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 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.
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.
Our first spontaneous call-in listener visits us on the air – twice – and asks if we have any tickets to give away before revealing he lives next door to Buzzie Reuitmann. We chat with Mike Mahaney about his upset win in the Ice Jam at Fonda Speedway and a 50-some racing schedule mapped out for 2012. We talk about infield seating and the different perspectives offered at various northeastern speedways, Billy Pauch Jr. discusses the stout field he faces at New Egypt Speedway and his first opportunity to run at the track weekly and Jessica Power chats about her very busy sportsman season and the challenges of crossing the border between the US and Canada through the summer.
Dean Reynolds joins Mike Mallett and Chris Marquart for a discussion about the Empire Super Sprints, the Daytona 500, and all the racing from down in Florida. Dean dropped a compliment of shameless self-promotions, and we welcomed Matt Billings to the show to talk about becoming a sprint car owner by default and running his modified at Brockville, Cornwall and Mohawk International. Dean also gave periodic updates on the New York Yankees preseason game.
