   New on the Audio Page for today:

In this edition of Doug’s Thoughts I talk about racing this past weekend and my past at Syracuse.

I got a lot done on Monday as we ran several loads of stuff over to the new house, I also wrote up a new column for the Syracuse Post Standard & Syracuse.com and recorded a new Doug’s Thoughts.

Like I said the main priority this week is moving and we may have to go a day without new stuff this week depending on how things go. I do plan on being at Weedsport on Friday as we are doing a new Atomic Power Racing Hour so I will be at one event this weekend for sure.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as I reminisce about my first days at Syracuse.   In this edition of Doug’s Thoughts I talk about racing this past weekend, my past at Syracuse and look forward to what the future can bring us in Central New York and beyond.

New on the Audio Page for today:


Tony Veneziano reports on the WoO from Lawrenceburg and gets ready for 2 races this weekend.


It was a busy day on Sunday as I got a little work done for the website, did some new voice tracks for the Atomic Power Racing Hour and ran a few car loads of stuff to the new house.


We will not be doing as much as usual on the website this week as we need to get moved in by the end of next weekend but we will have something for you every day. But once we’re moved in and the new home studio is set up, we’ll be back at full speed.


Now let’s chat about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as the 2015 race season winds down. Tony Veneziano reports on the World of Outlaws from Lawrenceburg Speedway in Indiana and gets ready for 2 races this weekend at Port Royal and Weedsport.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Vinnie Vitale talks about his late season plans and how he has been doing with his small block.
Jimmy Spano explains why he was in the Humphrey’s 85 and remembers his crash in Weedsport.

Back today with more for you on what will be the start of a very busy time for us. You will see less on the site this week as we have to get moved this week and be in the new house by this weekend as my wife starts a new job on Monday.

I could still use some help from some of you locally who have a truck or trailer. Even if you can only run one quick trip for us that would be great. We have boxes to move and we’ll get the big stuff hopefully either later this week or next weekend.

So like I said I need to scale back here until we get done with the move and then we’ll be back to 100%. I hope you understand.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with my last chats from Friday night. Vinnie Vitale talks about his late season plans, his tough luck at Syracuse and how he has been doing with his small block in selected shows.  

Jimmy Spano explains why he was in the Humphrey’s 85 on Friday at Brewerton and remembers his crash in Weedsport as well as how tough it was to get out of an upside down racecar.

New on the Audio Page from a cold & rainy Brewerton Speedway:

Pat Ward talks about racing a throw back Modified at Syracuse and the emotions on the final day.
Larry Wight told me what took him out of the Syracuse 200 and how cold it can get in a racecar.
Jack Meeks explained why he missed Outlaw 200 Weekend and looks ahead to racing Weedsport.

They gave it quite a try last night in Brewerton but Mother Nature was the winner as the rain started to fall right as the first got lap session was lining up. And now the show will be run this coming Thursday making for an extra day in Central New York for the teams as that is also Last Call at the Port Weekend in Weedsport.

It’s too bad too because there is just no place left but Thursday to put this race. Of course the points need to wrap up in two weeks at the World Finals so any date after that would not be doable.

They even pushed through quickly on Friday and were going to start early to see if they could at least get to lap 50 of the McDonalds 100. But again, Mother Nature is tough to beat although the track did everything they could.

Now let’s chat about what I did get for you to listen to on the Audio Page for today. Pat Ward talks about racing a throw back Modified at Syracuse, how he finished in tenth place and the emotions that swept though him on the final day.

Larry Wight told me what took him out of the Syracuse 200 while running very well and how cold it can get in a racecar especially a few years ago down the backstretch at the mile.  

Jack Meeks explained why he missed Outlaw 200 Weekend, how his new daughter& wife are doing and looks ahead to racing for the first time at Weedsport since the renovation.

Justin Haers offered up his thoughts as he got ready to climb in for the Syracuse 200 on Sunday.
Chris Raabe told me how his Super DIRT Week was going and how his season went up north.
Bob McGannon remembered how he got into the 150 lapper and how he did this year at OCFS.
Marc Johnson talked about his thoughts coming into the 150 and how they missed it in time trials.
Brian Swarthout did not race much this season and talked about racing his 358 at Syracuse.

What a great day it was on Thursday. It turned out to be a much nicer day than the weather people thought and I got to go out in the morning and get in 18 holes with some really nice guys, none of which I had golfed with before. I shot 41 on the front nine and we won’t talk about the back nine. I had an eagle putt but missed it. Darn.

Today I am planning to head out to Brewerton for their final show of the year. It is the completion of the Super DIRTcar Series race from September 19th and I hope the weather cooperates today.

And don’t forget Brockville Ontario Speedway hosts the Fall Nationals with 358’s tonight and big blocks tomorrow. It’s going to be a fun weekend alright.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with my final chats from Super DIRT Week. Jimmy Horton explained how he found a ride at Syracuse and the fun he had with a new team as well as how he ended up putting a 12a on the side of the car.  

Justin Haers offered up his thoughts as he got ready to climb in for the Syracuse 200 on Sunday as well as a decision he had to take after the hot lap session.  

Chris Raabe told me how his Super DIRT Week was going, described an issue they had in time trials and how his season went up north.

Bob McGannon remembered how he got into the 150 lapper and how he did this year at Orange County where he felt a few of the races got away from him.  

Marc Johnson talked about his thoughts coming into the 150 and how they missed it in time trials with a 358 Modified that was too free in the corners.  

Brian Swarthout did not race much this season and talked about racing his 358 at Syracuse while wondering what to do to his car after the morning hot laps.
