Ryan Susice talks about his hopes for this weekend’s season openers at Ransomville and Merrittville.
Frank Nortz previews Saturday’s opener at Adirondack and next week’s big dirt Sportsman race.

The tracks close to me have already been rained out for today but there are still tracks out there that are optimistic about tonight. And our first person up today is hoping to get dirty and race at one of those tracks tonight.
 
I’ll be here in the studio and will be at Land of Legends Raceway tomorrow where I will be pit reporting and doing victory lanes. I am finally feeling better on day three of the antibiotics and am excited to finally get out now that that dull headache is gone. Yay! Finally! Race day is almost here for me. Again...yay!
 
Now let’s chat more about what is in the Audio Page for today starting with a man who, like a lot of us, can’t wait to get to the track and race. Ryan Susice talks about his hopes for this weekend’s season openers at Ransomville and Merrittville, describes what they can learn from spring smashers and his plans to race again at Outlaw on Tuesday.

I had a nice day on Wednesday as I got to celebrate my birthday with my family here at the house. It was a really nice day and I am happy to have another birthday. I’m not happy about the number associated with it but it’s better than the alternative right?
 
I’m hoping to get feeling better in the next few days as it usually take a few days fore the antibiotics to kick in. But I should be much better for the weekend as we are optimistic about both Saturday and Sunday. Let’s go racing…I hope.

Rocky Warner walks me through his Saturday at Fonda Speedway where he finished in sixth place.
Kyle DeMetro will be racing a 358 Modified this year and told me about his plans for this weekend.

I had a nice day off on Tuesday as I began my antibiotics to rid myself of a nagging sinus infection. I haven’t felt right for a few weeks now and it’s good to know there is a reason why. Usually by day three I’m doing much better and after checking with the doc on Monday, it has been almost four years since I have had one. Let’s hope this was just a fluke.
 
Nice thing is that I should be much better by Saturday when we are set to run the first race at Land of Legends Raceway. It will be fun to see you all on a race night and I’m just happy to be a small part of the show as of course, the racers are THE SHOW! My job is to get you more information to help you enjoy it a little more.

It was another cold and rainy day on Monday and that trend is set to continue at least for a few more days anyway.

I had a nice day on Sunday as I was able to do some work in the studio and go with Allie over to the fairgrounds to see our friends in the Syracuse Microd Club get in their season opener. It was cold but the sun was out so it wasn’t too bad at all. I’m still trying to fight off a cold or something and will probably head to the doctor today to see if I need so antibiotics like my wife got a few days ago.
 
I got a lot done and that’s why you have three interviews to listen to today. And you’ll have three more tomorrow too. I’ll be working late tonight as Allie has a basketball game at dinner time but I will be sure to have more good stuff to listen to tomorrow.

Lance Willix tells me how his Saturday was going at Airborne and his hopes for Utica Rome today.
John Waters talks about a big job he was doing on Saturday and the new Late Model for this season.

Well that was quite the day on Saturday. Snow, rain and cold led to multiple cancellations but Fonda, Airborne and Lebanon Valley all did get cars on the track. Kudos to everyone who stood up to the cold on Saturday, you are heartier than me as I was happy to stay home and warm inside.

After watching a little baseball I got to work in the studio after feeling like I was catching a cold on Friday. I’ve been feeling that way for about a week now but feel better today. My wife caught it but she is the only one in the house who is sick right now. Let’s hope it stays that way.

Butch Getz tells me how nice it was to start his season out with a second place at Five Mile Point.

It is gonna be a cold and windy day and as of the time I typed this up at 8 p.m. both Fonda and Land of Legends are still a go for today although I would be sure to check their websites before you head out the door. I’ll be doing pit reporting at Canandaigua and I have my winter gear ready. Hat, gloves, winter jacket and several packages of hot hands will be needed today and tonight for us hearty race fans. Maybe I’ll try to find one of those face socks before I go.
 
Let’s hope the weather people are off by a few degrees on their predictions and let’s hope for a safe night at the tracks that are holding their season openers tonight. Be safe, have fun and stay warm guys and gals. When July gets here we’ll wish we had a cool breeze like we’ll get today.
 
Now let’s chat more about what is on the Audio Page for today starting with a driver who got his comeback off to a nice start.
