Fully into the postseason money races, the 31st Lap dives head-first into the Modified stars, chatting with Mohawk SDS Modified winner Jimmy Phelps and then Pennsylvania regular Jeff Strunk. DIRTcar NE Series Director Joe Skotnicki drops by for a quick Q&A and we finish with a discussion about DIRT Week with Finish Line Web Design’s Craig Revelle and then Freedom 76er runner-up Bobby Varin.
One of our first-ever guests – two-time Super DIRT Week Champion Stewart Frisen – returns to talk about his season, which thus far includes a coveted track title at Fonda Speedway. We also catch up with Jeff Hachmann to talk about Super DIRT Week developments at Cayuga County Fair Speedway and Canandaigua Motorsports Park and Shawn Donath returns to the 31st Lap following his run from 19th to the win with the Empire Super Sprints at Utica-Rome Speedway.
We go a little off the beaten path in this episode, visiting first with Mike Welch, a storied stock division racer with many Canandaigua Motorsports Park accolades to his credit before chatting with Ryan DeLong, the winner of the first derby Chris went to this season. We dive head-first into the debate: Is combative motorsports welcome in the realm of racing-style motorsports?
We also break some major news for the 31st Lap:
Finish Line Web Design will be presenting the podcast over the next several weeks, and will also be a primary supporter in helping us make our on-track debut when we do our first ’31st Lap Live’ remote pre- and post-race shows on location at one of the major racing events later this month.
We’re also proud to announce World of Outlaws star Joey Saldana will be joining us next week.
Due to a rained-out baseball game, Mike could not join us, but we anticipate his return next week for the Joey Saldana interview and more announcements regarding ‘The 31st Lap Live.’
