Dean Reynolds tells us the only change voted in during the driver’s meetings for the ESS.
Steve Poirier talks about winning his 7th ESS Championship and remembers one interview.
Jason Barney finished second in ESS points and talked about his season and his many friends.

I had a great time last night as Allie and I headed to Vernon Down Resort & Casino for the Empire Super Sprint’s Banquet. It was great to see all of you but at events like this I never get the chance to say hi to everyone. If I missed you please send me a message either here or on facebook and we’ll be sure to tell your story.

It was Allie’s first banquet as Camille was on a wine tour for a friend’s birthday. Only thing now is that Allie wants to go to all the banquets as she had a wonderful time. She loved it when emcee Mike Mallet teased me (and goosed me on his way in too.) and Utica Rome Speedway co-owner Bill Shea. Yeah Bill, that macaroni and cheese was real good.

We got a lot done in the hour we had beforehand and I did record some of Mike’s chats with the drivers too. I’ll split those up over the next few days and I am going to be back in the studio again this afternoon. Again, just message me and I’ll work you in.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with news from a meeting that took place earlier in the day. Dean Reynolds tells us the only change voted in during the driver’s meetings for the ESS, how well the season went and why he thinks Sprint Car racing is so strong in the northeast & Canada.  

Steve Poirier talks about winning his 7th ESS Championship, when he decided to race more rather than scale back and remembers one particular interview where he tried to be a little more colorful. Oops!  

Jason Barney finished second in ESS points with three A-Main victories and talked about his season with the tour and the many ways he and his fellow racers bond throughout the season.
