Jamie Mills tells me about his two race win streak and his latest win on Saturday in Delaware.
Chris Fleming talked about his IMCA wins at Brewerton and Skyline that make him 8 for 11 so far.
 
Busy day for me on Wednesday as I had work to do for the Syracuse Post Standard and for the Atomic Power Racing Hour. Rich Vleck came over and we put the final touches on the show that will air from Utica Rome. I’ll have some times up for you soon so look for that on Time Warner Cable Sports in New York.
 
I have some new clips up for you as well as we got busy in the studio on Tuesday. Both of these drivers are off to great starts so I hope you enjoy listening to them as they talk about their wonderful seasons so far.
 
I’ll be back in the studio today and will be at races tomorrow. I know…things have been crazy for us here but I believe we have turned the corner and will be able to put more focus on working instead of putting out fires as we have been for several days now.
 
Now let’s chat about what we do have for you today on the Audio Page. I start with a driver who has been doing well to our south. Jamie Mills tells me about his two race win streak and his latest win on Saturday in Delaware. He talked about why he didn’t have to touch his Modified all night, how he was making his passes and why teams should take a look at upgrading their shock program. 
 
Chris Fleming talked about his IMCA wins at Brewerton and Skyline that make him 8 for 11 so far. He told me how he passed a rival on Friday, why he had to start at the rear on Saturday and where his new chassis is better than what he had before.

Danny O’Brien recaps his weekend that saw him win at Mohawk International and Brockville.
Ryan Phelps talked about his Modified feature win at Fulton and his pair of 4th place finishes.
 
Well Mother Nature stepped in and put a stop to the action we were hoping to see last night at Yates County Speedway. Big storms in the morning and then pop up storms after that led to the cancellation of that RoC show. No word yet on whether they make take another shot at this or not. Check the speedway website.
 
So I got to work in the studio on a hot day and I finally think we have all our issues handled. The Danny O’Brien chat was the last one I did with a few glitches but Dan was nice enough to stay on the line with me to help me sort them out. The final glitches were handled with my Ryan Phelps chat. Thanks for helping guys.
 
We’ll be back tomorrow with a driver who has won 8 of his 11 starts so far. Plus we’ll have more for you as well.
 
Now let’s chat about what we have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page. I start with a driver who went undefeated on the weekend. Danny O’Brien recaps his weekend that saw him win at Mohawk International and Brockville. He told me how nice it was to finally be back to racing on Friday in an extra distance race, how he got the lead on a black track in Canada and the work he was doing in the shop on Monday. 
 
Ryan Phelps talked about his Modified feature win at Fulton and his pair of 4th place finishes. He told me about his side by side battle up front, how much better his new car is feeling to him and some gains they made with some big changes to his Sunday car.

Donnie Lawson told me about his tough season so far as he gets ready for tonight at Yates County.
Dan Harpell previews tonight’s RoC Modified and Sportsman show at Yates County Speedway.
 
Boy did I have a busy day? Yes I did. I did write ups and stats for the Syracuse Post Standard and Syracuse.com as well as got some work done in the studio. And the way things have been going continued as I had a phone box issue.
 
I got it squared away by the fourth interview I did as Danny O’Brien was nice enough to stay on the line to help me sort it out. So that interview as well as the Donnie Lawson and Dan Harpell interviews don’t sound that great but if you listen to Billy Pauch’s you’ll see that we got it fixed. Thanks Danny!
 
I have plans to go to Yates County tonight and let’s hope Mother Nature is a fan today as we could use a break. This is a rescheduled race too so let’s hope the second time is the charm. 
 
Now let’s chat about what we have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page. I start with a man who is driving a lot of different cars these days and winning in his own. Billy Pauch Jr. talks about his win at Big Diamond and his multiple races tonight at Grandview. He also told me how he came from the back to get a fourth at New Egypt, remembers breaking while leading last week at Kutztown and tells me how cool it will be to race 5 different cars in 5 days of racing. 
 
Donnie Lawson told me about his tough season so far as he gets ready for tonight at Yates County. He talked about another tough night Saturday at Woodhull, describes the keys to getting around Yates County and wishes his father well as he recovers in the hospital. Get well soon!

I had a tough weekend as computer problems kept me home on Sunday. As I sit here on Sunday night I think I have things fixed and if you are seeing this now then I guess I do. To say it was frustrating would be an understatement.
 
It will mean a busy week for me as I really need to get going in the studio to get you guys some new stuff to listen to. But we’ve been here before and made it work so I am hopeful that everything will work out fine.
 
Tomorrow I will head to Yates County for a mid week RoC show and next Sunday I will make my plans to go to Glen Ridge as I should have yesterday. I am so sorry that I have had these two bad days in a row but I’ll figure out what went wrong on Sunday and make sure it does not happen again.

Things did not go as planned on Saturday and I apologize for that. Our church had a mass for my mom and it was more emotional that I thought it would be. So I headed to Fulton Speedway fast to get a few chats in before the racing started and headed back home to be with my family.
 
I will on the road today as I will make my first Glen Ridge Motorsports show in several years. I am really looking forward to getting there today and have been invited into the tour to hang out with Jim King. Thanks for the invite Jim and I’ll see you later today.
 
On Tuesday we’ll make our way to Yates County Speedway for a mid week ROC show. I have heard nothing but good things about the place this season and can’t wait to see it for myself. I hope to see you guys there too.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you to listen to today on the Audio Page. I begin with a winner from Friday. Pat Ward talked about his Modified feature win at Brewerton, his first since the 2009 season.
