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.
Shadoe Russell and his Doe/Bartlett Racing #26 kart after a minor rebuild thanks to Russell Bartlett to also give the Doe-man more leg room and a little better handling to go along with a race cam installed by Galletta's master engine builder, Matt Stevens. Here he is after the July 26th, 2010 race at Galletta's.

Castaldo Year Started Racing at Galletta’s:
Shadoe raced a couple times in 2007, including the 2007 Oswego Kartway Classic, the 2008 Oswego Kartway Classic, and the 2009 Galletta's Klassic. Shadoe loves "Classic" races! He raced most of the late-2009 and nearly all of the 2010 seasons and plans on being in a racing team with his father George.
Assorted pics of Shadoe racing at Oswego Speedway's Dirt Kartway around a year or so before they called us all retards and booted our class. Guess they didn't like getting out-classed by homemade karts.
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 (where one local track operator never wanted to see him on his track), 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!
Shadoe at the 15th Annual Galletta's Greenhouse Karting Klassic 200 of 2010. Doe again raced all 200 laps in his 2nd straight Klassic, which is an amazing feat considering Doe's shaky beginnings as a racer. Plus, in 2010, he only got lapped once (but he also pulled off the track before crossing the line on lap 200).
Unfortunately, Shadoe oddly was caught in the middle of a gossip war between his mother, father, and Monica Gable over his excellent progression as a driver from his bad rookie season and the rumors of the family not racing at Galletta's in 2011, and unfortunately the entire family claims to not want to race at Galletta's any more because of it. Amazing that a delusional gossip angry at us over nonsense caused such a rift between not only good friends but even three whole families. Doe-boy even de-friended us all at Galletta's on facebook after all of the hard work we put into his kart and hospitality to him and his family. Odd, because Doe has hundreds of "friends", many of whom are people he does not know, people who barely know him, celebrities and fictional movie and TV show characters, and women who he calls his women who do not like him and have boyfriends and husbands, yet de-friended us who know him, like him, and helped him race for years when nobody else thought he was mentally competent enough to race and were trying to privately figure out ways to stop him from racing on his track without legal trouble. He also is planning to race methanol karts in 2011, and oddly enough at the very same track that he stalled, spun-out, and wrecked at so many times that he had racers from other divisions calling him and our whole division the dreaded "R" word that his mother hates so much. If the Russell's don't obey flags, attack the head flagger (MC) and his dad (Eric), show up intoxicated, and wreck a few times with people who put thousands of dollars into their karts and we'll see what happens.
