We hope you all had a nice Halloween although Mother Nature did take a lot of the fun out of it with the rain and wind. Hey, if you want free candy you’ve got to earn it and the young ladies and Gentlemen earned their take yesterday. Nice job all!

We were off yesterday but will be at it again today as we’ll find some folks to speak with so you guys and gals can have new stuff to listen to tomorrow. If you have suggestions please pass them on as I am always looking to give you all what you want.

Pete Stefanski talked about getting his Pro Stock ready for Charlotte as they hit the track tonight.
Garrison Krentz spoke about his hopes for Charlotte and how he did running Sportsman two nights.

I had a nice day on Wednesday as I headed west to have lunch with a friend to talk racing and catch up on our lives away from racing. I love local diners and have a great breakfast at 12:30 before heading home just in time to get my youngest daughter off the bus.

After that we got to work in the studio, bought Halloween candy at the store and brought Allie to her boxing class. She is so in shape now it is not even funny. Between that and the gym I’m sure she is stronger than me right now and probably a lot of you too. I could not be more proud.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page featuring New York State racers that are hitting the track in Charlotte. Pete Stefanski talked about getting his Pro Stock ready for Charlotte as they hit the track tonight, remembers the last time he raced on the big track and what he is thinking about for 2020.

David VanHorn talks about his 4th at New Egypt, this weekend at Georgetown and Vahlco Wheels.
Tyler Corcoran told me about his 4th place finish in a Sportsman at Orange County and Charlotte.

I had another great day as we saw the sun shine all day and a nice warm wind made sitting on the porch mandatory as we have to wonder how moan more days like that we’re gonna get before old man winter pushes us inside.

I only had a small window to get work done but thanks to my Facebook friends I was able to do a quick four in just about an hour. Thanks guys. It’s days like that where I fell so fortunate to have all of you as friends as I needed you yesterday as I need to be ahead so I don’t have to try to call anyone on Halloween.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who is going to race twice this weekend in two different cars.

Chris Mackey talks about his win on Saturday at Utica Rome and how he fixed a handling issue.
Tony Veneziano reports on the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars as they raced once at Port Royal.

What a beautiful day it was on Monday huh? It was 65 and sunny here and we did a lot of things over the course of the day and had a great time.

I did more research on what I’m thinking about and had some great conversations as I kept the recorder off for the day. We’ll be back at it again as there are still some big shows out there although you’ll have to travel south to see them.

Now let’s chat more about what is new on the Audio Page for today beginning with a winner from the weekend. Chris Mackey talks about his Sportsman win on Saturday at Utica Rome, how he fixed a handling issue he had in the heat race and how he came from 12th to 1st in the feature.

Wade Hendrickson talks about his third place finish at New Egypt and remembers his famous Z1 car.
Josh Coonradt told me how he won his second Pro Stock race in a row on Saturday at Utica Rome.

We got back up to speed after a day of scattered internet and phone outages here on Saturday. We have it all worked out and are now all set and moving forward. So rather than just sit home and do nothing I chatted with several people about my updated and still somewhat unsure vision for our future. Take advantage of the time to think right?

We got a lot of logistics figured out and will begin to move slowly forward on our plan this week. I actually chatted with more knowledgeable people on Sunday and the vision is coming into focus.

Now let’s chat about the two new conversations on the Audio Page that I recorded Sunday afternoon. Wade Hendrickson talks about his third place finish at New Egypt, explains why the car was so loose in the early laps and remembers his famous Z1 car as well as a comment a hall of famer said when he looked inside. Good stuff here! 

Josh Coonradt told me how he won his second Pro Stock race in a row in Saturday’s 50 lapper at Utica Rome, why he changed his race line up after an early restart and describes the shop work he already has done as he looks to next season.

I had a bunch of stuff going on Saturday and was unable to get into the studio. We will be back at it today as many of you are either ending your seasons this weekend or getting ready for the big track at Charlotte.

We are busy plotting our overall future and very soon things will get interesting although I don’t wanna get to specific. We used Saturday to chat with some friends we trust as we plot our course for the future both here on DDD and with other ventures.

Allie will continue to race with the Dirt Modified Nostalgia Tour and we are trying to figure out how to do more with that just a few in-car videos and Facebook Live Updates. We are in such a good place right now but know we can do better. Allie is learning racing fast and lots more. So much more that I need to get up to speed myself just to keep up with her.

I hope you all had a great Saturday and for all of you who are in your shops this weekend we wish you well as you start to prepare for 2020. The sport itself is in a very good place right now at the local level and even with the touring Late Model and Sprint Car Series. They are all doing well.

The only part of it that is not of course is the highest level. Interest continues to wane which is good for all of us. We know the best racing is at the track down the road and not on the big stage as it has become nothing more than a reality TV show with all the drama associated with it.

Feel great about what all you real racers have done. Who would have thought 30 years ago that local racing and surpass NASCAR would become the best racing around? So, get to work, hold your heads high and know that all of you who make dirt racing happen are THE BEST SHOW IN TOWN. You should be very proud!

We love you guys and wish you all the best. We’ll see you tomorrow as we’ll have more audio for you on Monday.
