Paul Szmal talks about racing at Outlaw and Canandaigua as well as some new off season gigs.
Tony Veneziano goes over some driver and crew news as the Silly Season begins for The Outlaws.

I had a really fun day on Saturday as I got to something I had not done in decades. I friend of mine stopped by and we actually recorded some music in the home studio for the video project I have going on. It was so much fun as we worked together trying to come up with music we could use in the background of the project. We got a lot of good tracks down and hope to get more here soon but by the end of the day our creativity level was down to almost zero. But still lots of fun.
 
We have no other distractions today as we’ll be doing interviews all day long. I still have a few in the can but want to pad that today so we’ll be very busy and be sure to have more good stuff for you tomorrow.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as some of us slide our way into the off season. Paul Szmal talks about racing at Outlaw and Canandaigua, how he is doing behind the mic as the morning guy for The Wall in Geneva as well as some new off season gigs. 

Tony Veneziano goes over some driver and crew news that has come out over the last few weeks as the Silly Season begins for The World of Outlaws.

Mark Weaver talks about Weaver’s Custom Coating and describes the work that they do.  
Ernie Saxton and I chat about some stories is racing and look ahead to a big day at Homestead.

I am now winter ready as the little bit of snow we got reminded me to get my snow tires on. I did that in afternoon and did some interviews in the studio both before and after. It was a nice day and now it can snow all it wants and I won’t care…although I would not mind if it held off a little bit longer.
 
I will be back in the studio today and plan on getting a lot done. Most of you racer types are off so it should make for a fun day as we catch up on things and get you informed on what is going on with your favorite driver. And if I have not spoken to them yet let me know with a message and I’ll be sure to get then on for you.

I have a busy day ahead of me as I need to get some things done in the studio and with my car. Thankfully I had an appointment already to get my snow tires on today and I will be doing that this afternoon. Yeah. It’s that time alright and I want to be early and prepared this time.

I got a lot done on a chilly Wednesday as I did some writing and got more work done in the home studio. And for you early risers, like I was on Wednesday, we got to see some frost around as it got down into the 20’s last night. Brr.
 
I have news today on two fronts as we check in with Joey Saldana to hear about his new ride for 2018, how he did in Charlotte and his quest for win number 100 with the World of Outlaws. It sounds like Joey is in good hands for 2018 and we hope that 100th win comes soon.

Pete Stefanski told me about his Pro Stock race at Super DIRT Week and racing at Ransomville.

I enjoyed a semi-day off on Tuesday as once again I got working in the afternoon. I just can’t sit still and never could. I look so forward to time off and then halfway through the day I get bored and need something to do. Thank you ADHD.
 
I’ll have some news up tomorrow for you as I waited to give another media outlet first dibs.

Mat Williamson talked about his Modified win in Charlotte and who helped after he hurt an engine.
Tony Veneziano reports on the final race for the World of Outlaws as they wrapped up their season.

I had another busy day on Monday and got a lot done. Look for my new column in today’s Syracuse Post Standard and online at www.syracuse.com/motorsports.

I did a lot in the studio so I could have a day off for bowling. The kids are off from school today too so it will be a fun day as I’ll make sure we do something fun in the afternoon before I head to the lanes.
 
And you guys know how I am…I’ll probably end up doing some work today anyways as I just hate telling someone to call me back if I pick up the phone. In the can I have driver chats with Billy VanPelt and Pete Stefanski plus some news from Jeremie Corcoran on his next big project.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Danny Varin talks about his 2017 season that included 7 Sprint Car wins and one in a Modified.
Stacy Jackson spoke about his eight win season and the work he did in the race shop on Sunday.

I got a lot done on Sunday as Season in Review interviews were the order of the day. I was able to even put a few in the can and set up some more for today so it should be a good week for me.

Allie’s banquet was Saturday night and I must tell you that the Syracuse MIcrod Club really takes great care of these young racers. The stuff we walked out with was nothing short of impressive with monogramed jackets, throw blankets as well as posters and plaques. Wow. Color me shocked! I’ve seen other banquets that can’t compete with this. Wow!
 
She’ll be wearing that jacket today to school and be proud to do so although not many young people will notice I’m sure as most ninth graders don’t care much about cars. Sad isn’t it? When I was a teen if you didn’t have a car you didn’t date very well as it was an essential. Try making out in the back of an Uber Car. I don’t think that would go over very well.
 
Now let’s chat more about what is on the Audio Page for today as we start out the first full week of the off-season for many dirt drivers. Danny Varin talks about his 2017 season that included 7 Sprint Car wins, one in a Modified while wondering what may happen for him in 2018.  
 
Stacy Jackson spoke about his eight win season in Modified & Sportsman competition, the work he did in the race shop on Sunday and his young crew that help keep him racing.
