Rusty Smith runs down his plans to race both dirt Modifieds and asphalt Modifieds in 2015.
Tony Veneziano analyzes the Sprint Car races for both the World of Outlaws and All Stars.
 
The cold continues as we try to stay warm here in the northeast. I was out again with the snow blower on Thursday and hope to keep it in the garage today but as I look out the window here Thursday night I am wondering if that will happen or not.
 
As I type this up, I am less than a half an hour away from watching the Duels from Daytona. Allie is all excited and wondering why they don’t do these qualifying races at more Sprint Cup events. Ah, the things kids say although in this case she is probably right. I’d love to see this at every race. I betcha they’d sell more tickets to that then they sell to qualifying now.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today starting with a driver who is going to be very busy this season. Rusty Smith runs down his plans to race both dirt Modifieds and asphalt Modifieds in 2015 while wondering if his starts on dirt are helping him on the asphalt. 
 
Tony Veneziano analyzes the Florida Sprint Car races for both the World of Outlaws & All Stars and talks about the high level of talent in the field as well as the low car counts.

Andrew Ferguson reminds fans about his racing benefit taking place this Sunday in Marcellus.
Chris Cunningham tells me about his move to a crate Sportsman and what influenced his decision.
 
Get ready for some racing today as our Modifieds join the Late Models in Volusia and the twin 125’s get NASCAR going. I know I’ll be in front of the TV tonight with Allie to watch the action from the big track.
 
This is such an exciting time of the year isn’t it? We have the best in racing on all types of surfaces and in all types of cars going on right now. Hopes are high and the anticipation level is high as well. It’s going to be a great weekend to say the least.
 
I have a theme today on the Audio Page as we check in with a pair of drivers who are each trying something new this season. Andrew Ferguson reminds fans about his racing benefit taking place this Sunday in Marcellus as he gets ready for the big move up to a big block Modified. 
 
Chris Cunningham tells me about his move to a crate Sportsman after 20 years in stock cars and what influenced his decision to try out this growing class.

Vic Coffey talks about his race at Golden Isles, his hopes for Volusia and his plans for 2015.
Dave Allen recaps his 16th place finish at Golden Isles and tells me how he likes racing at Volusia.
 
I got lucky and was able to speak to some of our Modified drivers as they had a rain out last night at Volusia. No, they were not on the card to race but many were looking forward to hot laps. Racing for them starts tonight as they share the card with some of the best Late Model talent in the business.
 
I will be back in the studio again today as we have lots of things to talk about with the start of the local season getting closer and closer.
 
On a personal note, my wife and I finally went out to eat last night to celebrate Valentine’s Day. With kids and all it can be tough to get that alone time you need and it was nice to have a meal together as a couple. It was almost like the old days. It was fun!
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page from some guys who raced this past weekend in Georgia. Vic Coffey talks about what he learned in his race at Golden Isles on Sunday, his hopes for Volusia this week and his plans for 2015 that include a lot of Modified racing. 
 
Dave Allen recaps his 16th place finish at Golden Isles, described how tough it was to pass and tells me how he likes racing at Volusia as he is down there for the fifth time.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
David Marcuccilli tells me about the new car he is working on and the popularity of Sportsman.
Brandon Ford runs down some changes for 2015 as he gets ready to race Sportsman & Late Models.
 
We got a lot done in the studio on Sunday including the two interviews you guys are getting today. Normally it takes 3-4 calls to get one interview but on Sunday I made 5 calls and got 4 interviews out of it. Some days it takes up to 10 calls just to get one taker so I’ll take more days like Sunday for sure.
 
I’ll be back in the studio again today as we show some love for the Sportsman division today. And as we look back at this years from now we may refer to today as the Golden Age of Sportsman racing. Would you agree?
 
Plus the Late Model class continues to grow as one of our interviewees today will be doing that as well as Sportsman. And David Marcuccilli is already considered one of the best and cleanest racers around and I am happy to have him as a friend of the site.

And I am back to bowling well in our Monday league with a nice 648 on Monday. I did break my streak of consecutive 200 games but onkly by one pin. Our team is in first place and we are hoping to get into the rolloff. It's amazing what a new ball can do if you hit your mark. Let's hope the good scores continue. If I was a better spare shooter I would be dangerous.
 
Now let’s talk in more detail about what you can listen to on the Audio Page on a cold Tuesday. David Marcuccilli tells me about the new car he is working on, the popularity of Sportsman racing right now and thinks back to his early days running an Enduro in Weedsport. 
 
Brandon Ford runs down some changes for this year as he gets ready to race Sportsman & Late Models and tells me what he likes about each type of racecar that he drives.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Claude Hutchings Jr. tells me about the work they are doing to get their Sportsman ready.
Dean Reynolds chats about the tentative scheduled just released for the Empire Super Sprints.
 
We’re back on a Monday with news on the upcoming season for many of the area Sprint Car teams as well as news with a well known Sportsman driver who may embrace a new challenge this year.
 
I was busy on Sunday getting two days worth of interviews done so I could take a little easier today. I will of course be writing a new piece for the Syracuse Post Standard and Syracuse.com plus I have bowling tonight and I’ve found I do better when my work is done before I get to the lanes. Heck, I have enough trouble as it is so it is nice to go there knowing I do not have work waiting for me at home.
 
I don’t know about you, but I am ready to nominate the snow blower as one of the greatest inventions ever made. And boy has it gotten a work out these past few weeks. We have so much snow here it is getting tough for the snow blower to get the snow high enough to clear the banks. This is like the winters I remember as a kid in the 70’s. Yes, I do not hate it but I could use a day or two off from snow clearing and I bet you could too!
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we get our work week started. Claude Hutchings Jr. tells me about the work they are doing to get their Sportsman ready, thinks back on 2014 and wonders if they may go Modified racing later this season. 
 
Dean Reynolds chats about the tentative scheduled just released for the Empire Super Sprints as well as the new dates at some new tracks that have been added.

Ryan Susice recaps his off season indoor races and talks about his plans to run big block races.
Mike O’Brien tells me about his race party on March 29th and how tough it is to win at Canandaigua.
 
I hope you all had a nice Valentine’s Day on Saturday. If you are fortunate enough to have a special someone in your life, make sure to celebrate that with them and if not, well there was at least a lot of racing on TV to keep you busy.
 
As I write this up, I’m trying to figure out how I’ll watch the Duke game and the ARCA race at the same time. Fortunately the dvr is getting both so we’ll figure out a way to make that happen.
 
I did get some work done later in the afternoon but need to load up in the studio today so drivers, if you are around and have some things to chat about, please send me a message and we’ll talk today. Thanks.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have to listen to on the Audio Page as we wind down the weekend and hope to avoid another blast of winter. 
 
Ryan Susice recaps his off season indoor races, talks about his plans to run both big block & small block races and explains how helping a racer last season will help him this season. 
 
Mike O’Brien tells me about his race party on March 29th and how tough it is to win at Canandaigua as well as what tends to happen in the closing laps.

Joe Trenca tells me what he is working on at his race shop and his aggressive plans for 2015.
Rocky Warner talks about his new ride for Sundays and how tough it is to move up to a Modified.
 
I got a lot done on Friday as the kids were off from school for the fourth time in the last three weeks. Cold was the reason on Friday although we did get a fair amount of snow as well from a small lake effect band that set up Thursday night. I could have shoveled, but with my back I decided to get the old snowblower out more time.
 
I did five interviews on Friday as I figure today will be a tough day to chat with people with it being Valentine’s Day and all. So all you single racecar drivers, call me today and we’ll get you on the show. For everyone else, make sure to do something special with your loved one today and watch the race from Daytona tonight.
 
I’ll be watching tonight as my oldest daughter Allie is in full race starvation mode. She’s been reading up this off season with her subscription to NASCAR Illustrated and her new edition came on Friday. So she will be ready to go tonight rooting on everybody but Kyle Busch. She thinks he is a cherry picker too.
 
Now let’s talk more about what we have on the Audio Page for you guys to listen to today. Joe Trenca tells me what he is working on at his race shop, his aggressive plans for 2015 and where he would like to be in five years at age 22.
 
Rocky Warner talks about his new ride for Sundays with a veteran car owner, how tough it is to move up to a Modified and remembers his race at Golden Isles many years ago in a stock car.
