Matt DeLorenzo recaps his rookie season as a Promoter and talks about what’s on tap for 2015.
Joe “Geezer” Fanelli tells me how much fun he had racing a Late Model weekly at Grandview.
 
I had a busy day on Friday after a day off on Thursday…well a semi-day off at least. Today I promised my youngest daughter that we would be together all day and I would not be in the studio so I did some extra work on Friday to be able to do that.
 
A big thanks goes out to the people you see today and tomorrow as they helped me on Friday as I had to get at least four interviews done to be able to live up to my promise to Katie for today.
 
We have an action packed day planned as my wife and Allie are going to NYC on a bus tour. They’re seeing a show and going to Times Square. Heck, I’ve never been so maybe I need to work that into my plans. Maybe I can go to Yankee Stadium the next time the Royals are in town…hmm.
 
Now let’s chat more about the new stuff we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page starting with a run down of the season with a rookie promoter. Matt DeLorenzo recaps his rookie season as a Promoter and talks about what’s on tap for 2015. In part one he talks about his early struggles and how the place looks right now. 
 
Matt DeLorenzo in part two of the interview chats about some rule changes to Fonda in 2015, his own racing efforts for next year and highlights some upcoming dates. 
 
Joe “Geezer” Fanelli tells me how much fun he had racing a Late Model weekly at Grandview, thinks back on his season in a Sportsman and looks ahead to a return to the class in a championship car in 2015.

After a day off on Thursday I’ll be back in the studio today and looking to chat with more of you about what happened this past season as well as what you are thinking about for 2015.
 
To get in the mix yourself, either message me on facebook or send me an email to doug@dougsdirtdiary.com. I look forward to hearing you and for the snow to finally be over today. Although who am I kidding, at this time of the year I don’t mind it much at all.
 
Now let’s talk about what we have on the Audio Page for you to listen to today. Billy Pauch Jr. reviewed his 14 win season, talked about different racecars he drove in 2014 and described how far ahead he is right now in his shop thanks to a late season championship.

Chris Hile reviews his winning season in Central New York and looks ahead to a very special day.
 
Wednesday was quite an adventurous day in our area as we got our first significant snowfall of the season. It started early Wednesday morning and as I type this up at 8 p.m. it is going strong again after a little slowdown at dinner time.
 
Yes, you know me, I did get around and do some driving in this stuff as I do love it so. Thanks to my Cooper snow tires from Kinney Kar Kare in Oneida. If you were slipping and sliding around and are thinking about new snow tires give Ned a call and he’ll take good care of you. Tell him Doug sent ya!
 
We have two nice ones up today as we find out why Tim Fuller will be back with us in the Modified world for the first time since 2007. And I did turn this one into a column so be sure to look for it at www.syracuse.com/motorsports. Plus we have a nice Season in Review with Modified racer Chris Hile too.
 
So sit down and get comfortable on this cold winter day as I tell you more about what you can listen to today on the Audio Page. I start with some news!

Jimmy Horton reviews his championship season and talked about an encounter with a legend.
Rich Keller talks IMCA Modifieds and what he will do now that he has lost his Friday home.
 
Well here’s to hoping you all don’t get too much of Mother Nature as it could be an adventurous day for some of us. Here in the middle of New York they are saying we could get as little as 4 inches and at most a foot. The real number is probably somewhere in the middle.
 
I know a lot of school age kids are hoping for a day off today and yes, my kids are in that boat for sure. We’ve been lucky so far in our neck of the woods and who knows, maybe it will skirt us and I can keep the snowblower in the garage for yet another day. One way or another we wish you all the best.
 
I’ve got some real good stuff today including a real nice one with racing veteran Jimmy Horton. We did the full Season in Review chat and I know you’ll like this one as there are some great stories in there including one about A.J. Foyt. Wow!

And be sure to come back tomorrow for another Season and Review, this time with local racer Chris Hile, as well as a chat with Tim Fuller as gets ready to return to racing Modifieds here in Centrel New York. It's an interview you won't want to miss.
 
Now let’s go into more detail on the good stuff we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page starting with the man they call Mr. Excitement. Jimmy Horton reviews his championship season at Bridgeport, his travels that included a hard crash at Syracuse and talked about an encounter with a legend in his NASCAR days. Real good one here! 
 
Rich Keller talks about IMCA Modifieds, why he likes the division so much and what he will do now that he has lost his Friday home.

Rick Martell recapped the Indoor Championships and tells me how smoothly everything went.
 
I had a pretty good day on Sunday as I got some work done and finished things out watching the Syracuse 200 on CBS Sports. It was fun to watch that with Allie and remember the fun we had at Super DIRT Week. I hope you all enjoyed it too.
 
On the site we have a recap of the NYS Indoor Championships that were held this past weekend inside the Center of Progress Building at the New York State Fairgrounds. I guess things went very well from what I am hearing and it was nice to see Chad Homan pick up a win in one of his three races.
 
He’ll be my story for Tuesday as I remind fans about his big crash and how big it was for him to finish out 2014 with a big win. What a nice story. And if any of you had a great weekend on the concrete or just want to tell your story, email me at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com and we’ll take care of that right away.
