Taylor Caprara remembered his two win season at Can Am and how he was better at late season.
Peter Broderson talked about his championship season at Fonda and why he may scale back now.
 
I got a lot done on Saturday as I got in the studio in the afternoon and plan to do the same today as I hope to get a little ahead. I have two good ones up today as we check in with a Sportsman racer from up north and a stock car guy from the Capital District. 
 
Now I’ve watched Taylor Caprara grow up and it is nice to see him doing well on the track and at the family business. In case you didn’t know, F.X. Caprara Harley Davidson is now in the old Iron Block Harley building in Adam Center. Not only do they sell Harleys, but they also sell all the snowmobile stuff you need as well. So stop by and see him the next time you are up north. Call them at 315-583-6177.
 
Pete Broderson has a new business catering to the towing and trailer industry and he is just getting started. A lot of you raceteams should give him a call if you have some specific needs. He can be reached at 518-888-4967.
 
And in the can right now and ready for release is a chat with Sportsman/Late Model racer Ronnie Davis III. He has a new car on the way and is excited to do some traveling this year. Come back tomorrow and you’ll hear from him as he wraps up his senior year in high school.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have to listen to on the Audio Page for today. Taylor Caprara remembered his two win season at Can Am and how he was better at late season. He told me how close he came to winning a championship, how fast the surface was up north and his hopes to one day take on the mile at Syracuse. 
 
Peter Broderson talked about his championship season at Fonda and why he may scale back now. He explained why trying to cut back the last few seasons didn’t work out, reacted to the changes at Fonda and told me about his new business called Capital Towing Supply. Best of luck Pete!

Jami Russell just got back from Australia and recapped his racing adventures from down under.
Sam Warren recapped his 4 win season at Evans Mills that included a flip on his graduation day.
 
It was a nice day on Friday as we thawed out a little and got to see bare asphalt on the roads after a big storm earlier in the week. It was nice to get out, do some things with the family before getting to work in the studio.
 
I have two nice chats for you today including one with a driver we know well who just got back from the trip of a lifetime. I just love hearing stories about Australia and hope to get there myself one day. But until then, I’ll listen to Jami and hear him tell it. And you’ll be surprised to hear his kangaroo stories. Sounds like they are like deer here in the states as you have to dodge them on the road.
 
Also we welcome someone new to the site as we chat with rookie Sam Warren. He is a graduate of SUNY Canton and is going for a Masters Degree now. He has a lot of good stories in his interview so go ahead and meet someone new on the Audio Page today.
 
I’ll be back in the studio today as I am going to get some work done this afternoon before heading out to see another old friend and his band play a local restaurant. It should be a lot of fun. So if you are around and want to chat, send me a message on facebook or at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com.
 
Now let’s go into more detail about the new stuff we have for you on the Audio Page for today. Jami Russell just got back from Australia and recapped his racing adventures from down under. He explained why he did not get to race as much as he would have liked, compared racing there to here in the states and remembered a good friend he lost while he was away. Rest in peace Danny!  
 
Sam Warren recapped his 4 win season at Evans Mills that included a flip on his graduation day. He explained how damage from that crash hurt him in a post race inspection, why he is changing his plans a little this year and what he hopes to in 2015 that would help him follow in his uncle’s footsteps.

Kevin Albert spoke about his hopes for his first trip to Volusia and his 2013 season at Big Diamond.
Billy Pauch recaps his races at Atlantic City and looks forward to races in Trenton and Volusia.
 
Things got back to normal on Thursday as the snow was cleared and people felt a lot better driving on the roads. The snow piles are getting pretty big here and we hope everything worked out well for you as we braved another winter storm.
 
On the site today we have two drivers who will be racing very soon. One will go tonight at a new venue while the other is still getting ready for a Florida trip. Well, actually both are.
 
I enjoyed a somewhat day off on Thursday but you guys know me, I usually get bored an get some work done and yesterday was no exception as I spoke with Billy after a decent night on the lanes. Oh well. I guess there are bigger problems to have huh?
 
Now let’s talk about the two travelers I have on the Audio Page for you to listen to today. Kevin Albert spoke about his hopes for his first trip to Volusia and his 2013 season at Big Diamond. He told me what his big goal is for the DIRTcar Nationals, how he felt in his first laps in a big block at Syracuse and his plans to travel a bit more in 2014.
 
Billy Pauch recaps his races at Atlantic City and looks forward to races in Trenton and Volusia. He told me about some handling issues two weeks ago, how a sponsor stepping up is going to help get him to Florida and remembers his brief career in the truck series on asphalt. Excellent chat here!

Joe Skotnicki gets ready for Volusia and looks forward to what could be a big year for DIRTcar.
Tim Trimble remembers his three win season at Georgetown and his move to Delaware this year.
 
What a fun day it was on Wednesday huh? Well at least I hope it was for you. I love the snow and we got a lot of it. I don’t know how much you picked up but we got close to a foot. It took two trips with the snowblower and I went out and about with my car three times to have some fun.
 
I also got a lot of work done as I did three new interviews. I chatted with Joe Skotnicki first and then Jami Russell and Kevin Albert. Jami just got back from a trip to Australia and Kevin is getting ready for his first trip to Volusia which will also be his first big block Modified races as well. So be sure to stop back for that.
 
I have today off and hope do a little bit better a bowling tonight than I did last time out two weeks ago. That last time the emotions hit me a little hard and I was unable to concentrate as I fought back tears while thinking about mom. She always rooted me on with my bowling and the week before was when she got sick…right while we were bowling. So I guess I shouldn’t be that shocked that it hit me when it did huh?
 
But enough about that, let’s talk more now about the new stuff on the Audio Page for you to listen to today. Joe Skotnicki gets ready for Volusia and looks forward to what could be a big year for DIRTcar. He told me why he feels teams make the long trip south for the DIRTcar Nationals, how tight the racing community is now and why he still has to be on his toes even though things look rosy from the outside.
 
Tim Trimble remembers his three win season at Georgetown and his move to Delaware this year. He talked about his plans to run for points this year, how his shop work is coming along as he gets ready and one big change at the track in the area of tires. Interesting…

Neal Williams recaps his races at Atlantic City and looks forward to Trenton and Volusia.
Larry Bishop talks about Dig Safely New York, how it came to be and why racing works for them.
 
Today could be a fun day for some and a terrible day for others as a storm is heading our way. They are saying between 6-12 inches of snow could fall so it won’t be that bad for us snow savvy folks in Lake Effect Country but it may be enough to run over our allocated snow days. Yep, the kids will be hoping for a day off today alright.
 
 I’ll be doing some driving with my new snows from Kinney Kar Kare and my rims from Benwood Auto Parts. Call them yourself and you can look forward to snow like I do!
 
I got busy yesterday as I recorded three new conversations for the website. I put two of those up and tomorrow you’ll hear from Easton’s Racing Barber Tim Trimble as he gets ready to run for points at Delaware.
 
On the site today we have a driver who has been very busy and will continue that trend this weekend with a trip to a new indoor event in Trenton, New Jersey. And he’ll be heading to Florida soon as well.
 
Plus we’ll learn more about a business that has sponsored racing at multiple tracks and also sponsors this website. Thanks to these guys, all you have to do is call 811 on your phone before you dig to make sure all is well. No more looking through phone books trying to talk to the various agencies, one call to 811 does it all. And now you’ll hear how it happened.
 
But first, let’s talk more about the first interview I have up for you on the Audio Page. I begin with a young driver with a bright future. Neal Williams recaps his races at Atlantic City and looks forward to Trenton and Volusia. He told me how good he was initially at the indoor show, how tight this type of racing can be and how much more comfortable he will be this year with a big block at the big track in Florida. 
 
Larry Bishop talks about Dig Safely New York, how it came to be and why racing works for them. He explained why he thought that the racing world would be a great way to get the word out, how easy it is to find out what is underground where you are and the places they will be this year to help spread the word.

Logan Schuchart talks about his races in Florida later this week and his hopes to with The Outlaws.
Charlie Donk told meabout the brand new Sprint Car he has and runs down his plans to stay local.
 
I got back to work on Monday after being sick for a few days. I am winding down the cold and now have the cough so thank goodness I was able to shut my voice off at times during the interviews that you’ll hear today.
 
As you can see we went with a theme today and talked to a pair of Sprint Car drivers. One drives a 410 and has plans to test himself against the best in the business while the other is hoping to have a great season in a brand new car.
 
I would have gotten more done but my car broke down after dinner and I lost an hour waiting for the two truck to come. I had my kids with me too so thank goodness for AAA. Dad came and picked them while I waited for the truck. Let’s hope this does not break the bank here as we were just starting to get ahead. Welcome to the world we live in today.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page. I begin with a driver with big plans. Logan Schuchart talks about his races in Florida starting this week and his hopes to with The Outlaws. He told me about the intense competition he will see at Ocala and Volusia, why he likes starting with the same car he finished with last year and some tracks he is looking forward to seeing for the first time. 
 
Charlie Donk told meabout the brand new Sprint Car he has and runs down his plans to stay local. He talked about his new motor builder, why he wants to focus on 360 races this year and reminds fans to check him out at Motorsports Expo 2014 in Syracuse in March.

Scott Kreutter tells me how he lost the Patriot Sprint Tout title and how he did in Atlantic City.
 
We’re back on a Monday with another new conversation with one of the area’s top Sprint Car drivers who came ever so close to another championship. You’ll be surprised at the way things happened for him as he just lost the lead at the wrong time.
 
I am going to be in the studio a lot today and will be writing up another new article for the Syracuse Post Standard. I hope you all had a great day on Sunday and are ready for another work week. I think I am.
 
As I told you yesterday, I had a busier than usual weekend and was unable to do my usual workload of interviews with the SU game and the Super Bowl taking up people’s time.
 
Now let’s chat more about the interview we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page for today. Scott Kreutter tells me how he lost the Patriot Sprint Tout title and how he did in Atlantic City. He explained how two cancellations prevented him from getting the opportunity to retake the lead, how sore he was after some races last year and why he feels Sprint Car racing continues to grow in popularity.
