Matt Stevens has won more races in this 30+ year old go-kart than most people have even run in any class anywhere.

Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing Team #3 is Matt Stevens‘ oldest kart. It is THE first Galletta’s Hybrid Racing kart, and is the ALL-TIME WINNINGEST KART IN HISTORY of ANY known karting division. Originally a 1980s neon green machine Manco yard kart–originally owned by one of Chris’ childhood friends 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. This kart and driver are proof that people who buy new karts every year don’t really have what it takes. This old clunky-looking racing-adapted yard kart is unrivaled in it’s rich history of victories.
