Allie and I will get there about 1 p.m. or so as I always like being there in the end as usually a few motors will fire up on their way out to the haulers. It will be my first whiff of race fuel and the first time I hear so serious motors in 2016.

I was able to get to the set up for Motorsports Expo 2016 and I must say it is impressive. There is a lot going on right now and I think you’ll be surprised by some of what you’ll see at this annual event. I can’t wait to go today.

I will be there after lunch and will be talking to as many people as I can as we will try to get out as much information as possible. And racers, if I have never interviewed you and you see me there, please stop me and we can either do one right then and there or I can reach you later. Don’t be bashful and please come up and say hi!

After I went to the show I headed off to Allie’s middle school play. It was High School Musical Jr. based on the Disney movie that was out a few years ago. These 7th and 8th graders worked so hard and the play was a smash. It was great to see many of Allie’s early childhood friends and to see how much they have grown up. She has another show today but she’ll be with me on Sunday and no, you won’t believe when you see how much she’s changed. Yes, I am a super proud dad.

It is almost here. The 30th Anniversary edition of Motorsports Expo starts tomorrow and runs through Sunday at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse. It is another big traditional show that brings the racing community together in a unique way. Dirt, asphalt, karts, dragsters and more will be there and I hope to see you there too.

I will be there this afternoon for some of the setup before heading to my daughter’s play later tonight. I will be there from 1-8 on Saturday and noon till 4 on Sunday. The show hours are 10-8 on Saturday and 11-4 on Sunday. For more info go to www.gaternews.com.

One thing you guys need to get while you are there is the latest edition of Smash N Crash. I have watched it several times and it is amazing. And how that stock car driver from Fonda was not arrested and sent to jail after his crash is beyond me. You’ll see it on the dvd and scratch your head for sure.
