Austin Dillon talked about last weekend in New Hampshire and previews Sunday in Dover.
Bill Shea previews Tuesday’s race at Utica Rome and talked about 358’s and the new clay.

I had a fun day on Wednesday as I chatted with Austin Dillon, did some writing and went and saw Dean Reynolds for a new phone. It scares me now as it is very intimidating but I am excited to finally have a phone that is up to speed on what I need it to do.
 
Make sure if you have not friended me on facebook to do so as we’ll be doing a lot of Facebook Live things here in the future. I am working on a lot of things behind the scenes too so be ready for lots of new stuff on different platforms down the road. It’s exciting!
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting out with another NASCAR racer who is hoping to keep his championship hopes alive with a strong run this Sunday. Austin Dillon talked about last weekend’s 19th place in New Hampshire, previews Sunday’s Monster Energy Cup race in Dover and explains why he likes the track so much. 

Bill Shea previews this Tuesday’s races at Utica Rome, recalled how the idea came about to run 358’s at Utica Rome & Fulton and the new clay he will be putting down real soon.

I had an enjoyable and productive day on Tuesday as I got a lot done and had some fun doing some on-line racing at the end of the day. I’ll be back in the studio today as the can is empty and I’ll be doing some writing as well as Fulton’s big race is this weekend. Plus the Outlaws are going to be in Willliams Grove for a three day show to take in the Pa. Posse. Upset specials here we come!

This weekend I’ll be at Fulton Speedway both days and then back racing with Allie on Sunday. I’ll be all over the place tomorrow as I have a lot to do and I hope to see a lot of you this weekend at what is my favorite one day show of the year.

Wow! What a scorcher we had on Monday. My thermometer on the porch outside the studio actually read over 100 degrees at mid-afternoon. I know the sun warmed it but wow what a day. Official high temp was 91. Thank you Mother Nature for giving us a few extra weeks of summer. Keep it up!
 
We have a feature winner from the weekend up today as well as a young racer who you will be hearing a lot from down the road as well as another racer who is recovering from an on track incident. Get well soon Adam. And tomorrow we’ll be back with more so be sure to show up and be ready to listen.
 
I’ve got a fairly easy day on tap today as I need to get a few things done in the afternoon and then finish out the day with some on-line racing as I do every Tuesday. It’s a semi-day off from racing and I look forward to it every week.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a racer who picked up a serious check on Saturday night.

Mike White told me about his recent Pro Stock wins and why he did not race this past weekend.
Brandon Clapperton explained why he is moving up for 2018 and how his season went in a truck.

Wow was it hot again on Sunday or what? Hot is one thing but hot at an asphalt track is another thing altogether. It may take days for me to recover.
 
Big thanks to the Kuleszos as always and to Jim Olin for all his help. With my back still hurting he came in and did the heavy stuff that I could not do and worked with Allie during the race. Thanks so much Jim. Without you I would not have been able to race with Allie period. Thank you!
 
It was a rough day for a few of us but at least we were at the track and we still had fun hanging out and trading war stories. We hope to be back this Sunday after a pair of days in Fulton on Friday and Saturday.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we start out another work week.

Pete Stefanski told me about his season ender at Ransomville and his Pro Stock plans for Oswego.
J.J. Courcy talked about racing today at Glen Ridge and his Pro Stock plans for Super DIRT Week.

I had a really fun day on Saturday and hope it rolls right into today as we race again with my daughter and the Kuleszo Race Team at the NYS Fairgrounds in Syracuse. There are only a few weeks to go and we’re hoping for a good finish today where we can roll the car onto the trailer at the end of the day. Yep. That’s where we’re at these days.

It’s been a great experience for her as she’s learned a lot. Life is a lot like running a 25 lap feature. Don’t think too much about the corner you just did right or wrong. Learn from what you did but stay focused on the next turn not the last. Be aware that you’re running 25 laps but stay focused on what’s next.

After today’s race we’ll get back to the home studio and if it’s not too late get back into the studio. One way or another we have more good stuff for you tomorrow so be sure to keep checking back every day as things are gonna get real intense really fast!
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for you as we check in with some folks who still have some big races to go.  Eddie White explained how he got a crate engine in his Sportsman, how he did in the two races he ran it and when he plans to get it out again.

Shaun Pangman tells me about this weekend’s plans and looks ahead to running at Super DIRT Week.
Steve Ovens previews tonight’s race at Woodhull and looks ahead to a two day show next weekend.

I was a very busy boy on Friday as I got six new interviews done in the studio. It was a really fun day as I spent a lot of time off the mic with everyone I spoke with. It was great…really!
 
Today I get together with an old friend who is in town for a few days as we will re-live our wild days back in the early to mid 80’s. We were two single guys, making great money in the factory at GE and lived in his brand new house. To say we have fun would be a gross understatement. It will be fun to reminisce today indeed.
 
Tomorrow we race at the NYS Fairgrounds with Allie and I may need a little help as my back will not allow me to do as much as I usually do. I looked into getting a Go Pro for this weekend but by the time you buy everything you need you’re over $500. Guess that will have to wait.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page on a big racing Saturday starting with a young man you’ll surely be hearing more about in the coming years. Dominic Scelzi talks about his recent World of Outlaw Sprint Car races, growing up with the NHRA on the road with his dad Gary Scelzi and how he got interested in Sprints instead of dragsters.

Bobby Varin tells me about his pair of wins last weekend and looks ahead to two days at Fonda.
Taylor Caprara reminds racers about Can Am’s Saturday practice taking place from 2 p.m. till dusk.

I got a lot done on Thursday as I spent a lot of time in the studio. I plan to do the same today as I have a busy weekend away from racing. A good friend is in town on Saturday so we’ll see he and his wife before we race with Allie on Sunday.
 
Somehow I woke up with a messed up back. I’m hoping it gets better soon but Thursday was not a fun day at all. I kept busy which helped but every time I got up out of my chair I was reminded that my back was not up to speed.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for today on the Audio Page as the season winds down here in the northeast.  Bobby Varin tells me about his pair of wins last weekend at Albany Saratoga & Fonda and looks ahead to two days at Fonda this weekend with Mods and Sprints both on the card.  

Taylor Caprara reminds racers about Can Am’s Saturday practice taking place from 2 p.m. till dusk and the work he is doing to get ready for some late season 358 Modified events.
