The Hybrid Racing Yard Karts of the Galletta’s Greenhouse Karting Club fleet:

All active karts are 1-wheel-drive chassis powered by the legal Galletta’s Karting Club motor: Briggs & Stratton 5hp Flathead motors with house-legal racing mods (shaved heads, hot stocker racing cams, with heavier drivers/karts allowed a higher rated racing cam to equalize the time trials), and all are painstakingly adjusted by club founder Matt Stevens to be extremely close in top speed.

OCTOBER 2014 - TWENTY-THREE KARTS, ALL TIMING WITHIN 0.66 SECONDS OF EACH OTHER ARE AVAILABLE FOR THE 19TH RUNNING OF THE KLASSIC 200. MOST ARE UNFILLED. WHY DON'T YOU BECOME THE NEXT GALLETTA'S KARTING CLUB DRIVER AND TRY TO BECOME THE NEXT GALLETTA'S KLASSIC CHAMPION?

Many are arrive-and-drive available to rent for gas+parts money, usually $20 a regular 50-70 lap night, more for 200-Lap Klassic. Some are owned by individual drivers in the club. And some are for sale *(or rent) by their owners. The chassis have motors replaced every few years, but usually all are relatively close in speed. The difference is almost always (99 times out of 100) the driver’s experience. If an experienced driver runs it, it can often win any race it enters. If novice drivers drive them, it may not win. Pretty simple. Above picture taken before the 2014 Galletta’s Klassic 200, and many karts go unused most weekends, so join us. The Galletta’s Team karts are available most weeks to either watch or rent during race season at Galletta’s. The team karts listed are karts that have raced in many events and all have won at least one feature event in our race class. Some are owned by drivers, some are missing from action with parts unknown. Here’s more detail on each:

GALLETTA’S GREENHOUSE RACING TEAM KART ROSTER:

Karts owned, maintained, and raced at Galletta’s Greenhouse Backyard Speedway. Some are exclusive to Chris, Matt or Melissa Stevens, but the rest are available to rent on any given race day. All have won feature races and all are maintained to be competitive by undisputed all-time Oswego Karting master, Matt Stevens.

Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing Team #0: Originally an antique racing kart owned by former club driver (SBS veteran) Cameron Rowe and donated to the club by former club driver Tom Culeton in 2002 for Jesse Vivlemore to race (but he rarely raced it), it has been a quick kart since day one. Rebuilt several times by Wes Stevens. The yellow-and-orange machine has scored many wins with Matt Stevens, Chris Stevens, Kyle Reuter, Gary Miller and others, but the highlight victory was the 2010 Klassic 200 win by Kyle Reuter. Often available to rent.

Originally Chris Stevens’ ride, he won the 1999 Track Championship and Klassic using the machine. Significantly rebuilt in 2009 (as all the Galletta Karts were to reduce flips). Often available as a rental kart on most weekends, and always a fast and loose chassis.

Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing Team #3: Matt Stevens‘ oldest kart. Originally a 1980s neon green machine Manco yard kart owned by Dave Scruton and rebuilt several times in the 1990s by Wes and Matt Stevens, the #3 was painted red and yellow to look like one of Matt and Chris’ favorite Oswego Supermodifieds, the Doug Didero Skip Matczak #3 that dominated the Speedway and won 3 track championships and a Classic 200 in the mid-1990s. It is owned and driven by Matt Stevens (but was also driven by his now-wife Melissa Gabel Stevens in 2007). Has the most races, feature wins and Klassic wins of all Galletta’s karts, and Matt swears that despite it’s age, it is the best handling kart of all. His countless wins in it back him up.

 Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing Team #4: Originally a Manco yard kart purchased new for the club new the 1990s and rebuilt several times in the 1990s by Wes and Matt Stevens, the red with yellow number #4 was painted to look after one of Matt and Chris’ favorite Supermodifieds, the Doug Didero/Skip Matczak #4 (which was a clone of the #3 and only seen with that number in 1997 Oswego Classic 200) that dominated the Speedway and won 3 track championships and a Classic 200 in the mid-1990s. It has been driven by Matt Stevens, Wes Stevens and Chris Stevens, although it was occasionally rented out from time to time. Wes Stevens won the 2006 Galletta’s Greenhouse Klassic 150 and the controversial 2008 Oswego Speedway Kartway Gas Stocker Kart Classic. Wes flipped the kart and injured in the 2007 Galletta’s Klassic, and Chris resumed using it as his primary backup kart after as a rental, rookies started wrecking it too much, and finally scored a Galletta’s Klassic 200 win in it in 2017.

 Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing Team #5: Built in the year 2000, it was originally driven by Christopher Galletta Stevens, who piloted it to the 2000-2001 Klassic wins along with the 2000-2001 Galletta’s Greenhouse Track Championships right out of the gate. It has won many feature races at Galletta’s Speedway with drivers such as Chris Stevens, Kyle Reuter, Rob Jimenez, Joe Sereno, Randy Platt and Matt Stevens behind the wheel. Although it ran several races at Oswego Kartway with different drivers at the helm, it never won a race there. It was rebuilt in 2006-07 to be lower to the ground to race at Oswego Kartway and to be less prone to flipping. Often available as a backup.

 Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing Team #6: The #6 started as a built-from-scratch project for Matt Stevens to replace the #3 in 2000. In fact, it was once a maroon and black #3. But… Matt always preferred his old #3’s handling, so was re-numbered #6 and painted gold and brown (it received the much maligned golden turd moniker). It has had its share of wins through the years with different drivers, and is often available for rent on most weekends.

 Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing Team #7: The #7 started as a built-from-scratch project to make a lighter kart for a heavier driver in 2001. It was first painted silver and red to look like the Booth Racing #61 supermodified, but various drivers kept adding colors, and it later developed silver with light blue highlights. It has always been a fast kart with many different winning drivers (Tim & Justin Galletta, Ryan Coleman, Buddy Cottom, Dick & Nick Dann among others), but it’s most triumphant win came when Super Stock and Supermodified driver Kelly Miller passed both Matt Stevens and then Chris Stevens in traffic with it to a surprise win the 2013 Galletta’s Klassic 200! Often available for rent most race weekends.

Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing / Chrusher.com #8: Numbered #8 because it was the eighth Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing Team kart built (by Wes Stevens, Matt Stevens and Randy Platt), it debuted in the 2004 season, when Chris Stevens fell in love with the kart’s handling and has been it’s only driver ever since. Chris scored big “Classic” wins at Oswego Speedway and Galletta’s Speedways behind the wheel.

Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing Team #9: In 2007, Kelly Miller and Kyle Reuter brought out a black #9 kart and promptly flipped it. In fact, several drivers drove and flipped it until it was given up on and donated to the track. Wes Stevens finally rebuilt it steady enough to not flip by the 2009 season! It is a prolific winning kart, as different drivers such as Ryan Coleman (who gave it it’s current paint scheme), Jeff Tetro, Fred Collins, Russ Bartlett and Adam Lytle scored elusive wins in it. Often available for rental most weekends, it is usually set up as a longer “handicap” kart with more legroom and a higher rated race cam for taller and heavier drivers. And equalize it does!

   Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing Team #01: A former Thunder Island kart purchased from Charles Gibson in 1992 by Chris Stevens, the Black Bart #1 was often driven by Chris , although we played more musical chair races then (Wes, Matt, Jesse Vivlemore and others drove it as well). Deemed too heavy to consistently beat the #3 (although many karts have been defeated by that one), in 1996 it was stripped for parts (that became part of the #2) and sits at trackside awaiting a rebuild, as nowadays there are karts heavier that win.

Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing Team #33c: Formerly the Gary Miller racing #24, the chassis was a former Kyle Reuter yard kart that was rebuilt for Galletta’s-style racing by Dick Dann and then adapted further by Wes Stevens. Gary had two identical karts, but tried to rebuild one and scrapped it because it was so bad. Gary and his son won a handful of races in the survivor kart from 2007-2011 until Gary retired for good and sold it to Adam Lytle, who renamed it the Lytle Racing #33c and raced it from 2012-and-up. UPDATE: Adam sold the kart to Chris and Matt during the 2017 season, and it is now a Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing Team #33c rental kart.

 Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing Team #33: The “Silver Bullet #33” was built in late 2006 by Wes Stevens under the careful instructions of Matt Stevens to punish all who dared race him on either Galletta’s or Oswego Kartways. It promptly won its 1st race out of the gate before it was even painted. Matt has won MANY races in it at both Galletta’s and Oswego Speedway’s Dirt Kartway, including the Klassic 200, including the controversial 2008 Oswego Kartway Classic, which he DOMINATED and was passed by his father under a yellow flag. Matt splits most of his races between this and his trusty old #3, and is its only driver.

Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing #43: Formerly the Brian Galletta and Randy Platt rebuild of a yard kart for Brian Galletta and numbered #13. It proved to be a VERY fast kart, but rarely gets raced because Brian was forced to sell it only after a year of racing it, to Dave Turner, who renamed it to the Turner Racing #43. He then retired from racing after only a few races where a wreck unsettled him. It was sold to Matt and Chris Stevens and is now one of the Galletta’s Greenhouse Karting Club’s house karts and is often available for rent. Lots of legroom and usually a favorite rental for bigger drivers.

 Galletta’s Greenhouse / Chrusher.com #74: Otherwise known as Frankenfreakart due to the numerous rebuilds, it was once a live-axle/2-wheel-drive racing kart. Joe Hayden originally introduced the kart to our races as the Team OHV Outlaw #5 at Oswego Kartway from 2007-08 (until track operator Jim Losurdo barred our division from the Kartway), and raced it until Dick Dann purchased it from him in 2009. Dick then promptly hospitalized someone via spearing a kart at Frozen Ocean with it, then sold it to Chris. Randy Platt, Matt Stevens and Wes Stevens constantly tinkered with it until it was adapted to be race-ready at Galletta’s.

A small, but fast kart, both brothers won races behind the wheel in it.

A 100% identical clone to her then-fiancee Matt Stevens’ Galletta’s #33, but with bigger bumpers. The kart doesn’t ever seem to handle quite as good as it’s clone, but still has netted feature wins. Although–in one of her trademark baffling decisions–Melissa wanted Galletta’s Greenhouse removed from the title, it is part of the Galletta’s Team roster of house karts built and maintained by Matt Stevens.

VISITING RACING TEAM KART ROSTER:

Karts that are not owned by Galletta’s Greenhouse and instead owned by visiting drivers that are either (a) active or (b) won at least one race in Galletta’s Karting Club’s history at either Galletta’s Backyard Speedway or Oswego Kartway (at Oswego Speedway). 2018 UPDATE: The list has been updated due to a handful of karts being sold to the Galletta’s Greenhouse Karting Club and are now house karts available for rental most weekends.

Medical issues forced Russ to retire at the top of his game, where he was competing for wins any given race (no matter what “Bloata” whispered into his ear). The #00 was sold in 2011 and is probably rusting somewhere, as it is “Missing In Action/parts unknown”. 2016 UPDATE: It is currently owned by the Buskey family, and raced occasionally.

Ruggio Racing #02: Originally a yard kart rebuilt into a Galletta’s style Racing kart by Dick Dann for his son Nick, initially numbered #02, and then Dann Racing #68 from 2006-09. Sold in 2010 to Arnold “AJ” Nason and renumbered the Racin’ Nason #35, and given two beautiful paint jobs. It was then sold to Billy Ruggio #02, then sold to Billy Truax, Eric Woolworth and re-sold back to Ruggio, who rarely drives it despite it being at the track every week. Confusing, I know. This kart, possibly the most repainted/renumbered in our history, had its four owners not pick up wins in it like the 1st two owners did. UPDATE: The kart bought by a never-shows-up-to-race driver named Scott Hill and the kart was promptly was stolen out of his front yard. Nice. Real nice. This is why we don’t like to sell karts to people sight unseen and who never race even once. The kart had a rich history and if we knew the dude was never going to have the balls to show up and race, we would have bought it and kept it as a Galletta’s rental kart.

Bortel turned his poor finish and barrel-roll flippin’ struggles in 2004-05 into some impressive wins at both Galletta’s and Oswego Kartways in 2006 before he inexplicably stone cold left the sport in 2007, later selling the kart due to finances. He claims to seriously miss it, but yet never returns, and the whereabouts to this kart are unknown (probably rusting in someone’s back yard).

He also built 3 more karts for his sons Chris & Ken and friend Jason Mills. He raced in around 90% of the races during this period. Then, one day he got inexplicably mad, stormed off the track in a huff for no reasons given, and we never saw him or his team of 4 karts. Ever again. Huh.

However, when his family inexplicably got angry based on lies and exaggerations and completely false rumors about what people were allegedly saying behind their backs, they blamed us (despite us helping them compete every single week), slandered us all over to people who never met us (and blocked all attempts to clarify truth from fiction) and they and their team kart never raced anywhere ever again.

Brian and his brother Kevin Galletta have driven it since 2012, and with Brian’s retirement due to medical reasons, it is primarily Kevin’s kart.

  Galletta Bros./Platt-Num Racing #42: Brian Galletta and Randy Platt created a kart from scratch around Brian Galletta’s design of being encased in the cockpit with many metal bars. It is a VERY sturdy kart, but also very big and heavy, and has been unable to crack victory lane because of it. Despite being built to be safe, it has been involved in a handful of crazy bad accidents (most of which can be viewed on Brian’s driver profile), including a Tower bounce-and-smash, a greenhouse-busting crash, a front-stretch mishap, a fiery flip crash involving Lytle and Woolworth, and finally retired when two girls crashed so badly that both were injured, and the driver suffered a fractured vertebrae. Since the kart was involved in some of the worst crashes in our track history, it has been retired and sits idle at the track until it can be rebuilt safer.

When Dick jumped ship and abandoned us for pay track karting, he sold the kart to Tim Galletta who numbered it #54 after a significant Wes Stevens rebuild for Tim’s 6’4″ frame. Tim scored some wins until he moved south, and it was sold to D.S. Humphries owner Dave Spanfelner, who also won a few races in it. Like Dann, Dave also abruptly quit the club for pay track racing, and Brian Galletta purchased it for he and his brother Kevin to run as the Galletta Bros. #54. Known as the winning-est big man kart in the fleet. UPDATE: The kart was sold to Josh Arnold before the 2016 season, who has it often running up front and scoring wins.

Sweeting then had his significant other forbid him from racing after ONE race, so it was then sold it to Jason King, who raced it very well for a year, even winning a race after a rebuild before quitting. It was then sold to a gung-ho Chris Smith who raced it once and has it for sale.

A large, imposing tank of kart that featured a powerful OHV motor (that made many a Galletta’s Club driver very uncomfortable due to it’s size and undetermined horsepower rating), it has been unseen since 2007, when Miller retired from karting after the high-set kart took a few hard flips too many on both tracks.

An old race kart frame once owned by Kelly Miller, sold to Brian Bortel, sold to Chris Stevens, sold to Randy Platt and then completely rebuilt with a brand-new rear end, Randy sported a beautiful light and dark blue color scheme en route to a few feature wins in the vehicle. But after making babies left and right, Randy inexplicably retired himself and the kart in 2014, despite living a 1 minute drive away from Galletta’s! It sits motor-less trackside awaiting a rebuild.

There’s room on our roster and we’re always looking for good, dedicated drivers who want to have CLEAN FUN racing without the expenses, cheating and stressful cutthroat “me-1st” or “my kid 1st” mentality of most pay karting tracks, as founders Matt and Chris want people to compete with, not people to beat. That’s why we buy 20+ karts and have fun racing in our backyard with friends and family instead of just owning 1-2 and go to try and show up people at all the local pay tracks. We WANT people who can beat us and have neck-and-neck battles on a weekly basis, not dominate everyone. That’s our goal, not personal glory. If you see us with more wins and points, it’s only because we race weekly and nothing more. Experience and just being there on the track. Anybody can join, anybody can run these karts, and anyone can win with enough experience. Try it (and try it for more than 1-2 races. Most learning curves are 3-17 races, and most drivers give up after 1 or 2).
