New on the Audio Page from Fulton Speedway:

Tyler Thompson won his third Novice Sportsman race of the season and spoke about the victory.
Dakota Belcher described the race he had up front with a veteran in his Four Cylinder feature win.
Mike Stanton got the win in the caution free Sportsman race and talked about racing in traffic.
A.J. Kingsley led all but 2 laps in his Late Model win and spoke about winning on Dad’s birthday.
Larry Wight benefitted from a late race yellow and talked about winning the Modified feature.
Chad Phelps picked up some spots late to finish second and told me how he was in the late laps.
Mike Bowman lost the lead after a late race yellow and talked about turning things around.
I had a busy, busy day but a real fun one too as I beat the weather twice. I beat in on the golf course although it did make me late to the racetrack and we all beat it at Fulton getting everything in despite two rain delays.
The first rain delay came right before the show started and after hot laps so they did not start the heat races until after 7:30. (The track was beautiful by the way!) I got there as the autograph session was wrapping up so I was able to shoot to the pits quickly to chat with the two drivers who went to the hospital last week. I will have my chats up with Torrey Stoughtenger and Taylor Jackson on Tuesday so look for those. Great to see you both at the track!
Then the rains came again during the Late Model feature and they were doing very well staying ahead of it until a caution flew eight laps into it. It was barely raining but when the cars run around slowly that’s all it takes. The cars stayed on the track joined by the packer trucks and less than ten minutes later they went green.
There were three teenage winners, a first timer for her career, a man who won on his dad’s birthday and another who had a late race yellow help him get the lead and the win. Plus I was able to get to the second and third place finishers in the Modified feature before they shut the lights off.
Today Allie and I will be off to Utica Rome and it will be Allie’s first race of the season. She is pumped up and ready to get back behind the mic to do some interviews. It will be a fun day to say the least and I can’t wait to see all of you as it seems like forever since I have been there.
See you all today in Vernon and have a great Sunday!
