On the second installment of our Finger Lakes Young Professional Series we welcome Editor of Syracuse Woman Magazine, Alyssa LaFaro. Alyssa, Amanda and Cassy talk about managing busy schedules, balancing work, and using social media on their jobs.
This week, we catch up with Brandon Hayes from Illinois and Shawn Pease from Washington along with Steve Bucknam in New Hampshire to talk about the IDDA, and the evolution of demolition derby as it grew along side social media.
Shawn Donath: 31:00
Danny Varin: 47:00
Tracy Hines: 60:00
We also debate track preparation practices, and if that is the root cause of slick tracks, or if the cars make the tracks that way.
We recap the Dirt Northeast Modified Hall of Fame inductions, which preceded Matt Sheppard’s win in the All Star Weekend event at Rolling Wheels Raceway. We also discuss future live dates, including Super DIRT Week, Eastern States Weekend, and the Turkey Derby at Wall Stadium.
