New on the Audio Page for today:

Lance Willix tells me about his season at Cornwall and on the road with the 358 series.
Ernie Saxton talks about NASCAR’s new sponsor, a surprising F1 retirement and much more.

We have close to an hour of stuff for you to listen to today with a pair of conversations from different end of the spectrum. We have a Season in Review with a driver who won for the first time on dirt since the mid 2000’s and of course lots of stuff from all over with our friend and AARN Columnist Ernie Saxton.

Lots of good stuff will be coming out this week as news from PRI gets around and we’ll do the best we can to cover that for you as it happens. There are still a lot of questions out there and hopefully answers will be coming soon.

And be sure to come back tomorrow as we get the latest on the World of Outlaw Sprint Cars and do a Season in Review with a Modified track champion. It will be a fun day for you so be sure to come back for that. And if we haven’t gotten to your favorite driver yet just send me a message and we’ll get it done for you.

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

Lance Willix tells me about his two win season at Cornwall, how he did on the road with the 358 series and his rough night at Oswego during Super DIRT Week.  

Ernie Saxton talks about NASCAR’s new sponsor, a surprising F1 retirement and much more as we jump all over the racing landscape both local & national.

Ross Spilman walks me around Great Bear Indoor Kartway and talks about the opener Dec 18th.
In this Doug’s Thoughts I speak about some news that has come out this past week or so.

I had a nice day on Saturday as I spent some time with friends and then headed up to check out the new indoor karting track just south of Fulton. This is really going to be something and the building it is in is much bigger than the photos you have seen online. The track looks racy and it will be ready for a first go around one week today.

I have a big day set for today as I will be doing a lot as Sundays seem to be the best day to track people down on. Last Sunday I got six interviews done and I hope to get close to that today. Racers, if you are free today send me a message and we’ll talk.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with news on a new track that will open in seven days. Ross Spilman walks me around Great Bear Indoor Kartway and talks about the opener Dec 18th as well as how things will work during these first few weeks of action.

   New on the Audio Page for today:

Pete Stefanski talks about his Utica Rome championship and Pro Stock racing in NY State.

I have only one for you today but it is a real good one as we discuss stock car racing. I did have a few other things set up but weather has pushed that back to today as both the peope I chatted with had plow runs they had to make.

I will be back in the studio today and back buying some new equipment as we have had a few breakages here in the studio. We have some bills out to sponsors and hopefully they will come in soon as we are a little behind here. I know, you too! No worries, we’ll be fine as we always are.

I will be in the studio later today and tonight as I hope to get a lot done and hope to make a trip to Best Buy as well. We’ll be back on track soon so keep coming back as we continue to look back at the season that was while looking ahead to 2017.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as we wait for the snow to wind down today. Pete Stefanski talks about his Utica Rome championship in 2016, the state Pro Stock racing in New York and wonders about going on the road to follow the series again someday.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Brian Shuey tells me about getting back behind the wheel after four years off from racing.
Tim Mayne reviews his 2016 season racing at big block Modified at Utica Rome Speedway.

I had a busy day and just got some work done before I started to get nervous. I got lucky as a driver I got ahold of Sunday was available on Thursday and I caught another drier right after dinner time and did a nice Season in Review with him.

My card reader died as a pin bent but I got lucky and had a back up ready to go. Plus my program where I upload my content to our server in California was slow and I was not sure if it was going to work or not. Yeah, it was that kind of a day alright.

Today I will be in the studio in the afternoon as Allie has an event later tonight that hopefully will not fall victim to the lake effect snow. I hope all of you are alright as I see some areas are getting hit pretty hard today and even into tomorrow.

Now tomorrow I may get to see that new indoor go-cart track just south of Fulton and if I do I will have something up for you tomorrow from that so be sure to come back.

Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page for you today starting with a driver who was happy be put the suit back on this past season. Brian Shuey tells me about getting back behind the wheel after four years off from racing, what changed in that time and how things went running a Late Model at Grandview.  

Tim Mayne reviews his 2016 season racing at big block Modified at Utica Rome Speedway, remembers the night he was up front and leading and wonders if he’ll run an additional track in 2017.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Denny Peebles talked about his kart heat win and a problem he had in the early laps.
Brian Meyers reviews his 2016 season at Brewerton that saw him finish 8th in Mod Lite points.

I had a busy day as things away from racing kept me hopping pretty much all day long. I did do a new article for the Syracuse Post Standard and Syracuse.com so be sure to look for that and we do have a pair of interviews up for you today as well.

I do need to get busy today after some afternoon activities and of course we’ll be following what is happening at PRI in Indy as the World of Outlaws have a major announcement set for today at 3 p.m. What that announcement may be is a good question as even my sources are in the dark as to what it might be. We’ll find out later today.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who returned to his first love this past weekend. Denny Peebles talked about his kart heat win at Syracuse, a problem he had in the early laps and how the off season has been treating him as he prepared to race against his brother.   

Brian Meyers reviews his 2016 season at Brewerton that saw him finish 8th in Mod Lite points and tells me about some part failures that hindered them along the way as well as his racing background.

We’ll be back working again today and already have one in the can with Mod Lite racer Brian Meyers as he tells me about season three at Brewerton.

If I have not gotten your favorite driver yet send me a message on facebook or at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com and we’ll get right on it. Big weekend is coming up with the PRI show in Indy so look for a lot of news to come out starting next week. The silly season is in full form.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Jeff Rockefeller recaps his one win season and tells me about one night that sticks in his mind.
Jeff Peebles tells me about Saturday’s heat win at Syracuse and his little brother’s racecar.
Ross Spilman talks about a new indoor clay kart track set to open in the next few weeks.

I got a lot done on Monday as we wrote up a new column for the Syracuse Post Standard/Syracuse.com and put up some new audio for you guys as well. I also got some business done and made a few phone calls that I needed to catch up on as we get closer to the big holiday.

I start with a Season in Review and end with news on a new track being constructed indoors just south of Fulton. This could really be a big boost to the Kart world as this would allow people to race all year long which could end up boosting car counts. Then the local big tracks could get more drivers and the racing here in our area could keep getting bigger and better. Yep! It’s all good!

Today I will be off from work but still have some calls to make before Tuesday night bowling (which I now suck at by the way) and Tuesday night online racing. If one of you guys wants to stop by and check it out some Tuesday just let me konw as it is my favorite day of the week in the off season. Well except for the bowling thing although we hope to do better tonight.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page for today. Jeff Rockefeller recaps his one win season and tells me about one night that sticks in his mind as well as what is thinking about as he gets ready for 2017.    

Jeff Peebles tells me about Saturday’s heat win at Syracuse and his little brother’s Sprint Car and why he just got back into karting after 15 years off thanks to Kevin Ward Sr.  

Ross Spilman talks about a new indoor clay kart track just south of Fulton that is set to open in the next few weeks and runs down what his plans are for the facility. Check out Great Bear Indoor Kartway on Facebook to see how it looks as of this past weekend.
