Jamie Mills told me about some issues he had in Florida and where his next race will be at.
Mat Williamson got better each night at Volusia and told me where he could have been better.
 
We wrap up the week here with more from last week in Volusia as we chat with a pair of drivers who ran there all four nights. Both of them had some issues which is very common and I know you can learn a little from each of these conversations.
 
But now the can is empty and after a day off on Thursday I need to get back to work today. I’ll be in the studio this afternoon and this evening and am looking for some more requests as I am all caught up there. Send me your thoughts at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com and I’ll be sure to get on it as soon as possible, maybe even today.
 
It will be a fun weekend as my youngest is having what will surely be a huge birthday party for her on Sunday. She is a little social butterfly and 18 kids have rsvp’d that they will be there. Wow! Wish me well as I try to wrangle them up on the bowling lanes. Wow!
 
Now let’s chat more about what I have for you to check on out on the Audio Page. I begin with a veteran driver who was on an unfamiliar tire last week. Jamie Mills told me about some issues he had in Florida and where his next race will be at. He explained why they had to change an engine after the Tuesday practice, what he learned about shocks while at Volusia and how much he enjoys being at the track with his daughters on Saturdays in Delaware. 
 
Mat Williamson got better each night at Volusia and told me where he could have been better. He explained how they got rid of a throttle push, why an early pit stop could have helped on Wednesday and looks ahead to getting back to his two weekly homes in Ontario & Pennsylvania.

Jimmy Phelps walked me through his races in Florida and talked about the work in Weedsport.
Doug Manmiller gets ready to bartend tonight in Applebee’s at the Fairgrounds Square Mall.
 
More good stuff for you today as we talk about what is going on right now. Jimmy Phelps and others have been busy at the track in Weedsport and today he’ll tell us the work they have been doing, what they hope to accomplish this season and where the hope to go in the future. I know you’ll like what you hear.
 
Plus we’ll talk to Doug Manmiller as he gets ready to bartend tonight in support of the car show at the Fairgrounds Square Mall in Reading, Pennsylvania. No, Doug won’t be making any wild drinks but he will pour you a cold beer and provide a sympathetic bartender ear so go on out tonight and see him at the Applebee’s.
 
As for the rest of the week, we’ll be back talking about Florida tomorrow with Jamie Mills and Mat Williamson as they recap their races at Volusia as well as what they are doing now.
 
But first, let’s chat more about what we have for you on the Audio Page. I start with news from both down south and here in Central New York. Jimmy Phelps walked me through his races in Florida and talked about the work taking place right now at the Weedsport Speedway. He told me how a test in Georgia helped get them ready for Florida, what it was like to have Matt Sheppard as a new teammate and runs down some changes they are making in Weedsport. 
 
Doug Manmiller gets ready to bartend tonight in Applebee’s at the Fairgrounds Square Mall. He told me how he has done behind the bar in the past, reminded folks about the interview session taking place at 7 PM tonight at center court and describes a new deal he has for some shows at Big Diamond.

Billy Pauch recapped his 3 top 6 finishes at Volusia and wondered when New Egypt would open.
 
I got very busy on Tuesday as I recorded six new conversations for you to listen to this week. I also have some news on Weedsport Speedway too as I caught Jimmy Phelps as he was leaving the facility. He’ll be up tomorrow and a hint for you…there is a lot going on.
 
First though we’ll chat with some racers who were down in Florida last week. Justin Haers was fortunate enough to win a race down there and Billy Pauch was solid on all three nights. Later in the week you’ll hear from Mat Williamson as well as he recaps his Florida trip.
 
And a reminder goes out to all you Pennsylvania racefans to go to Fairgrounds Square Mall where over 70 racecars are on display through Saturday. Plus guest bartenders will be at the Applebee’s tonight, tomorrow and Friday. And tomorrow we’ll hear from Thursday’s guest beer server Doug Manmiller.

Justin Haers talks about his three races at Volusia that included a win on the very first night. He told me how some nice laps in the Tuesday practice helped him know how he was, how happy he was the performance of his new car and runs down his plans for the 2014 racing season. 
 
Billy Pauch recapped his 3 top six finishes at Volusia and wondered when New Egypt would open. He told me about being a little tight early on, how nice it was to bring home a car with no damage on it and reminded racers about his driving schools at New Egypt on April 13th and May 18th

Brett Deyo reminds race fans to check out his mall show in Reading and talks about the NDRL.
 
Speedweeks is now history and the 2014 season is in full swing. I enjoyed the NASCAR races over the weekend and will have a Doug’s Thoughts up on that tomorrow. Plus I’ll be back in the studio and trying to track down some of the competitors from the past week so we can hear from them.
 
I’m taking requests at doug@dougsdirtdiary.com and I hope to hear from you as we dissect what happened on a very stretch in Florida. And if you want to see racecars now, you can by going to Fairgrounds Square Mall in Reading as Brett Deyo has assembled over 70 racecars for this show on the site of the speedway itself.
 
Brett tells us about the show today and we meet someone new as we chat with Alex Bright who was victorious in Florida. This was a suggestion from Ty Garl and he always steers us right when it comes to driver to interview. Give this one a listen as there is a lot of good stuff in it.
 
Now let’s chat about what is new on the Audio Page where we start by welcoming someone new to the website. Alex Bright told me about his 5 races in Florida that included a win and his 4th at The Chili Bowl. He talked about his next two race weekends, his trips to Australia and where he would like to be in a few years. Real nice one here! 
 
Brett Deyo reminds race fans to check out his mall show in Reading and talks about the NDRL. He talked about some of the 70 cars on display at Fairgrounds Square Mall through Saturday, told me who the guest bartenders are at Applebee’s later this week and explained what the NDRL sanction means for his super series.

Dave Rogers explained why he will not run weekly this year and how much he enjoyed Syracuse.
 
Well that was fun to see the season start and now race teams all over the area are working harder than ever as they prepare their own racecars for some fun in just a while. The new season for us will be here soon and we wish all the teams the best as the work in their shops.
 
I’m back today with a pair of conversations that I recorded on Saturday. I knew yesterday would be tough as most had plans to watch Daytona so I was fortunate to be able to get work done and I thank everyone who helped. I can’t do this alone so thanks not just to the guys you see today but to every racer out there who gives of their time to help the sport.
 
I’ll be back in the studio today and back writing as we have some Modified races from Florida to chat about. It will be a busy week but a fun one as now the 2014 season is officially underway. 
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page for today. Brett Tonkin talked about his three win season at I-88 and the new race shop they are renovating. He told me how close that shop is to being fully functional, what he has left to do on his Modified and ran down his plans for 2014 which will start at Orange County in March.
 
Dave Rogers explained why he will not run weekly this year and how much he enjoyed Syracuse. He told me how his life will change in May, why he does not have much work to do to his stock car and how his start in go carts at age 12 helped him to be smooth on the track.

Claude Hutchings Jr. told me about his recent road course race and the new chassis they have.
Gary Montgomery tells me about the return of the BRP Can Am Late Model Series for 2014.
 
It was a balmy day on Saturday and I did some work in the studio after the Nationwide Series race and before the SU game. And I got ahead as all I’ll be doing today is watching the Daytona 500 with my daughter Allie as she has become a big fan of the big track.
 
I think it is great that a bunch of new drivers have made the field for today and we have a few young drivers we will be rooting for. My daughter is rooting for Josh Wise as he had no sponsors on his car at all. It’s nice to see that she picks up on these things and nice to see her rooting for the underdog.
 
I hope you all have a great time watching the race today and let’s hope it is a safe one as you know how things can go. Be safe, be fast and have fun!
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you to listen to on the Audio Page. I begin with a young driver who has some new stuff for both dirt and asphalt. Claude Hutchings Jr. told me about his recent road course race and the new chassis they have. He explained how a brake issue sidelined him at Road Atlanta, how they will work the new Sportsman into the rotation and reflected on his ROC Sportsman championship. 
 
Gary Montgomery tells me about the return of the BRP Can Am Late Model Series for 2014. He talked about the tracks that are on board for this year, a change in how the champion is decided and analyzes the playing field for Late Model drivers as well as the many choices they have.

Brett Hearn recapped his pair of races at Volusia and looked ahead to what awaits him at home.
David Marcuccilli remembered his 7 win season than included his first ever Modified races.
 
I got a lot done on a sunny Friday as the snow continues to melt here in Central New York although not too much too soon we hope. I was fortunate enough to catch Brett Hearn after the rainout was announced Friday night at Volusia. I paired it with Sportsman racer David Marcuccilli as he gets ready for his 2014 season.
 
I’ll be in the studio today and watching racing in between as my youngest daughter may be turning into a fan right before my eyes. She watched all of the qualifiers on Thursday and was amazed at the crash that ended it all. It’s fun to watch her learn and who knows, maybe she’ll be one of us real soon.
 
Now let’s chat more about what we have for you today on the Audio Page. I begin with a man who is down in the not so sunny state of Florida. Brett Hearn recapped his pair of races at Volusia and looked ahead to what awaits him at home. He told me about a tire issue the first night, how a caution might have helped on Thursday and what his goal is for the Florida trip. 
 
David Marcuccilli remembered his 7 win season than included his first ever Modified races. He explained how those Modified races helped him in Sportsman, how proud he was to win his first ever championship in a traveling series and how things look in his race shop right now.
