New on the Audio Page for today:

Jimmy Phelps runs down the schedule for 2020 in Weedsport and the new Cavalcade Cup Weekend.
Scott Gauthier reviews his 8 win season with the DMNT and talks about the new tracks he raced on.

I got a lot done on Friday as I was able to knock out another three interviews in the studio. I am now set through Sunday but want to get two more days of content before we begin our own Season in Review so if you wanna get in message me as we are almost at that point.

It is so hard to believe that another year has almost gone by and within the next few days I’ll have my own reflections on the season that was and answer some of my own questions. How’s that? So look for that to show up Christmas Eve as that will be our last day of new stuff before we begin our look back at the season that was on this website.

Now let’s chat more about what you can listen to today on the Audio Page beginning with news from one of the premier dirt tracks in the country. Jimmy Phelps runs down the schedule for 2020 in Weedsport, explains why some changes were made to some traditional dates as well as the new Cavalcade Cup Weekend in September. 

Scott Gauthier reviews his 8 win season with the DMNT and talks about how a violent flip altered his season as well as how much he enjoyed racing at some track he had not raced on before.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Gary Folk updates un on the Penn Can Speedway meeting and we both share Mike Colsten stories.
Mike Welch reviews his 2019 season driving both Pro Stock & Street Stock as well as his other job.

We’re back again today after a somewhat busy day on Thursday. We had a little snow to deal with here but once again Mother Nature has spared us with only a glancing blow. We’ve been lucky so far but as all of us know that luck is bound to come back around and bite me so I’ll enjoy it while I can.

I did three more interviews and set up a few more for today so that means we will still have new stuff for a few more days anyways. I’m thinking about starting the best of 2019 interviews on Christmas Day but we’ll see how that goes.

Now let’s tell you more about what is on the Audio Page for today starting with news from Northern Pennsylvania. Gary Folk updates un on the Penn Can Speedway rules meeting from last Sunday, tells me how much they got done to the facility before it got too cold and then we both share Mike Colsten stories. We’re praying for you and your family my friend! 

Mike Welch reviews his 2019 season driving both Pro Stock & Street Stock, how one problem may have cost him a pair of race wins an shared his perspective on what it is like to have one of the toughest jobs in racing. You couldn’t pay me enough to do job that Mike!

New on the Audio Page for today:

Danny Bouc reviewed his winning season at New Egypt and talked about his rough start to the season.
Addison Bowman remembered his second season in a Sportsman and talked about Super DIRT Week.

It was a cold and snowy one on Wednesday as everyone here in our area got at least a little snow and some got over a foot. As I type this up just after 7 p.m. the lake effect band is setting up so it could be a snowy morning today for some of you. I Liverpool we’ve used the snowblower twice this year. That’s fine with me!

I have a pair of Season in Review chats today and we’ll be back in the studio today to get some more conversations for you to listen to. We’re winding down our new stuff for the year and will soon do our own Season in Review with our most listened to interviews for the entire year done month by month.

So if you have suggestions get them in now as the holidays will be here before you know it.

Now let’s talk more about what’s new on the Audio Page as we continue our look back at the 2019 race season. Danny Bouc reviewed his winning season at New Egypt and talked about his rough start to the season that limited his options somewhat as well as how passion can both hurt and help a racecar driver.   

Addison Bowman remembered his second season in a Sportsman and talked about his up and down ride at Super DIRT Week as well as how he started in a Quarter Midget at age five.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Tony Markou reviewed his first year back in the seat since 1999 and told me about Pro Stock racing.
Kenny Hunt raced again after fifteen years off and talked about how much he enjoys Hobby Stocks.

I have interviews up today with a pair of drivers who each got out of the sport years ago and each got back into a racecar this past season. I can only imagine how each of these people found their way back to the sport and what it must have been like as they saw their car’s coming together and got to take them on the track for some fun the first time.

I know you’ll enjoy both of these even though many of you might now know their names. This sport arouses so much passion in us all and I am so happy to share how each of these men were able to get back to their passion and get back int the sport they love so much. Give them a listen guys and gals…I know you’ll like them.

Now let’s chat more about each of the two chats we have for you on the Audio Page as we find out how two racers got back to the track after so many years away from it. Tony Markou reviewed his first year back in the seat since 1999 and told me some of what he learned about Pro Stock racing today and remembered some of his best finishes towards the end of the season. 

Kenny Hunt raced again after fifteen years off and talked about how many Ford Mustang four cylinders racecars there used to be at Black Rock Speedway back in the day and how much he enjoys the Hobby Stock class he now competes in.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Tommy Sears reviews his 2019 season driving big blocks and 358s and talked about a change to come. 
Tony Veneziano ran down some WoO Sprint Car news and reviewed the seasons of the top 5 drivers.

I got more work done on Monday as we continue to wind things down here in 2019. We’ll be doing our best of’s here really soon but since I am still able to do interviews I am going to get as many done as I can before I do that.

I have a nice Season in Review today as well as our weekly Sprint Car update from our friend Tony. Tomorrow we’ll show some love to stock cars as they have always held a special place in my heart. I remember the Pure Stock/Street Socks and Enduros from the early 90’s when I first got into this crazy sport and I have always loved them.

I hope you al are not letting the holidays stress you out. I know I’m not. The important things are the people you care about and being together on special occasions. Everything else is just not that important. We’ve lost a lot of great people this year and are praying right now for others who we hope we don’t lose. So remember what’s important and enjoy family, friends and the good things in our lives. Life is too short to think too much about everything else.

Now let’s chat more about what is on the Audio Page today as we sit here today exactly one week away from Christmas Eve. Tommy Sears reviews his 2019 season driving big blocks and 358’s, remembered some of the tough luck he had in his season ending 200 lappers and talked about a big change for 2020.  

Tony Veneziano ran down some WoO Sprint Car news including Toyota’s entry into the fray, reported on some news from Down Under and reviewed the seasons of the top 5 drivers on the series.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Glenn Forward reviews his second season in a 358 Modified and talked about the quest for win #1.
Kyle Inman remembers his 2019 season in a Sportsman as he won 18 races at 10 different tracks.

My Sunday went exactly as I had planned as virtually every minute was accounted for from the time I woke up till I shut things down around 8:30. We were able to hang out with my football buddies in the early afternoon, get an interview done before the birthday diner for Allie and then was able to get back in the studio after that for two  more. So yeah, it was a pretty productive day and a pretty fun day too.

I’ll be back at it later on today with hopes of being able to take Tuesday off for bowling first and on-line racing after that. I’m excited about getting more new stuff this week before our month by month season in review starting some time next week. But we’re still going strong so we’ll stick with what we’re doing and take or vacation when it’s convenient.

Now let’s chat more about the pair of Season in Review interviews on the Audio Page for you guys and gals today. Glenn Forward reviews his second season in a 358 Modified and talked about the quest for his first win in the division while describing what makes the jump from Sportsman to Mod so tough. 

Kyle Inman remembers his 2019 season in a Sportsman as he won 18 races at 10 different tracks, explains why one extra distance race win was so special and why the mile at Syracuse got his attention more than any other place.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Eldon Payne Jr. reviews his 2019 racing season as he picked up his first career Modified feature wins.
Dwight Nichols explained why he got a late start in 2019 and why he was sidelined in late August.

I had a nice day on Saturday as I got four interviews recorded in the studio. Two of those are up today and more are coming as I’ll be back in for a while later this afternoon.

We’re celebrating Allie’s birthday a little early later on today but I hope to get in the studio both before and after we do that. I’ll be down the street watching the early games with friends and then I’ll head back and get to work. We have a nice bunch at the place we go to. It’s not too crowded and the food is excellent.

Now let’s chat more about what I did yesterday that is on the Audio Page for you to enjoy right now. Eldon Payne Jr. reviews his 2019 racing season as he picked up his first career Modified feature wins, explained why the second win was even sweeter than the first and remembers a scary wreck at Utica Rome a few years ago that really got him thinking. 

Dwight Nichols explained why he got a late start in 2019 with hit Sportsman, why he was sidelined in late August and what he is doing this off season to be ready for a full year in 2020. Go get ‘em Dwight and stay healthy!
