Tony Finch II tells me how a fire cost him his racecar and his hauler and how we can help.
Steve Ovens previews Dutch Hoag Memorial Weekend in Dundee that is now moved to Sunday.

The rain has been intense and it sound like today will be colder and wetter than what we went through on Friday. How can that be right? And they even mentioned snow. Oh no! Yes, fall is here alright.

I got some work done in the studio and will be back in there today as well. Not sure if I am going anywhere tomorrow as it is going to be cold so we’ll wait and see and maybe watch the NASCAR race with Allie. Either way it will be a fun day.

Now let’s talk more about what we have on the Audio Page starting with a driver who could use some help from the racing community. Tony Finch II tells me how a fire two weeks cost him his racecar and his hauler, how we can help and how fortunate he is to still be here afterwards. Yeah, this could have been much worse!  

Steve Ovens previews Dutch Hoag Memorial Weekend at Outlaw Speedway that is now moved to Sunday and tells me about the drivers who will be part of this seven division show.

Orange County, Outlaw Speedway and of course The Dirt Track at Charlotte are all in action this weekend so be sure to get out and support these late season races.

We have three Modified drivers on the page today as well as NBC Sports personality Rutledge Wood who is a very interesting guy who really knows his stuff. In our chat we start out talking racing but quickly switch over to classic cars and hot rods as Rutledge has worked with the Mecum Auctions in the past which would be a dream job for many including your truly.

I will be in the studio today so if any of you have any time just send me a message at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com and we will be happy to chat with you today. I don’t think we’ll be doing much else up this way today so let’s have some good conversations after a busy work week.’

Donnie Elliott explained why we haven’t seen much of him this year and why his demeanor changed.
Leon Andrus talked about his new role for 2016 as co-promoter at the new Afton Motorsports Park.

I actually had a day off on Saturday as I stayed up late Saturday morning after Penn Can to get the site done for you today. It had been a couple of weeks since I had a day off and it was much needed. If everything went like I hoped I slept late, played some golf and watched some playoff baseball with friends. I will let you know tomorrow if it worked out as well as I hoped. And it has been a few weeks since I golfed so we were not expecting much except some fun with friends.

On the site today I have two really good driver chats that I really hope you listen to. I hope I don’t sound too preachy in the first one with Mike Colsten but his story is amazing and we are so happy he is with us, doing well and racing after getting as close to, well you know, as you’d like to get. And Donnie Elliott has also had his mind thinking some different things too, although not life and death, and he is having a lot more fun at the track these days. Nice!

Plus we get you the news firsthand on what is happening at I-88 Speedway next year including a new team co-promoting it and a new name. So sit back, take a break from the football and let’s talk some racing. I hope you like it.

I do hope to get in the studio a little today and if you had a great weekend or know of someone I should call on the phone for a chat please send me a message to doug@dougsdirtdiary.com and I’ll give it my best shot.
