I have a busy week coming up but it will be fun as we begin the next step on our journey. With the skills I’ll pick up in these next few weeks I should be able to start the first video and get better at what it takes to do those and do them right. It’s is gonna be a fun few weeks.

Max Hill described his 1st season in a Late Model and his plans to race the entire season at Fulton.

We had a nice day as the kids had a half day which allowed me to take Allie to RPM Speedway in Destiny USA in Syracuse. She enjoyed it tremendously and if you are Jonesing without racing this is a nice fix to keep you sharp and have some fun. There are locations in Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo so check it out sometime. I know you’ll like it.
 
I’ll be back at it today as I have two interviews already set up with hopes to a half a dozen if all goes well. And we’ll be back in the studio again tomorrow and Monday while sneaking a look at the 24 hour race from Daytona. Yep, we’re one step closer as of this weekend.

Dylan Swiernick tells me what he is doing as he gets ready for a 12-15 race season with his 360.
Nick Krause talked about his Sportsman plans for 2018 and wonders if he’ll get a W-16 engine.

We’re back on a Friday with a pair of drivers who compete in two of the most popular forms of racing in New York State. In addition to these I was also able to get a few more done later in the day so I am a little ahead coming into the weekend.
 
If you missed it, the 24 hours of Daytona is this weekend so the start of your favorite form of racing is right around the corner. I’ll be watching the start and of course the finish on Sunday as it is one of my favorite races of the year. NASCAR could learn from the Continental Tire Series as those are real templates on those stock cars.

I’ll be back in the studio today hoping to get lots done and hoping to get some of the ones done that I had to reschedule. Still doing great here. Happy and on task. Life is good!
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as we start with a racer who teaches me something about the long term durability of Sprint Car engines. Dylan Swiernick tells me what he is doing as he gets ready for a 12-15 race season with his 360, describes the work he is doing to get his engine ready and explains why they need frequent freshening. I didn’t know that! 

Nick Krause talked about his Sportsman plans for 2018, wonders if he’ll get a W-16 engine and makes a prediction on how popular small block racing at Fulton will be.
