2012 Fall Bonus Points Series (including the D.S. Humphreys Twin 30s!)

2012 FALL BONUS POINT RACE SERIES

Posted on December 5th, 2012 by ChrusherComix Studios

1st Annual DS Humphrey's Twin-35s at Galletta's Speedway on 11/10/2012!

Every year at Galletta’s Backyard Speedway, our regular point season starts in the first race (usually the first Sunday in June) and concludes with the 200-Lap “Klassic Championship” race in either late-September or early-October. Any races after the Klassic are counted as Fall Bonus Point Challenge races. They are their own separate point series, but the points do count towards theGalletta’s All-Time Points listings, that concludes at the end of the season annually. This season, we had three such events – a pre-Klassic shakedown (on 9/24/2012), a post-Klassic rained out race (on 10/13/2012), and the DS Humphreys Twin 35s (on 11/10/2012). All are listed below:

The Galletta’s Karting Club Season 2012 – Volume #17 DVD:

Galletta's Greenhouse Karting 2012 Vol #17

As usual, almost every race at Galletta’s has been recorded from mid-2005-and-up (along with every Klassic from 1998), and all of the footage is available at $5 per disc. This DVD includes all the Fall races, plus the 3rd camera angle (stationary start-finish line cam) of the Klassic 200 – lots of footage, and some good action. An additional disc – Volume #18: Bonus Footage, which includes unused material from the whole season (independent digital camera footage) is also available. What’s on this one? See below:

9/24/2012: Ogie Narrates the Pre-Klassic Shakedown 30

Posted on December 5th, 2012 by ChrusherComix Studios

One of the Fall races was before Klassic – not counted for regular points because only a few drivers showed, but it was needed it it to shake down two brand-new karts.

Ogie Stevens is a condescending, generally evil bastard. Narrating the race from the tower angle, he gets as abusive and hateful as ever. Still... it was pretty funny, kinda'. But don't tell him we said that.

2012/09/24 racing action at Galletta's Backyard Karting Speedway!

It looked like Brian Galletta was going to win it in his brand-new #13. He broke – in fact, sheared his crankshaft, a first in our 17+ years of racing. Then, it looked like Eric Woolworth was going to win in his brand-new #78. a kart frame that sat on the side of the greenhouse for years, and finally was rebuilt and had a motor slapped on it. Eric was dominating until he got caught sleeping on a restart by Dave Spanfelner, but then Eric broke anyway. And speaking of Dave, he was looking like he may take it, too, until his kart started slowing badly, and he wrecked with two guys he brought out. So… *YAWN*…. it happened again. Matt Stevens came from last to first in the nearly-forgotten, always passed-over, dirty-looking Galletta’s #6 kart. Ooh, that crafty lil’ Matty-Joey!!!

9/24/2012 Pre-Klassic Shakedown 30 Finish:
1st. Matt Stevens (Galletta’s Greenhouse #6)
2nd. Billy Truax (Galletta’s Greenhouse #7)
3rd. Ron Ingison (Galletta’s Greenhouse #9)
4th. Dave Spanfelner (DS Humphrey’s #81) – DNF
5th. Eric Woolworth (Woolworth #78) – DNF
6th. Brian Galletta (Brian Galletta #13) – DNF

Posted on October 7th-December 4th, 2012 by ChrusherComix Studios

SATURDAY, October 6th, 2012: The 17th Annual Galletta’s Greenhouse Karting Club Championship 200 just went down. 14 karts, son.

10/13/2012: Dash-Before-The-Rain 20

Posted on December 5th, 2012 by ChrusherComix Studios

The lost footage: 10/13/2012 Fall race (footage recorded over... sigh)

This race was kind of a stinker. After the Klassic, most of the competitors are burned out after a long, competitive, exhausting season. Not to mention the controversial finish of the prior weekend’s Klassic left much drama to the point standings – as with an unknown finish, there was no conclusive champion. But even so, several drivers were ready for more – specifically 1st-season drivers. Problem: The weather did not cooperate, and not only did the already chilly race get rain-shortened (to about 20 laps), but the videotape accidentally got erased. The above snapshot is the only evidence we have that it even existed.

10/13/2012 Post-Klassic Rain-Shortened 25(?) Finish:
1st. Brian Galletta (Brian Galletta #13)
2nd. Matt Stevens (Galletta’s Greenhouse #3)
3rd. Dave Spanfelner (DS Humphrey’s #81)
4th. Melissa Stevens (SNF #80; Galletta’s Greenhouse #4)
5th. Eric Woolworth (Woolworth #78)
6th. Mike Ledger (Brian Galletta #28)

 

11/10/2012: 1st Annual D.S. Humphreys Twin-35s Fall Bonus Race

Posted on November 10th, 2012 by ChrusherComix Studios

2012/11/10 Twin-35's Winners (800px)

SATURDAY, November 10th, 2012: Ten karts – including a handful of new DS Humphreys invitational rookies – battled for seventy laps in the first ever DS Humphreys sponsored Fall Twin-35s race on 11/10/2012! Brian Galletta took the 1st feature in his brand-new #13 (his 2nd win of 2012), while Dave Spanfelner picked up his 1st career feature win in his DS Humphreys #54.

Assorted battle clips from the DS Humphrey's Twin-35s!

The first feature had some good battles with Dave Spanfelner, Eric Woolworth, and Brian Galletta taking shots at the lead, but Dave and Eric both broke and Brian Galletta was too fast for anyone else to deal with. This 1st feature became somewhat historic… it was the very 1st feature race at Galletta’s that Matt entered without Chris that Matt did not win. This is the 2nd Fall race in a row that Eric Woolworth looked fast enough to win going away, but broke while up front.

11/10/2012 D.S. Humphrey’s Twin-35 #1 Finish:1st. Brian Galletta (Brian Galletta Racing #13)
2nd. Brad Rees (Galletta’s Greenhouse #7)
3rd. Joe Buske (Brian Galletta Racing #28)
4th. Kim Rees (Galletta’s Greenhouse #6)
5th. Russel Crutchley (Galletta’s Greenhouse #1)
6th. Adam Lytle (Adam Lytle Racing #33c)
7th. Clue Gilman (Galletta’s Greenhouse #9)
8th. Eric Woolworth (Woolworth #02) – DNF
9th. Dave Spanfelner (DS Humphrey’s #81) – DNF
10th. Matt Stevens (Galletta’s Greenhouse #3) – DNF

Brian Galletta, Matt Stevens, Eric Woolworth, and Joe Buske try to pass Dave Spanfelner.

The 2nd feature had a lot of bumper-to-bumper and wheel-to-wheel grinding between Dave Spanfelner, Eric Woolworth, Joe Buske, Brian Galletta, and Matt Stevens

The 2nd feature had a lot of bumper-to-bumper and wheel-to-wheel grinding between Dave Spanfelner, Eric Woolworth, Joe Buske, Brian Galletta, and Matt Stevens. However, although Eric came close to getting the pass, he broke and Dave held off everyone else for his 1st career feature win. Congrats, Dave!

11/10/2012 D.S. Humphrey’s Twin-35 #1 Finish:1st. Dave Spanfelner (DS Humphrey’s #54)
2nd. Joe Buske (Brian Galletta Racing #28)
3rd. Matt Stevens (Galletta’s Greenhouse #3)
4th. Brian Galletta (Brian Galletta Racing #13)
5th. Russel Crutchley (Galletta’s Greenhouse #1)
6th. Brad Rees (Galletta’s Greenhouse #7)
7th. Adam Lytle (Adam Lytle Racing #33c))
8th. Kim Rees (Galletta’s Greenhouse #6)
9th. Clue Gilman (Galletta’s Greenhouse #9)
10th. Eric Woolworth (Woolworth #02) – DNF

And, since the Fall series is just a bonus point series to add into the All-Time points after the final race of the year, , we then go about counting the finishes straight up, with no bonus points earned for lead laps (unlike regular season and Klassic), we tally up the…
