We’re back at you here on a Wednesday and I have a lot to do today. I have a few new interviews set up and can’t wait to get back at it after a much needed day off. I wrote this up Monday night so I’ll have an update for you on how our bowling went tomorrow as we went for our second championship in four years.

All drivers today on the site as we continue to get closer to the start of racing here in the northeast. Its getting warmer every day this week so hopefully the trend will continue and we’ll be watching and participating in person and not on TV or the internet. I can’t wait for my first whiff of race fuel.

Now let’s chat more about what is on the Audio Page for you today as we teach you something about Sprint Car engines in this first clip. Dave Axton talks about his plans to run more races this year, explains why alcohol hurts engines internally more than gas and describes the work he still has to do in his shop. You guys can learn something here so give it a listen. 
 
Tyler Thompson explained how he picked up a weekly Supermodified ride for this season at Oswego, how excited he is to race at the track he grew up going to and how this effects his schedule. 
 
Dorian Wahdan told me why he changed the look on his Sportsman for this season, described where he feels he can improve as a driver and looks ahead to college this fall. Smart young man here!

The weather is getting a little more spring-like and hopefully Five Mile Point Speedway will be able to get in their practice later today. And they are still a go for their opener on Sunday so we soon have some actual racing from New York State to talk about soon.
 
I have a big day today as we bowl for our league championship tonight against a former team member who came back with his own team after over a decade off. We have been in the title match now for four straight years and have won just one of those so keep your fingers crossed for us tonight.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for the Audio Page today starting with a driver who is ready for a big 2018 season. Luke Horning runs down his Pro Stock plans for the year and talks about the two racecars he has while sharing some advice on rear percentages & cross weight.

I was able to get a few things in the can and will be busy again today with a couple of things already set up. Easter is this weekend and then some tracks to our south have events coming up after that. April is almost here, the snow is melting and race season will be here before you know it.

It was a nice day on Friday and it sounds like next week it should be warming up a little bit around here. They said on the news that we haven’t been above 40 in three weeks. It will seem like summer for some of us when it does. Can’t wait.
 
I got some news yesterday as Five Mile Point Speedway has moved today’s practice to Tuesday, March 27th. I’d go but our league championship is that night so I’ll have to catch them at another time. Who knows, maybe this weekend?
 
Now let’s talk more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as we begin with some from my trip one week ago. Cody Bleau ran down his plans for the coming season while watching a tire change competition at Rotterdam Square and thought back on his Super DIRTcar series race at Eldora.

Again I got a lot done on Thursday before heading to a friend’s house so Allie could try some I-Racing. My friend Jeff has both a three screen set up and virtual reality. She loved it and somewhere down the road when I get going a little better financially I need to do this as it would surely help her racing.
 
We only have a few things to do today after a few very busy weeks and we will be at the Matt Janczuk racing party on Saturday to have some fun and meet up with some racers. It will be a fun weekend for sure filled with racing and basketball on the TV. Go SU!

I had a nice day on Wednesday as I got a lot done in the studio and did a write up for Syracuse.com and the Syracuse Post Standard on the Syracuse Stadium Cross race this weekend at the New York State Fairgrounds.

Had a great day off on Tuesday as we finished off our run as second half champions in bowling and this coming Tuesday we’ll bowl for the league championship for the fourth season in a row. We lost last year, won it two years and lost three years ago so I guess that means this year is ours. Of course there is another team that will have something to say about that.
 
I’ll be back in the studio again today and am always looking for suggestions so please message me on facebook or here at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com.
