Eric Boozel talks about his win last weekend in Charlotte and how he got around the big track.
Leon Andrus told me about his season at Afton and why he decided to step down from his role.

I hope you all had a great Saturday. I was off on purpose so I could attend my daughter’s racing banquet and we had a great time. I’ll be in the studio for a good part of the day today and hope to get back to Season in Reviews so if you’re free and want to chat about the year that was message me and we’ll get it done.
 
I have an easy week this time around as I won’t be on the road as much so I hope to get caught up on some things that I’ve let slide as I work on Master Plan 3. You guys know how it gets. Prioritize, prioritize, prioritize. But so far so good and I continue to be optimistic.
 
Now let’s chat more about the new interviews on the Audio Page starting with someone new to the website. Eric Boozel talks about his win last weekend in Charlotte, how he got around the big track in his Acura NSX as well as what the rules are for this show as well as many others to our south. Good stuff! 

Leon Andrus told me about his season at Afton Motorsports Park, what he learned as co-promoter and why he decided to step down from his role.

Pat LaPage talks about the storm damage he saw down south and home insurance policies.
Tom Tophoven tells me why he did not race last year and may not for a few years still to come.

The weekend is upon us and for most of us racing is now in the rear view mirror for a while. Others still have some races to go and we wish everyone the best as they wrap up action tonight at The Dirt Track at Charlotte. Wish we were there with ya!
 
We have more good stuff for you today and we’ll be back tomorrow with the other chats I did yesterday. I have a banquet for Allie tonight as the Syracuse Microd Club looks back at their season. It will be to see everyone again, especially our new friends The Kuleszo’s, and talk about our kids all night. See you guys there I hope.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page for you today starting with some first hand accounts of what hurricanes can do and how you can make sure you’re prepared financially. Pat LaPage talks about the storm damage he saw down south in Texas & Florida and how some home insurance policies cover these types of things while other don’t. 

Tom Tophoven tells me why he did not race last year, why may not for a few years still to come and how close he came to getting his Sportsman out during the summer.

Joe Marotta and I share some memories of days gone by and think of our friend Gary Montgomery.
Steve Ovens tells me how he first met Gary Montgomery and how they helped each other learn.
 
I had a nice day and we wish all of you who are down in Charlotte all the best as The World Finals kicks into high gear today…literally! One of these years I am going to have to make arrangements and make it down there as I have never been to the area.
 
We have some new business ventures coming in 2018 so maybe I can make a road trip and get to see it myself and do some with some great video to show as well. If things keep going as they are now my latest plan should work out very well.

Don’t worry though, this website is not going anywhere and what we do with these new projects should help this out as well as the bottom line. And I’ll be too busy to get depressed as idle time for me, like a lot of people, is not good. Too much time alone with a flawed ADHD brain is not a good thing.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as we think back to the past and remember a good friend through someone who knew him for decades and another who was very close to him in his final years. Joe Marotta and I talk about what he is doing today, share some memories of days gone by and think of our friend Gary Montgomery who we lost last year. Rest in Peace Gary! 

Steve Ovens tells me how he first met Gary Montgomery, how they helped each other learn and gives us some news on Woodhull Raceway.

Bill Shea talks about Utica Rome Speedway, small blocks in 2018 and the NE Racing Products show.
Phil Vigneri III tells me about racing small blocks at Freedom Raceway and Wraptile Graphics.

Yeah fall is finally here alright. It did not get out of the 40’s here in Central New York and I’m starting to realize that outdoor activities in nice weather may be a thing of the past in 2017. Glad I got out to golf last week that’s for sure.
 
I did some writing in the afternoon and then got to work in the studio. I have more to do today so be sure to come back and see who we get to talk to. I have calls out to several and I’ll be amping up the Season in Review interviews too.

And don’t forget to set your clocks back this weekend. Boy that’s one thing I really wish would go away. The winter time is depressing enough without having it get dark before 5 o’clock. Man!
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we get closer to The World Finals beginning later tonight. Bill Shea talks about what’s going on in the off season at Utica Rome Speedway, small blocks in 2018 and their presence at the NE Racing Products show.  
 
Phil Vigneri III tells me about racing small blocks at Freedom Raceway weekly, how he did in his last races at Mercer and showing off Wraptile Graphics at the NE Racing Products show in two weeks.

Dave Marcuccilli talked about his Sportsman win in Charlotte and how important tire choice was.
Dylan Cecce told me how he went from third to first in one lap to win Saturday at Five Mile Point.
 
I hope you all had a nice Halloween night and that the only ghosts and goblins you saw were of the paper variety hanging from the walls. If you saw some others then that’s another story for another day.

I had fun with my youngest daughter as we hit a lot of houses in my busy neighborhood. We often get people coming to our neighborhood from other places where trick or treating is not as safe as it is here and it’s great to see. Come on out, enjoy and hopefully move here down the road.
 
I’ll be back at work today doing some writing and getting more interviews as the can is empty right now. But don’t worry, there is lots to talk about so be sure to come back and see who will be up tomorrow.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as we get ready for one more big event this weekend. Dave Marcuccilli talked about his Sportsman win in Charlotte, how important the proper tire choice was and how the choice helped him run down the leader. 

Dylan Cecce told me how he went from third to first in one lap to win Saturday at Five Mile Point, how nice it was to finish off his season with some big wins and what they are doing now in the shop.

Lance Dewease talks about finishing his 2017 season with a win last Saturday at Susquehanna.
Tony Veneziano previews the World Finals taking place this weekend at The Dirt Track at Charlotte.

I hope you survived the storm alright. I saw some photos on Facebook and know that some of you did not so we’re thinking about you today and praying that everything will be fine.

We were fine here and although some surrounding areas lost power we never even had a glitch of any kind so we were fortunate. I got my work done in the afternoon and early evening and doubled up as I don’t want to have to bug people today on Halloween.
 
After some TV in the afternoon I’ll be heading out to trick or treat with my youngest daughter. Of course Allie is too old for that now so she is going to a friend’s house to hand out candy. I’ll see her later.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we get ready to dress up and eat lots of candy today. Lance Dewease talks about finishing his 2017 season with a win last Saturday at Susquehanna and explained how he won with a damaged front wing on his 410 Sprint Car.

Tony Veneziano previews the World Finals taking place this weekend at The Dirt Track at Charlotte and tells me some of what to expect in this season ender for many teams.

Kyle Rohner talked about picking up his thirteenth Sportsman win on Saturday at Five Mile Point.
Tyler Thompson tells me about his win in the Dirt Sportsman Invitational down in Charlotte.
 
We hope all of you are doing alright today as some big wind is moving through our area this morning and afternoon. High Wind Warnings are out all across our area and we hope you did not lose power and are warm and dry today.
 
I took advantage of the rainy day and stayed inside doing work and chatting with winning racecar drivers. I have two of those chats up today and will be back in the studio today, weather permitting of course, and hope to have more good stuff up for you on Tuesday.
 
We’ll have some announcements coming up this week on an event at the NYS Fairgrounds and another one that my daughter Allie will be at. I’ll get to those later in the week so stayed right here every day to be informed.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we visit with a pair of winners from the weekend.  Kyle Rohner talked about picking up his thirteenth Sportsman win of the season on Saturday at Five Mile Point, how great it was to win three championships and looks ahead to The Gobbler at Accord.
