7/27/2009,Fred Collins,Winner,Galletta's #9

Fred Collins after his historic first feature win on 7/27/2009, after he came back from a wild flip in the first 30-lap feature of the night, shook it off, and then led the majority of the second 30-lapper in the Galletta's #9! Five years of winless racing, wild accidents, and close calls with victory lane falling short finally paid off for Fred!

Fred Collins

Fearlessly Fast Flippin' Freddie, Wild-man, Wild Werewolf, Bionic Hip Hipster.

Galletta's Go-Karts #9, #2, #7 or #1. Bought Howard Seabrook's Spongebob Squarepants machine in 2007, but oddly never raced it once anywhere, and had it stolen from him. Also bought one of Ed Maynes old karts, but, again, never raced it anywhere and apparently a neighbor burned it and his ex-girlfriend took it from him and tried to sell it to us (which she asked too high of a price for). Poor Fred always has bad luck! Well, at least he won some races in 2009!

Years Racing Go-karts at Galletta's:
2004-current (sporadic because he can't afford parts and gas money).

Career highlights:

Fred's career highlight to date was on 7/29/2009 as seen in this YouTube video, where he flipped in the first 30-lap feature, yet came back and won the second 30-lap feature - his career first after five long years of racing!

Won in 2009. Led a large portion of the 2005 Klassic. Finished well in 2005 and 2006 Klassics. Excellent attendance until he broke his hip in an off-season snowmobile accident. Always finishes well in the Point Standings. All-Time Career leader in flips. Still seeking his first win. Galletta's All-Time Leader of most career races without a single win of any kind, heat or feature before 2009. Fred would race more if he had more money or sponsors.

Did you know?:
That Fred broke his hip in a snowmobile accident before the 2007 season and has raced with a slow-healing broken hip. Has flipped and/or flown off of his kart countless times. Here's one from 7/8/2007, where yours truly had to pull him off of the ground after he fell off of his kart .:

Then Fred had possibly the scariest accident ever in Galletta's raceway history. Matt Stevens, Wes Stevens, and Kyle Reuter caught tires, and going 35-45mph, Matt and Kyle, out of control, drove directly into Fred Collins, who parked in the middle of the track at the start of the race. Even though the wreck was horrific, video-watching dolts on YouTube constantly give it poor ratings because they mistake it for the Worst Wreck on YouTube. It isn't. It was the worst wreck on Galletta's Backyard Speedway caught on tape. Nice that I get wrath because of all the low IQ-ed people out there in YouTube land. Observe:
