The Track that inspired the Oswego Kartway... the Galletta's 2005 Season Continues...August 3rd, 2005 – Oswego, NY – In a hotly contested mid-week race, Matt Stevens (in his Galletta’s #3) collected his 3rd win of the year passing the entire 12-kart field in twelve laps. Mark Miller (in his #007) and Mike Billion (in his #57) followed with more strong performances. Tom Murray led eleven laps early (in the rented Galletta’s #7), but was then passed by a deluge of points-leaders. Ogre(in his Galletta’s #4) was running a strong 2nd place early, but attempting to pass Murray, buckled under the pressure, collecting another painful DNF. Chris Stevens (running the Galletta’s #0) had to recover from several wrecks and near-wrecks to get 4th. Adam Barlow (in the Galletta’s rental #1) escaped un-wrecked and injury-free, something that he had been unable to do with his last few attended races dating to last year. Neil Gosch (in his #44) continued his streak of win-or-bust by dropping out midway through the race. He won the only race that he finished. On a side-note Bill Hardy (in the Galletta’s #2), after bragging about his racing prowess and 174 wins in the last year of racing, oddly retired on the 1st circuit with no Kart problems. Some don’t believe him. Videotaped race.
