Mike Stelter reviews his 2015 season and how his last race got him pumped up for the 2016 season.
Lee Gurney talks about some significant upgrades for his team as they add a second driver.

We have some Sprint Car stuff for you today as we look at a driver and a car owner to see what they have cooking for the coming season. I always enjoy chatting with car owners as the spend all the money without getting the rush of being behind the seat. And Lee Gurney will tell you how close he came to shutting things down, why he decided to up his game and a little about his time as a driver.

Mike Stelter is one of the nice guys in racing. He is coming off a good season and hopes that the momentum he built up late will carry over to 2016.

Mike also wanted to give a shout out to Andrew Seamons who is the tire specialist on the Larson -Marks #2 of Shane Stewart for kickin butt in Arizona!! They won the championship at Cocopah’s Winter Heat and it is nice to see one of our own doing well. Way to go Andrew!

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting out with another Season in Review interview. Mike Stelter reviews his 2015 season, explains how his last race got him pumped up for the 2016 season and why he is adding a 305 Sprinter to his shop.

Dave Marcuccilli reviews his 14 win season in a Sportsman and his first ever track championships.
Nick Krause recaps his season in a Sportsman and talks about why they had to scale things back.

We have a pair of Sportsman drivers from the Central New York region on the site today and tomorrow we’ll be back with a Sprint Car theme as we here from driver Mike Stelter and car owner Lee Gurney.

Everything here is going well. Dad is continuing to rehab his new hip and is getting a little better every day. It’s a long road for sure but he has a positive attitude and is adjusting well to the rehab center. Keep your fingers crossed for a full recovery so he can get back on the golf course and back on the bowling lanes.

I’ll be off today as I have bowling tonight followed by my usual Tuesday night on-line racing. I may even have someone new with me tonight to check it out. He is going to driver a racecar for the first time this season so I am hoping that getting him some laps on my set up will help. More on that as it develops.

Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page starting with a two time track champion. Dave Marcuccilli reviews his 14 win season in a Sportsman, tells me how he formed a friendship with his number 1 rival and how cool it was to win his first ever track championships.
