Tim Fuller talks about his successful trip to Florida and his plans to race three days this weekend.
Rocky Warner tells me about his plans to race three shows this weekend and how he is feeling.

What do you know? We finally had a rain free day and it now sounds like we may have a bunch of rain free days coming our way. Finally huh?

I plan on going to Canandaigua on Friday and Utica Rome on Sunday and who knows, maybe I’ll be able to swing the clubs on Saturday and do my two favorite summer things all on the same weekend. Keep your fingers crossed.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today as we visit with two drivers who can’t wait to get back on the track.   Tim Fuller talks about his successful trip to Florida, his plans to race three days this weekend and how the racing surface at Canandaigua has improved since he ran as a regular 8 years ago.  

Rocky Warner tells me about his plans to race three shows this weekend, how much better he is feeling these last few weeks and how he knew he was ready to race again.

Bobby Varin describes what he needs to get done for the Glen Ridge opener and Fonda’s practice.
Charlie Tibbitts talks about his goals for his rookie season at Utica Rome and his background.

I will be back in the studio today after a day off on Tuesday. And we officially closed on the house we are in now and officially sold the old one as well. It will be nice to have one National Grid bill instead of two that’s for sure.

On the site today we have a driver who has raced for decades and another one who is just getting started in the highly competitive Sportsman division. I hope you enjoy them both.

I am still holding out hope that we can get to the track this weekend as it should dry out in the next couple of days. Keep your fingers crossed and hopefully the long off season will finally be over and not a minute to soon I might add.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page for today. Bobby Varin describes what he needs to get done for the Glen Ridge opener on Friday, Fonda’s practice on Saturday and runs down where we will see him race in 2016.  

Charlie Tibbitts talks about his goals for his rookie season as a 12 year old in the Sportsman division at Utica Rome and his background as a driver.

Nick Krause explains how the rain & snow has actually helped him get his Sportsman ready.
Tony Veneziano gives us an overview of the World of Outlaws season so far after two rainouts.

It was yet another rainy day on Monday but the good news is that things look to be better later this week. A lot of tracks have their openers on tap and hopefully it won’t rain too much and saturate the ground too much and we can finally go racing.

If everything works out I plan on hitting Canandaigua either Friday or Saturday and then Utica Rome on Sunday. Like I’ve been saying, this off season has been more of a grind than most to me so I cannot wait to get back out to the tracks and see all of you. I miss it so much!

Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page for today starting with the interview that gave me the idea for today’s column in the Syracuse Post Standard and online at Syracuse.com. Nick Krause explains how the rain & snow has actually helped him get his Sportsman ready as he prepares for the Canandaigua opener this weekend.  

Tony Veneziano gives us an overview of the World of Outlaws season so far after two rainouts and evaluates how the top drivers are doing as well as how the new format is working.

Bret Belden tells me how he is feeling after suffering from clogged arteries and quitting smoking.
Frank Hyatt talks about his converted Pro Stock, the work he has to do and how he does with it.

We made it through another weekend without racing here in Central New York but we do have a lot on the docket for the coming weekend so let’s all hope we get a break and can finally get out and see some real racing.

I was able to get some work done while watching The Masters and drooling over the fact that people are outside enjoying the weather. I have two things I love to do in the summer and they are racing and golf and now I can’t do either.

The off season gets harder for me at this time of the year and I really need to get out more. If some of you are looking form some company in the shop this week please get ahold of me as I going a little stir crazy. I love my new house but I do need to get out of it more. Message me guys!

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a man who has made some big lifestyle changes recently and for all the right reasons. Bret Belden tells me how he is feeling after suffering from clogged arteries and quitting smoking as he gets ready to get racing again in the Late Model division.  

Frank Hyatt talks about his Pure Stock that he converted to a Pro Stock, the work he has to do and wonders about a tire change for the coming season.

Doug Manmiller tells me about his win in the Big Diamond opener and his 13th at Grandview.
Nick Nye talks about running more Modified races in 2016 and thinks back on his start in racing.

I had a fun day on Saturday as I was able to get out for a while and do so on a sunny day. Hey, it didn’t snow so yes, it was cold but it didn’t snow. I’ll take that for now ok?

On the site today we have a pair of drivers that have already raced this year but are off this weekend for obvious reasons. I have yet to see anything live so far and hope this weekend we can change that because I really do need to get out of my little rut here. This time of year is always tough as I am ready to go but Mother Nature is not.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as we wind down our weekend. Doug Manmiller tells me about his win in the Big Diamond opener, his 13th at Grandview the next night and describes how an early victory can boost a driver’s spirits.

Nick Nye talks about running more Modified races in 2016, what broke at The Hard Clay Open last weekend and thinks back on his start in racing at Skyline in a stock car.

Paul Kinney talks about his hopes for the coming season with the ESS and his pair of Sprinters.
Jessica Power explains how adding a soft tire track should help her on the Sportsman series.

May not be much going on this weekend as Mother Nature has caused massive cancellations. The long range forecast is a little better but it may still be a while before we race here in CNY. Keep your fingers crossed!

Everything is back to normal here and Camille is doing much better. She did not make it through the whole day on Friday but did get back to work for most of the day. By today and Monday she’ll be back in full swing. Thanks to all of you for your well wishes and prayers. Everything will be just fine!!!

I was able to get some work done nuce and early on Friday so I got to spend some time with the girls and watch a movie with them. I love introducing them to some of my favorites and Allie and Katie have learned to trust me when it comes to movie choices. Cool.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page today starting with a racer who is in great shape for the coming season. Paul Kinney talks about his hopes for the coming season with the ESS, his pair of Sprinters and the types of racetracks he tends to do well at. His first race is April 22nd at Outlaw Speedway.  

Jessica Power explains how adding a soft tire track like Fulton Speedway should help her on the Sportsman series and her hopes to better her top 5 finish on the series. Her first race is set for next weekend at Canandaigua.

Kenny Gates tells me how a late season wreck almost ruined his season and his brand new Pro Stock.
Bill Shea talks about the get together at the Speedway Club taking place this Saturday in Vernon.  

We had a good day here as Camille was feeling much better after her surgery on Wednesday. She will be back to work today and hopes to make it through the whole day. Thanks to everyone for understanding and it worked out as well as things could have as I got to spend some time in the studio after dinner time.

The weather outside is still the big story right now as cancellations are widespread in racing and not just here in the northeast. The Midwest has also seen we and cold and many events there are in the same boat as we are here. It was horrible for Mother Nature to tease us like she did and give us all that nice weather in March. I need to have a chat with her about that.

Now let’s talk about who I chatted with on Thursday that is up on the Audio Page for you to listen to right now. Kenny Gates tells me how a late season wreck almost ruined his season, how he got the car back on the track weeks later and his brand new Pro Stock for 2016. Good story here guys!  

Bill Shea talks about why Utica Rome cancelled their practice set for this Saturday and replaced it with a get together at the Speedway Club out front of the speedway taking place this Saturday from 4 p.m.-12 a.m. in Vernon.
