New on the Audio Page for today

Mitch Gibbs talks about his season at I-88 Speedway and thinks back on his days before racing in the 70’s.
Jeff Hachmann goes over some specifics on Super DIRT Week at Oswego and the new show in Charlotte.

 I played catch up on Thursday and got a lot of things done at the house that I had been putting off. Now I am set and ready for some weekend racing starting tonight at Brewerton Speedway where I have not been in almost a month. It will be fun to get back and see everyone and catch some god old fashioned short track fun.

I will hit a track Saturday as once again Sunday is looking a little iffy. How can we continue to have bad weather on one single day of the week? It’s crazy right? Let’s hope the two tracks running this Sunday get a break as they could sure use one. And I’m sure the Utica Rome regulars could use some races to improve their NASCAR point standings. Keep your fingers crossed guys!

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page starting with one I know you’ll like. It’s just two guys who grew up in the 70’s chatting about how things used to be.   Mitch Gibbs talks about his season so far at I-88 Speedway, what he enjoys the most about the sport today and thinks back on his days before racing in the 70’s. Real god one here!  

Jeff Hachmann goes over some specifics on Super DIRT Week as they move to a new home at the Oswego Speedway and the new World Short Track Championship in Charlotte October 20th, 21st and 22nd.

Ryan Susice talks about his chances for a couple of championships and his three day weekend.
Rich Vleck previews the next Atomic Power Racing Hour featuring a four division show from Ohsweken.

I got alot done on Wednesday and was even able to sneak in 18 holes in between work. We started the day doing voice tracks for the next Atomic Power Racing Hour as we covered the Northern Crate Nationals from Ohsweken Speedway in Canada. This is a big four division show with a big name driver we know from NASCAR taking home the victory.

That new Atomic Power Racing Hour will begin airing next week on Time Warner Cable Sports in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Albany. And don’t forget that we also have back episodes on You Tube. Just type in Atomic Power Racing Hour and relive some of our best moments.I have a few people on my list to call today and will begin doing that later this afternoon.

 I plan on Friday at Brewerton but haven’t figured out Saturday or Sunday yet. The plan is to get in two shows this weekend and do one day in the studio. And the weather could be a factor so we’ll wait and see.

Now let’s talk more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today. Ryan Susice talks about his chances for a couple of championships at his Friday & Saturday homes, how his two Modifieds are different and looks ahead to a three day weekend that includes a Sprint Car race on Sunday in Weedsport.   

Rich Vleck previews the next Atomic Power Racing Hour featuring a four division Northern Crate Nationals show from Ohsweken Speedway in Canada with a special winner in the Sprint Car A-Main.

Alan Rudalavage talks about racing tonight at Woodhull Raceway and leading the points at Penn Can.
Brian McDonald tells me how he's doing at Mohawk International & Cornwall and his recent victory.

It was a stormy day on Tuesday for a lot of us and as I type this up the weather for the most part has left our area. All we got in Central New York were a few rumbles of thunder and a little rain so we made out pretty well. I hope you all weathered the storm well too and we all hope the rain was much needed and stuck around rather than sink immediately into the ground. We needed it badly.

I have two nice conversations for you today as we are still getting the hang of things here and if any of you are Word 2016 experts please get ahold of me as I still lose stuff and then can’t find it. I’ll get it but it does make me a little crazy sometimes.

I will be back in the studio again today and will get in some golf this afternoon before hitting the studio afterwards. It should make for a nice mix of work and play before the busy weekend gets here.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who is hoping to do something he has never done before. Alan Rudalavage talks about racing tonight at Woodhull Raceway in the Short Track Super Series event leading the points at Penn Can and his hopes for his first ever track championship.  

Brian McDonald tells me how he is doing at Mohawk International & Cornwall, his recent feature win and wonders if he might race his big block after the point races are complete.

In my latest edition of Doug’s Thoughts I look at the local points and talk about our studio upgrades.


I had a busy day on Monday as I wrote up a new column for the Syracuse Post Standard and did some voice tracks for the next Atomic Power Racing Hour. Today we will be doing the rest of the show and what a show it is coming from Ohsweken Speedway in Canada. It’s a four division show with a big name winning the big race in the end. Look for it soon on Time Warner Cable Sports.


As for my learning curve here I still cringe a certain times telling myself to keep calm as files appear and disappear for no apparent reason. It does get to me at times but I know in the long run that I will be fine I just need to be patient.


Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page with an overall view on where we are with just a few weeks to go in the regular season. In my latest edition of Doug’s Thoughts I look at the local points, talk about our studio upgrades while I learn new software and remind you all about one of our racing tomorrow night in the Camping World Truck Series race at Bristol.

After some last minute issues we are back in the new digs here but still have a lot to do as there are a few little things I need to get taken care of. We are not totally comfortable by any means and if something looks wrong today be sure to let me know with an email to doug@dougsdirtdiary.com.

I only did two new chats as I had some other things I had to get done just to get everything uploaded and into the computer in the first place. We’ll get better everyday I’m sure and we’ll be back up to full speed here any day.

Jessica Power updates me on how she has been doing at Fulton and back home at Cornwall.
Jonathon Carpenter tells me all about his Fight Night Street Stock and how he landed a good ride.

I am still learning the new system and need another day of time to do so. I saved a few interviews and out them up today so you could have some new stuff to listen to. If all goes well I should either be at a race today or in the new studio. One way or another I will do my best to get you new stuff for tomorrow

Also keep your fingers crossed for me as today is the first day that I will be working officially with my new computer and studio. I hate learning new things but am excited to be spending less time waiting for script errors and other slow downs that my old system was famous for. Wish me well.
