   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Neal Williams talks about Atlantic City, looks ahead to Volusia and a new class at New Egypt.
Casey Pavlick gets interviewed as Sportsman champion at the Yates County Speedway banquet. 
Jeremy Potrzebowski talks with Mel Thomas after winning the Street Stock Championship.
 
We’re back with three new chats for you today as we get ready for another blast of winter weather here in Central New York. It sounds like we could get well over a foot between today and Tuesday and I say let it snow. I love it at this time of the year although when it gets to March I will have had enough. But for now, go ahead Mother Nature.
 
I have a nice chat up today with a driver who will be heading down to Florida soon and will also be racing in a new class at New Egypt. Crate powered wingless Sprint Cars should be a blast and it will be interesting to see how they do.
 
The big news that I missed was a change to New Jersey state law that now allows 16 and 17 year olds to race. Previously it has been 18 as a minimum. You do need to call your track and race in front of the state troopers first to show you can do it, but this could change a lot and lead to more racing in The Garden State.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a man who will be very busy this coming season. Neal Williams talks about his nice run in the finale at Atlantic City, looks ahead to Volusia and racing in a new wingless Sprint Car class at New Egypt. 
 
Casey Pavlick gets interviewed by Mel Thomas as Sportsman champion at the Yates County Speedway banquet.
 
Jeremy Potrzebowski talks with Mel Thomas after winning the Street Stock Championship as well as how some good luck helped him at Yates County.

Once again things got away from me on Friday. My wife had an appointment that took most of the day and I was there to help get her through it. No worries we hope but the days in between are always stressful waiting for news, or no news or whatever they might say. So if you could, throw us into your good thoughts as we can always use some extra help. Thank you.
 
Also a big thank you goes out to Steve Ovens from Turn 5 Live as he once again gave us a bunch of stuff to listen to today. I WILL get in the studio today as I have nothing pressing on my schedule. I’ll head over to Strike N’ Spare at some point to root on a couple of friends in the Post Standard Masters bowling tournament and get right to work after that.

A big thanks goes out to Steve Ovens for the new audio and to Dan Pilat from Pilat Graphic Design for his help with our new website. To watch him work is to watch a true artist. What he did in just a few minutes was amazing. Thanks Dan!
 
I still have 7 chats from Steve Ovens and they will be up over the next few days. I’ll be busy this weekend too so please keep those emails and facebook suggestions coming. We’ll do our best to get to them.

We had a fun day on Wednesday as I wrote up a new column for the Syracuse Post Standard, headed out to see Dan Pilat for some website logo work and got to wrap things up with a chat in the studio.
 
Yes, it was a productive day and I hope today is as well. My wife is working and Allie has an orchestra rehearsal tonight so I will only have a small window to get some interviews done. Fortunately I have about 12 interviews left in the can from our friend Steve Ovens so I may have to lean on them for tomorrow. One way or another, we’ll have lots of good stuff up for you.
 
As for the new logo, we have two to choose from. Both of them are on my Facebook page so go and let me know which one you like. I already know which one I like but enough people disagree with me, I’ll switch. Only thing is I won’t tell ya which one. So go and vote today.

Thanks to Steve Ovens for all the Black Rock stuff and we’ll have more from Steve later this week.
 
Of course we’ll be in the studio again today and we’ll be heading out to see Dan Pilat as we get things together for our redesign of the website. Dan is one of the most talented people I know and not just with graphics, he is also a wizard on the bowling lanes too.
 
And news came out about the Central New York Sportsman Alliance that includes Brewerton, Canandaigua, Fulton, Utica Rome and Weedsport. This should allow a class that is already growing by leaps and bounds to grow even more.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Eldon Payne talked about some gains he made last year and why he’ll add a new weekly track.
Lance Yonge described what he has been doing since he stopped racing and who he has been helping.
 
The work week is now in full swing just like I’ll be later on today in the home studio. After a day off for the Supper Bowl and a somewhat easy Monday (bowling is hard all of a sudden.) I’m ready to get back at it today.
 
Racing will really heat up here soon too as things in Georgia and Florida are happening in the next few weeks. The long wait will be over for some but for those of us trapped in the snow and cold it still can seem like a lifetime till we’re back doing what we love so much.
 
It will be soon and the wait will make it that much better. “Good things come to those who wait,” is what dad used to drill into us as kids. So sit back, enjoy some extra family time and know that we’ll be getting going soon enough.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today starting with a man who is feeling pretty good right now about what he learned last season. Eldon Payne talked about some gains he made last year and why he’ll add a new weekly track to his routine in an effort to get more seat time. 
 
Lance Yonge described what he has been doing since he stopped racing, how busy things happening locally have kept him who he has been helping with some set up advice.

I was smart and did a lot of work on Saturday so I did not have to hustle yesterday to catch people on what was a very busy day. The two chats I have up for today were recorded then as well as the two you’ll get today. I hope you like them.
 
And be sure to see my facebook page to see our new logo for the new site. You fans of Late Models, Sprint Cars and Stock Cars will like that you are now included on t he new logo.
