   New on the Audio Page for today:

Chris Mackey talks about his rookie season in a Modified and how he’ll learn more in two weeks.
Corky Stockham reminded racers about what is happening at this year’s Parts Peddler Trade Show.
 
I am back with more good stuff for you today to listen to as the off season officially gets closer. After this weekend things will get scarce but there are still some great events coming up and we’ll be chatting about them in the coming weeks.
 
I’ll be in the studio today and will be in there for several hours. I am looking for people to chat with as I am trying to get a little ahead as I have a busy week ahead of me. If you’d like to chat send me a message at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com or message me on facebook.
 
Now let’s chat about what we have on the Audio Page for today. I start with a young man who made a big move up in 2014. Chris Mackey talks about his rookie season in a Modified, how he’ll learn more in two weeks at Parts Peddler and why you have to know when to race as well as when to let a faster car go. 
 
Corky Stockham reminded racers about what is happening at this year’s Parts Peddler Trade Show ran down some of the manufacturers that will be on hand why a handshake is better than an email reply.

Rocky Warner talks about his busy day that includes racing at Five Mile Point and a banquet.
Andrew Harpell tells me about Friday’s show being moved to Sunday at Five Mile Point.
 
Cold and snow dominated the day on Friday for a lot of us and that led to a change for the schedule at Five Mile Point Speedway in Kirkwood. The Friday portion has now been moved to Sunday and the rest of the weekend looks fine.
 
I have some news on the changes from Five Mile’s Andrew Harpell as well as a nice chat with your GRIT Series champion Rocky Warner. Both will be at Five Mile Point today as will a few surprises. Listen to Andrew’s chat to see who will be there later today.
 
I’ll be home as the kids have many things going on today. In between shuttling them around, I’ll be in the studio getting some new interviews done. If you’re around and want to join me, send me a message at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com or message me on facebook.
 
Now let’s find out more about what we have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page. I start with a four time champion. Rocky Warner talks about his busy day that includes racing at Five Mile Point, celebrating his GRIT Series championship and a banquet for Glen Ridge. 
 
Andrew Harpell tells me about Friday’s show being moved to Sunday at Five Mile Point as well as a change for the GRIT Series race for Saturday which is now moved up on the schedule.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Stephane LaFrance talked about his season, the new car he’ll build and the Parts Peddler show.
James Morris tells me about his win last weekend at Grandview and the upcoming Tulsa Shootout.
 
What a rainy day it was on Thursday. Here’s to hoping all that rain does not affect what we have going on tonight at Five Mile Point and Charlotte. One way or another it will be a cold finish to the season for most and let’s hope people aren’t sitting in their haulers waiting it out.
 
I’ve got a pair of nice interviews for you today as we get ready to head into a busy weekend. I’ll be back in the studio today so be sure to come back tomorrow to see who I can get ahold of.
 
And on a personal note, I took a friend to get his colonoscopy done yesterday and he said exactly what I said afterwards. “I was dreading this thing for years and it was not bad at all.” So I urge any of you who are over 50 and have not had this done to make an appointment to get checked. The worse part is the night before and event that is not that bad. Go guys and get this done…
 
Now let’s chat more about who we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page. I start with a pretty smart guy who always does his own deal. Stephane LaFrance talked about his consistent season, the new totally car he’ll build and the great deals he’ll have at the Parts Peddler show coming up in two weeks. Nice one here to teach you guys about how air affects handling.  
 
James Morris tells me about his win last weekend at Grandview, looks ahead to his first ever attempt to qualify for the Tulsa Shootout and the big team will be a part of for the event in December.

Claude Hutchings Jr. talked about last weekend’s race at Watkins Glen and his hopes for Friday.
Eddie White previews Friday at Five Mile Point and wonders about a possible move up for 2015.
 
We have more good stuff for you today as we show some love to the Sportsman teams that will run in the Race of Champions finale this weekend at Five Mile Point Speedway. Let’s hope Mother Nature is a race fan this weekend and that the forecasts we are seeing now are not accurate.
 
If you’re heading to Charlotte I’ve been told to pack like you are going to a race in the northeast. It is going to be cold down there so bring your jackets and winter hats. You’ll need them.
 
I have a new article online today and you can see it at www.syracuse.com/motorsports or read it in the Syracuse Post Standard. It is available at newsstands today.
 
Now let’s find out more about the two chats I have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page. I start with a young man who is maybe better on the road courses than he is on dirt. Or is he? Claude Hutchings Jr. talked about last weekend’s race at Watkins Glen, how he hurt his chances with a mistake pulling onto the racetrack and his hopes for Friday’s RoC finale at Five Mile Point. 
 
Eddie White previews Friday at Five Mile Point, talks about a change with his race team and wonders about a possible move up to Modified for 2015.

Billy Van Pelt chats about his multi-win season and how fortunate he was to have quality rides.
Bob Henry Jr. talks about his exhaust systems and encourages teams to see him at Parts Peddler.
Joe Skotnicki previews the World Finals at Charlotte and talks about the tight point battle.
 
We are at the halfway point of the week and as you read this many of dirt track racing’s top teams are either on their way to Charlotte or already there. The World Finals begins tomorrow and runs through Friday and Saturday.
 
Of course our DIRTcar Modifieds are as tight as can be at the top with Billy Decker and Matt Sheppard separated by just one point while Brett Hearn sits 52 markers back. It will be quite a finale.
 
The sad part is that the racing world will say goodbye to Steve Kinser as he is retiring from the World of Outlaws. Kinser has been the man in Sprint Car racing since the World of Outlaws was formed and he is the most recognizable name in the dirt world. We wish you well sir and thanks for all you have done to entertain fans throughout the years.
 
Now let’s find out more about the new stuff we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page for today. I start with a veteran driver who at this time last year was not sure how 2014 was going to work out. Billy Van Pelt chats about his multi-win season at Woodhull and how fortunate he was to have quality rides with two different race teams for the season.

We’re back with lots of good stuff today fro my busy Sunday in the studio. I got a lot work done and did even more yesterday so be sure not to miss a day as we have a lot going on this week with longer interviews.
 
It is going to be a great weekend and I am so jealous of all of you who get to go down to Charlotte. One of these years I am going to make it down there to see the track and tour the area. Plus Donnie Wetmore is still down at the Richard Petty Driving Experience and I would kill to be able to do that. Yeah, I need to set that trip up.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page. I start with a driver who will race down south this weekend. Adam Roberts talks about getting faster as the season went on and highlighted a few nice runs the past few weeks as he gets ready to race later this week in Charlotte.
