   New on the Audio Page from Super DIRT Week in the order they were recorded in:

Justin Haers remembered last season at SDW and told me how his day was going on Wednesday.
Tyler Siri talked about the season at Outlaw Speedway and reminded fans of the upcoming show.
Billy Colton explained how instrumental Peter Britten was in the design of the latest Troyer Car.
Alan Johnson showed off a pair of Modifieds in Oswego and thought back on his last SDW win.

Matt Farnham was the fastest Sportsman on the day and told me about doing some extra work.

Tom Deery recaps the first day of Super DIRT Week including the parade and the track surface.
Tim McCreadie sat atop the chart for the big blocks and talked about his big goal for today.

Day one of Super DIRT Week is complete at Oswego Speedway and outside of the rain that shortened the modified practice it could not have gone better. The track was smooth, not dusty at all and everyone seemed generally quite pleased as to how things went. You could not have hoped for a better start.
 
Billy Decker, Matt Farnham and Tim McCreadie set fast times in the practice and this afternoon the clocks will be turning for real with time trials for the big block and small block divisions. Of course small blocks go first as they have a show tonight at Brewerton Speedway and unfortunately last night’s show in Weedsport was rained out.

I got a lot of interviews and did two Facebook Live hits. No, I don’t show racing I just want to get all of you who are not at the event into your cars to come up. So all that Facebook Live stuff is just going to be a tease and a reminder to come up to this show and support Racing’s Biggest Party!

I’ll get there right as the morning practice ends and will be there till the end of time trials. I’ll probably do a live hit when I get there but it should be my only one as I don’t do results. You’ve got to be there for that!
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page from the first day of action on the clay at The Steel Palace. Corey Barker, Todd Root and Alan Fink talked about their start to Super DIRT Week on day one as they got ready for some practice laps later in the day. 

Tim McCreadie spoke about his success on the Lucas Oil Late Model Tour, where he’ll race with the series this weekend and the need to get locked into the top six in time trials. 

Justin Haers remembered last season at SDW and told me how his day was going on Wednesday as well as what the goals were for the first practice session. 

Tyler Siri talked about the season at Outlaw Speedway, reminded fans of the upcoming show in two weeks and commented on his season behind the wheel as a Modified racer. 

Billy Colton explained how instrumental Peter Britten was in the design of the latest Troyer Car and encouraged teams racing Troyers to stop by their booth at Oswego Speedway for some advice. 

Alan Johnson showed off a pair of Modifieds in Oswego and thought back on his last SDW win while talking about the types of racetracks he likes to race on. 

Sam Reakes IV told me about his ride for Super DIRT Week, what he likes about Oswego Speedway and remembers when he raced on the asphalt one time at the track. 

Billy Decker set fast time for the 358 practice with the fastest lap of the day at 20.167 and talked about the track he was on and the one issue they had to look at. 

Rick Eshelman watched practice with me in turn one and offered his early take on the race surface while talking about his role this weekend in victory lane. 

Ryan Godown offered his first take on the surface he saw as he ran his first ever laps at Oswego and told me what he liked about the configuration of this racetrack. 

Matt Farnham was the fastest Sportsman on the day and told me about doing some extra work they did to get ready and the race they had to miss to be 100% ready.  
 
Kearra Backus reacted to her first laps at Oswego and talked about some changes she had to make to how she enters the corner as well as how happy she is to be a part of it. 

Tom Deery recaps the first day of Super DIRT Week including the parade that stated the day, the smooth track surface and how well everyone did getting in and settled. 

Tim McCreadie sat atop the chart for the big blocks and talked about why he wanted to have a few more laps his big goal for today as he tried to lock himself in for Sunday.   
 
Wednesday, October 4th 2017
   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Tim Kerr has struggled a little this year and told me why things haven’t gone as well in 2017.
Rusty Smith explained what he did to solve a motor issue and how things have gone since then.
Mike Dougherty Jr. talked about his season at Penn Can and explained why he only ran six shows.
A.J. Kingsley told me about his mid season surgery and how much better he feels right now.

Today it all begins in Oswego. The parade of racecars through the streets of the Port City kicks off the day at noon and then at 3 p.m. the cars hit the track for the first official hot laps of Super DIRT Week. I’ll be there to get lots of audio and if you are a friend of mine on Facebook you’ll also get a live report somewhere along the way as well.
 
But that live report will not include any on track action as I do not believe it is right to do so. Facebook live does cost track owners fans and money so I encourage you not to do that this week. If you had the right friends you could stay home and watch without paying a dime. It is gonna ruin the sport…trust me! So post responsibly guys and girls.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we get ready to start racing biggest party. Tim Kerr has struggled a little this year and told me why things haven’t gone as well in 2017 as well as the adjustments he had to make for sail panels this past weekend. 

Rusty Smith explained what he did to solve a motor issue, how easy it was to fix once they found out what the problem was and how things have gone since then.

Mike Dougherty Jr. talked about his season at Penn Can and explained why he only ran six shows as well as the nice turnaround he saw at his Friday home. 

A.J. Kingsley told me about his mid season surgery, explained what it was like and how much better he feels right now after losing a lot of weight. You look great A.J. Wish you all the best!

I did get some stuff together for you today and will be back in the studio today to get you more.

 I had to curt my day short on Saturday but I got a lot done in the time I was there. Sportsman were the big story ion Saturday as well over 100 were in the pit area as well as Mods, Mod Lites, Late Models and Four cylinders. Wow! What a jammed up pit area it was.
Like I said I got a call and had to leave but I’m not going to get into why here.

Today of course in the Outlaw 200 and it should be a dandy. That many laps with a 40 plus car starting field makes for some great racing. And Fulton’s surface is always changing so make your plans to come out now and enjoy a great race.
 
I’ll be racing with Allie as she has two races to go. They start a little earlier so I may be able to make it to Fulton tonight but I have some work to do afterwards too so we’ll have to see. If not, I’ve got a lot of extra stuff I recorded yesterday that I can put up.

Well that didn’t work out did it? A light rain greeted teams at Fulton Speedway on Friday night and once it picked up and with lots more on the radar management was forced to pull the plug. Now Friday’s show will be run today and the Outlaw 200 will be pushed back to Sunday.

Today the gates will open at 1 p.m. and 11 a.m. on Sunday. I’ll post a revised schedule below so you guys can see it.

I am doing a little project on her similar to the racing pieces Nickelodeon did with Dale Earnhardt’s granddaughter. It should be fun!
 
I’ll be at Fulton Speedway today and hoping Mother Nature gets any moisture she has out of her system early so we can race all night long.
