Peter Britten talks about big changes for the 2016 season in his race career and in his home life.
Tony Veneziano reports on the WoO Sprint Car races from Ocean Speedway and Silver Dollar.

It snowed again Sunday night but I am refusing to get out the snow blower to deal with it. I am hopeful that Mother Nature will take care of that herself and still hopeful that we could see some cars back on the track this weekend. Keep your fingers crossed.

Tonight we get to celebrate our bowling league championship at the annual banquet and later we’ll see if the Syracuse Orange women can do what no team has done of late and beat U-Conn for the women’s NCAA basketball championship. So you know where we’ll be tonight!

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a man who is really happy right now with the way his life is going as he gets ready to embark on a new challenge. Peter Britten talks about big changes for the 2016 season in his race career and in his home life while reflecting back on when he first came to America in 2010.  

Tony Veneziano reports on the WoO Sprint Car races from Ocean Speedway & Silver Dollar Speedway as the series continues their month long swing through California.

Chris Thurston tells me why he picked up a frame this past weekend and where he’ll race.
Joe Marotta talks about moving his radio show to Fox Sports 1490 AM starting this Saturday.

Well it happened much like they predicted here in Central New York. The snow did come and was going pretty well there in the morning but fortunately the sun came out and melted a lot of it so now snow blowing was needed.

But that may play a part in what may or may not happen this weekend. It should be cold enough where all the snow may not melt till midweek so we’ll wait and see if we’ll be getting in a lot this weekend or not so much.

I stayed warm inside and did work in the studio getting three new chats recorded. I hope to do three more today and take my usual day off on Tuesday. We’ll be celebrating our championship at the bowling banquet tomorrow and it will be great to be sitting at the head table after losing in the championship last year. Go Pingers!

You might think that some of us in the Syracuse area are upset after watching the men lose Sunday night but we’re not at all. They did a great job and became the first 10 seed to make the Final Four. Nobody predicted the run this team would have and they made the city and all of us very proud. We only lose two players and have some great young talent so we plan on making it back again in 2017. There ya go!

Now let’s chat more about what we have on the Audio Page starting with a man who is going to be very busy here in the next month. Chris Thurston tells me why he picked up a frame this past weekend, why he is changing things up a bit this year and the need to keep his car straight.  

Joe Marotta talks about moving his radio show to Fox Sports 1490 AM starting this Saturday, the new independent front suspension at Oswego and where he will be this season.

Tommy Sears talks about how close he is to being race ready and where he will race this season.
Lance Willix tells me how a lack of snow fall affects his racing and his plans for the 2016 season.

We are showing some love to the Modifieds today as we get ready for another work week to begin. I did not get as much done yesterday as I had hoped so I really need to get going today. Guys, I need to get a lot done so if you are available please message me and let’s chat today or tomorrow. I need to get six new chats recorded by the time I crash on Monday so your help is truly needed.

Still not shocked by the weather change we had as April is rarely snow free. My birthday is in early May and I remember clearly as a kid having to shovel the driveway to use my new basketball. Hopefully we won’t be doing that again this year.

Now let’s chat about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting out with a pair of racers who are working to get ready. Tommy Sears talks about how close he is to being race ready, where he will race this season and thinks back to when he and his brother raced as teenagers. That is where the 83 came from!  

Lance Willix tells me how a lack of snow fall affects his racing, remembers some valve train issues he had last year and his plans for the 2016 season.

Joe Trenca gets ready for some 410 Sprint Car racing today and talks about his 2016 race plans.
In the latest Doug’s Thoughts I reflect back on the IROC Series and offer an idea for today.

I hope you enjoyed the nice weather on Friday because it is going to turn sometime today and it won’t be for the better. I was able to get out and have a little fun on Friday and get a little work done as well.

On the page I have a chat from Thursday night at the race shop of Joe Trenca and an interesting idea for a racing series that a friend and I have been tossing around. Give it a listen and let me know what you think. Of course the logistics of something like this in today’s racing world might be impossible but I think it’s a heck of an idea.

Today I will be back in the studio and recording as much as I can before the Final Four begins tonight. Still shocked that the boys and girls from SU have done as well as they have and who knows? Maybe we can have a pair of champions here in soon to be snowy again Syracuse. Go Orange!

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a man who is going to very busy this season. Joe Trenca gets ready for some 410 Sprint Car racing today and talks about his 2016 race plans while explaining why he will hit the road more to race in Sprint Car Country.

In the latest Doug’s Thoughts I reflect back on the IROC Series and offer an idea for today that I think could be a true test of a driver’s ability.

Ryan Susice tells me about his racing party Saturday at the Ransomville Fire House at 4 p.m.
Barry Angstadt previews Saturday’s No Wing Spring Fling at Lanco and looks ahead to Kutztown.   

It was another warm day on Thursday and thunderstorms woke us up in the morning. I just love spring time thunderstorms as it reminds us of the warm weather to come. But before we get there we may have one more bout of snow as they are predicting 3-5 inches in some parts of Central New York either Sunday or Monday. Darn.

As we’ve always said, you put races on the schedule in April around here in hopes that you can race and if you don’t you’re not out anything for trying. Hopefully the snow won’t be that bad, will melt fast and we’ll be at our favorite racetracks again soon.

Today I had hoped to get out and maybe hit a few golf balls but it does not look good there although we will hold out hope that we can still swing the clubs for the first time in 2016.

Now let’s talk some more about the good stuff we have for you today on the Audio Page as we get ready for the weekend. Ryan Susice tells me about his racing party Saturday at the Ransomville Fire House at 4 p.m., reflects on the success Ramsonville’s young racers have had indoors and runs down his plans for 2016.  

Barry Angstadt previews Saturday’s No Wing Spring Fling at Lanco, reminds teams of practice session earlier the same day and looks ahead to Kutztown’s opener on May 11th.

Dan Creeden gets ready for the Hard Clay Open at OCFS on Saturday and talks about his hopes.
Jim Bogett talks about his 1st Mod Lite race at Merrittville and his Firehouse Sub Store in Camillus.

  We had a fun day on Wednesday as we were able to get out and enjoy the great weather we had before things change over the weekend. We are still hopeful to get in some racing to our south and we’ll keep you posted on how things are going.

Today we have a man who has already been out and will be racing at the Orange County Fair Speedway opener this Saturday. Plus we look at the world of Mod Lites and tell you here in the Syracuse area how you can get a special deal at Firehouse Subs in Camillus right across from the old Camillus Mall. Tell them Doug’s Dirt Diary sent you and get a special deal!

Also we won our bowling league on Tuesday night beating out the same team that beat us in the championship last year. It felt great and we are so happy that we did as well as we did. Now we are switching to golf mode and just need some help from Mother Nature before we can get started there.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a nine time winner from 2015.   Dan Creeden gets ready for the Hard Clay Open at OCFS on Saturday and talks about his hopes for the race as well as his plans for the 2016 season.  

Jim Bogett talks about his 1st Mod Lite race at Merrittville on April 23rd, how big the class is worldwide and his new Firehouse Sub Store in Camillus. Mention Doug’s Dirt Diary for a special deal!

Alan Barker is moving back up to Modified this year and told me how his racecars look right now.
Nick Kennedy talks about his Four Cylinder win at Penn Can and how he beat out his brother.

I am back and ready to go after my typical day off on Tuesday. The bowling season is now over and soon we will switch to golf mode and hope to get out and hit some balls any day now. It is still to messy to try to get on a course and I like to wait till the first mowing of the year before heading out. Hopefully I will get to do that soon.

And remember I am in the jury pool this week so at any time I may be short on time. I hope it does not affect what I do here but it could so I will do the best I can and try like heck to get you new stuff.

In case you missed it, Canandaigua has already cancelled for this weekend and as of now Five Mile Point is still on for Saturday. I hope to have more on that later this week.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page starting with a man who is really loaded for bear this season. Alan Barker is moving back up to Modified this year and told me how his pair of racecars look right now as well as his plans for the coming season.  

Nick Kennedy talks about his Four Cylinder win at the Penn Can opener, how he beat out his older brother in the closing laps and where he will race this season.
