New on the Audio Page for today:

Tom Collins Jr. tells me about his abbreviated runs in a Modified and his plans to race a crate.
Frank Guererri explains why he is switching to a Crate Late Model and where he will be racing.

After a day off on Tuesday I will be back in the studio today and back chatting hopefully with some new folks and some of you who were down in the Florida last week. I am pumped up and ready to go after a fun day of bowling and online racing on Tuesday.

I am still hoping to meet some new folks and am making my plans to head down to Southern Tier Speedworld this Saturday. Allie and I will be heading down so be ready to chat and show off your racecars to our fellow racers and the people at the mall who just might happen to be there. Show yourself well, represent the sport well and let’s make some new fans.

I know there are some other car shows out there so please take the time to drop me a line so I know where they are and can help promote them. If you are showing your car at any of these shows, let me know and I’ll get you some pre-race exposure. Either message me on Facebook or send me an email to doug@dougsdirtdiary.com.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as the start of the local racing season gets closer day by day.   Tom Collins Jr. tells me about his abbreviated runs in a Modified, how quickly things went wrong and his plans to race a crate Sportsman at Thunder Mountain in 2016.  

Frank Guererri explains why he is switching to a Crate Late Model and where he will be racing it in 2016 and thinks back on his days running a Sportsman with his family.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Brian White talks about his Sportsman championship at Five Mile Point and a change for 2016.
Adam DelGrosso tells me about his 4 Cylinder championship at Woodhull and his racing background.
In this edition of Doug’s Thoughts I discuss how the close race on Sunday could help us all.

We’ve been busy on the studio and getting to talk with a lot of new people. I am loving this and want to keep it going so if I have not interviewed you before or your favorite driver then let me know about it either on Facebook or with an email to doug@dougsdirtdiary.com and we’ll do what we can to change that.

We have a pair of champions on the site today as well as a must listen to Doug’s Thoughts. I only do a few of these and only do them when I have something to say directly to the community so give this one a listen and let me know what you think because I think the iron is hot right now and we need to act as a group.

I will be off today as it Tuesday which means bowling and racing. I bowl first at Flamingo Bowl and it will be my first time after a nagging back injury sidelined me for two weeks. But thanks to my buddy Hulk in Chicago I am going to be back tonight with my first place team. Then after that it will be time for some new Racenet Challenges on GRID Autosport online. I love Tuesdays!

Now let’s chat about what we have for you today on the Audio Page with a pair of drivers coming off of very successful seasons. Brian White talks about his Sportsman championship at Five Mile Point, the trouble he had when he went on the road and a change in his weekly home for 2016.  

Adam DelGrosso tells me about his 4 Cylinder championship at Woodhull, the keys to getting around this high banked track and his racing background. Good one here guys with a guy who is not bashful by any means!  

In this edition of Doug’s Thoughts I discuss how the close race on Sunday could help us all and what we can do together to try to increase awareness of the sport we all love so much.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Tyler Ward talks about his crate Sportsman championship at Skyline and his plans for 2016.
Jeff Ciglich tells me about the Eastern Ontario Vintage Stock Car Club and their 2016 schedule.

What a great race it was on Sunday at Daytona. That was the best finish I’ve ever seen in that race and I hope you all had a chance to watch it. It was really something alright.

So now that Florida’s racing is over for now the focus shifts to the race shops and the work it takes to get the rest of the racing world up to speed. A lot of drivers tell me that Daytona serves as their wake up call and gets them going at the shop so I hope you are all ready.

And this time after Daytona is also a great time to land new sponsors. Many racetrack people have told me that this is when they make most of their sponsorship deals so get out there and hit the streets as now the iron is hot.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you tonight on the Audio Page starting with a driver who was best in his class last year at his Saturday home. Tyler Ward talks about his crate Sportsman championship at Skyline, how a blown engine at another track almost cost him the title and his plans for 2016.

Jeff Ciglich tells me about the Eastern Ontario Vintage Stock Car Club and their 2016 schedule that includes some tracks that are new to the series.   Their meeting is coming up on February 27th at 2 p.m. at Number One Speed in Watertown.

Cole Davidson gets ready for the Novice Sportsman class and talks about his go cart background.

We had a fun day on Saturday as my youngest daughter Katie celebrated her 9th birthday. She had friends over, had pizza and had a great time. I had fun too seeing her enjoy herself and even got to watch the game a little in between. It was a fun day.

I will be back in the studio today in between laps of the Daytona 500 and am looking forward to seeing what happens on the big track. Hopefully there will be no Big One and the drivers can concentrate on racing instead of avoiding wrecks.

I have some good stuff for you today on the Audio Page so let’s find out more about what we have for you today. Billy Colton talks about the dirt Modified/Sportsman seminars and the open house at Troyer Race Cars March 5th and the asphalt seminar 6th. To register go to www.troyerracecars.com.

Michelle Courcy talked about her Novice Sportsman races and how happy she is to be in remission.

I got a lot done on Friday as I chatted with three new people, something I am trying hard to do these next few weeks. I was looking through some of my Facebook friends and realized I had never spoken to many of them. I need to change that and need your help to do so.

So either message me through Facebook or send me an email to doug@dougsdirtdiary.com and we’ll help tell your story and talk racing. I enjoyed meeting some new folks yesterday and hope to do more of that today and tomorrow. Don’t be bashful guys. Give me a shout and let’s talk.

Two good ones for you on the Audio Page and let’s find out more about these to chats that are very personal in nature. Mike Schane explained why we did not see him much last year, how tough it can be to run a Modified weekly and his altered plans for 2016.

Jim Olin previews Fingerlakes Speed World and runs down the activities for both young & old.

I had a fun day on Thursday as I got to meet someone new in the studio and spend some time with friends. As I write this I am getting ready to watch the 150’s from Daytona and looking forward to following the action the next three days.

It’s a great time to be a race fan as there is so much going on right now. I’ll be back in the studio today and have something set up for this afternoon already. Plus I will be in the studio all weekend long and am looking forward to chatting with some more people that I have not met before.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for today on Audio Page for you to listen to as we wrap up the work week. Travis Smith talks about moving from Open Sportsman to Mod at the mid point of the 2015 season and why he is staying in Sportsman for the time being.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Jordan McCreadie talks about his season at Mohawk International and Brockville Ontario Speedway.
Mike Walton talks about the advantage that lightweight parts can give a crate Sportsman.

It’s a great time to be a racefan! Sure, the on track action is far away but at least we’re talking about actual racing going on right now. Best of luck to everyone who is racing now and we hope everything goes well. I wish I was there!!!

We have some nice stuff for you today including a lot of valuable information to you Sportsman teams out there and boy are there a lot of you. Many of you have asked about all this new lightweight stuff and wondered about the benefits and costs. I’ve got a good one today to help with that issue and hopefully you guys will get a lot from the conversation.

I’ll be having some friends over tonight to watch the 150 lappers from Daytona and I’ll be hoping not to see The Big One or anything close to it. And the trucks race tomorrow too so a lot of us will be pulling for rookie Rico Abreu to do well as he starts an entire season of NASCAR racing.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a second generation driver who has a lot of good things going on in his life both on and off the racetrack.   Jordan McCreadie talks about his season at Mohawk International and Brockville Ontario Speedway, how close he is to getting that first dirt Modified win and how his family helps his racing efforts.  

Mike Walton talks about the advantage that lightweight parts can give a crate Sportsman. We chat about rear ends, transmissions, drive shafts, brakes and pulleys. Good stuff for you Sportsman teams here!!!
