   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Claude Hutchings Jr. tells me about the work they are doing to get their Sportsman ready.
Dean Reynolds chats about the tentative scheduled just released for the Empire Super Sprints.
 
We’re back on a Monday with news on the upcoming season for many of the area Sprint Car teams as well as news with a well known Sportsman driver who may embrace a new challenge this year.
 
I was busy on Sunday getting two days worth of interviews done so I could take a little easier today. I will of course be writing a new piece for the Syracuse Post Standard and Syracuse.com plus I have bowling tonight and I’ve found I do better when my work is done before I get to the lanes. Heck, I have enough trouble as it is so it is nice to go there knowing I do not have work waiting for me at home.
 
I don’t know about you, but I am ready to nominate the snow blower as one of the greatest inventions ever made. And boy has it gotten a work out these past few weeks. We have so much snow here it is getting tough for the snow blower to get the snow high enough to clear the banks. This is like the winters I remember as a kid in the 70’s. Yes, I do not hate it but I could use a day or two off from snow clearing and I bet you could too!
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we get our work week started. Claude Hutchings Jr. tells me about the work they are doing to get their Sportsman ready, thinks back on 2014 and wonders if they may go Modified racing later this season. 
 
Dean Reynolds chats about the tentative scheduled just released for the Empire Super Sprints as well as the new dates at some new tracks that have been added.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Ryan Susice recaps his off season indoor races and talks about his plans to run big block races.
Mike O’Brien tells me about his race party on March 29th and how tough it is to win at Canandaigua.
 
I hope you all had a nice Valentine’s Day on Saturday. If you are fortunate enough to have a special someone in your life, make sure to celebrate that with them and if not, well there was at least a lot of racing on TV to keep you busy.
 
As I write this up, I’m trying to figure out how I’ll watch the Duke game and the ARCA race at the same time. Fortunately the dvr is getting both so we’ll figure out a way to make that happen.
 
I did get some work done later in the afternoon but need to load up in the studio today so drivers, if you are around and have some things to chat about, please send me a message and we’ll talk today. Thanks.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have to listen to on the Audio Page as we wind down the weekend and hope to avoid another blast of winter. 
 
Ryan Susice recaps his off season indoor races, talks about his plans to run both big block & small block races and explains how helping a racer last season will help him this season. 
 
Mike O’Brien tells me about his race party on March 29th and how tough it is to win at Canandaigua as well as what tends to happen in the closing laps.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Joe Trenca tells me what he is working on at his race shop and his aggressive plans for 2015.
Rocky Warner talks about his new ride for Sundays and how tough it is to move up to a Modified.
 
I got a lot done on Friday as the kids were off from school for the fourth time in the last three weeks. Cold was the reason on Friday although we did get a fair amount of snow as well from a small lake effect band that set up Thursday night. I could have shoveled, but with my back I decided to get the old snowblower out more time.
 
I did five interviews on Friday as I figure today will be a tough day to chat with people with it being Valentine’s Day and all. So all you single racecar drivers, call me today and we’ll get you on the show. For everyone else, make sure to do something special with your loved one today and watch the race from Daytona tonight.
 
I’ll be watching tonight as my oldest daughter Allie is in full race starvation mode. She’s been reading up this off season with her subscription to NASCAR Illustrated and her new edition came on Friday. So she will be ready to go tonight rooting on everybody but Kyle Busch. She thinks he is a cherry picker too.
 
Now let’s talk more about what we have on the Audio Page for you guys to listen to today. Joe Trenca tells me what he is working on at his race shop, his aggressive plans for 2015 and where he would like to be in five years at age 22.
 
Rocky Warner talks about his new ride for Sundays with a veteran car owner, how tough it is to move up to a Modified and remembers his race at Golden Isles many years ago in a stock car.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Jon Rohacevich talks about changes to his Late Model program and his plans for the 2015 season.
Tom Shoemaker III tells me what he is doing to get a Pro Stock ready to race at Canandaigua.
 
It is going to be a cold one today in Central New York. The temperatures will be in the single digits all day long so it sounds like a good day to stay inside and get some work done. If you agree and want to chat, send me a message at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com and we’ll get it done.
 
I got some work done in between chores on Thursday and have two new chats for you today. The response to my last Doug’s Thoughts was very positive so thanks for that. And don’t forget to do your homework assignment.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page starting with a driver I got ahold of thanks to Facebook. Jon Rohacevich talks about changes to his Late Model program, why we didn’t see him at the track much last year and his aggressive plans for the 2015 season. 
 
Tom Shoemaker III tells me what he is doing to get a Pro Stock ready to race at Canandaigua, why he got of racing for so long and why now the time is right to come back.

In the latest Doug’s Thoughts I talk about where we are right now and why I am so optimistic.
 
I got wrapped up in a whole bunch of other things yesterday and although I spoke with a lot of people, Wednesday was more about gathering information and seeing what is going on behind the scenes. Afterwards I started thinking about where we are right now and why I was so optimistic about things so I decided to throw all those things into a new edition of Doug’s Thoughts.
 
I mean really, how fortunate are we here in the northeast? Not only do we have what the rest of the country has with Sprint Cars, Late Models and road racing, but we also have Dirt Modifieds, Supermodifieds and sportsman galore. We really do have it all. Watkins Glen is in out backyard as is the mile at Syracuse which has been hosting racing for over 100 years. We have more racetracks that North Carolina for god’s sake. Not many people know that.
 
So with all that in mind and the start of the 2015 finally upon us, I wanted to let you know how good I feel about things and why. Hopefully we’ll look at this time as the time when we took things to the next level across the board.
 
Now let’s tell you more about the stuff I am talking about in my latest entry on the Audio Page up all by itself for you to listen to today. In the latest Doug’s Thoughts I talk about where we are right now in the racing world, what will happen in the next few weeks and why I am so optimistic about the 2015 racing season. And yes, I have some homework for you guys!

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Dave Rogers talks about his move to Sportsman, how he did last year and what he’ll do this year.
Brett Deyo tells me about his 13 race Super Series and a nice conversation he had with DIRTcar.
 
What do you know? I actually did not have to get the snowblower out on Tuesday. Yay! I probably could have as we did get a little bit of snow but decided to get the shovel out and get some exercise.
 
Before I did that though I did get some work done in the studio and most of what I did is up for today. Of course things are really heating up in Florida as Volusia gets going from now until the night before the Daytona 500 on February 21st.
 
We’re psyched here as we watched the NHRA event from Pomona and will have some people over for the shootout this Saturday. My daughter Allie is super pumped as she got her track guide from NASCAR Illustrated and is reading a book on the history of NASCAR for school. Yes, I may have created a monster here.
 
Now let’s talk about what we have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who made a move up at the end of 2014. Dave Rogers talks about his move to Sportsman, how well he did in the 6 races he ran in the division last year and wonders what he’ll do this year with so many choices. 
 
Brett Deyo tells me about his 13 race Super Series, the rescheduled Gobbler race at Accord on April 14th and the nice conversation he had with Tom Deery from DIRTcar.

   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Tim McCreadie talks about his first 4 races of the season and how solid Modified racing is now.
Brian Malcolm tells me how his two Modifieds look and evaluates each of his weekly homes.
 
We’re back after a snow day on Monday, our third in a row by the way. It was quite a streak of snow as we’ve had the old Airen’s snowblower out for two days in a row and we’re planning on another today. Be careful out there and know that spring will be coming soon so don’t let it get you down too much.
 
We have a pair of nice interviews up for today as we check in with a driver who already have four race nights under his belt and another that is getting ready to return to familiar stomping grounds this coming season.
 
As for me, I’ll be back in the studio today and hoping to get more good stuff for you to listen to. It’s a great time to be a race fan as things really start heating up now and NASCAR fans can see their first race this weekend with the shootout which has been revised to get more drivers in it. Yes, Allie is ready and will be in front of the TV this Saturday.
 
Now let’s chat more about the new stuff we have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page starting out with a man we know well here in the Modified world. Tim McCreadie talks about his first 4 races of the season, what he is trying to learn at these early shows and how solid Modified racing is now here in the northeast. 
 
Brian Malcolm tells me how his two Modifieds look right now, evaluates each of his weekly homes as well as how the Mod world is doing as a whole.
