THE 20TH ANNUAL PRE-KLASSIC 200
"MATT STEVENS TIME TRIAL SESSION"
FRIDAY NIGHT 9/25/2015, 8:54pm - 2:00am


FRIDAY NIGHT September 25th, 2015, 8:54pm - 2:00am

Matt Stevens has an annual pre-Klassic time-trial session to make sure the karts are all fast and close. Some karts are lighter than others (this is offset during a race with heavier karts for lighter drivers and lighter drivers in heavier karts). When everything is done right, this means the most skilled, experienced, and tralented driver may have an advantage with skill, but not with karts. The karts are all very close. That's the point. We want the best driver to win, not the best (AKA most expensive) kart. They're all VERY close.

Matt goes at least 3 laps in high groove, 2 laps in low groove. If he or the timer spins or slips, he may go extra laps to get a better idea. He doesn't get slower, just testing how fast it can go on the slower groove. Track does deteriorate and times of later-timed karts may not have equal footing as karts times earlier. Matt in all karts, Chris Stevens on the stopwatch, Wes Stevens on the flags.

    Not timed.

So, there you have it. Pretty close. And every year so. When the pay tracks have equalized karts and ONE class, they can get back to us on best driver. Until then, no by default.

If you think this is all weird, who cares, and that this is just a buch of yard karts, then you probably race at a paytrack (likely a local one) where you are only concerned about your own kart or your own team, and wish your own kart(s) faster than everyone else's. Matt thinks much bigger than you do. Our whole club does. Matt wants to build and entire team of very fast and very equal karts. Where experience and talent mean the difference between good and bad. Not the kid with the parent with the most money (creepy and unfair for the kids), or the adult who put more money into his kart than the next adult (REALLY creepy and even sadder, really).

So when it comes down to it, Galletta's Kart Speedway displays driver talent better than pay kart tracks. In "YARD KARTS" like they call us (lOlz... it's okay, we call them "overpriced, overrated prefabricated cookie-cutter karts for the red neck with a little bit of expendable income but not much else and at the end of the day, nothing to show for blowing a few grand a year on a kiddie kartway... for a picture and name on the big track's site... LOLZ! ". In fact, we raced for three full seasons at the local pay track (that was built AFTER the builders SAW and RACED AT Galletta's, so... YOU'RE WELCOME). Been there and done won that. Swept track titles and Cassic 50's there. No problem. To us, it's not even a comparison. Not a big deal. To us, a feature there is like a heat to us. Too short. It's more about where you start there, not the best driver. Driver track, my ass. Pay and then herded on and off like cattle. Is that why they call it the bullshit, er bullring? Probably not, but it fits. But... if you think otherwise, come on up and try us. We will put our top ten drvers in history against the top ten in the history of the local pay track and come out on top. It's really not even a contest to us. And the #1 reason why? Arrogance of spending a few grand to race a few minutes in back of a real track and THINK that makes one a real driver. LuLz.
