   New on the Audio Page from Syracuse:
 
Pre race conversations:
 
Rich Scagliotta summed up how his week is going and described a welding job taking place. 
Peter Britten talked about his practice sessions and how happy he was with his time trial effort. 
Ronnie Johnson spoke about his pair of Modifieds and what he has to do in each 20 lap qualifier. 
Brian McDonald was working on his 358 Modified and told me what went wrong on Thursday. 
Jeremy Wilder got ready for his 1st ever time at Syracuse in a big block and talked about his laps. 
Neal Williams won the pole for today’s 30 lap Sportsman race and thanked those who helped.
Kenny Tremont had some trouble with his small block and explained what they did to fix it. 
Bobby Hackell time trialed 4th with his Sportsman and talked about his former asphalt ride. 
Tim Sears Jr. will start fifth today and remembered what went wrong last year at this race. 
 
After the races:
 
Jimmy Blewett talked to Paul Szmal and myself about winning at Syracuse and the atmosphere. 
Cody McPherson won the first Sportsman Futures race and told Clinton Geoffrey all about it. 
Bobby Hackell got the win in the 2nd Futures Race and explained how getting a lot of laps helped.
Rick Achzet told Paul Szmal about taking 18 years off and winning the Pro Stock Futures Race.
Peter Britten spoke with me about his Modified win in the Futures Race and what he learned. 
Billy Decker celebrated his 20 lap win in victory lane and talked about chasing the early leader. 
Andy Bachetti ran in a lot of clean air and explained how important it was in his heat win. 
Billy Decker made it two for two on the day with another heat win and talked about night racing. 
Billy Dunn led all twenty laps on his way to a win and told me whether it was a surprise or not.
Pat Ward took the win in the final qualifying race and talked about looking forward to Sunday. 
 
It was a fun, fun day at Syracuse as Super DIRT Week XL got interesting with the first races of the event. The Futures started things out and were followed by five qualifying races for Modifieds. 
 
I concentrated a lot on interviews and since it was a night race, we were working hard to make sure we made our deadline at the Syracuse Post Standard which was 10:30. Things did run a little late, but the folks from DIRTcar were great at getting me the access I needed and we got the quotes we needed for the newspaper as well as for this website. Beautiful! Thanks so much guys.
 
Billy Decker continued his domination as he won both the 358 and Modified qualifiers. Although he was chasing Matt Sheppard in the first one and if Matt did not get a vibration and begin losing oil pressure, you don’t know how that one would have gone. But remember, the top six were locked in regardless of what happened unless they trashed their car and had to go to a back up.
 
I was able to get all five of the winners as Paul Szaml from DTD and I tag teamed them right when they got out of the car. But again, we would not have been able to do that without Chris Dolack making sure we got the opportunity. It worked out great as I was able to go right back and make sure those quotes made it into today’s paper.
 
I also got the Futures Race winners as well as three of the top Sportsman qualifiers. It was such a busy day and I was so busy gathering and relaying information it was tough. Today should be a little easier as I have settled into a nice routine but until we raced I could not find a rhythm. There is no place like Syracuse.
 
I put up some more photos as well as some that J Fish sent in. Earlier I put up a bin from Rick Young who was also there today. I had a great time and even though we were super busy at Super DIRT Week, it is a great time like always. 
 
Today the Nationwide Insurance 150 is on the card and it is going to be a dandy. Plus the Sportsman finish out the day with a 30 lap feature. At night the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series runs at Rolling Wheels along with a win and you’re in Modified race. 
 
It’s a great time to be a race fan. I hope you enjoy the new audio and the photos too. And be sure to come back tomorrow as I am not writing as much this time around and letting the content tell the story. Enjoy and I hope to see you today.

   New on the Audio Page from Syracuse:
 
Before time trials:
 
Brian Carter addressed the media at the press conference and talked about Super DIRT Week XL. 
Shane Andrews spoke about some of the past winners who were honored at the press conference. 
Tom Deery talked about some of the history of the race and how fortunate he is to follow his passion.
Adam Ross tells us what Dirt Track Digest will be doing to cover the events of Super DIRT Week. 
Jimmy Phelps described how his Modified felt in the practice as he took a break for lunch. 
Rob Bellinger ran some Modified practice laps in the morning and talked about a change he made. 
Kenny Brightbill was honored at the press conference and spoke about his season down south.
Steve Hulsizer worked hard on Wednesday and explained how they turned a frame into a racecar.

After the time trials:
 
Billy Decker set fast time for the 358’s with a 31.517 and told me about the improving racetrack.
Andy Bachetti was second on the 358 Modified time trials and talked about what he said to Billy.
Willy Decker began tearing his car down for inspection and described his fourth place in time trials. 
Matt Sheppard described his fifth place lap in time trials and what they had to fix beforehand. 
Billy Decker reacted to beating Billy Dunn by just .009 seconds in the Modified time trials. 
Billy Dunn was happy after time trialing second and wondered if he had maybe just a little more. 
Pat Ward time trialed in third place and explained how some advice helped him get faster. 
Stewart Friesen was fourth in the Modified time trials and talked about his pair of real good cars. 
 
It was a fun day at Syracuse as great weather and a nice, fast racetrack greeted us all. And one driver did something that only two others have done as Billy Decker won the pole in both the 358 and Modified divisions. Do you know who the other two are? I’ll tell you down the page a little.
 
I got interviews with Decker after both his accomplishments and those are up with a whole bunch of other audio clips including a few from the press conference. All of what I did yesterday is up on the site today as well as about a hundred or so photos that I took during my day at Super DIRT Week. 
 
Of course with this website and my job writing for the Syracuse Post Standard, I don’t get done working till close to ten o’clock so unfortunately I cannot cover the night events. But I do try to make up with it in volume from Syracuse. So again, not a lot of writing here today but be sure to check out our latest at www.syracuse.com/motorsports.  
 
So I hope you enjoy the eighteen clips up for today and be sure to come back for more tomorrow. Although it will be later as we race under the lights tonight. I’ll do my work for the paper at the track and then head home to get the work done for here. It will probably be after midnight before you see anything, but it will be here. That I promise. 
 
Oh, and the other two drivers who won pole positions for both races were Brett Hearn in 2002 and Joe Plazek in 1997. But neither driver won either race that year. Will it change this time around? We’ll find out this weekend. 
 
Now let’s chat more about what is new for today on the Audio Page. I begin with some of what us media guys heard Wednesday at lunch time. And yes, the wings from Quaker Steak & Lube were very good.  Brian Carter addressed the media at the press conference and talked about Super DIRT Week XL. Lots of good information here about this year and beyond. 
 
Shane Andrews spoke about some of the past winners who were honored at the press conference. This is a real nice clip. Wish I had the video so you could see it! 
 
Tom Deery talked about some of the history of the race at Syracuse and how fortunate he is to be able to follow his passion. I know what you mean Tom! 
 
Adam Ross tells us what Dirt Track Digest will be doing to cover the events of Super DIRT Week. Hit the link on the left side of my frontpage to check them out. 
 
Jimmy Phelps described how his Modified felt in the practice as he took a break for lunch on a very busy Thursday at Syracuse. 
 
Rob Bellinger ran some Modified practice laps in the morning and talked about a change he made and where he hoped his car would get better. 
 
Kenny Brightbill was honored at the press conference and spoke about his one win season down south at Delaware International.   Oh, he’ll be back I’d bet! 
 
Steve Hulsizer worked hard on Wednesday with his team and explained how they turned a frame into a racecar in about twenty four hours. Nice! 
 
Chris Raabe has been racing on asphalt recently and talked about how his 358 Modified was in practice Thursday morning at Syracuse. 
 
Dale Planck won the Modified race Wednesday in Weedsport and told me about a lane change that helped get him to the front.  
 
Billy Decker set fast time for the 358’s with a 31.517 and told me about the improving racetrack that was continuing to get faster. 
 
Andy Bachetti was second on the 358 Modified time trials and talked about what he said to Billy Decker as they posed for photographs with the media. 
 
Willy Decker began tearing his car down for inspection and described his fourth place in time trials for the Nationwide 150 on Saturday at Syracuse. 
 
Matt Sheppard described his fifth place lap in time trials, what they had to fix earlier in the day and how his big block felt in hot laps. 
 
Billy Decker reacted to beating Billy Dunn by just .009 seconds in the Modified time trials and becoming just the third driver to win the pole twice in one day at Syracuse. 
 
Billy Dunn was happy after time trialing second and wondered if he maybe just a little more in it because of a small carburetor issue. 
 
Pat Ward time trialed in third place and explained how some advice helped him get faster compared to the earlier practice sessions. 
 
Stewart Friesen was fourth in the Modified time trials, talked about his pair of real good cars and described something they had to fix on the big block. 

 
Thursday, October 6th 2011
   New on the Audio Page from Syracuse:
 
Larry Fink talks about the front stretch at Syracuse and what they were doing to dry it out.
Matt Sheppard spoke about pit strategy, the two cars he has with him and a busy Thursday.
Stewart Friesen remembered his win in the 200 last year and talked about bringing that car back. 
Rick Laubach described the new Modified he brought to Syracuse and discussed his strategies. 
Darwin R. Greene told me why he wanted to try Syracuse this year and what he did last year.
Vic Coffey will have a very busy day on Thursday and talked about the three racecars he’ll drive.

Wayne Jelley had his familiar 45 in the pit area and explained why he cut his weekly racing short. 
Travis Braun summed up how he did at Merrittville and why his Modified looks like a 57 Chevy.
Billy Dunn worked on some tires and told me what sent him to the pits last year while in the top 10. 
 
It was a bright a sunny day on Wednesday but there action was kept in the pit area and everywhere but the racetrack as wet conditions on the front stretch delayed the start of Super DIRT Week until today.
 
But don’t get me wrong, there was a lot of work going on as teams took advantage of the extra time to do some extra work. Be sure to listen to the eleven chats on the site today to hear about that extra work and what the drivers think about their chances at this year’s race.
 
I even got to speak with track groomer Larry Fink about the racetrack and why it was in the shape it was in. No kidding. I did not know that. So give it a listen.
 
Also on the site are photographs from myself and Jeremiah Fish. There are about 150 in total so I hope you like those. They are all free for download as well so if you like any of them, they are yours.
 
Today’s schedule has changed by the way with extra practice sessions taking place right before the time trials at 2:45. And don’t forget that the top six for both Modified races will be determined from these time trials, so they are upmost importance.
 
As I said, I am not writing as much as the time crunch is on for me this week, so I’ll let the interviews and photos speak for themselves. 
 
Now let’s chat more about what is new for today on the Audio Page. I begin with an update on the track conditions with the man who is working on it. Larry Fink talks about the front stretch at Syracuse and what they were doing to dry it out to get it ready for Thursday’s on track action. 
 
Matt Sheppard spoke about pit strategy, the two cars he has with him in the pit area at Syracuse and a busy Thursday where he will race during the day as well as at night. 
 
Stewart Friesen remembered his win in the 200 last year and talked about bringing that car back with hopes of repeating at Syracuse again in 2011. 
 
Rick Laubach described the new Modified he brought to Syracuse, the familiar one he has a 358 in and discussed his strategies for this year’s event. 
 
Darwin R. Greene told me why he wanted to try Syracuse this year and explained how what he did last year on this weekend helped make the decision. 
 
Vic Coffey will have a very busy day on Thursday and talked about the three racecars he’ll drive at two different speedways. Lots of good stuff here! 
 
Tim McCreadie thought back on a recent Late Model win in CNY and told me about his hopes for this week with the three cars he will be piloting. 
 
Eddie Marshall ran down how his season went at Lebanon Valley and talked about his racecar for Syracuse that was also his regular weekly ride. 
 
Wayne Jelley had his familiar 45 in the pit area and explained why he cut his weekly racing short to be sure to be ready for Super DIRT Week. 
 
Travis Braun summed up how he did at Merrittville this season and why his Syracuse Modified looks just like a 1957 Chevy. Nice!

Wednesday, October 5th 2011
   New on the Audio Page from the inspection at Syracuse:
 
Ryan Godown talks about the cars he had in the line and described some changes they made. 
Michael Storms had a brand new Modified in the tech line and told me about his hopes for the week.
Brian McDonald told me about the small block he had with him and when they finished it.
Tom Sears Jr. brought out a familiar car to Syracuse and talked about the struggles he had in 2011.
Vinnie Vitale stood by his Modified and told me how little they had to do to get his car ready.

Matt Billings showed off his 358 Modified and explained why they were ahead of the game. 
Peter Britten will become the first Australian to compete on the mile and offered up his thoughts.
Paul Kirkland described what will be happening next weekend at the DIRTcar Fall Nationals. 
 
Super DIRT Week began on Tuesday as cars began the inspection process at the New York State Fairgrounds. Unfortunately the heavy rain the area has seen was too much for the mile track and as a result of that, today’s happy hour has been cancelled.
 
So that will give them teams some extra time to work on their cars and get ready for the Wednesday night show at Cayuga County that will see both the 358 and Sportsman Super DIRTCar Series as well as the Pizza Logs Micro Sprint Tour.
 
On the site today are eleven interviews as well as many new photos. Of course more will be going up so be sure to keep checking back as I will swing back once at mid afternoon and then do another bin at dinner time or so.
 
As I said I am not writing as much for here and letting the content speak for itself. You can read my daily columns for the Syracuse Post Standard by going to www.syracuse.com/motorsports and the official site for the event is www.superdirtweekonline.com.
 
Now let’s talk more about what is new for today on the Audio Page. I begin with a man who had a long haul to get to Syracuse. Ryan Godown talks about the cars he had in the line at Syracuse and described some changes they made to one of the rides.

Brian McDonald told me about the small block he had with him, when they finished it and described the final work they wrapped up Tuesday.

Vinnie Vitale stood by his Modified and told me how little they had to do to get his car ready after an early race jingle in last year’s race. 
 
Justin Haers got his car through inspection early as the third team in line and described what he would do with his Tuesday now that he was done. 
 
Rob Bellinger will run a big block at Syracuse for the first time and remembered back when he ran his Sportsman on the mile years ago. 
 
Dale Caswell was ahead of the game with his Sportsman and talked about the new chassis he had in the tech line at Syracuse. 
 
Matt Billings showed off his 358 Modified and explained why they were ahead of the game when it came to getting the car ready for Syracuse.

Tuesday, October 4th 2011
   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Joe Marotta shared some memories from the mile at Syracuse and the very first Super DIRT Week.
Cory Reed talks about the rained out Outlaw 200, the refund policy and Thursday at Brewerton. 
Bob Henry Jr. spoke about his hopes for last Friday and wonders where he will race this week.
Chris Fleming reflected on his championship season and talked about his favorite racetrack. 
 
It is hard to believe, but Super DIRT Week XL is here. Today the racecars will go through the inspection line and I will be there talking to drivers and taking photos. Keep checking the filmstrip at the side of the page as I will probably put the pictures up in two batches coming home sometime in the middle of the afternoon to do the first ones.
 
Now we are not going to be writing as much on the page this week but the goal is to give you more interviews and less to read. I have so much to do each day this week so I will focus more on the content rather than the descriptions I write for each clip. It will make it easier for me to do more.
 
And if you want more info, go to www.superdirtweekonline.com or www.syracuse.com/motorsports. Plus Dirt Track Digest will also be doing some coverage as well so you have lots of places to go. To get to them, click on their logo on the side of this page. And of course we’ll be doing a lot with the Syracuse Post Standard as well. 
 
Now let’s talk more about what is new on the Audio Page for today. I begin with a man who has been at this racetrack since he was a kid back in 1948. Joe Marotta shared some memories from the mile at Syracuse and the very first Super DIRT Week back in 1972. He talked about what makes the event so special, when he felt it really began to click with fans and how nice it has been to see both World of Outlaw Series added to the mix. As always, nice one with Joe who is the true dean of the CNY racing scene! 
 
Cory Reed talks about the rained out Outlaw 200, the refund policy and the Thursday show at Brewerton. He described what it was that made it so tough to run the show on Sunday at Fulton and ran down the rule changes for this Thursday’s Hurricane 100 compared to what it has been in the past. For refunds, send tickets to Fulton Speedway, PO Box 268, Baldwinsville, NY 13027. 
 
Bob Henry Jr. spoke about his hopes for last Friday at Fulton Speedway and wonders where he will race this week. He talked about his what he had lined up for the 200, how the opportunity came about and where we have seen the car race before. 
 
Chris Fleming reflected on his championship season and talked about his favorite racetrack. He wondered why things have fallen off the last few weeks, if he needs a new chassis for next year and why he changed his set up back to basics for the Fulton Speedway show. 

 
Monday, October 3rd 2011
   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Greg Belyea thought back on his past at Fulton and explained why he was not very superstitious. 
Gary Smith told me why he got back into racing this season after more than a decade off. 
Ryan Scott reflected on his four win season and described some changes he made to his IMCA Mod. 
Ronnie Davis III talked about his season in a Novice Sportsman and his hopes for Friday. 
Mark Johnston had a nervous stomach at Fulton and remembered his last time in a Sportsman. 
 
Well like a lot of race fans out there right now I am bummed out today as the Outlaw 200 was rained out on both Saturday and Sunday. There was already a lot of water in the infield Friday night and with the heavy rain that hit the area late Saturday and especially early Sunday they had no choice but to call it quits.
 
I have seen a few people tossing out possible dates for another chance at getting the show in but there is just not another date out there unless you start looking at November. And all of us who live here in Central New York know how cold and snowy that month usually is so unfortunately they had no options.
 
This is the first time in the history of the race that is has had to be cancelled due to weather. Twenty five times in a row they got it in so I guess something like this was bound to happen eventually. 
 
On the site for today is more from my Friday night at Fulton and today I will be back in the studio getting more new stuff ready for tomorrow. And of course Tuesday inspections begin for Super DIRT Week and yes, we will be ready and putting new photos up over the course of the day. Yep, it is that time!
 
Now let’s chat more about what is new for today on the Audio Page. I begin with a man who was hoping to come full circle on Friday night. Greg Belyea thought back on his past at Fulton and explained why he was not very superstitious about the color green. He told me how he won the first ever Crate Late Model race at the speedway last season, how important tires are and why he feels that what he had on the car on this night will not help him. 
 
Gary Smith told me why he got back into racing this season after more than a decade off. He talked about the last time he raced at Fulton back in the 90’s, why he chose to run an IMCA Modified this time around and how much different it is to drive. 
 
Ryan Scott reflected on his four win season and described some changes he made to his IMCA Modified. He also talked about his lack of laps at the Fulton Speedway, thought back to his last trip to the track and wondered how many more shows he may hit in the next few weeks. 
 
Ronnie Davis III talked about his season in a Novice Sportsman and his hopes for Friday. He told me how the car felt in the hot laps, how much he learned over the course of the season and how long it took him to get comfortable in the car. 
 
Mark Johnston had a nervous stomach at Fulton on Friday and remembered his last time in a Sportsman. He told me how the opportunity came about to drive the Katelyn Kane back up car, wondered how quickly it would come back to and described his goals for the night. 

 
Sunday, October 2nd 2011
   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Glenn Donnelly describes Central NY Motorsports Park and the three racetracks within the facility. 
Lee Gill talked about his championship season up north and his hopes for Outlaw Weekend. 
Jim LaRock told me about his season at Thunder Mountain and how a championship slipped away. 
Rich Keller had a great car in hot laps and remembered when he almost made the 200 lapper.
Mikey Nagel ran down how he did in a Sportsman at Penn Can and a Modified at Five Mile Point. 
Scott Ford explained how his experience in the Mod Lites helped him make the move up.
 
Saturday did not turn out rain free as we had hoped and it led to the postponement of the Outlaw 200 at the Fulton Speedway. The race will be run today with gates opening at 11 for the races, noon for the fans and hot laps at about 1:30. The estimated time for the green flag in the 200 lapper should he at around 5 PM.
 
So with an extra day off of sorts, I decided to call my former employer Glenn Donnelly. I received a press release about Central New York Motorsports Park and have been conversing with people involved in the project all summer long. Now you can hear my chat with Glenn and hear what is planned for this facility that will include a road course, a drag strip and a half mile synthetic dirt track. 
 
Also on the site today are five of the twelve conversations I had saved from Friday night at the Fulton Speedway. And I am hoping to stay dry and add several more to the bin today at the Outlaw 200, so keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best.
 
The other thing I did was visit the local ASPCA. I handled three kittens at the place and then sent my wife to check out the ones that I liked. She fell in love with the one that I liked the most too so she signed the paperwork and if everything goes well, we will be adopting the little guy this week. My daughters are going to name him Tiger and they are obviously very excited as we all are. 
 
Now let’s talk more about what is new for today on the Audio Page. I begin with a man who is now starting to see his vision come together with the help of some very experienced people. Glenn Donnelly describes Central NY Motorsports Park and the three different racetracks that will be operating on the premises. He talked about where the project is right now, when they hope to have cars on the track for the first time and what they learned from the synthetic surface experiment they did at the Brewerton Speedway. Lots of great info here! 
 
Lee Gill talked about his championship season up north at Can Am and his hopes for Outlaw Weekend. He told me how his late model handled in the hot laps at Fulton, what he changed on his car to be more competitive and how much difference a tire change made. 
 
Jim LaRock told me about his season at Thunder Mountain and how a championship slipped away. He talked about how close the points were at the end, remembered an anxious moment he had last time he came to the Fulton Speedway and how it could have turned out a lot worse. Whoa! 
 
Rich Keller had a great car in hot laps and remembered the time he almost made the 200 lapper. He talked about how much bite the Fulton Speedway was early on, why this is one of his favorite racetracks and how much he enjoyed racing with the big names with his Sportsman many years ago. 
 
Mikey Nagel ran down how he did in a Sportsman at Penn Can and a Modified at Five Mile Point. He talked about increasing his win total with a late season victory, remembered coming to Fulton Speedway last year and explained why this year was a little different rules wise compared to 2010. 
 
Scott Ford explained how his experience in the Mod Lites helped him make the move up to Sportsman. He talked about the super fast racetrack he saw in hot laps, wonders why he did not make the move sooner and if he might get a second car next season for his young son.
