In a full show, we welcome esteemed guest Derak Covey, the track photographer at Utica-Rome Speedway and Fonda Speedway. Derak spent the whole night on the mic, and was part of the interviews with Frank Cozze, Matt Sheppard, and Kreig Heroth. Cozze, after winning Super DIRT Week moved to 410 sprints. He was third behind Daryn Pittman and Logan Schuchart at New Egypt Speedway. Sheppard won the Race of Champions Dirt Tour event Wednesday night at Utica-Rome Speedway. By way of two straight wins, Heroth sewed up his first career track championship in the Small Block Super Modified division at Oswego Speedway.
Larry Wight and Steve Poirier stop by to discuss the Methanol Meltdown and their plans for the 2012 season, we catch up on our Fantasy Racing teams with DickDragonMotorsports, we discuss Jarrett Andretti’s upcoming test session at Oswego Speedway and Davey Hamilton’s plans to race the Oswego Opener.
Dean Reynolds can’t let a sprint car discussion pass without chiming in, and becomes our second official spontaneous call-in (and helps spike our online viewership in the process).
We lose ourselves talking about the wonders of rental go-kart racing and the potential 31st Lap Outing at a local kart racing joint.
We also discuss a new ‘your topics’ segment… and need our listener’s input on Facebook.
Above all, we express our condolences to the family of Tom Ames, who passed away unexpectedly in a tragic car accident last week. Tom and Mike were friends way back in the Fire on Dirt days of Dirt Track Digest.
Danny Serrano talks about the addition of small block-powered cars to the modified division at New Egypt Speedway, and we talk about Stewart Friesen’s win in the annual King of the Can event at Penn Can Speedway.
