Jason “The Hammer” Mills was the fastest kart on the track, and dominated the entire race… er… ALMOST. But then a long came that crafty, pesky, persistent lil’ Matt!

2006 Race #1; Sunday, June 11th, 2006:  The opening race saw Jason Mills dominate the majority of the race in the rental Galletta’s #0, scoring either 1st or 2nd place for all but the first five laps. However, continuing tradition, Matt Stevens still managed to score the win. Still, Jason was clearly faster at race end and all over the #3’s back bumper, still scored more “lap led” points and holds a slim lead in the points standings. The only logical explanation for Matt winning was Jason attempting to help out Ed Meynes in his #43, but his plan backfired when Ed, leading at the time, almost wrecked himself and lost three positions. The top four positions battled back and forth all night, and any of them could have won it minus a mistake or two each, but Matt needled out a close victory, as he so often has in his Galletta’s #3.

Other notes: Barrelin’ Brian Bortel flipped again, on top of Chris “Chrusher Comix” Stevens who still managed to recover for fourth. Also, a controversy ensued over the counted laps, as the race was shortened from 50 laps to 40 laps due to a wet track, a late start time, and school kids needing to get to bed. Ed Meynes, confused over this, raised his hand on lap 39 believing it to be the checker, and was passed by Chris and Wes Stevens on the final lap. He was allowed, via the courtesy of Chris and Wes, his probable third place position, though he technically finished fifth on the track. This is the final warning to all the drivers that the race ends when you see the checker then the yellow and not before. Next week, race will start in daylight, guaranteed.
