The Complete Galletta's Karting Club of Oswego NY's Race Index:
Please check out our sponsored links:
Welcome! We are a Karting Club that invented and races extremely affordable 5hp flathead, Single Wheel Drive "Gas stocker" karts for a Points championship every summer at Galletta's Greenhouse Karting Speedway and a traveling points show at other local area tracks when invited and allowed our own division. Hybrid between a WKA flat-kart (similar speeds, but far less cost) and a yard kart (but much stronger and faster than one) and built to race anywhere (backyard speedways or race facilities) - the cheapest competitive karting series in the world! We also have recorded weekly dirt karting classes in the Oswego area and make them available on DVD!
Galletta's Karting Club - 2009 Season, Week 5: The Gas Flathead Championship Series of Oswego, NY continued on
Sunday, July 12th, 2009 at John J. Galletta Memorial Speedway:
Russell Hockey won a 50-lapper on July 12th, 2009, his 2nd career win. Russ dominated most of the event, holding off several charges by Buddy Cottom late in the race via traffic. 8 competitors (all veterans) made for a rather quick race, with only a couple of cautions for debris and a spin. This makes for 6 different winners in 7 features so far this season at Galletta's. All this and flower beds too, to all the flower-phobes out there, a condition I didn't even know existed until recently!
This particular weekend, we only had 8 drivers, but being all veterans (all between 2-14 years experience), we had only a couple of cautions in our 50-lap Feature race. Russ Hockey took the win, his 2nd of his career, and proving just how competitive our karting class is, his win makes 6 different winners in 7 features so far in 2009!

1st. Russ Hockey (Hockey #00)
2nd. Buddy Cottom (Galletta's #6)
