PRICES:
Galletta's Kart Club is a free, not-for-profit, backyard racetrack. We operate as a weekly point series raceway (Summer Sundays) only on nominal, bare-bones donations. For a regular-season race:

Spectator =
Free. Donations welcome.
Race your own kart =
$3-5 donation to Matt, or donated goods/services.
Race a Galletta's Kart =
Veteran: $15 donation.
Rookie: $15-20 donation.
(Why? Rookies wreck more and race TWO features if they qualify!)
A copy of your own race's DVD =
$5 per DVD.
Each DVD contains the entire evening of racing from up to two camera angles (and sometimes more!).

These are not fees. The nominal Donations cover the gas and parts for 12 equalized Galletta-type racing karts, in addition to electricity for lights, water, and none of the above ever cover a tip for Matt's work for the track. Matt prepares 12 racing karts out of his own wallet every single year, always in the red, and the donations never once have covered gas and parts. We run for no profit. Why do we do it? (1) the fun of economical, equalized racing and (2) avoidance of kart tracks that only exist to make money and allow unethical biases, cheating, and fighting.

Galletta's Karting Club "Basic Info" PageWelcome! We are a Karting Club that created an inexpensive alternative to "competitive karting." We invented and organized a race series of extremely affordable Single Wheel Drive "Gas stocker" karts for a Points championship every summer at Galletta's Greenhouse Karting Speedway. We have over twelve karts, many of which are available to be raced every weekend, so new drivers are always welcome. Hybrid between an WKA-type flat-kart kart (but far cheaper) and a yard kart (but far faster and more durable) built to race on any dirt track - backyard or racing facility - the most affordable professional, competitive karting series in the world. Pro racers who've tried it often say they have the most fun racing with us. Tough economy? Race for mere pocket change. We also record every race and make them available on DVD! Want to race? You are invited to join our economical racing club. The weekly karting club race series starts in June and lasts through October. Enjoy the site!


Galletta's Karting Club - 2010 Season, Event #7 - Sunday, July 18th, 2010:


2010 Season, Event #7- Sunday, July 18th, 2010 - Driving the Galletta's Greenhouse #9 kart, Jeff Tetro, won his 1st feature race at Galletta's Sunday.  He became the 8th different winner of 8 features so far this season at Galletta's, including the 6th 1st-time first feature winner so far at John J. Galletta Memorial Karting Speedway. The racing is so close that handicapping and staying out of accidents are critical more so than any other year in our 20 year history of racing Karts at Galletta's! 15-karts large -- even without three regular drivers being unable to race this week -- our heats are amazingly have more karts than most other local karting classes features! And the competition is VERY close, bumper-to-bumper all season so far! Not bad for $500-700 racing karts on a free, donation-run backyard speedway, huh? Sorry for the delays in the page's update - driver/web-man/video-man/stat-man Chris Stevens here had a wisdom tooth extraction Monday morning that laid me up for about a day. Now let's get to it:

Sadly, points leader Tim Galletta missed the show to spend more time with his wife and kids, soAJ Nason and crew posing next to the Hammerd #35 on 7/18/2010 not only did he lose his season-long stranglehold on the lead, but he was unable to debut his Sid Harvey #54 kart (formerly the original Dick Dann #86 kart slightly rebuilt), which looks sharp and fast! He will be eligible for a make-up race (which was meant exactly for situations such as these) and scored at the end of the event he missed. (RIGHT) Speaking of debuting slightly re-built and re-painted former Dick Dann mobiles, AJ Nason debuted his wonderful new decal-job by his wife on his Hammerd #35 (formerly the Destroyer Dann Racing #68). Great job, AJ and crew! Plus, Randy Platt also debuted his own motor on the Galletta's Greenhouse #2 kart until he gets his own chassis to plant it on, and it proved again to be yet another fast power-plant built by Matt! The feature went as follows:
