   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Doug Manmiller recapped his two win season and evaluated each of his weekly homes in 2014.
Jim Clapper talks about a new series he is putting together for the 600 cc Micro Sprint drivers.
 
We’re back on a Tuesday with another Season in Review with one of Pennsylvania’s best Modified drivers and with news on a new series that will be around in 2014.
 
And one of the interviews today happened just because of facebook so if you have not freinded me there yet, please do so as I am getting a lot of great ideas from people there. Now I need to hear from you.
 
We are almost caught up on requests as of now and did a few more yesterday so I am looking for more. Please email your thoughts and questions to doug@dougsdirtdiary.com. I’ll get ‘em real fast for you.
 
Now let’s chat more about what is new for today on the Audio Page. I start with a Season in Review. Doug Manmiller recapped his two win season and evaluated each of his weekly homes in 2014. He told me about the tough heat races at Grandview, how he trashed a new car in a violent crash and what he is working on back at the race shop.
 
Jim Clapper talks about a new series he is putting together for the 600 cc Micro Sprint drivers. He told me about the tracks he has on board as of now, what his hopes are for the series and describes his own racing background. Yeah, those Street Stocks are serious racecars nowadays.

Tana Robinson tells us about a great deal on season passes and Ransomville's big shows for 2014.
Cory Pike walks me through his rookie season in a Sportsman and what he learned from crewing.
 
We spent some time digging out on Sunday as a weather event (I won’t call it a storm because it wasn’t) dropped about six inches on us in Central New York. And we could get some lake effect afterwards so we may be doing the same thing today.
 
Of course with my new snow tires from Kinney’s Kar Kare and my rims from Benwood Auto Parts, I had no trouble getting around and actually found it to be a lot of fun. If you are slipping and sliding a little too much, check them out and they’ll get you glued to the road just like me.
 
I got a bunch of new interviews done on Sunday in between sporting events and have two of them up for today. Be sure to call Tana if you are a Ransomville Speedway fan as they have an incredible deal going on Season Passes that ends on December 20th. All it costs is $185 and it covers all the races. Call her at 716-791-3611.
 
And I have a first timer on the site too in Cory Pike. It’s a real nice story about a guy who jumped right into the Open Sportsman world at I-88 Speedway and how working with an established team helped him learn a lot in a quicker fashion that if he would have been trying to do it all himself. It’s a good one so give it a listen.
 
Now let’s go in more detail with the new stuff I have for you on the Audio Page. I begin with news from Western New York. Tana Robinson tells us about a great deal on season passes and the big shows for 2014 at Ransomville. She encouraged folks to call before December 20th to get this special deal, spoke about the Alex Friesen Summernationals becoming a Super DIRTcar Series event and reminded us about the Hangover 150 on New Year’s Day. 
 
Cory Pike walks me through his rookie season in a Sportsman and what he learned from crewing for an established Modified team. He told me how soon he picked up a top ten finish, how an engine problem sidelined him for a few weeks and how a four wide move backfired on him. Good one here!

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Eddie White talks about his four win season and how close he came to winning the ROC title.
Rick Martell recaps last weekend’s indoor kart race and thanks all the folks who made it happen.
 
It was a crazy day on Saturday as we went back and forth between two kid’s birthday parties. We had a great time and so did the kids.
 
I hope the snow did not mess up your plans and I hope your holiday shopping is going well as we get closer to the big day. We have a little more than a week left of new stuff before we reveal our top downloads of 2013. We’ll do our usual and do all twelve months on twelve consecutive days at the end of the year.
 
But before then, we have two more new conversations for you today on the Audio Page. I begin with a man who enjoyed a nice season as part of a three driver team. Eddie White talks about his four win season and how close he came to winning the ROC title. He told me how watching his son win a big race was his best moment of the year, how he came to run the number 20 on his Sportsman and the work they are doing now to get ready for 2014. 
 
Rick Martell recaps last weekend’s indoor kart race and thanks all the folks who made it happen. He talked about how well the track ran in, how the new ventilation system kept the air cleaner and the feedback he received about the open tire rule.

Danny Varin talks about his 2013 season that saw him finish 2nd at Fonda and win 7 times.
Bud Leizear tells me about the racecar he will drive in 2014 after three years of tech inspecting.
 
It was a snowy day on Friday as we picked up about 4 inches or so in the afternoon. And now it sounds like we may get much more today in a general snow event. It’s all cool with me and it now sounds like a white Christmas may be in order.
 
I got four interviews done yesterday as I may not be able to do much today as I have a pair of birthday parties with my kids. One is at noon and my daughter’s party is after that. So I am not sure if I will get back into the studio or not but I sure will try. And if not, I’ll be back at tomorrow in between football games.
 
I have two nice ones up for you today. One is with someone you know and the other is with someone new to the site. Bud Leizear sent me a message on facebook and that is why that interview happened so if you have not friended me yet, please do so and then message me so we can get you on.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page. I begin with a young man who had a very consistent year at his weekly track. Danny Varin talks about his 2013 season that saw him finish 2nd at Fonda and win 7 times. He spoke about the changes at his weekly home, some new equipment for next year and winning on the same night as dad down at I-88 Speedway. 
 
Bud Leizear tells me about the racecar he will drive in 2014 after three years of tech inspecting. He talked about why the 600 cc Modified seems like the right car to go with, how he did in his three years of Street Stock racing and what he learned from working for I-88 in the pits.

Ryan Susice talks about his multi win season at Ransomville and the night he went up in flames.
Ernie Saxton spoke about his latest column in AARN and some changes at the NASCAR HOF.
 
The work week has ended and another weekend is upon us. And for those of you who ride snowmobiles, this should be a good weekend as there is a lot of snow out there if you are willing to take a short drive to do so.
 
The lake effect machine dropped a lot of snow in the Tug Hill region as well as the southwest corner of New York State so I know a lot of you will be out on the trails. Be safe though as we don’t want to lose anyone this season.
 
I have two nice conversations up for you today as we chat about 358’s in the Western Region and get an update on the latest NASCAR news with our friend Ernie Saxton. I’ll be back in the studio today too so if you want in, just send me an email at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com or message me on facebook.
 
Now let’s chat more about the new stuff on the Audio Page. I start with a nice one with a driver who had an adventurous season. Ryan Susice talks about his multi win season at Ransomville and the night he went up in flames. He told me about an unusual night at Rolling Wheels, his almost win at Humberstone and his rough night on a double feature night that ended his chances at a championship. 
 
Ernie Saxton spoke about his latest column in AARN and some changes at the NASCAR HOF. He talked about being home in Pennsylvania for the holidays, Motorsports 2014 and the indoor races coming up in January.

We’re back with more good stuff for you today as we wind down the work week. I have a Season in Review and a story about a driver who will taking a trip he will remember for the re4st of his life.
 
I am off today as we have position round in bowling tonight. We have an outside chance of winning the first half of the league but we need some help. I’ll be happy just to bowl well and have fun so we’ll see how things go.
 
Tomorrow we’ll be back wit a conversation with motorsports writer Ernie Saxton and Modified racer Ryan Susice. And you know the ones with Ernie are always must listen to interviews so look for that one tomorrow.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you to enjoy on the Audio Page. I begin with a man who has been very busy with his life away from racing. Danny Tyler talks about his two win season at Accord and why he didn’t race as much as 2012. He spoke about his season ender at The Gobbler, his switch to HIG Fab Chassis and described some of the tough luck he had along the way. 
 
Jami Russell tells me about his upcoming trip to Australia and where he hopes to race down under. He explained how the deal came about to make the trip, who he hopes to race against and his busy plans for 2014 that include a vintage Funny Car.

Billy Pauch Jr. talked about his eight win season and why he feels a positive vibe right now.
C.J. Castelletti told me about his ten starts at Glen Ridge and confidence he gained this past season.
 
I got a lot done on Tuesday as I recorded five new conversations which allows me to take Thursday off. We’re back today with a Season in Review as well as another chat with a driver who seemed to take the next step in his racing career this past year.
 
Tomorrow we’ll talk to a driver who is getting the chance to head to Australia and race this off season. Of course that has been a long time dream of mine to head down under some time in the future and who knows, maybe we’ll still get that chance. Until then we’ll do it vicariously through others.
 
We’ll be writing today and back in the studio because if I get enough ahead I may be able to take two days off in a row. Yeah baby!
 
I also wanted to thank SUNY Canton for their continued support of this website and racing in general. They have been with us for several seasons now and we are so honored that they see value in what we do. We’ll keep doing our best for them and all our sponsors as we continue to tell the stories of local racing. Thanks so much!
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page. I begin with a Season in Review from New Jersey. Billy Pauch Jr. talked about his eight win season and why he feels a positive vibe right now. He told me about all the different racecars he drove in 2013, his five race win streak and the indoor races he plans to run in January.
 
C.J. Castelletti told me about his ten starts at Glen Ridge and confidence he gained this past season. He talked about learning the fast ¼ mile track, why he missed a good part of the season due to a non-racing commitment and wonders where he will race in 2014.
