Back today with our final new interviews of the season as we get ready to remember the year that was starting tomorrow. We’ll go month by month starting with last January and go through the entire year.

It will make for a very busy day today but will give me some time off at the holidays and keep me from trying to get ahold of you at a time when family is so important. So be sure to come back tomorrow and for the next twelve days as we look back at the 2016 season on our website.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as finish out the year with a pair of drivers who run in the most popular division in our area. Dylan Zacharias remembers his 2016 season racing weekly at Brewerton & Fulton Speedways and tells me how close he came to getting his first win in the division and why you can’t move up too early.  

Michelle Courcy talked about her second season in a Sportsman, how she held on with a wounded car to get her first Novice feature win and how much tougher it is when you move up from Novice.

It looks like we’ll have one more day of new stuff up before we head to our top interviews of 2016. I got a lot done yesterday both before and after Allie’s holiday concert at her middle school. Thanks to the people you see up today and tomorrow for making time for me on a day when I only had a small window to get things done.

I have a couple of good ones up today with a pair of drivers that I had not talked with in quite some time. I love catching up and seeing how guys and have been doing since we last spoke. So if it has been a while since I have talked to you then send me a message and we’ll fix that.

Now let’s chat more about what we have up for you today on the Audio Page as we get closer to the big holiday weekend. Matt Spencer talked about notching career win #4 in his patriot Street Stock, how he rebounded from an early season engine issue and what he is working on for 2017.

New on the Audio Page for today:

Alan Rudalavage reviews his championship season and talked about winning his first title.
Pete Pazer talks about his hopes to race Atlantic City and his long background in racing.

It is getting closer and closer every day and I hope you are ready. Christmas is almost here and the stores are getting crazy. Thank goodness for 24 hour Walmarts. I’ll be hitting one later today and hope to have the store to myself.

No bowing on Tuesday but I did get to play some Strat-o-matic baseball and do some online racing with a friend last night so I still had fun. And with the way I’ve been throwing the bowling balls lately I think I even had more fun last night than I had in a while!

Only another day or two of new stuff is up until we do our top five downloads for each month this past year. I have started looking around there and will eventually shut myself in the studio for a long day and get that done.

Now let’s chat more about what I have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who did something in 2017 that he had never done before. Alan Rudalavage reviews his first ever championship season and talked about doing so in front of his family & friends as well as what he is thinking about for next year. As always it’s a lot of fun to talk to Alan even though he is so bashful!
