   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Ronnie Davis III reflects on his Sportsman championship and the recent growth of the division.
Jim Graham has been out of racing for a few years and talked about coming back in a 4 cylinder.
 
The work week is well underway and I need to get back into the studio today after a slow day on Monday. It was the final night of bowling and with the way my knees and back have been I always try to take it easy preferring to work on the weekend instead of Monday. Now let’s hope the snow melts quickly so we can golf next Monday…maybe not huh?
 
We have our final chats from the area’s final mall show of the season and now the teams have to get busy. Depending on where you are running, you may have to be ready to go this weekend. For most teams in our area, next weekend will be the one to get ready for so let the snow keep melting and we’ll be ready for racing and maybe some golf.
 
Now let’s chat about what we have for you today on the Audio Page on a Tuesday. Ronnie Davis III reflects on his Sportsman championship, the recent growth of the division and how many opportunities there are to race all across Central New York. 
 
Jim Graham has been out of racing for a few years and talked about coming back in a 4 cylinder as well as the growth he is seeing in the division.

We had a fun day as my oldest daughter Allie had her all district orchestra concert at the high school. They sounded great and a lot of proud parents showed their appreciation including us. My dad was also able to go so it was nice to have all of us there.
 
After that I got to work updating the website through Tuesday and then enjoyed some time outside on a day that seemed a lot warmer than 38 degrees. Also Indy Car started their season yesterday, another omen of spring and several motorcycles were seen on the road. Yeah, we’re getting closer guys so get ready!
 
Later today we bowl for a championship as our team won the second half of the league. We are bowling the team with the best bowlers in the league so the best team will win. Wish us luck!
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a few chats from the Utica Rome Open House. Brett Wright told me about his racing background as he gets ready for the move to a big block and described the moment when he realized he was going to race with the big boys.

Brandon Ford shows off a Sportsman they just picked up and talked about running two divisions.
Earl Doupe talks about the options young racers and their families have to get a career started.
 
I had some fun on Saturday as I went to the Great Northern Mall in Clay to see some racecars that will call the Brewerton and Fulton Speedways home this year. Plus there were a few Micro Sprints, the two seat Supermodified as well as Microds and Quarter Midgets.
 
I recorded a handful of interviews and put three of those up for today. I’ll be back with three more tomorrow and at least two on Tuesday. I urge you to get to the mall today to see the cars and partake in some business. We ate at the food court and did some shopping at two of the stores while telling them we were there for the racecars.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Jack Miller talked about his plans to return to the open Sportsman class and why he is coming back.
Kyle Kiehn spoke about his season in a crate powered car and how tough it was in the open class.
 
Slow day for me on Friday as I was a little off. But fortunately I had some interviews left that I had done Thursday night at the Utica Rome Speedway Open House to run today. As a matter of fact I have a few more too so look for those to show up soon.
 
Today I will be at the mall show at Great Northern Mall in Clay to see some cars and hopefully chat with some drivers. I should be there before dinner time so be ready guys and gals and let’s chat about what we are going to do this season.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who wasn’t sure if he was going to be racing this year or not. Jack Miller talked about his plans to return to the open Sportsman class, why he is coming back and wonders if he may run a few crate races as well. 
 
Kyle Kiehn spoke about his season in a crate powered car, how tough it was to be underpowered in the open class and how much he is looking forward to racing with one particular driver.

   New on the Audio Page from the Utica Rome Speedway Open House:
 
Matt Janczuk explains why he is moving to a 602 crate Sportsman after a season running Modified.
A.J. Filbeck remembers a tough season in 2014 and tells me why he will run a 602 Sportsman.
Bill Trexler tells me how he will keep a family tradition going by starting his career in a stock car.
 
I had a good time on Thursday night as I went to the Utica Rome Speedway Open House. Many drivers were there to get their NASCAR paperwork done so they can cruise through the line on opening day. I spoke with 7 drivers and put 3 of those up for today. Look for the rest to show up over the next few days.
 
To say the mood was optimistic would be an understatement. New owners Bill & Kim Shea were there as well as former owner Gene Cole. Officials were on hand to answer questions and the NASCAR people brought some gear to give away. All in all it was a lot of fun.
 
Today I’ll be in the studio and tomorrow I’ll be at the Great Northern Mall in Clay to see cars that will be running at the Brewerton and Fulton Speedways. So look for audio from that to be up on Sunday.
 
Now let’s chat about what we have on the Audio Page starting with a pair of drivers who are moving to what is the “it division” right now. Matt Janczuk explains why he is moving to a 602 crate Sportsman after a season running Modified and how the move makes good financial sense. 
 
A.J. Filbeck remembers a tough season in 2014 and tells me why he will run a 602 Sportsman instead of the open motor variety he has run the past few seasons. 
 
Bill Trexler tells me how he will keep a family tradition going by starting his career in a stock car just like his dad and grandfather did. Nice!

Billy Pauch Sr. explains why he had to cancel his weekend plans and wonders about next weekend.
Tony Veneziano reports on the last weekend’s World of Outlaw Sprint Car races in California.
 
It was a cold and rainy day on Wednesday. It was a good day to stay inside and get some work done as the snow continues to melt. I did just that and have a new column to show for it in today’s Syracuse Post Standard and online at www.syracuse.com.
 
On the site today we have a pair of nice interviews for you. I don’t know about you but I did not know about Billy Pauch Sr.’s rib injury. If you have never broken a rib I can tell you that it hurts like the devil. So if you see Billy, don’t tell him any jokes as laughing, coughing and sneezing are quite painful…let alone trying to contort yourself to get into a Modified. We wish Billy all the best and hope he can make it to New Egypt’s opener on April 4th.
 
Plus we’ll update you on the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series as they continue their west coast swing. Fortunately the tracks they have been to in California have been warm and dry for the most part. Now if we can only get a little bit of that to come our way.
 
Tonight I’ll be heading out to Vernon for Utica Rome Speedway’s open house. Race teams can buy their NASCAR licenses, find out about rule changes, buy Hoosier Tires and meet new owners Bill & Kim Shea. The event runs from 6-9 p.m. Hope to see you there!
 
Let’s chat now about what we have for you on the Audio Page for you today. Billy Pauch Sr. explains why he had to cancel his weekend plans to get his season started locally and wonders if his ribs will be ready for next weekend’s opener at New Egypt. Get well soon Billy!
 
Tony Veneziano reports on the last weekend’s World of Outlaw Sprint Car races in California including a controversial finish and another win for Rico Abreu.

Today we are back with some updates on a pair of local speedways and a reminder for those of you who plan on running Utica Rome. Both of these are real good and I hope you enjoy them.
 
Tomorrow we’ll be back with Billy Pauch Sr. who will tell us why he won’t be racing this weekend and we’ll get an update on the west coast swing for the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series from our friend Tony Veneziano.
 
And for fans locally the Great Northern Mall will be hosting a car show this weekend with racecars on display that will be running at Fulton and Brewerton Speedways. As always, show your race colors if you are going and support the mall with your buying dollars.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page today starting with a pair of updates from two local speedways. Bill Shea talks about Utica Rome Speedway’s Open House coming up this Thursday from 6-9 p.m., describes how the speedway looks and his hopes to meet with more drivers.
