I had a busy day on Wednesday as we did some writing for the Syracuse Post Standard and Syracuse.com as well as a lot of chats in the studio including someone new who we got to listen to this past weekend in NBC’s coverage at Darlington. Steve Letarte joins us for the first time today and gives us some great thoughts from Darlington while getting us ready for this Saturday’s race at Richmond.
Plus we were able to get a lot of other conversations as well as we get ready for a big weekend all across the board. I can’t wait!
Today the kids here in my neck of the woods go back to do and will do so on a summer like day. It is going to be hot in those classrooms today and I hope all of you young folks are well rested and ready. Well rested might be a stretch but you will be tired at the end of today so I wish you all well as you get used to those early morning hours.
