Jordan Givler went to Ransomville for the very first time and talked about his fifth place finish.
I had a great time last night as I headed out to Ransomville Speedway to do some TV with Rich Vleck, Paul Szmal and a trimmed down Speedway Showcase crew. We covered the Patriot Sprint Tour A-Main for air later on Time Warner Cable Sports and had a great time seeing some familiar faces and meeting lots and lots of new ones.
The Flying Physician Steve Collins picked up the win passing Kelly Hebing with ten laps to go while Hebing held on for her career best finish in fourth place. Kyle Drum made a run for the lead late but was unable to get by the doc and had to settle for second. I have the entire top five from the finish for you to listen to, two of which had never raced at the track before. I love that don’t you?
I also covered the Street Stocks which were very racy and looked like real stock cars. Camaros and Monte Carlos were the order of the day and I was very impressed not just with the racing but with the camaraderie I saw as the top four spoke in the tech area after the race. Yeah, I was impressed with them top to bottom.
I would have done more but was were doing TV and my help was needed elsewhere. We got a lot done, worked as a true team and had so much fun. Between all of us who do the show we have a lot of racing under our belts and do whatever needs to be done. It was a blast! We’re supposed to do it again Sunday so I am really hoping all those people who make a living predicting the weather are dead wrong about tomorrow, We’ll have to see I guess.
Now I can’t wait to get back there with Allie on a night when I can do my Doug’s Dirt Diary thing only and really give you guys a taste of what is going on there. I met so many new people and I hope you enjoying hearing from them today.
I may try to hit Fulton late with Allie today but we’ll see what time I get done with an afternoon activity. One way or another we’ll have lots of good stuff up for you tomorrow so be sure to check back. And thanks to everyone who chatted with me on the mic last night. I truly enjoyed it!
