   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Ryan Watt talked about his six win season that included a Modified title and a big road win.
Tony Farone told me what is new for him in 2014 and recapped his year at two different tracks.
 
It was a sad day in the local racing community on Friday as Modified racer Dave Rauscher lost his son earlier in the morning in a snowmobile crash. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire group of family and friends who were saddened by this terrible tragedy. We are so sorry!
 
Before I found out the news, I was able to get in the studio and put up two new interviews for you to listen to today. I’ll be back in today as well so if any of you are around please message me on facebook or at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have to listen to today on the Audio Page. I begin with a man who had a breakout season in 2013. Ryan Watt talked about his six win season that included a Modified title and a big road win. He told me how it felt to win the championship at Bridgeport against many experienced racers, how a ROC win at Penn Can gave him new found confidence and looks ahead to getting his five year old son started in Quarter Midgets.
 
Tony Farone told me what is new for him in 2014 and recapped his year at two different tracks. He talked about a surgery he will have in a few weeks, explained how he lost a race & a motor while sitting on the scales at Fonda and how a new sponsor should help things along this coming season.
