   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Mike Stacey talks about his 2018 Sportsman season and remembers his start in racing on the ice.
J.J. Courcy told me about the five different styles of cars he drove in 2017 and runs down his plans.

That was quite the storm wasn’t it? It dumped over a foot of heavy, wet snow on us here and it was not easy to get rid of. As I type this up at 8:45 p.m. it looks like it may have stopped. Just in time too as I have to hit the road today.
 
I’ll be going to Johnson City today for Southern Tier Speedworld and then tomorrow I’ll be heading to Finger Lakes Mall in Auburn for Finger Lakes Speedworld. I love these pre-season mall shows as it is a great way for us to show the non-racing public what we’re all about.

Make sure to spend some money at the malls, wear your gear and tell the people at the registers why you are there. It helps keep these things going. So that is your homework okay?
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page for today as we feature a pair of Sportsman racers. Mike Stacey talks about his 2018 Sportsman season, how he did in some late season specials and remembers his start in racing on the ice as a teenager. 

J.J. Courcy
told me about the five different styles of cars he drove in 2017 and runs down his plans for this year that include a return to a type of car he hasn’t driven in a while.

I am wishing you guys and gals all the best as we weather an early March snow storm today. Hopefully all you guys are alright and hopefully it will not mess up the car shows taking place this weekend starting today in Johnson City.
 
I’ll be down at Oakdale Mall on Saturday and then Finger Lakes Mall in Auburn on Sunday. I hope all the sow is gone by then and we can all see some nice new racecars and catch up on how our favorite drivers are doing. I LOVE March and can’t wait to see you all this weekend.
 
Now let’s chat about what we have on the Audio Page today starting with one of the newest members to the DIRT Hall of Fame in Weedsport.

I’ll be on Johnson City for Southern Tier Speedworld on Saturday and then out in Auburn at Fingerlakes Mall on Sunday. I may even go to Auburn on Friday although the weather may end of being the determining factor there. We’ll have to see as you never know what these Nor’ easters will do. Keep your fingers crossed.

Tyler Ward told me about the new car he is finishing up and where he will be racing this season.
Travis Welch talks about his return to Pro Stock racing and remembers last year in a crate Sportsman.

What a week huh? Well you know what they say about March don’t you? In like a lamb, out like a lion. Let’s hope the old phrase is wrong but in my 56 years of being on their earth I’ve found a lot of truth to that statement so don’t put that snowblower in the shed just yet.
 
Back fresh today after a day off on Tuesday and I’ll be back in the studio today with lots to do. Don’t forget there are a pair of car shows this weekend as Southern Tier Speeedworld takes over Oakdale Mall in Johnson City while Fingerlakes Speedworld takes over the Fingerlakes Mall in Auburn.

Bob Reis previews the coming season at Freedom Motorsports Park and talks about driving again.
Tony Veneziano reports on racing in Australia and previews this week’s WoO races in Las Vegas.

I was finally feeling more like myself on Monday as three days of laying low finally paid off. I guess I got out of this pretty well as I know a lot of you are still hurting and have been sick a lot longer than I have. I hope you all get better and are back to 100% real soon.
 
I got a lot done on Monday and have a nice article in Today’s Post Standard about the two engine options for Sportsman teams looking to go to a small block. If you don’t see it on the newsstand you can read it online at www.syracuse.com/motorsports.
 
And since I did get a lot done I have a bonus clip up for today and also tomorrow. I’ll be off as usual today for bowling and I also have some family business to take care of. It’s all good and I’ll be back at it Wednesday and hopefully feeling even better then.

Randy Shantel remember his problem filled season in 2017 and talks about an engine change.

Well we’re back today although still staying away from public events as I am coughing, blowing my nose and sneezing all over the place. I did fell well enough to do some more interviews in the studio but am staying inside for at least one more day today before venturing out. Got to get better fast right?
 
Along the way on Sunday I did get a lot done and am now off to a great start for the week. Unfortunately Allie is now sick too as whatever this is has worked it’s way through all of us except my youngest. We’ll see if she’s next. Hope not as it is not fun at all.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today staring with a request from down in Pennsylvania from a long time friend.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Kyle DeMetro talks about his upcoming race benefit on April 7th and his plans to race more in 2018.

It was a sick day for me on Saturday as the cold I’ve been thinking was on it’s way finally hit me on Friday. I know it’s not the flu as that comes on hard and fast but it is still wiping me out and caused me to alter my weekend plans.
 
I know you’re contagious in the first few days so I will stay home today while my family attends a benefit this afternoon. I’ll try to get some things done in the studio and hopefully everything will go as planned. Keep your fingers crossed.
 
And how about Super DIRT Week winner Stewart Friesen picking up a sixth place run at Atlanta with the Camping World Truck Series? I noticed but was wondering if the people from Fox even saw him out there as he is getting almost no press with them. Way to welcome the new guy Fox! Fortunately when he gets a win they won’t be able to ignore him then.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we check in with a racer with big plans for 2018. Kyle DeMetro talks about his upcoming race benefit on April 7th, his plans to race more in 2018 and thinks back on his time in college with his racing roommate.
