This week, Mike returns to the studio, we catch up with Hall of Fame 60 winner Stewart Friesen and runner-up Gary Tomkins, and then we chat with the winner of the USAC event at Grandview, Daron Clayton! Then, we dive into the potential replacements for Danny Johnson at the newly-opened seat at Mike Payne Racing, and the penatlies levied for a timing chain infraction in the crate sportsman division.
This week, we catch up with 15-year old William Byron, a US Legends Cars racer from down in Charlotte who has amassed a remarkable resume after cutting his teeth with iRacing. After that, we chat with Jeff Hachmann and Jay Fish of the Dirt Motorsports Hall of Fame about next week’s Hall of Fame inductions in Weedsport June 4 and the Hall of Fame 60 at Rolling Wheels Wednesday June 5.
Mike takes the week off to play baseball with Oswego, Jay Fish of the Dirt Motorsports Northeast Hall of Fame stops in to welcome Rich back to the show, and John remains grumpy as ever. Kevin Ridley pops in to talk about his win in the sportsman division at Canandaigua Motorsports Park, the competition in the division and we take questions and comments from the live chat about who is and isn’t in the Hall of Fame.
For the first time, Doug Manmiller visits the 31st Lap, and Dirt Motorsports Hall of Fame photographer and longtime friend of the show Jay Fish stops in for a live appearance. We also chat about our favorite tracks in and around the northeast, and career race/track/state counts.
