6/10/2018 – Josh Arnold wins the 23rd Annual Galletta’s Karting Season Opener [+YouTube]

Sunday, June 10th, 2018 – Well, our 23rd Season Opener at Galletta’s Greenhouse Backyard Speedway saw Josh Arnold continue his impressive ways of the last three years (two time defending Visitor’s Points Champion) and won (driving his father-in-law’s #29; his #93 was still in need of repairs for breaking during last year’s Klassic 200). Josh again is looking like the top visiting driver and also looking at being the 1st driver in our history to knock Matt and Chris out of their 1-2/2-1 perch on top the point standings for all 22 prior seasons. But it’s kind of easy for the top three drivers in the past two seasons when nobody else has the balls to show.

8/26 – 8/27/2017 – WILD crash during Saturday Night 40-Lapper AND Sunday Night 35-Lapper for a Double Show Weekend; Josh Arnold and Matt Stevens Victorious!

SATURDAY, AUGUST 26th, 2017: Several drivers (a few that raced with us before a couple of years ago) enabled us to get a show in and it wound up a good one. There was also a nasty wreck late in the feature with bodies flying. But why read my words? Go to the race’s page and watch it!

7/23/2017 – Matt Stevens & Josh Arnold Repeat as Winners of Twin 33’s! [+YouTube]

Sunday, July 23rd, 2017 – Deja-vu to opening night ’17, as Matt Stevens win a feature in the Galletta’s Greenhouse / Chrusher.com / OswegoSushi.com #74, and Josh Arnold in his Arnie Racing #93 won the other! Lots of cautions and kart breakdowns this evening, but nonetheless — as the video shows —  the racing was entertaining!

Saturday, June 17th, 2017 – Due to several setbacks (including no track vehicle), we missed the first two weekends of our usual race season. However, thanks to Brian Galletta and his Jeep, we can FINALLY get the season started. Saturday evening was the goal instead of our usual Sunday (for Father’s Day & avoiding possible showers), and TWO features were in store to make up for the two week delay. The Arnie #93 driven by owner Josh Arnold passed Mike Patak (who later went on for a WILD flip) to win the 1st Feature, while in the 2nd feature, Matt Stevens stormed into the front and never looked back in the Galletta’s Greenhouse/Chrusher.com Frankenfreak #74!

9/24/2016 – 21st Annual Galletta’s Greenhouse Karting Klassic 200

September 24, 2016 – Josh timed 3rd row and set a fast pace in the lead early in the 2016 Galletta’s 200, but mechanical problems took him out of the lead (and later, the running). However, due to his steady improvement during his 1st full season, Josh literally (and shockingly) stole the Visiting Points Championship from longtime racing vet Kelly Miller–who was in the top 3 all season with a shot at all three season titles (Visitor’s Points, Overall Points, and Klassic 200 Titles) until Miller pulled himself out of the event just before the karts lined up for these photos.

8/7/2016 – Keith Raymond and Josh Arnold Split the Twin-30s!

Sunday, August 7th, 2016, Week 9 – Did the floodgates finally open last week? Finally we got some new faces in Victory Lane, and anybody watching the races is seeing how close and intense the action is! Keith Raymond executed a precise pass on leader of 29 laps, Jason King to take the 1st feature, stealing what would have been King’s 1st career win. Then it was a 1st-time winner, Josh Arnold, leading all 30 laps of feature #2, holding off some challenges from Jason King, Keith Raymond and the Chris Stevens/Matt Stevens/Kelly Miller points leader trio en route to his 1st career feature victory (Josh did win a 2015 Fall all-rookie race, but this was his 1st regular, veteran points race win). Points will be up as soon as they are tallied, and the complete race video is posted both above and on YouTube here.

Josh’s 1st win in his #93.

On an unseasonably warm November 5th, 2015, A second all-rookie non-points show was won by rookie Josh Arnold, the new owner of the former Dick Dann #86/Tim Galletta #54/Dave Spanfelner #54/Brian Galletta #54 machine, which he purchased and repainted and re-numbered #93, ready for the 2016 season!

[This race was not recorded in the All-Time points because it was Post-Klassic, all-rookies, and we did not get everybody’s names. However, we can add it retroactively if we got everybody’s names.]
