Back today with our final new interviews of the season as we get ready to remember the year that was starting tomorrow. We’ll go month by month starting with last January and go through the entire year.

It will make for a very busy day today but will give me some time off at the holidays and keep me from trying to get ahold of you at a time when family is so important. So be sure to come back tomorrow and for the next twelve days as we look back at the 2016 season on our website.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as finish out the year with a pair of drivers who run in the most popular division in our area. Dylan Zacharias remembers his 2016 season racing weekly at Brewerton & Fulton Speedways and tells me how close he came to getting his first win in the division and why you can’t move up too early.  

Michelle Courcy talked about her second season in a Sportsman, how she held on with a wounded car to get her first Novice feature win and how much tougher it is when you move up from Novice.
