It was another busy day for me as dad continues to improve after his surgery on Monday. So much improved that I should be able to get back in the studio today and get some work done. He will be going to the rehab place any time now to begin his physical therapy and if it goes as well as the first few days have gone he should be on the golf course again by spring.

A big thanks goes out to Steve Ovens as we have been highlighting his interviews the past few days. If it wasn’t for Steve here I don’t know what I’d do this week. He’s a great guy, a heck of an interviewer and a good friend. Thanks Steve so much!!!

I hope your new year is off to a good start and hope you are all looking forward to what should be a great 2016 season. Lots of things are changing but not the determination and desire that the race teams and drivers have for what they do. I admire you all so much and I hope to be able to tell lots of your stories in the coming season.

Doug Manmiller tells me about his new ride for Grandview and what he has planned for 2016.

Back tomorrow with new stuff from Steve Ovens at the Woodhull Banquet. Enjoy the start of the new year and we’ll see you back again tomorrow.

Top five downloaded interviews from November 2015:

Alan Johnson reviews his three win season and talked about his 42 year Modified winning streak.  
Tim McCreadie talks about The World Finals and remembers some of his past in Charlotte.  
Pete Bicknell talks about his business’s presence at Parts Peddler and reviews his four win season.  
Kraig Kinser talks about his recent back surgery and his plans to race this weekend in Charlotte .  
Frank Payne tells me about his hopes to sell Skyline and keep it going until he is able to sell it.  

Great to see what we had here in November as studio interviews made up the entire top five. Alan Johnson had his second number one spot while the Kraig Kinser story was a scoop that nobody knew about until we aired it.

And happy to see Frank Payne get shown some love at Skyline, one of the best kept secrets in racing.

Top five downloaded interviews from October 2015

Hear from dozens of drivers as they get ready to walk across the stage for the final time at Syracuse.  
Kenny Tremont finished in second place and explained where the race winner was better than him.  
Stewart Friesen led the final 27 laps and talked about winning the race for the 4th time in 6 starts.  
Tim McCreadie finished in third place and talked about how restarts hurt his car for a few laps.  
Jimmy Horton explained how he found a ride at Syracuse and the fun he had with a new team.  

I was so happy to see what was number one this month as I just thought hearing from all those drivers at Super DIRT Week as they got ready to walk across the stage was really something. Too bad we’ll never get to do that again huh? And if you missed this one the first time around be sure to give it a listen.

And all five interviews were recorded over a two day span. Yep, the finale at the mile was not just the dominant chat overall but here on the website as well.
