what he was seeing in the Sportsman class so much, he bought a car! Steve Abt explained why he is moving to a Dirt Sportsman and how he did in his first race at Outlaw Weekend and why this division appeals so much to him at this time.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Eldon Payne talked about some gains he made last year and why he’ll add a new weekly track.
Lance Yonge described what he has been doing since he stopped racing and who he has been helping.
 
The work week is now in full swing just like I’ll be later on today in the home studio. After a day off for the Supper Bowl and a somewhat easy Monday (bowling is hard all of a sudden.) I’m ready to get back at it today.
 
Racing will really heat up here soon too as things in Georgia and Florida are happening in the next few weeks. The long wait will be over for some but for those of us trapped in the snow and cold it still can seem like a lifetime till we’re back doing what we love so much.
 
It will be soon and the wait will make it that much better. “Good things come to those who wait,” is what dad used to drill into us as kids. So sit back, enjoy some extra family time and know that we’ll be getting going soon enough.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today starting with a man who is feeling pretty good right now about what he learned last season. Eldon Payne talked about some gains he made last year and why he’ll add a new weekly track to his routine in an effort to get more seat time. 
 
Lance Yonge described what he has been doing since he stopped racing, how busy things happening locally have kept him who he has been helping with some set up advice.

I hope you all enjoyed the big game last night and I hope your get together went smoothly. We had a nice time breaking in dad’s new TV and it was nice to have people together for the big game.
 
I was smart and did a lot of work on Saturday so I did not have to hustle yesterday to catch people on what was a very busy day. The two chats I have up for today were recorded then as well as the two you’ll get today. I hope you like them.
 
And be sure to see my facebook page to see our new logo for the new site. You fans of Late Models, Sprint Cars and Stock Cars will like that you are now included on t he new logo.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page. I start with a man who has had a wonderful new person come into his life. Justin Barger talks about his season running 410 Sprints in Pennsylvania, what his big goal is by running those shows and his new addition to the family.

Dustin Purdy discussed his season with the CRSA and what he has learned these past two seasons.
 
Super Sunday is here and I hope you all have a great time getting together with friends and family. I have no rooting interest as of now and sometimes that makes the day a little better. Heck, if your team loses, it is not gong to be a fun day so I’ll have fun one way or another.
 
We’re heading to dad’s house today and some friends will come as well. We’re not going to worry what we eat today (I’ve been trying to eat a little better.) but we’ll go back to that tomorrow.
 
Up today we have a pair of chats we did on Friday and the next two days we’ll hear from Justin Barger, Eldon Payne Jr., Tom Denton and find out what Lance Yonge has been doing since he got out of the seat after the 2013 season.

No, hi didn’t catch dinner as far as I know.

Scott Duell talks about moving up to Modified for 2015 and how to know when the time is right. 
Colby Herzog looks back in his season in a Four Cylinder and tells me about the car he is building.
 
I got a lot done on Friday as I recorded four new interviews in the home studio. I hope to do pretty much the same today as I have a feeling Sunday might be a tough day to get ahold of people. I hear something about a football game…
 
Up tomorrow we’ll hear from Sportsman driver Brian White as he chatted with me while ice fishing on the Susquehanna River and we’ll check in with Sprint Car driver Dustin Purdy and see if we can stump him with a math question. He’s a 6th grade math teacher.

Do you agree that you need to learn to win first in any class before moving up?

Today we have three good ones for you to close out the work week. I had a special thing to do last night that I’ll tell you about on Facebook so I was off on Thursday. But I’ll be back in the studio today and this weekend so if you want to get on, message me on Facebook or at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com.
