It was another real nice day on Wednesday as the sun continued to melt some snow around here although it did have to get through an overnight dusting first. But sure enough, by noon it was gone and there is less snow on the ground than there was the day before and I guess that is all we can hope for.

There is going to be racing this weekend in New Jersey and Delaware. Bridgeport Speedway has a two day show with 358’s headlining on Friday and the 60 Over Special honoring the memory of Doug Hoffman on Saturday. Plus Delaware International Speedway is a go for Sunday so we wish everyone down that way all the best this weekend.

Now let’s talk more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a man who will be racing twice this coming weekend. Jimmy Horton talks about his 3 races so far that include a win at Georgetown, his two races this weekend at Bridgeport and Delaware while running down his plans for the coming season.

I enjoyed a nice day off on Tuesday and will be back at it again today in the home studio. I am also looking for suggestions on who you’d like me to chat with as the start of our season may be pushed back a little.

We still have a lot of interviews in the can and will dig into some of those for you for tomorrow but that does not mean we won’t be busy today. I am so ready for the season to start and am watching as much national racing as I can including NHRA, NASCAR and V8 Supercars from Australia. I have some catching up to do later today but can’t wait to smell the fuel and get dirty in person.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as we listen to some chats from the past two weekends. Jeff Rockefeller explained why he is changing things up for Friday, how much of a challenge it will be to race at Albany Saratoga and the new car he is picking up to return to Fonda on Saturday.  

Jake Spraker tells me what he looks for in a driver for one of his racecars and recapped his early days in the sport as both a driver and a car owner. Really good one here guys!

It was an even more beautiful day on Sunday as we topped out close to fifty degrees. The local car wash was busy as people got all the salt and gunk off their cars and I joined them. It was nice to be outside and not have the wind and snow in your face. Let’s hope we don’t feel that again till many months from now.

I’ve got a nice mix up for you today as we put up a few from the mall show this past weekend, a few from the studio and one from Motorsports Expo. I’ll be back in studio again today and will hope to get a lot done again before taking tomorrow off like usual.

I had a really fun day as Allie and I headed east to Rotterdam Square for the Fonda Speedway car show. There were a lot of cars there both big and small and if you are looking for something to do you really need to get out and see this show. And of course wear your race gear, dress to impress, be on your best behavior and spend some money while you’re there.

Allie and I got there at about 2:30 and stayed for almost five hours. We ate at the food court (really good pizza place there) listened to some singers and talked to a lot of people. When we left we still had people we wanted to talk to so if we missed you please send me a message and we’ll talk this week. I just ran out of time.

We put some of what we did up today and the rest will come out this week as well as some we still have canned from Motorsports Expo. We met a lot of new people, saw the nice changes they made at this mall and as always had a great time hanging out with our second family

Now let’s chat more about what’s on the Audio Page for today as we look back at our busy Saturday in Rotterdam on a beautiful 40 degree day. Mark Mortensen showed off his Sportsman and talked about finding a 3 degree problem late in 2016 as well as what happened after they diagnosed the issue.

New on the Audio Page for today:

David Marcuccilli explained how close his car is to being race ready and his giveaway at Syracuse.
Cody Bleau told me about his late season injury and his plans to follow the King of Dirt Series.
Chris Cunningham talked about a very busy 2016 and described some of the new tracks he visited.
Jason Simmons ran down how his off season has been and the indoor kart racing they’ve done.
Ronnie Welch has a new Four Cylinder ready for 2017 and told me about this season’s race plans.

It was a beautiful day on Friday as we got to see sunshine and that sunshine helped melt some of the snow that we got earlier this week. It was nice to drive on dry roads and nice not to have to get the snowblower and shovels out.

I’ll be on the road today as we’ll be heading to the Fonda Speedway car show at Rotterdam Square. We should get out there by mid afternoon and stay through dinner time as I always like to eat and spend a little money at these mall shows. That is what will keep them going!

So if you’re going to Rotterdam Square or Arnet Mall this weekend be sure to wear your racing gear so they know who we are and tell the merchants why you are there. It makes us look good and gives them the incentive they need to keep these kind of events on the schedule. So look proud, spend some cash and be on your vest behavior.

Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page for this week starting with some Sportsman racers. David Marcuccilli explained how close his car is to being race ready, what he did at the shop this past week and his giveaway at Motorsports Expo 2017.

It was so nice not to have to move snow around on Thursday wasn’t it? I know we got around two feet but I am sure a lot of you got a lot more from what I’m seeing. Now let’s call it a winter, start the warm up and move on. How’s that sound?

I got some work done and watched a lot of basketball like I’m sure a lot of you did as well. It was quite the day and I even got to get out and see my friends at Firehouse Subs for dinner. Remember they are a sponsor of ours and they do have the best subs in the business. Check them out on Genesee Street in Camillus and get a great meal.
