I had a nice day on Sunday as I was able to do some work in the studio and go with Allie over to the fairgrounds to see our friends in the Syracuse Microd Club get in their season opener. It was cold but the sun was out so it wasn’t too bad at all. I’m still trying to fight off a cold or something and will probably head to the doctor today to see if I need so antibiotics like my wife got a few days ago.
 
I got a lot done and that’s why you have three interviews to listen to today. And you’ll have three more tomorrow too. I’ll be working late tonight as Allie has a basketball game at dinner time but I will be sure to have more good stuff to listen to tomorrow.
 
Now let’s chat in more detail about what’s new on the Audio Page starting with a young man who just notched his fourth career Modified feature win. Ryan Krachun talks about his win at New Egypt, how he came from 10th to victory lane and his plans to race a lot in the 2019 season.

Lance Willix tells me how his Saturday was going at Airborne and his hopes for Utica Rome today.
John Waters talks about a big job he was doing on Saturday and the new Late Model for this season.

Well that was quite the day on Saturday. Snow, rain and cold led to multiple cancellations but Fonda, Airborne and Lebanon Valley all did get cars on the track. Kudos to everyone who stood up to the cold on Saturday, you are heartier than me as I was happy to stay home and warm inside.

After watching a little baseball I got to work in the studio after feeling like I was catching a cold on Friday. I’ve been feeling that way for about a week now but feel better today. My wife caught it but she is the only one in the house who is sick right now. Let’s hope it stays that way.
 
Now let’s chat more about today on the Audio Page starting with a chat with a veteran racer after his heat race and before the feature where he would start on the pole.

Butch Getz tells me how nice it was to start his season out with a second place at Five Mile Point.

It is gonna be a cold and windy day and as of the time I typed this up at 8 p.m. both Fonda and Land of Legends are still a go for today although I would be sure to check their websites before you head out the door. I’ll be doing pit reporting at Canandaigua and I have my winter gear ready. Hat, gloves, winter jacket and several packages of hot hands will be needed today and tonight for us hearty race fans. Maybe I’ll try to find one of those face socks before I go.
 
Let’s hope the weather people are off by a few degrees on their predictions and let’s hope for a safe night at the tracks that are holding their season openers tonight. Be safe, have fun and stay warm guys and gals. When July gets here we’ll wish we had a cool breeze like we’ll get today.

Tommy Sears told me how his practice went last Saturday and described a problem with the 358.
Bryan Howland explained why he was at a recent practice and wondered if he’s suit up later that day.
Karl Spoonhower Jr. talked about Wednesday’s practice at Thunder Mountain and Saturday’s opener.

Well that was a nice day wasn’t it? I got a lot of yard work done and I actually finally moved the snowblower out to the shed and started the lawn mower for it’s first run. It amazing how much the grass grew in the back yard and I knew it would be a lot higher with three straight days of rain coming.
 
Now today does not sound good at all but Saturday could be a go. It will depend on how much rain falls today and how wet the track was before the rain started. And most places are pretty wet. We’ll just have to wait and see. Plus it won’t be getting out of the 40’s on Saturday and Sunday so if we do go, it will be darned cold. Keep those winter jackets and ski hats ready guys and gals.
 
Now let’s chat about what we have for today on the Audio Page starting with a driver who had an issue to track down this week. Tommy Sears told me how his practice went last Saturday and described a problem with his small block as well as how much e is looking forward to running the big block in the series race this Saturday. 
 
Bryan Howland explained why he was at a recent practice, wondered if he’s suit up later that day just to help and reminded me why he retired from Sprint Car racing.

We had a nice day on Wednesday as Allie and the Liverpool High School Unified Basketball team had a massive scrimmage at West Genesee High School. It was great and Allie and her whole team played very well. It’s been fun to watch her get better at this just like she did at racing.
 
I’m getting ready for what will hopefully be a busy weekend for all of us as a lot of tracks are doing season openers this weekend. I’ll be at Fulton to report on Friday, I’ll be the pit reporter on Saturday at Canandaigua and we’ll see what Sunday brings. It will be a fun weekend for sure.

It was a nice day on Tuesday but as is usually the case at this time of the year we did get rain which the racetracks in our area do not need any more of. Darn. Well, we’ll keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best this weekend. Again…darn!

This weekend I have plans to be at Fulton Speedway on Friday and then announce at Land of Legends Raceway on Saturday.

I had a tough day on Monday as we got together to remember a good friend who passed away well before his time. We only had an hour at the funeral home but we all got together again afterwards to share stories and shed a few tears. It was rough!
 
But when you’re feeling blue the best thing they say to do is pour yourself into your work and I will be doing that today as I have both racing and non-racing stuff to do. I’ll stay busy and give the people I love an extra hug today too and tell them that I love them. I urge you to do the same! You never know what can happen I today’s crazy world.
