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.
Race a Galletta's Kart =
Veteran: $10-12 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.

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!

- a racer in only his 2nd full race event at Galletta's and brother-in-law of last week's winner - won the 12-kart, 45-Lap Feature in the Galletta's #9, again leading every lap from his pole starting position, although he had to hold off challenges from George Russell, Matt Stevens, and even a loose header.  Results, points and pictures are now up.

Galletta's Karting Club - 2010 Season, Event #5 - Monday, July 5th, 2010:
 
 
MC Howell & Melissa Stecvens take the 7/5/2010 Twin 30s!2010 Season, Event #5- Monday, July 5th, 2010 - Independence Day Twin-30s Night: Michael "MC" Howell finally won his first feature win in his 4th season of racing at Galletta's in the Galletta's Greenhouse #0 kart.

He became the 7th different winner of 7 features so far this season at Galletta's, including the 5th 1st-time first feature winner so far at John J. Galletta Memorial Karting Speedway. The racing, again, is just so close that passes are rare and starting handicapped up front is vital for your chances. Only aon a "real" track with honest and fair competition does this happen. Otherwise, you have one or two dudes just dominating. Not so at Galletta's. DVD: $5

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

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!

Galletta's Karting Club - 2010 Season, Event #8 - Monday, July 26th, 2010:
 
Kelly Miller wins in the Galletta's Greenhouse #7 Kart on 7/26/2010!2010 Season, Event #8- Monday, July 26th, 2010 - Driving the Galletta's Greenhouse #7 kart, Kelly Miller, braving a rough high groove, passed Matt Stevens and held him off from a near-pass to win his 1st feature race at Galletta's Monday. The usually fast high groove bumpy and made the low groove unusually the slightly quicker line to see Kelly become the 9th different winner of 9 features so far this season at Galletta's in 2010.

Galletta's Karting Club - 2010 Season, Event #9 - Sunday, August 1st, 2010:

This breaks Matt's drought with his last win coming during the 2009 finale last November. Matt became the 10th different winner of 10 features so far this season at Galletta's in 2010. Points, results, pictures up and videos soon!

Galletta's Karting Club - 2010 Season, Event #10 - Sunday, August 8th, 2010:

The 2nd 30-Lapper went top the man who led most of the 1st feature until he broke - Hard As F*** Randy "Bobandi" Platt (in the Galletta's Greenhouse #2 kart), fighting off a furious last-lap in-traffic challenge from Matt Stevens. Randy's own kart was completed in time for the race, but due to an inability to work out the handling bugs, he just put his motor back on the Galletta's #2 and rode it to it's 1st victory of the year. Points, results, pictures and videos all forthcoming during the week.

Galletta's Karting Club - 2010 Season, Event #11 - Sunday, August 15th, 2010:

2010 Season, Event #11- Sunday, August 15th, 2010 - A 12-competitor, 45-Lap Feature Event was won by the points-leader, and Matt Stevens became the 2nd two-feature winner of the season when he put his Galletta's Greenhouse #3 kart into victory lane at Galletta's Backyard Karting Speedway. Yes, his wife gave him a victory kiss, and yes, a Canadian Goose did invade the victory proceedings. Only at Galletta's, folks. Details/points/pics/vids forthcoming, sirs and ma'ams.

 
Galletta's Karting Club - 2010 Season, Event #12 - Tuesday, August 24th, 2010:

2010 Season, Event #12- Tuesday, August 24th, 2010 - Sunday and Monday got rained out, so an almost perfect track awaited us on Tuesday for a 55-Lap Feature Event. This one was dominated by 2009 defending Track Champion Chris Stevens in the Galletta's Greenhouse #4 kart, his 1st feature win since last summer at Galletta's Greenhouse Speedway. His lovely wife Rungnapha, and cat Carlee posed with the handsome, talented, ingenious and powerful triumphant expert victor (also the webmaster, haha!). Details/points up & pics/vids forthcoming.

Galletta's Karting Club - 2010 Season, Event #13 - Sunday, August 29th, 2010:


Shadoe Russell may have led 43 laps, but Matt Stevens led the last 2 en route to his 3rd Feature win of 2010! Plus, a new foe emerges...2010 Season, Event #13- Sunday, August 29th, 2010 - Shadoe Russell led 43 laps right out of the gate Sunday, most of them by a rather large margin. However, there were 45 laps to be scored, and after a late-race restart with a lap to go, Matt Stevens pulled the Galletta's Greenhouse #3 kart outside of Doe's #26 and was able to steal a near-perfect race away from the impressive Doe-Boi-Fresh. Plus, a wild ride when last week's winner Chris Stevens caught AJ Nason's wheel, went airborne and then blew through a freaking tire-wall! Awesome! Plus, startling revelations occurred in the post-race footage! Details, points & pics up/vids forthcoming.


Galletta's Karting Club - '10 Season, Event #14 - Sunday, Sept. 5th, 2010:

Arnold "AJ" Nason won the 1st feature at Galletta's in the Hammerd/Nason #35, while the 2nd feature went to Tim Galletta in the Sid Harvey/Galletta #54.
2010 Season, Event #14- Sunday, September 5th, 2010 - Pre-Classic Twin-30s Night: Arnold "AJ" Nason picked up his 1st feature win at Galletta's in the Hammerd/Nason #35, while the 2nd feature went to Tim Galletta in the Sid Harvey/Galletta #54. Both karts were formerly owned and driven by father-and-son team of Dick & Nick Dann, who could not accomplish this feat in their tenure of drivers (albeit with Galletta's rebuilds and one new motor). Shadoe Russell, unfortunately, has had around 69 lead laps in the past two weeks, but has come up short twice via late-race restarts. This race was originally scheduled for Monday because of Sunday being the Oswego Speedway's International Classic 200, but since that was re-scheduled to Monday due to rain, Sunday became our race date, just like back in 2006! Confusing, I know, but it's how we roll, son.

Galletta's Karting Club - '10 Season, Event #15 - Sunday, Sept. 12th, 2010:


2010 Season, Event #15- Sunday, September 12th, 2010 - Despite the passing of last Labor Day Weekend, racing is not done by a long shot, son. Randy "The Bodacious Bobandi" Platt, lookin' all hard n' $#!t, scored a dominant victory in his Murder #187 kart, which he has worked tirelessly on with Matty-Joey Stevens for a few months for this moment of glory (no holes included, you twisted sickos). Points, Results & Pics up, B!tc#! DVD: $5

Galletta's Karting Club - '10 Season, Event #16 - Saturday, Sept. 18th, 2010:


[PART 2 of YouTube Video Forthcoming...]


2010 Season, Event #16- Saturday, September 18th, 2010 - 9-karts strong, a tight, close, clean, bumper-to-bumper 45-lap feature was won by George Russell when he passed his son Shadoe for the lead early on and held of advances from Jeff Tetro and Melissa Stevens. Although it his 2nd career feature win in the Galletta's Greenhouse #6 kart, it is the 1st with his new Matt Stevens built motor. Points & pics are now up and videos forthcoming.

Galletta's Karting Club - '10 Season, Event #17 - Saturday, Sept. 24th, 2010:

[YouTube Video Forthcoming...]

2010 Season, Event #17 - Friday, September 24th, 2010 - We knew one of these days it was going to happen due to his progression from his shaky rookie campaign, and it finally did - Shadoe Russell led all 45 laps from his pole starting position en route to his 1st career feature win in his Rubbin' Is Racin' #26! Another tight, close, clean, bumper-to-bumper 45-lap feature with 9 drivers was likely the regular season finale, as the 2010 Points Champion shall be decided in this upcoming weekend's 15th Annual Galletta's Karting Klassic 200-Lap Championship -- the largest and longest-running kart race in the known area -- which determines the overall ironman karting champion of Oswego County. If you race one kart race all year, make it this one. Points & pics up and videos forthcoming as I get caught up.

Galletta's Karting Club - '10 Season, Event #18 - Saturday, Oct. 2nd, 2010
THE 15TH ANNUAL GALLETTA'S KARTING KLASSIC 200:

[YouTube Video Forthcoming...]

CLICK TO ENLARGE2010 Season, Event #18 - Saturday, October 2nd, 2010 - A 14-competitor 200-lapper was in store for the 15th Annual Galletta's Karting Klassic 200-Lap Championship, which also doubles as the season Points Finale (points will be tallied during the week) and again did not disappoint as a close, competitive, fiery race with a lot of drama. At the end, however, it was the intrepid- Kyle Reuter, racing his 1st Feature at Galletta's since the 2007 Klassic, emerged from the marathon race on top in the Galletta's Greenhouse #0 kart. He became 1st visiting driver to ever win a Galletta's Go-Kart Klassic (Matt Stevens won 10, Chris won 3, and Wes won 1)! Point-leaders Chris and Matt -- while  running 2nd and 3rd late -- tangled together and had to  go to the rear, and then-leader Gary Miller Sr. started slowing down, which led Kyle - who did lead over 100 laps early before having to change karts due to a sputtering motor - to take the lead late and not look back. There were many battles and tremendous racing from 1st lap to last. Everyone at Galletta's would like to thank everyone who was at the cookout and all of the drivers, and also congratulate Kyle on a great race. Pics, points and and descriptions up, &  videos within the next few weeks as I get caught up.

Now, after the Galletta's 200-Lap Klassic Championship, the undisputedly largest, most economical and longest-running Karting Class in Central NY's annual point series for the 2010 Galletta's Greenhouse Karting Season is now finalized, and this one was the closest in history!:

You can also race with some of the winningest and most experienced karters in the local area - some of whom have raced in all sorts of racing classes and race here because we have the best bang for the buck. Plus, you can choose to either race "Arrive-and-drive" Galletta's Team Karts for gas-and-parts money, or build your own for just a few hundred dollars.  Our facebook group is where we post updates, so if you are on there, join up! We have arrive-and-drive, competitive "race-ready" karts that have all won features available to race. Rookie/Novice races for beginners. Veteran races for the experienced pros. One class (the biggest in the area for over 10 years now), horsepower-to-weight handicap ratio. Inverted wins and points-per-race handicapped starts. We can also help you build your own competitive kart for far less money than other forms of karting. Why? Because it is a private backyard track with friends and family having fun putting on a friendly race, avoiding the typical organized kart track BS with big money spenders, politics and people just using karting as a footstool to get into a big track. This is just pure, fair, fun, clean racing. Want to see what a season is like?


John J. Galletta Memorial KartwayGalletta's Go-Kart Backyard Speedway is a 0.133887 mile dirt oval with 20-degree banked turns. It is located behind Galletta's Greenhouse in Oswego, NY, and can be seen from outer space! The single-wheel-drive gasoline-fueled flathead motor karts take the track between 15-17 seconds per lap which averages over 30 mph (approximately 45-50 mph top speed in the straights). Our speeds are comparable to alcohol/methanol-fueled karts that cost 8 times as much because we use mostly stock parts and gas on a large track; leading to more karts, more competition, and more fun. Our class is usually the largest and most competitive in the area. Thanks to Google Earth for this Spring 2006 photo.  More->

Galletta's Go-Kart Klassic
Every year in mid-September since 1996, we host a HUGE Galletta's Go-Kart Klassic Championship race, which is now at 200 laps (and averages 10-15 karts). Judging by our track size and year started, the Galletta's Klassic is the longest single-tank karting feature event in the world, and the longest-running and most prestigious of the local area. All local karters worth anything either have run it or flat out fear it. This ain't no Kiddie Kart Track BS. This is IronMan Adult Warhorse Karting at it's finest. Proclaimed the "Street Cred" of Karting... enter it to see what kind of a driver you really are.
