New on the Audio Page for today:

Chad O’Hara talks about his new fabrication business and how his racing skills helped at work.
Stephen Denton remembers his 2016 season and talks about his upcoming race at Road Atlanta.

Allie and I had fun yesterday as we watched the end of the Rolex 24 from Daytona. What a story huh? Jeff Gordon and his young teammates got the win in what was one of the best finishes in quite some time.

After that I got to work in the studio and got a few more interviews done before watching the end of the golf. I will be back at it again today and back writing again as we have Atlantic City to talk about. And from what I hear Saturday night’s race indoors was a great one with a photo finish to boot. What a great way for Lenny’s series to end.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with an email request. Chad O’Hara talks about his new fabrication business, how his racing skills helped at work and his hopes to race more in the future. Good one here guys!  

Stephen Denton remembers his 2016 season, talks about his upcoming race at Road Atlanta and what he plans to do with his Sportsman in 2017.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Nick Stone talks about his ten win season, his fabrication business and his 2017 race plans.
Wade Chrisman describes his season at Fulton, his new car and why he cut his season short.

I had another real good day on Saturday as I got alot of interviews done in the studio and as I write this up I am going to watch the SU basketball game on the dvr. I know I am just being superstitious but they seem to do better when I don’t watch. We’ll see if that trend continues.

I will be back hard at work today and will be looking for anyone you’d like to hear from. I’ll have a request up tomorrow and hope to et a few more done today. So either send me a message on Facebook or to doug@dougsdirtdiary.com.

Also today I will be sure to check out the end of the Rolex 24 from Daytona. And of course after that we’ll dig out the old Grand Turismo 6 game and turn a few laps at the Daytona road course. It has always been one of my favorites especially the chicane on the backstretch. Hit that right and you’ll be fast. Hit it wrong and you will have to hit the reset button.

Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page as we begin with one of the northeast’s best stock car racers. Nick Stone talks about his ten win season that saw him victorious at five different tracks, his fabrication business and his 2017 race plan that will a change in Friday’s home.  

Wade Chrisman describes his season in a crate Sportsman at Fulton, why he had to get a new car and why he cut his season short in 2016. Nice to have you over Wade let’s do it again soon!

New on the Audio Page for today:

Glenn Forward talked about his five win season and what helped him improve from 2015.
Cody Clark ran down why he switched plans at mid season and the old car that is still fast.

Once again the snow we had predicted was little more than a dusting and was all melted by lunchtime. I hear some of you out there are getting some and in some cases it is piling up so be careful out there guys and gals.

I got a good amount of work done on Friday as I was able to get ahead by one interview and was able to actually do one in the home studio which does not happen much. Look for that chat with Wade Chrisman tomorrow.

I also turned in my application to the Post Standard Masters bowling tournament here in Syracuse. I have never made it into the top 127 for match play but am hopeful that the new ball and new wrist position might be the ticket this time around. I’ll be bowling with a good friend of mine who just shot his 7th perfect game but he has never made the cut either. Wish us well and maybe, just maybe I can make the cut for the first time ever.

Now let’s chat more about what you can listen to on out Audio Page as we kick off the weekend today. Glenn Forward talked about his five win season in a crate Sportsman, what helped him improve from 2015 and how his dirt racing background helps him at work.  

Cody Clark ran down why he switched plans at mid season, why he had to switch to an older car and how well that old car that used to be in the weeds did when he needed it.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Tommy Sears talks about the new car he is working on and compares his two weekly homes.
Dean Catlin talks about Skyline’s move to Fridays and previews this year’s tentative schedule.

It is almost time! Racing kicks off later tonight in Atlantic City with the third and final Lenny Sammons indoor Midget races. They race both tonight and tomorrow and I know a lot of you are going to be there. We hope you all have a great time!

And from looking at some online sites I see that some of you are down in Daytona Beach as well for tomorrow’s Rolex 24. That is one of my favorite races of the year and always signals that more racing is coming to Florida in the next few weeks. I know where I’ll be Saturday & Sunday and that will be watching Daytona in between interviews.

Now let’s talk more about the pair of conversations I have up for you on the Audio Page for today starting with a man who was working hard in his shop last night. Tommy Sears talks about the new car he is working on and compares his two weekly homes especially what happens in the closing laps.  

Dean Catlin talks about Skyline’s move to Fridays, how the news was received by both drivers & fans and previews this year’s tentative schedule.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Elmo Reckner talks about his plans for 2017 and the newer car he is hoping to race more.
Ernie Saxton talks about this weekend in Daytona, Atlantic City and NASCAR’s new race format.

It is going to be a fun weekend for sure. Indoor racing in Atlantic City and the first big national race of the year, the Rolex 24 takes place in Daytona. I’ll be glued to the TV all weekend long as this 24 hour road race is one of my favorite events.

And with Jeff Gordon added to the mix ticket sales are up for the Rolex 24 and the infield is sold out for the first time in many years. How much did that do for ticket sales? Probably a lot. It will be fun to see how he does in just his second Rolex 24 start. Nice to be retired huh?

Today I will be back in the studio and have a few things already on tap. And I am hoping to get a lot done in the next few days as the start of racing in our area gets closer and closer.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we look ahead to racing here in the northeast. Elmo Reckner talks about his plans for 2017, the newer car he is hoping to race more after just a few races with it last year and why he may be hitting the road a little more.  

Ernie Saxton talks about this weekend’s Rolex 24 in Daytona, the Gambler’s Classic in Atlantic City and NASCAR’s new race format for the 2017 season.

Bobby Trapper explains why he did not race mush last year and his hopes to do more in 2017.
Lisa Williams runs down how she did in the Open Sportsman class and a scary crash she was in.

We are halfway through the work week as we get closer to the start of racing across this great country of ours. They are racing indoors this weekend in Atlantic City and of course the Rolex 24 is this weekend in Daytona. We’re almost there guys so be patient and before you know it we’ll have more racing going on that you could ever follow.

I am back at it again after a day off on Tuesday so I will be back in the studio and back writing again for tomorrow Syracuse Post Standard and Syracuse.com. I am excited about this weekend and always watch as much from Daytona as possible. That track is on several video games and I know it well which makes the race that much more fun to watch.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a man who can’t wait to get back to the track more this year. Bobby Trapper explains why he did not race mush last year, what they have to do to get ready to hit the track again and his hopes to do more racing with his son in 2017. He also wanted to give a special shout out to Jason Orlando for all his help!  

Lisa Williams runs down how she did in the Open Sportsman class in 2016, how she learned how to race at then I-88 Speedway and a scary crash she was in while trying to go under another car.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Dylan Cecce talks about his multi-win season, his new car and what he is doing in the off season.
Tony Veneziano reports on Sprint Car racing from Australia and gives us some Tony Stewart news.

It sounds like today could be an adventurous day! A classic Nor’ Easter is coming up the coast and should provide us with some ice and snow. My girls are hoping for a snow day and they did all the things you are supposed to do to ensure one. Wearing pajamas inside out and of course the cotton ball under the pillow. We’ll find out soon if they get their wish.

I know a lot of you having plowing businesses so I know a lot of you are excited to go out and make some money today. I know of several of you who had a rough year because of the lack of snow last year so let’s hope you can make some much needed racing or home money today.

I am off today as usual as I have bowling tonight as well as some online racing. It’s my standard Tuesday off and I am looking forward to getting back on the lanes and hopefully having a good night.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a driver I have not chatted with in quite some time. Dylan Cecce talks about his multi-win season at multiple race tracks, the new car he will drive this coming season and what he is doing in the off season to stay sharp.  

Tony Veneziano reports on Sprint Car racing from Australia as they run their biggest races of the year and gives us some Tony Stewart news.
