He told me how much he has enjoyed driving the 33x car, how the 41 did the night before and what went wrong with a handful of laps to go.

We’ll be back with at least 9 interviews each over the next two days and we are still firming up our plans for the weekend that include a trip to Glen Ridge on Sunday. We’re still working on Saturday’s plans and will have those up as soon as we figure that out.

Boy was I beat on Tuesday or what? After working late on Monday the crew came nice and early on Tuesday to finish insulating our house. The good news is that they are done and they did a great job. The bad news is that I got little sleep and really am hoping to catch up a little today.
 
I have eight new clips up for you today and they are all from this past weekend. I hope to get into the studio today and get some more but if not we’re still good with lots of good stuff still in the can.
 
Don’t forget tonight is the Super DIRTcar Series opener up north at the Brockville Ontario Speedway. Because it is race number one, expect a big car count at this 1/3 mile d-shaped track.
 
If you have never made the trip up there, then this would be a great time to do it. This is a real nice track with a high grandstand, a great view and some darned good racing at these night time shows. So if you can, come on up and see the show. And for those of you who will be coming, I have three drivers up today who will tell you about what they hope to get done tonight.
 
So let’s talk about those and the other stuff we have on the Audio Page for you to listen to today. Billy Dunn spoke about tonight’s Super DIRTcar Series opener at the Brockville Ontario Speedway before he went out and won. He talked about how he has done at the track in the past, how Brockville is different compared to the tracks he normally runs and why this show will be different than the fall race.

Claude Hutchings Jr. talked about landing his first big sponsor and his new job fresh out of college. He described how the new people on board came about, what happened on Tuesday at Thunder Mountain and reminds us all to pay attention in math & science. 
 
Chris Stevens brought his Sportsman up for the GRIT Series and talked about Orange County. He told me some of what he learned about Utica Rome on Sunday, how he did in time trials and his plans for the 2014 season.
 
Mike White explained why he towed to Canandaigua to race and looked forward to a Sunday test. He told me why it is good for him to get a handle on the track, how much different it is compared to Can Am and wonders if he has a knife at a gun fight with a crate under the hood. 
 
Jeremie Corcoran previewed the All Star Sprint show at Canandaigua Motorsports Park on June 11. He talked about giving away some tickets at Utica Rome, hinted at an added attraction for that show and explained why he has a cast on his arm. Sorry, I forgot to hit the stop button here. 

 
Tuesday, May 27th 2014
   New on the Audio Page from the Victoria 200 at Utica Rome Speedway:
 
Pre race conversations:
 
Bobby Varin thought back on his past successes in long distance races and recapped his Sunday.
Brett Hearn told me about his feature win at Albany Saratoga and his hopes for Brockville.
Rocky Warner has a past at Utica Rome with crates and talked about his win at Glen Ridge.
David Marcuccilli described his side by side battle at Canandaigua and how tight his car got.
Tim McCreadie spoke about his win at Ransomville, his 5th with a Late Model and Utica Rome.
 
After the qualifying heats:
 
Rocky Warner won the first Sportsman qualifying heat and talked about losing the lead briefly.
David Marcuccilli had a good battle up front on his way to a win and told me about the track.
Rocco Leone led every lap as he pulled away for a win and talked about the need to tighten more.
Vic Coffey switched cars after Sunday and talked about his win in the first Modified heat race.
Tim McCreadie got the win in his qualifier and spoke about his plan coming from thirteenth.
Stewart Friesen ran his race winning streak to six after his heat win and talked about his Sunday.
Matt Sheppard and Rick Laubach talked about their one-two finish in heat number four.
Tyler Dippel told me about his win in the final Mod heat and his Late Model plans for this weekend.
 
After the feature races:
 
Rocky Warner spoke with Shane Andrews after his win in the 30 lap GRIT Sportsman feature.
Nick Guererri ran down the leader to finish second and talked about how a late race caution hurt.
Stewart Friesen took home a cool $10,000 for his victory and told Mike Mallett all about it.
Matt Sheppard came home in second place for the third day in a row and spoke with Mike Mallett.
Danny Johnson raced hard for his third place finish and told Mike Mallett about his nice run.
 
It was a beautiful day on Memorial Day as I headed to the Utica Rome Speedway for the Victoria 200 which was joined by the GRIT Series for Sportsman. There were 40 Modifieds and 39 Sportsman on what was a black, slick racetrack for all.
 
It was challenging as this race always is and a good crowd was on hand to watch Stewart Friesen take his winning streak at the track to 7 as he won his qualifier and the 100 lap feature which was worth $10,000. And just like the night before, Matt Sheppard led early and finished in second place although Monday did pay considerably more.
 
Sheppard led the first 25 laps before Friesen got by and then extended his lead as he got into lapped traffic. In the end only 9 cars were on the lead lap as a 57 lap green flag run saw a lot of folks go down a lap to the leader. Danny Johnson and Dale Planck raced for what seemed like darned near every lap with Johnson taking third place. Planck was fourth and Tim McCreadie fifth.
 
In the GRIT Sportsman feature Rocky Warner was out front and cruising until Nick Guererri started to reel him in. Warner had a full straightaway lead until Guererri started to close the gap with 8 to go. On the final lap it looked like Guererri had the lead but the yellow flag waved for a caution that coincidentally involved his brother.
 
Warner survived the last lap and went on to the win. It was an awesome race and I can only imagine what it felt like for Nick when that 79 car started to get bigger. You know what they say right? The race isn’t over till the…oh no, wait. That’s Joe Marotta’s phrase.
 
I have a lot saved in the can and lots of audio for you this week as we’ll get a minimum of 8 per day so be sure to come back for more. Have a great Tuesday and remember it is a short week. Next weekend will be here before you know it.

Mike Walton won his career first Sportsman race and told Mike Mallett about recent struggles.
Stewart Friesen made a late race pass of Matt Sheppard and talked about his five win night.
Russ Marsden won his second Pure Stock feature race in a row and teased a track employee.
 
We had a fun night at the Utica Rome Speedway in what Allie said was her, “best weekend ever.” It was quite a night as Stewart Friesen must have made history somehow as he won every race he was in. He won both the Sprint and Mod heat, the Sprint Dash and both the A-Main and the feature. Yep, it was that kind of night.
 
No it was not easy. He took the lead with just five to go in the Empire Super Sprints A-Main right as leader Paul Kinney headed to the infield tapping one of the signs before coming to a stop. Then in the Modified feature he got by matt Sheppard with five to go as well to win that race. Wow!
 
Nice night also for Mike Walton as he won his first feature at the track and he also won his heat race earlier. Turns out he has been working on a tight condition on corner entry for quite some time and it looks like he may have solved that problem. He held off multi-time winner and current point leader Jeremy Vunk lap after lap and even survived a yellow with two to go. Nice job Mike!
 
Congrats also go out to Tom Denton and Russ Marsden for their stock cars wins. It was a nice night with a huge crowd on hand for what is always one of the most popular dates on the Utica Rome schedule.
 
Now today we’ll be back there again for the Victoria 200. I have some work to do as I need to write up my column before I leave so I may get there not quite as early as I usually do but I’ll try my best to get there as early as I can.
 
Need sleep to be ready so I will call it a night. Have a great Memorial Day and be sure to pause to think of the brave men and women have gave their lives in sacrifice for this great country of ours. This is not a day for fun, it is a day of remembrance so be sure to pause at some time today and give thanks to the people who made this country what it is today.

Allie and I had a great time last night as we headed west to Canandaigua Motorsports Park. I knew Allie was in the mood for a race and with the demo derby on the card she made the choice for us based on that and off we went.
 
It was fun to introduce her around to people I have known in some cases for twenty years. I started going to Canandaigua in 1994 when I was a DIRT announcer wanna be with my DIRT employee card from Brewerton that allowed me into the pits for free. Yay! Brewerton had just switched to DIRT and I wanted in.
 
My plan was simple. Camille and I went every week in 1994 and sat right in front of the tower. I figured if I was there every week, (I waved to my friends in the tower so they knew I was there every time.) was very visibly not doing anything, then maybe something would happen and they would find something for me to do. The next year they needed an announcer and in I went. Wow! I still can’t believe that worked. Can you?
 
So Canandaigua is special to me and always will be. After watching my first season in 1994 and seeing that this was a premier track with a great layout that made for exceptional side by side racing, I was hooked. So to able to share this with Allie is so much fun and keeps me focused and on point as I explain things to her that maybe a lot of casual fans don’t know. It reminds me to share them with you at the same time. Yay again!
 
But enough about that, the Modified, Sportsman and Street Stock races were great side by side affairs. In the Modified division, Billy Dunn made a great move early to go from 7th to 4th as he swept the outside of 3 cars. Later he and early leader Vinnie Vitale put on a great show for the fans as they swapped the lead 3 times before Dunn pulled ahead for good.
 
Steve Gray beat David Marcuccilli in another classic in the Sportsman and Pete Stefanski held off a late charge from Mike Welch as Welch ran Stefanski down from half a straightaway behind. It was one of those where with 6 to go you said, “Maybe he can catch him.” And he darned near beat him.
 
The demo derby was fun and Allie and I moved as close we could to it as that is where she wanted to be. She had seen one once before and loved every minute of it. She asked me beforehand if I would ever do one of those myself and I said, “no”. About halfway through it she said, “I don’t want you doing this daddy.” When I was young and healed quickly, maybe…but now? No way.
 
I got a lot of interviews and did the best I could in the big pit area. I saved 9 interviews, many of which are for Wednesday to preview the first Super DIRTcar Series race of the year at Brockville Ontario Speedway later that night, and will be back on the road today as Allie and I will see some Sprint Cars and fireworks at Utica Rome. (She’s been to this show before and requested it when she heard about it.) Then on Monday I’ll be on my own for the Victoria 200.
 
Gotta get some sleep now as we all have a lot do in the next 48 hours so I’ll let you guys go to do the same. Best of luck today and I will see you tomorrow with lots of stuff from the ESS at Utica Rome and then again on Tuesday with audio from the Victoria 200. Plus we’ll have a lot daily next week if everything keeps going like it is and I continue to be able to save clips for the can.
 
Have a great Memorial Day Weekend and remember the brave men and women who served this great country of ours. Thanks goes out to all of them.
