Lenny Sammons previews next weekend’s TQ Midget indoor race in Syracuse on March 8-9th.
Jim Olin looks ahead to Finger Lakes Speed World coming this Saturday & Sunday in Auburn.

It was another snowy day in Syracuse and it sounds like this latest blast of winter could give us another 3-6 inches of snow. Oh goody!
 
We had fun last night as we went to RPM Raceway in Syracuse to listen to racer/investor Brandon Kidd give us some basics on what he does and how to invest and then we had Dinosaur BBQ and did some racing on the indoor road course. Thanks to everyone there as I could go there every day. If you have not yet then check out their locations in Syracuse, Buffalo and Rochester.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page as we look ahead to events taking place on each of the next two weekends. Lenny Sammons previews next weekend’s TQ Midget indoor race inside the new Expo Center at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse on March 8-9th and talks about the Syracuse Motorsports Expo on the 9th and 10th

Frank Twing remembers the worse season of his career so far and thinks back on his early racing days.
Josh Coonradt talks about his eight win season in a Pro Stock and a special award he won on Saturday.
Gregg Turner spoke about his move to a Factory Stock and a four week string of bad luck last season.

It was another late start for us on Tuesday as both my kids and my wife each had a two hour delay. The lake effect band stalled just a few miles to our north so you got anywhere from 2 inches to 12 depending on where you lived. At least they didn’t use up those valuable snow days.
 
I have three good ones for you today as we chat with stock car drivers of various disciplines and backgrounds. They are all really good so I hope you give them a listen. These are all from Monday as I was off yesterday.
 
I missed bowling for the second week in a row even though I was in the championship match of a mini tournament. My shoulder and neck continue to get better at a quick pace but I knew I was not ready and could have taken serious steps backwards if I had bowled. Give me credit…even a few years ago I would not have done that. Thanks for all your advice Phil and we’ll be back at it again next week.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today starting with a veteran racer who gets on this website for the first time! I did not know it had been that long since I had spoken with him. Frank Twing remembers the worse season of his career so far, explains how he hurt himself in a crash at Lebanon Valley and thinks back on his early racing days in a ’74 Malibu. 
 
Josh Coonradt talks about his eight win season in a Pro Stock, what he plans to do this coming season and a special award he won on Saturday at the NYSSCA banquet. 
 
Gregg Turner spoke about his move to a Factory Stock from a Sportsman, described exactly what his racecar is compared to other stock cars and remembers a four week string of bad luck last season.

Casey Pavlick explains why we did not see him much in 2018 and his plans to travel more in 2019.
Chris Stockham looks ahead to racing his wingless 600 Micro Sprint indoors in 2 weeks in Syracuse.
Tony Veneziano gets us up to speed with the World of Outlaws and reports on racing from Florida.

We’ve got an extra track for you today and tomorrow as I was able to get a lot done on Sunday and Monday. I’ll be off today but will still probably get into the studio if I can as I just can’t sit still for very long.

Some of you with warped brains like mine know what that’s like. You work hard while looking forward to a day off and then two hours into that day off I am bored and often end up getting back to work or driving my family crazy because I’m bored. Allie is just like me so at least I know there is one more person out there like that and who knows? maybe you’re just like us too.
 
Come back tomorrow as we will have three stock car drivers up for you and one is someone I have not spoken to since 1999. It’s been a fun couple of days and I hope to be able to keep the good stuff coming to you guys. And as always, send any suggestions you have to doug@dougsdirtdiary.com.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who has been very busy away from the driver’s seat. Casey Pavlick explains why we did not see him much in 2018 and tells me about his plans to travel more in 2019 as well as the new chassis he will be picking up soon. 
 
Chris Stockham looks ahead to racing his wingless 600 Micro Sprint indoors in 2 weeks in Syracuse, tells me how he traded a Sportsman for it and why he is hopeful to race more local tracks this season.

Mike Maresca remembers his recent trip to Arizona and runs down where he will be racing in 2019.
Dave Brown talks about changes for 2019 and remembers his time in the military and law enforcement.

I got a lot done and got a lot done early as they predicted big wind in our area during the day. As of 4:30, when I wrote this up, it was relatively calm and hopefully it will stay that way. Hoping all of you are alright with potentially damaging winds hitting our area this morning.

I have a bunch of things set up for today as was able to get a few extra ones yesterday so look for a possible bonus track or two in the next few days. And of course if I have not talked to your favorite driver yet shoot me a message and I’ll do my best.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a man who was busy in the shop on Sunday. Mike Maresca remembers his recent trip to Arizona for a Late Model race, explains the work he is doing in his shop right now as he waits for his engines and runs down where he will be racing in 2019.   
 
Dave Brown talks about changes to his Mod Lite for 2019, how happy he is to hear about the new sponsor for the division at Brewerton and remembers his time in the military and in law enforcement. Thank you for your service Dave!

Scott Kreutter explains why he missed the last indoor race and looks forward to racing Syracuse.
Michele Payne Kuleszo talks about the Southern Tier Microd Club and her 4 races this past season.

It was a real nice day on Saturday and I was finally feeling well enough to get out and enjoy it a little. I was careful not to do too much and I am almost through this, I can tell. I’ll probably have to miss another week of bowling as I do not want to get back to where I was earlier this week. It was brutal.
 
I’ll be back in the studio today and looking to get a lot done as we get ready to say goodbye to the winter break and get back to life as we know it. Allie has been driving with her learner’s permit and that has been fun and surprisingly not stressful at all. Cool!
 
Now I’ll tell you a little more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today starting with a man who has a new addition back home. Scott Kreutter explains why he missed the last indoor race in Atlantic City, tells me how his young son is doing and looks forward to racing at the new venue in Syracuse.

Michele Payne Kuleszo talks about her new job with the Southern Tier Microd Club, explains how it has helped her young daughter in other areas and recaps her 4 races this past season.

Billy Pauch Sr. recaps his four races in Florida and tells me about some changes he would like to see.
Brandon Kidd invites us to RPM Raceway this Wednesday to learn investing and get a free kart race.

I had a nice day on Friday as I dug out my old VCR as well as some of my old tapes. We watched some old races including some of the old This Week on DIRT shows from the 1990’s. And how many of you remember the Empire DIRT Series? Yep, saw that too. It was a blast.
 
I got some work done in the studio as well and we’re trying to track down why some of the recent interviews have had a hum in them at times. I tried something on Friday so we’ll keep our eyes on things and see if we have it fixed. Sorry about that.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today starting with a veteran driver who just got back from his first races of the year.

Peter Britten recapped his four races at Volusia and told me about racing smart with your own team.
Tanner Harpell highlights 2 big Modified races at 5 Mile Point as well as their other 8 shows in 2019.
 
We had a nice day on Thursday as I continued to get better physically and my oldest daughter Allie got her permit and got behind the wheel of my Mercury later in the day. Of course we started in a parking lot as the Microd she drove could not be more different than a street car. She stomped on the brakes a few times and got on the gas a little quickly too but that will come in time.
 
We were able to get some work done in the studio and we’ll be back at it again today. I’ll be in there all weekend too with a big Saturday afternoon session planned before we hit our first pre-season car shows next weekend as Southern Tier Speedworld and Fingerlakes Speedworld are both next weekend and we will be at both shows.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who just got back from Florida. Peter Britten recapped his four races at Volusia this past week, told me about some of the economic realities of running your own team and why a certain Australian beer we all know is not as popular there as it is here. 
 
Tanner Harpell highlights two big Modified races at 5 Mile Point beginning with one honoring racer Doug Worthing, confirms that that have ten total Mod races on the schedule and talks about the new challenge for he and his two brothers.
