   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Todd Titus talked about his winning season in a Sportsman and how he did weekly at Penn Can.
Mike Arquiett spoke about his season at Mohawk International and his background in quads.
 
We show some love to the Sportsman division today with a pair of drivers who compete in this growing class. I was able to get back in the studio after a day on Wednesday that was all about a leaky roof. We hope we have the problem fixed but are keeping our fingers crossed these next few weeks and looking forward to temperatures in the 40’s next week to get rid of the ice.
 
We’ll be back in the studio today and are looking for people who are putting their racecars into Motorsports Expo next weekend at the New York State Fairgrounds. And we’re hoping that the changes they are proposing do not mean the end of Super DIRT Week. I’m working on it and hope to have more soon.
 
Now let’s chat about the new stuff we have on the Audio Page for today starting with my final interview from Southern Tier Speedworld. Todd Titus talked about his winning season in a Sportsman, how close it came to his dad’s Modified win and how he did weekly at Penn Can. 
 
Mike Arquiett spoke about his season in a Sportsman at Mohawk International Raceway, why he got out of racing for a while and his background in quads & stock cars.

   New on the Audio Page from Southern Tier Speedworld:
 
Dan Harpell updates me on how things are going at Penn Can as they released their 2015 schedule.
Gregg Turner talked about his championship season in a Crate Sportsman at Five Mile Point.
 
What an adventurous day it was for us on Wednesday. A leaky roof became more than a leak and we had to get some help. I know a lot of you are going through the same thing and even though we thought we may have done something wrong, our guy tells us there is not much we could have done to stop it although I will be using the roof rake from here on in if we get any more snow.
 
It’s a helpless feeling to watch water turn from a little drip into more and we are keeping our fingers crossed for the rest of the winter. It turns out a small puddle had formed under the snow on our roof. But now we are clear – I hope- and as I type this up there are no drips in our walls or basement. Whew!
 
Of course we didn’t get this taken care of till later in the day so I was unable to get any work done but we will be back tomorrow with more new stuff form the studio. And I am looking for people who are putting their cars in next weekend’s Gater show so if you are planning on going, send me a message so we can talk on the air.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page for today starting with a promoter who has a new home for Fridays. Dan Harpell updates me on how things are going at Penn Can as they released their 2015 schedule at this past weekend’s Southern Tier Speedworld. 
 
Gregg Turner talked about his championship season in a Crate Sportsman at Five Mile Point and explains how he manages to fit his 6’6” frame inside the racecar.

   New on the Audio Page from Southern Tier Speedworld:
 
Ken Titus talked about his Modified win in 2014 as well as how nice it was to see his son win.
Mike Stolarcyk told me about his presence at Southern Tier Speedworld and his race at Pocono.
 
Well at least we made it a few days without having to deal with any weather. Yesterday was interesting to say the least as even I am starting to wish that this snow would end. Keep your fingers crossed and remember that soon we’ll be saying, “It’s too hot.”
 
We have a couple of nice conversations on the site today including a driver who won his first race since 2008 and a man who raced against some of the biggest names in NASCAR history in the glory days of the sport. Yeah, both of these are pretty good today.
 
And still in the can are chats with Dan Harpell, Todd Titus and Glenn Turner who took home best appearing car for the crate Sportsman class. So come back tomorrow for two of those and more as we will be in the studio again today for sure.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we hit the midway part of the week. Ken Titus talked about his Modified win in 2014, the first since 2008, as well as how nice it was to see his son win as both of them showed off their cars at Southern Tier Speedworld. 
 
Mike Stolarcyk told me about his presence at Southern Tier Speedworld and his race at Pocono where he raced against some of the biggest names in NASCAR. 

 
Tuesday, March 3rd 2015
   New on the Audio Page from Southern Tier Speedworld:
 
Brett Tonkin talks about his Modified championship as girlfriend Danielle Gibbs joins in.
Jeremy Warren enjoyed five trips to victory lane in 2015 and talked about his four cylinder.
John Tiff runs down some of the big dates on the Utica Rome Speedway schedule for 2015.
 
We’re keeping things rolling along this week as we have more audio from Southern Tier Speedworld this past weekend. Again it was so great to see everyone on Saturday and hopefully some of the people who came to shop or just get out of the house liked what they saw and will come check out a local racetrack this season.
 
Now remember what I asked you guys to do last fall? I wanted you to contact your local TV station’s Sports Director and invite them to come to the shop and the racetrack to see what we do. We got a lot of attention we didn’t need last year for all the wrong reasons and we all saw firsthand how little the media understands us. So let’s do what we can to change that.
 
Let them crawl around your racecar, let them sit inside it and if possible start it up to feel what it feels like to have all that horsepower under your right foot. Have them meet you at the track and maybe work with the promoter to set up a match race of some sort. It’s time to bring them into our world and show them what it is that makes us love this sport so much. And if you need any guidance, I’m here to help.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page to get your Tuesday off to a good start. Brett Tonkin talks about his Modified championship at I-88 Speedway as girlfriend Danielle Gibbs share her thoughts on seeing her dad Mitch come in second place. 
 
Jeremy Warren enjoyed five trips to victory lane in 2015 and talked about his four cylinder stock car as he checked out the cars at Southern Tier Speedworld. 
 
John Tiff runs down some of the big dates on the Utica Rome Speedway schedule for 2015 that include some new shows for first year owner Bill Shea.

Ricky Davis Sr. tells me about a track change for 2014 and his racing past that goes back decades.
Burt Maynard recaps his five win season, shows off his retro car and tells me about his condition.
 
It’s another snowy Monday. What a surprise huh? Yeah, we’ve been here before and had a lot more snow so no big deal right? That’s what I am telling myself for sure.
 
We’re going to help get your work week off to a good start with three new interviews to listen to. All three are from Southern Tier Speedworld as we had the chance to go down there on Saturday.
 
And I hope you like the story of Burt Maynard who is racing as a was of motivating himself through what life has given him. We’ll be pulling for Burt this year as he goes for a track championship and hoping that he’ll be racing for many years to come. It’s quite a story and it has made me a fan of his for sure. Hopefully we’ll hear more from him as the season goes on. 
 
Now let’s chat more about all the new stuff we have for you on the Audio Page to listen to on your busy Monday. Leon Andrus talks about the two tracks he announces at and his column on Dirt Track Digest as he spends some time at Southern Tier Speedworld.

Glenn Knapp talked about his 2014 season at Five Mile Point and why he missed a few starts.
Andrew Harpell previews the upcoming season at Five Mile Point and makes an asphalt prediction.
Jamie Page looks ahead at the 2015 schedule for I-88 Speedway and talks about an added class.
 
Allie and I had a great time yesterday as we traveled south and east to the Oakdale Mall in Johnson City to see this year’s edition of Southern Tier Speedworld. As usual, parking spaces were tough to come by at 2 in the afternoon when we got there and that is great news for all of us in the racing community.
 
This mall show has been happening for quite some time and it was great to see all the people as well as the new, shiny racecars that can’t wait to get on the track and get racing. You still have one more day to go yourself so get on down there today and support the mall like we did. We ate and did a little shopping before we left. I encourage you to do the same.
 
We got a lot of interviews done including one that really touched me that I am saving for tomorrow. What would you do if you were sick and the doctors could only do so much? I don’t know what I’d do but I’d like to think it would admirable but again…I don’t know. Tomorrow find out what 29 year old Burt Maynard did when he found out he had stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. It will give you someone to root for. What a guy, what a story. And I’ll have that for you tomorrow.
 
For now let’s talk about what we have on the Audio Page for you to listen to today from the mall show. Glenn Knapp talked about his 2014 season at Five Mile Point in a Modified, why he missed a few starts and what he has left to do to get his car race ready. 
 
Andrew Harpell previews the upcoming season at Five Mile Point, reminds fans to be patient when the season openers get closer and makes a prediction about a huge shift in the asphalt Modified world. Hmm.
 
Jamie Page looks ahead at the 2015 schedule for I-88 Speedway, picks out a few of their headline dates and talks about a class that has been added to weekly competition.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Pete Bicknell talks about his driving school at Merrittville Speedway and what teams can learn.
Todd Town tells me why he is getting back into Sportsman racing after being off since 2009.
 
I got to get some more work done in the studio on Friday and you get to listen to two new interviews today because of it. As for today, I’ll be heading down south to the Oakdale Mall for Southern Tier Speedworld to see some racecars on display and speak to the people that race them so look for some clips from that on the site tomorrow.
 
This weekend will be a quite one although the NASCAR boys are back at Atlanta which has always been one of my favorite tracks. No doubt Allie and I will be playing catch up all week on those races after a day at the mall today. Hope you guys enjoy the racing and for those of you who are working on cars we hope everything is gong well and your plans for the season are shaping up nicely.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with news on how you can improve as a driver thanks to a race school. Pete Bicknell talks about his driving school at Merrittville Speedway on April 11th, what teams can learn at the event and runs down some of what they will be teaching. 
 
Todd Town tells me why he is getting back into Sportsman racing after being off since 2009, why he got out five years ago and what his tentative plans are for this season.
