Racing points championship racing from 1996-current at Galletta's Greenhouse's
"Racing Yard Kart"/Go-Kart Speedway Every weekend from June-October at
Galletta's, and weekly all summer FORMERLY at Oswego Speedway's Dirty Kartway.
Professor Speedmonkey stole the Saturday, September 19th, 2009 Feature event at
Galletta's Karting Speedway driving the Galletta's #1 kart. He was able to track
down Ragin' Russ Hockey, who passed Tim Galletta early on and dominated until he
broke his drive hub on the very last lap. No cash-money prizes
or stickers here, as Speedmonkey won a banana. Easy to please a
true racer such as he. After all, he appears to be a monkey, and
made a monkey out of all other karters. And quite the braggart
as well. Now for a slideshow of his greatness!
Due to a freak occurrence where only 5 karters could
make it, we only held a short, 25-lap race. But what was odd is that one
of them was a mysterious creature from the woods.
Professor Speedmonkey" asked for the "slowest kart that nobody has won in
years with." That was the
Galletta's #1, as all of the 11 other
Galletta's karts have won at least one feature in the last year or so,
and the #1 hasn't won one race in recent memory (maybe 2004?). It's the
one kart that usually nobody wants to drive, and say that it either
spins out too easily, is too slow, or is just plain cursed - even after
a couple of rebuilds. He made a monkey out of us all, by winning the
Feature after using Monkey voodoo on Chris Stevens and Tim
Galletta, confusing them momentarily and passing them both in turn two,
then using Monkey hyper-speed to track down and then Monkey
laser-eyes to break Russ Hockey's drive-wheel hub on the last lap
and steal the win. He then went about bragging, putting all karters in
the world down. And why shouldn't he? Nobody has ever beat him. And
nobody ever will. In fact, nobody even tries because it is hopeless for
most karters to consistently win races where all of the karts are truly
equal - AND one has Monkey Super-powers!
