Tyler Ward told me about the new car he is finishing up and where he will be racing this season.
Travis Welch talks about his return to Pro Stock racing and remembers last year in a crate Sportsman.

What a week huh? Well you know what they say about March don’t you? In like a lamb, out like a lion. Let’s hope the old phrase is wrong but in my 56 years of being on their earth I’ve found a lot of truth to that statement so don’t put that snowblower in the shed just yet.
 
Back fresh today after a day off on Tuesday and I’ll be back in the studio today with lots to do. Don’t forget there are a pair of car shows this weekend as Southern Tier Speeedworld takes over Oakdale Mall in Johnson City while Fingerlakes Speedworld takes over the Fingerlakes Mall in Auburn. I’ll be at both shows so look for tons of new audio next week.

Now let’s chat more about what is new on the Audio Page for today as once again we’re giving you an extra bonus track. Matt Janczuk goes over the ride along we did together last Thursday, the roll-over we responded to and talks about what it is like being a Sargent with the Hamilton police Department.Good one here guys!

I was finally feeling more like myself on Monday as three days of laying low finally paid off. I guess I got out of this pretty well as I know a lot of you are still hurting and have been sick a lot longer than I have. I hope you all get better and are back to 100% real soon.
 
I got a lot done on Monday and have a nice article in Today’s Post Standard about the two engine options for Sportsman teams looking to go to a small block. If you don’t see it on the newsstand you can read it online at www.syracuse.com/motorsports.
 
And since I did get a lot done I have a bonus clip up for today and also tomorrow. I’ll be off as usual today for bowling and I also have some family business to take care of. It’s all good and I’ll be back at it Wednesday and hopefully feeling even better then.

Well we’re back today although still staying away from public events as I am coughing, blowing my nose and sneezing all over the place. I did fell well enough to do some more interviews in the studio but am staying inside for at least one more day today before venturing out. Got to get better fast right?
 
Along the way on Sunday I did get a lot done and am now off to a great start for the week. Unfortunately Allie is now sick too as whatever this is has worked it’s way through all of us except my youngest. We’ll see if she’s next. Hope not as it is not fun at all.

Sunday, February 25th 2018
   New on the Audio Page for today:
 
Kyle DeMetro talks about his upcoming race benefit on April 7th and his plans to race more in 2018.

It was a sick day for me on Saturday as the cold I’ve been thinking was on it’s way finally hit me on Friday. I know it’s not the flu as that comes on hard and fast but it is still wiping me out and caused me to alter my weekend plans.
 
I know you’re contagious in the first few days so I will stay home today while my family attends a benefit this afternoon. I’ll try to get some things done in the studio and hopefully everything will go as planned. Keep your fingers crossed.
 
And how about Super DIRT Week winner Stewart Friesen picking up a sixth place run at Atlanta with the Camping World Truck Series? I noticed but was wondering if the people from Fox even saw him out there as he is getting almost no press with them. Way to welcome the new guy Fox! Fortunately when he gets a win they won’t be able to ignore him then.

Now let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page as we check in with a racer with big plans for 2018. Kyle DeMetro talks about his upcoming race benefit on April 7th, his plans to race more in 2018 and thinks back on his time in college with his racing roommate.

John Trenca tells me about his new 305 Sprint Car ride and talks about his asphalt & dirt background.

Today is going to be a lot of fun as Allie and I will be heading out to the Guererri Family Racing Party at the Seneca Falls Elk’s Club. We went last year and had a blast and ate some great food as those Guererri’s can make Italian alright. I hope to see you there.
 
Tomorrow we’ll be in the studio as yesterday was almost a day off. You guys know how it goes. I tried but still ended up doing some work. It’s all good though and I look forward to getting out lots of great stories here this weekend.
 
And racers, if you have a benefit coming up that you’d like to tell people about just message me on Facebook or here at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com.

I had a great time on Thursday as I got to do a ride along with racer/Hamilton Police Sergeant Matt Janczuk. I’m not sure if all of you know about Matt as I didn’t for a while either.
 
 It was so much fun as I get the biggest thrill out of riding in a police car with sirens blaring and light’s flashing. It’s right there with the rush you get driving a racecar. Thanks for letting me hang out with you guys Matt. I had a blast and only wish everyone could do one of these at least once. It will give you newfound appreciation for what they men and women in blue do everyday.

I’ll be laying low today as it is my Mother In-Law’s birthday so we’ll be heading up there to celebrate with her and visit a bit too. It will be a fun day. Then tomorrow Allie and I will head to Seneca Falls for the Guererri Family Racing Party to enjoy some homemade Italian food and watch the SU/Duke game. I’ll have audio up from that event on Sunday I hope.

I had a great day on Wednesday as I got some work done early and then headed out to Romulus to talk racing with the Kuleszo family as we get ready for another season with the Syracuse Microd Club. It is always great to see them and their farm and we all can’t wait to get the season started.
 
Today I have something cool as I’ll be doing a ride along with a local police agency. I just love doing these as it will be the third time I’ve done it. I am a huge fan of the work that police do and have several friends in the business. I’ll take a few photos and share them on my Facebook page so look for those later today.
