Tonight, we welcome the Guererri family to the 31st Lap.
Paul Guererri picked up his 31st career win at Canandaigua Motorsports Park. We catch up with him before Nick Guererri, and then Matt Guererri. Matt is a regular in the sportsman divison at Canandaigua Motorsports Park after moving out of the New Legends division last year. Frankie Guererri Jr. rounds out the quartet, and talks about his weekly battles in the New Legends Sportsman and pro stock ranks.
We welcome another star-studded field to the 31st Lap. Birthday boy Rob Bellinger will be in to talk about his win at Brewerton last Friday, and Mike Mahaney will talk about his co-win Wednesday at Can-Am. Marc Minutolo will discuss his record-setting win Saturday at Canandaigua Motorsports Park, and Jay Fish comes in as the closer to talk about the newly revamped Dirt Motorsports Hall of Fame.
We look at the upcoming schedule for Rolling Wheels Raceway, argue the value of handicapping versus open draws at weekly venues, and welcome multi-time 2012 winner Brett Hearn and first-time ESS winner Sammy Reakes IV to the program.

Sammy woke up Sunday with thinking his win was a dream and talks about his upcoming season in a 360 Sprint Car. Brett won his third straight at Lebanon Valley, and is the first driver to do that in 10 years. He also talks about the move of his ‘The Big One’ event to Albany-Saratoga.
In breaking news, Mike announces the Tom Ames Dedication to Racing event scheduled for full-fendered cars at Rolling Wheels Raceway July 3. The event will be for full-fendered cars, and will be 27 laps in distance, in honor of Tom’s favorite driver’s number, Danny Johnson (27J). DIRTcar is also working with Dirt Track Digest to make the event happen, and Mike expressed deep appreciation for that.
