Donnie Lawson re-caps his season at Outlaw and Woodhull as well as on the road with GRIT.
Dean Catlin talks about changes at Skyline for 2018 including a move to Saturday night racing.

That ended up being quite the storm on Friday night into Saturday morning. We got close to a foot of new snow and it was that sand like quality which made it feel like a lot more. Thanks to whoever invented the snowblower. You saved me!
 
I got a lot done on Saturday before calling it a night to watch some racing and I hope to get as much done or even more today. I hope all you racers are doing well and I hope the Chili Bowl got you fired up and ready to get that shop work done for 2018.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as we start with a man who won in two different classes in 2018.

Keith Flach tells me about the new member of their household and talks about his 4 win season.

It’s gonna get crazy today and depending on where you live it may already be that way by the time you read this. Ice and snow are coming and it sounds like the perfect day to stay home, watch the Chili Bowl and relax. I know that’s what I’ll be doing.
 
Before that though I will be in the studio getting new interviews done for you guys as we continue to creep close to the official start of the season. We are hoping for a safe night in Oklahoma and hoping for some great racing.

Mike Button talked about a frustrating 2017 season and the chassis change he is making for 2018.
Ivan Joslin told me about his six win Pro Stock season and compared his two weekly racetracks.

I had a fun day on Thursday watching the snow melt just in time to see it change later today. The forecasts for this weekend are all over the place so we’ll wait and watch to see what happens. A part of me thinks they tout these weather events for ratings so you never really know do you?
 
I got some new interviews done around dinner time and will be back doing more today and Saturday afternoon. I hope all of you have your plans to watch the Chili Bowl and let’s hope for a fun, safe race. I wonder how this show does compared to other racing events don’t you? I wonder if it might beat some NASCAR races.

All eyes still on Tulsa this week with the 32nd Annual Chili Bowl and I know you all are looking forward to watching it Saturday night. I’m sure some of you are watching on line too. Allie and I will be watching Saturday night on MAV-TV and rooting on our favorites. Hope you are too.

Well we’re finally back in the studio with our new phone box and back in business. It ended up coming at the end of the day as I was already starting to put together a back up plan. The people at the local post office were great and bent over backwards to help me. Thank you so much.
 
It was a balmy 38 degrees here on Monday and they are calling for rain and temperatures close to 50 in a few days. That’s alright by me as I would love to see some of that snow melt. It’s getting pretty high out there.

In the latest Doug’s Thoughts I talk about life after DIRT and how we got the idea for this website.

It finally quit snowing here at the home studio and it is quite the winter wonderland out there. Snow banks are high and the whir of snowblowers filled the air as people dug out after 2 ½ days of snow.

I did my clean up in the afternoon and then did some running around before doing a household repair. I fixed a door. Well, not fixed but works for now. Any of you experts in this area? If so call me as I could really use some help. Those of you who know me know that tools and I don’t get along. Maybe that is one of the reasons I respect all you racers so much.

I am hopeful that my new phone box arrives today as the tracking info is telling me and I can get back to interviews here in the studio. I should also be doing a facebook live soon so those of you who are friends of mine there can see. If you have not send me a friend request please do so as I will be using that a lot this year for all kinds of things.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we talk about life after DIRT and the start of another new chapter. In the latest Doug’s Thoughts I talk about life after DIRT in 2006, why I needed to get out of the booth in the tower and how we got the idea for this website.
