   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Claude Hutchings Jr. talked about last weekend’s race at Watkins Glen and his hopes for Friday.
Eddie White previews Friday at Five Mile Point and wonders about a possible move up for 2015.
 
We have more good stuff for you today as we show some love to the Sportsman teams that will run in the Race of Champions finale this weekend at Five Mile Point Speedway. Let’s hope Mother Nature is a race fan this weekend and that the forecasts we are seeing now are not accurate.
 
If you’re heading to Charlotte I’ve been told to pack like you are going to a race in the northeast. It is going to be cold down there so bring your jackets and winter hats. You’ll need them.
 
I have a new article online today and you can see it at www.syracuse.com/motorsports or read it in the Syracuse Post Standard. It is available at newsstands today.
 
Now let’s find out more about the two chats I have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page. I start with a young man who is maybe better on the road courses than he is on dirt. Or is he? Claude Hutchings Jr. talked about last weekend’s race at Watkins Glen, how he hurt his chances with a mistake pulling onto the racetrack and his hopes for Friday’s RoC finale at Five Mile Point. 
 
Eddie White previews Friday at Five Mile Point, talks about a change with his race team and wonders about a possible move up to Modified for 2015.

Billy Van Pelt chats about his multi-win season and how fortunate he was to have quality rides.
Bob Henry Jr. talks about his exhaust systems and encourages teams to see him at Parts Peddler.
Joe Skotnicki previews the World Finals at Charlotte and talks about the tight point battle.
 
We are at the halfway point of the week and as you read this many of dirt track racing’s top teams are either on their way to Charlotte or already there. The World Finals begins tomorrow and runs through Friday and Saturday.
 
Of course our DIRTcar Modifieds are as tight as can be at the top with Billy Decker and Matt Sheppard separated by just one point while Brett Hearn sits 52 markers back. It will be quite a finale.
 
The sad part is that the racing world will say goodbye to Steve Kinser as he is retiring from the World of Outlaws. Kinser has been the man in Sprint Car racing since the World of Outlaws was formed and he is the most recognizable name in the dirt world. We wish you well sir and thanks for all you have done to entertain fans throughout the years.

It is going to be a great weekend and I am so jealous of all of you who get to go down to Charlotte. One of these years I am going to make it down there to see the track and tour the area. Plus Donnie Wetmore is still down at the Richard Petty Driving Experience and I would kill to be able to do that. Yeah, I need to set that trip up.
