Chris Fleming tells mehow he won 30 races this past season and adding a Late Model for 2015.
John Cunningham talked about his 305 Sprint Car championship and his hopes to run Sportsman.
 
As usual it was a busy day for me on Monday as we got some work done writing a new column for the Syracuse Post Standard and some website work done as well. It was a fun day too as I rolled a 602 series on the lanes after a 173 opener. We’re hovering around 198 for an average and that is the highest I have been since the early 90’s so I am smiling all the way around.
 
We have some good stuff for you today from the Winter Bash on Saturday and we’ll be back in the studio today. And we’ll be at Oakdale Mall this Saturday for their annual car show. It runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday so we hope to see you there. Allie will be with me as she will never pass up a chance to see racecars.
 
Now let’s chat more about the new stuff we have for you on the Audio Page starting with a driver who just enjoyed his finest season to date. Chris Fleming tells mehow he won 30 IMCA Modified races this past season, where he will still run the car this year and adding a Late Model to his weekly plans for 2015. 
 
John Cunningham talked about his 305 Sprint Car championship and his hopes to sell that car so he can run Sportsman against his younger brother Chris.

Stephen Denton told me about some recent successes he has enjoyed in some endurance races.
Chris Hulsizer described how his 2015 season went as he finished 6th in Sportsman points at Fulton. 
 
I hope you all enjoyed the race at Daytona on Sunday as much as we did. We went to dad’s house to watch the race and let Allie go wild rooting on her favorite driver. And guess what? That driver won so she is as happy as can be.
 
I know a lot of the teams that raced Florida this past week made their way back on Sunday as well and a messaged Neal Williams as he was on his way back from his surprise win on Saturday night. We’ll be chatting later tonight so if all works out we’ll hear from him tomorrow on the site.
 
Today we have some audio from the Brewerton and Fulton Speedway Winter Bash. What a great time I had seeing everyone and catching up on things. I get in a bubble at this time of the year and forget how much people listen to the website and read what I write. It was nice to get reminded of that so thanks to everyone for their kind words on Saturday. They mean the world to me.
 
Now let’s chat more about that new stuff we have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page starting with a multi-time champion who was the first interview I did on Saturday.  Chuck Powelczyk talked about his pair of championships at Brewerton and Fulton Speedways and thinks back to his early days in the Four Cylinder Super Stock division.

Mike Mahaney talks about the racecars he will be driving this year including a new ride for specials.
Earl Rudy explains what he is working on at his race shop as he gets ready for a busy 2015 season.
 
I got a lot done on Saturday even after we had an issue with a floor drain in our basement. It was clogged but with help from the Town of Clay we were able to get it cleared out. We dodged a bullet on that one for sure.
 
After we got that done I got in the studio and recorded some new chats. And after dinner I am heading out to the Winter Bash in Baldwinsville for the Brewerton and Fulton Speedways. I hope to have audio up for tomorrow and Tuesday from that. My new recorder is on back order so I will have to use the old one so it will not be of great quality but know that soon the new unit will be here and clear audio from road trips will be commonplace again.
 
Now let’s chat more about the new stuff we have for you on the Audio Page from the studio on Saturday. Mike Mahaney talks about the racecars he will be driving this year including a new ride for specials and runs down what he hopes to do in the coming season. 
 
Earl Rudy explains what he is working on at his race shop as he gets ready for a busy 2015 season and looks forward to racing with two of his co-workers.

Mark Weaver talks about hisopen motor Sportsman and his hopes to get a crate car together.
Cory Reed tells me about tonight’s Brewerton & Fulton Speedway Winter Bash and their mall show.
 
Once again we are trudging our way through the winder of 2015 and again the snowblowers were in action with a good five inches of snow on Thursday night. Nice thing is we may get a few days off from it before it hits again. But it is getting tough to find places to put the snow as the height of the snow banks is higher than the snowblower or your back can reach. Wishing you guys the best as you deal with the snow.
 
I got some work done right before dinner time for you to listen to today and I hope to hit the studio this afternoon and the Brewerton & Fulton Speedway Winter Bash after that. It takes place in Baldwinsville at The Ale House at Radission’s Gold Course and it is free to attend. I’ll bring a recorder with me and have audio from that down the road.
 
Now let’s talk more about what we have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page starting with a man who is almost ready for the coming season. Mark Weaver talks about hisopen motor Sportsman, described some of the upgrades he has made as he hopes to win his first race since 1984 and his hopes to get a crate car together. 
 
Cory Reed tells me about tonight’s Brewerton & Fulton Speedway Winter Bash at The Ale House at Radisson, their mall show in March at Great Northern Mall as well as Sportsman & Late Model news.

Rusty Smith runs down his plans to race both dirt Modifieds and asphalt Modifieds in 2015.
Tony Veneziano analyzes the Sprint Car races for both the World of Outlaws and All Stars.
 
The cold continues as we try to stay warm here in the northeast. I was out again with the snow blower on Thursday and hope to keep it in the garage today but as I look out the window here Thursday night I am wondering if that will happen or not.
 
As I type this up, I am less than a half an hour away from watching the Duels from Daytona. Allie is all excited and wondering why they don’t do these qualifying races at more Sprint Cup events. Ah, the things kids say although in this case she is probably right. I’d love to see this at every race. I betcha they’d sell more tickets to that then they sell to qualifying now.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page for today starting with a driver who is going to be very busy this season. Rusty Smith runs down his plans to race both dirt Modifieds and asphalt Modifieds in 2015 while wondering if his starts on dirt are helping him on the asphalt. 
 
Tony Veneziano analyzes the Florida Sprint Car races for both the World of Outlaws & All Stars and talks about the high level of talent in the field as well as the low car counts.

Get ready for some racing today as our Modifieds join the Late Models in Volusia and the twin 125’s get NASCAR going. I know I’ll be in front of the TV tonight with Allie to watch the action from the big track.
 
This is such an exciting time of the year isn’t it? We have the best in racing on all types of surfaces and in all types of cars going on right now. Hopes are high and the anticipation level is high as well. It’s going to be a great weekend to say the least.

I got lucky and was able to speak to some of our Modified drivers as they had a rain out last night at Volusia. No, they were not on the card to race but many were looking forward to hot laps. Racing for them starts tonight as they share the card with some of the best Late Model talent in the business.
 
I will be back in the studio again today as we have lots of things to talk about with the start of the local season getting closer and closer.
 
On a personal note, my wife and I finally went out to eat last night to celebrate Valentine’s Day. With kids and all it can be tough to get that alone time you need and it was nice to have a meal together as a couple. It was almost like the old days. It was fun!
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page from some guys who raced this past weekend in Georgia.
