It was another nice day on Wednesday and I was pretty sore after bowling five games on Tuesday night. I bought a new urethane ball and needed to get some oil on it so it would calm down so the people at Flamingo Bowl were nice enough to let me get on the breakdown pair with fresh oil to get the ball worked in. Thanks guys!
 
I did three interviews as you can see and all of those I put up today. I have some things set up for later today too so be sure to check back to see who we may chat with along the way today. And I did get in a conversation with Alan Johnson right as I was typing this up so look for that tomorrow as well.

Now let’s discuss what we have for you on the Audio Page today as we highlight some stock car racers. P.J. Peters talks about racing his Pro Stock more in 2019, why he misses the mile track at Syracuse so much and remembers his start in racing in a Street Stock back in 1994.

Les Smith describes some changes he made to his Hobby Stock, tells me some of what he learned about is in 2018 and remembers leading all but one lap in what could have been a victory at Woodhull.

Pat O’Brien reacted to his upcoming induction into the Dirt Motorsports Hall of Fame this summer.
Ricky Newton talked about the work he has to do on his Sportsman and his quest for an early win.

I had a nice day off on Tuesday and spent it with my kids in the afternoon and then finished off with a fun night of bowling as our season now has just one week left.

Got a pair of good ones today which include a nice one with Pat O’Brien as he gets ready for a big day later this summer. I’ll be back in studio today looking for more to do as we continue to inch closer and closer to the start of the racing season here in the northeast. Don’t worry, it will be here before you know it.
 
Now let’s chat more about what is on the Audio Page for today as we begin with a future Hall of Famer. Pat O’Brien reacted to his upcoming induction into the Dirt Motorsports Hall of Fame this summer, remembered how he and his younger brother Danny got their first car together and why he decided to call it a career after the 2016 season.

Steve Paine talks about the work he is doing in his shop and how Microd racing helped his son.
Tony Veneziano reports on the World of Outlaw Sprint Car Series as rain won again last weekend.

It was another nice day on Monday as all the snow that fell is now gone and melted away into the storm sewers. Good riddance snow and we hope we don’t see you again till next November at the earliest.
 
We’re back starting out today with a really good one from a perspective that only a racing dad would know. Steve Paine and I got to know each other better in 2017 when his oldest son Billy ran for a brief time with the Syracuse Microd Club. And after you listen to this one I encourage you to look into doing something like this with your kids as it is a great situation.
 
So, let’s get right to it then and talk more about that interview which is first up on the Audio Page for today. Steve Paine talks about the work he was doing in his shop this past weekend, runs down the family’s race plans for 2019 and explained how a short time in Microd racing really helped his son. Really good one here!

It was a super nice day on Sunday and I got to get out and shoot some hoops will Allie and watch lots of hoops as well although the second round games were not nearly as exciting as the first round was. Still the tourney is maybe the greatest event in sports today.

The big storm that was supposed to the next bomb cyclone ended up dropping about three inches of snow here in Central New York. The snowblower was not needed as almost all of it melted under the sun on Saturday. Let’s hope this is the last time I use that word till sometime in November. Keep your fingers crossed.
 
I got a lot done on Saturday as I got very busy in the studio and I hope to be very busy again today. As I wrote this up I am getting ready for some friends to stop over to watch some games tonight. Let’s hope they are competitive and fun to watch. And we’ll be doing more of that today as well.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a man who already has six races in so far this year. Demetrios Drellos remembered his races last weekend at Georgetown that included a top ten on Sunday, his four races earlier in the year at Volusia in February and looks ahead to Can Am in three weeks.

Nick Stone gets teased by Luke Horning before the two talk seriously about coils versus leaf springs.

We had another fun day on Friday as basketball was the center of our activities. There were some big upsets and some great games. And with the weather like it is with nothing happening on the local dirt tracks this weekend at least I have something to do. Melt quickly snow. We need you gone in a few weeks please.
 
I have a pair of really nice interviews up for you today and will have more tomorrow including a chat with the new co-promoter at The Ridge. And I’ll be in studio this afternoon in between games getting ore for you for tomorrow.
 
And don’t forget that there are a bunch of fund raisers this weekend for racers we know well. Please do your best to support them as they get everything in order for the coming season. Hope you all have a great day and don’t have too much snow to move.

Matt Rich had his Sportsman in display last weekend and talked about racing and working in racing.
Devon Camenga talked about his Pro Stock travels last year and ran down his plans for this season.

What a fun day it was for me on Thursday as I got to visit with an old friend for a while and see some great college basketball games. It was fun from top to bottom and I can’t wait to do it all over again today.
 
Speaking of today that little storm they’ve been talking about now sounds like it could be a little more of a bother. They are predicting 6-10 inches of snow for us here and I am ready for what I hope will be the last time the snow blower will be needed this month. I know a lot of you are too! Darn…
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page for you today as we get ready for a cold, snowy weekend. Matt Rich had his Sportsman in display last weekend in Rottterdam and talked about racing from the driver’s seat and remembers starting his career in a 1971 Charger back in 1986.
