Jeff Rockefeller talked about his season at Glen Ridge, his new shop and his surprise party.
Bret Belden tells me about a health scare he had at the holidays and a chassis change for 2016.

I hope you all got off to a good start on your work week and we hope all of you affected by the big snow storm are back to normal today and I hope your backs are not too sore from all the shoveling.

We have a pair of interviews up for you today and will be back tomorrow with more from my Monday night chats. I’ll be off today and will hit the bowling lanes tonight before doing some on line racing later. Yeah, most people get the weekend off but I can get a lot done then so lately I choose Tuesday as my one day off every week.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page with a guy who is ready to race more in 2016. Jeff Rockefeller talked about his one win season at Glen Ridge, his new shop that they finished last fall and his surprise 40th birthday party on Saturday.

I got a lot done this weekend as I spoke to more drivers about their 2015 season and what they have going on in a few months. I have a couple of nice ones up today including a nice one with Eddie Sites who had a life changing moment a few years ago. Listen to hear how he came out of it with a new appreciation on life and how it actually helped him get his own business going.

I will be back tomorrow with conversations with Bret Belden, who just had his own life changing moment, and Modified racer Jeff Rockefeller who is set to really attack racing this coming season.

I will be back in the studio today and will have another write up for you guys on Tuesday at Syracuse.com.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Joey Colsten talks about his season at Penn Can, a scale issue they had and his new Modified.
Joe Marotta shares some stories on brand new NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee Jerry Cook.

We are back with more good stuff today as we wish everyone to our south affected by the big storm all the best. Us hearty Central New Yorkers like to joke about how much snow we get and how little we let it change our plans but for many of you in this latest storm you just don’t have the resources to deal with like we do. So we wish all of you the best and hope you get through it all just fine. Remember, it will melt and hopefully not too fast.

I have a pair of interviews up that I did before dinner time and tomorrow I’ll be back with my nighttime chats and maybe some of what I get done today. I am hoping to really get a lot done so if you can help and have time for an interview just send me a message.

And from what I hear, our friend Rocky Warner could use some good thoughts and prayers. Rocky is one of the most talented racecar drivers I know and I wish him well as he struggles. Get well soon buddy, we love you and need you at the track.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting out with a racer who could turn some laps tomorrow if he had to. Joey Colsten talks about his one win season at Penn Can, a scale issue they had that had them stymied for weeks and his new Modified that he’ll show of in a month in Johnson City.   

Joe Marotta shares some stories on brand new NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee Jerry Cook and remembers his accomplishments on both dirt and asphalt.

I hope all of you affected by the big winter storm are doing alright. Depending on how far south you are you could be in the storm’s path so we wish you all the best. We’re fortunate here in Central New York as we’ll be snow free this weekend. It’s okay, we already have enough on the ground for now.

I hope you all get the chance to get down to Lenny Sammon’s Motorsports show today as they have a lot going on. Ernie Saxton talks about some of the activities of today and we hope the weather is not a factor in your decision to go.

I’ll be back in the studio today and again tomorrow and hoping to get a lot done. If you want in, just send me a message on Facebook or at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com and we’ll get you on.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Ryan Jordan talks about his brand new Modified, his two win season and his plans for 2016.
Steve Hall tells me about his plans to race a 358 this season and thinks back on his racing past.

I had another fun day on Thursday as I got some more interviews done, placed some calls for others to take place soon and got to watch some Mecum Auctions with a friend. It was a fun day and a snow free day which is all good.

Thinking good thoughts for all of you in the snow storm and hoping that it switches to rain at some point to give you guys a break. The motorsports show is this weekend in the Philly area and I hope the weather is not so bad to affect it. Best of luck to all of you who are going. Wish I could join you.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you tomorrow on the Audio Page starting with something I noticed on Facebook.   Ryan Jordan talks about his brand new Modified that sits in his immaculate race shop, his two win season and his tentative plans for 2016.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Tiger Chapman talks about Can Am moving to Saturday nights and adding 358 Modifieds.
Dave Rogers tells me about his Sportsman ride, his 358 ride and the two new cars at the shop.

We’re showing some love for Can Am Motorsports Park today as we find out about some changes for 2016 and meet with a driver who will call the place his weekly home. Its information from the people who make things happen and we’re happy to bring it to you.

We’re doing fine here and bracing for another possible storm this weekend. This one could be big but the last one was supposed to be bigger so we’ll wait and see what happens.

Dad continues to get better every day and he is walking pretty well for a guy who had his hip replaced 17 days ago. And our old house is ready to go on the market any day now which will help greatly as we deal with a temporary cash crunch.

Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page as we have firsthand news from The North Country.   Tiger Chapman talks about Can Am moving to Saturday nights, adding 358 Modifieds to the weekly program and why they probably won’t be DIRTCar Sanctioned.  

Dave Rogers tells me about his new Sportsman ride, his 358 ride that he will share and the two new cars at the shop that he can’t wait to race.

Joe Trenca reviews his season in 360 & 410 Sprints as well as his plans to race more 410’s in 2016.

I hope you all survived the snow alright as we had some real winter weather these past few days. Sounds like today will be a little quieter and we should be able to put the shovels away for a few days…we hope.

I took yesterday off to bowl and race on line as I usually do on Tuesdays. It’s a great way to recharge the batteries and I have been enjoying both activities a lot as Tuesday is fast becoming my favorite day of the week.

I’ll be back in the studio today so look for more good stuff tomorrow as we get closer and closer to some big events and eventually we’ll all be going to races every weekend. Until then, we’ll do the best we can to keep you pumped up about what is to come.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page starting with a big change at a storied racetrack. Pete Demitraszek talks about his new role as promoter at Fonda, his continuing role at Glen Ridge and his hopes for the 2016 season for both tracks.
