Well let’s all hope that white stuff we saw falling from the sky on Friday is the last of that we’ll see for at least seven months or so. Today should be good and tomorrow should be better so let’s move forward and say goodbye to snow…please!
 
More good stuff up today including news on a schedule change in Canandaigua. Plus Bret Belden will turn things around at the end of his interview to grill me about what I have going on this year. Don’t miss them.
 
And of course we’ll be back at work today before the Final Four later tonight which Allie and I will be watching. Plus we have no favorites left which makes it more fun to watch some times. I hope you all have a great Saturday and for those of you who are racing today, have fun and be safe please!
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page beginning with one of my first friends in racing from back on the Outlaw Circuit.

I am planning on Utica Rome for their practice in Sunday and even though that forecast keeps changing the latest one sounds good so we’ll see.

I had a nice day off on Tuesday but still got some work done as I just can’t sit around and do nothing. Darned ADHD. But boy do we have some good stuff for you today as we visit with two drivers who raced this past weekend in New Jersey and another driver who has a lot of work to do.
 
You know me. We do our own thing here paying no attention whatsoever as to what everyone else is doing. If you wanna get to know the drivers that get it and see what makes them tick, this is the place to be. No trying to dig up dirt where it may not exist, just the drivers telling you firsthand what is going on in their racing lives. Yep, just what I want it to be!

Well that was quite the Aprils Fool’s Day joke Mother Nature pulled on us huh? Snow was on the ground for most of us in New York State and some had close to a foot of the white stuff. We got off fairly easy as we only had a few inches and it was melted off the driveway by just after lunch time. Whew!
 
I was very busy on Monday as lately that seems to be the best day to catch people. I have some news up today and will have lots more up tomorrow including another bonus clip. And we’re hoping to hit a pair of practices this weekend so I can get my first whiff of race fuel.

Mike Bowman updates me on the cars he is working on for both him and his wife to drive this season.
Tanner Harpell talks about Saturday’s practice at 5 Mile Point and looks ahead to Saturday’s opener.

I had a nice day on Sunday as I had a visit with an old friend, watched some great NCAA basketball and then got to work in the studio. I’ll be back at it again before our last night of bowling on Tuesday and I already have some cool things set up.
 
Allie has been taking advantage of her learner’s permit and has been driving a lot. She is catching on pretty fast and clearly the time racing a Microd here in Syracuse for two seasons has certainly made this a lot easier. Thank you Syracuse Microd and Quarter Midget Clubs as she has laps in all of them. You’ve made this next transition a lot easier.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we begin with a chat with one of the few drivers I know who can chat racing with his wife after they both race on the same night.

It was another beautiful day on Saturday and all the rain they predicted stayed away for the most part. I got out again, did some walking and enjoyed a very nice day. Yay!
 
I did get some work done and will be working hard today as I need to load up here in the studio. I hope everything went well for those of you who either raced or practiced on Saturday and I hope the car did what it was supposed to and didn’t cost you any extra money. I know…I can always hope.
