Episode 34 ..::.. Change in the Lineup

In a twist, Justin Henderson joins Dean Reynolds in studio while Mike Mallett and John Baumes are off chasing racecars. Rich was out at a Soccer game. We visit with John Lazore of Mohawk International, Lance Yonge (2003, 04 ESS Champion), and Oswego two-seat SuperModified coordinator Roy Sova.

Lance Yonge
Lance won the last sanctioned race at Rolling Wheels, and is currently tied with Mal Lane for third with 36 career ESS wins. He’s looking forward to the July 3 event at Rolling Wheels, running in conjunction with the Tom Ames Dedication to Racing full-fendered event.

John Lazore talks about the challenges of renovating and running a racetrack, and discusses a different approach to promotions, being a former driver himself.

Roy Sova discusses the two-seater, and the Make A Wish program that will be working with an area youngster this weekend.

Larry Wight was schedule, but after a tough outing with the Late Model, we could not reach him and hope to get with him down the line.

Don’t forget the Live show July 12 at Amy’s Checkered Flag, and next week we’ll welcome Vic Coffey and Cody Bleau.

Yonge 43:00
Lazore 35:00
Sova 1:16

Episode 31 ..::.. No BS, No Politics

John thought it would be more fun to sit at home and watch the Prelude to The Dream on pay-per-view, the all-star late model event at Eldora Speedway that precedes the fabled ‘Late Model Dream.’ Chris cannot blame him at all.

Logan Schuchart stands as one of the hardest-to-book guests we’ve had, and we finally welcome him to the 31st Lap in this Episode.

We also catch up with Brett Deyo about the Clash at the Can event coming up June 12 at Penn Can Speedway, chat about trying to get Jarrett Andretti and catch up with Sportsman runner Dylan Evoy.

Keep an eye out for The 31st Lap Sponsorship at the Clash at the Can; we’ll pick up the pit pass for the 31st Starter. If 31 cars don’t start, we’ll pick up the pit pass for the leader of lap 31.

We’ll also debate the point: should Kurt Busch be done at this point, or no? (Link to video)

Driver of the Week: Justin Henderson, carrying The 31st Lap decal to two wins at Canandaigua Motorsports Park!

The 31st Lap decals went to victory lane several times at Canandaigua Motorsports Park!

Episode 25 ..::.. Hammer On It

Mike misses the event due to a baseball game, but we press on and welcome Chris Hile and Billy Dunn to the studio. Hile discusses how his third-place showing is like a victory following the off-season fire that claimed the team’s hauler. Dunn talks about running modifieds and sprint cars; we chat with him about the upcoming 360 Empire Super Sprints opener at Can-Am Motorsports Park.

In the newly-launched topic segment, we look at ‘why go to the races, anyway?’ and cover all sorts of results and upcoming local events, and take a deep look into the mailbag.

And of course, we touch on the wonders of fantasy modified racing (and the 31st Lap Team is doing mighty well).
