Heat 1 was a rookie-only race. Ken Lindsey Sr. won (though he was warned for passing before the green – you cannot pass until you hit the straight, and next time anybody does it, they will be scored in last place), and he was followed by Buddy Cottom, Ran Coleman, Chris Kent, and Kenny Lindsey Jr.. These guys have been racing here for the last 3 weeks an are starting to outgrow the rookie status (You outgrow it when you stay out of accidents, and every week they are getting better).

Heat 2 was won by Missy Berry! Considering that she held off fast guns Dick Dann, Matt Stevens, Wes Stevens, and Nick Dann, that is quite an accomplishment! Great job, Missy!

Heat 3 was won by announcer/DVD Producer/webmaster Chris Stevens, who went from last to 1st in 1 lap(Wahoo!)! He was followed by Mike MC Howell, Oscar Berry, and Melissa Gabel. Kyle Reuter was also scheduled to run this heat, but he was in the championship round of a basketball tournament and couldn’t make it in time. He made it in time for the feature, though!

The 15-kart Feature started off with a bang. Missy Berry led the 1st 8 laps from her pole position, but spun out with Tricky Nicky Dann. This caused a pileup that took out of the top five or so competitors, and sent Ogre flying! Here’s a clip:

Look at Ogre take to the sky! “I thought I was goin’ into space…” said lil’ Wesley!

Chris ChrusherComix Stevens took the lead by evading the pileup and was controlling the event from laps 9-18, when he hit the same pothole that broke his kart last weekend and it almost sent him off the track. This time, however, it wasn’t Matt capitalizing, but Kyle Reuter who took advantage in Chris’s own Galletta’s #5! Kyle pulled away as Chris had to deal with battling Matt and Wesley Ogre Stevens, as they were both after him. Matt even came back from an accident where Ken Lindsey Sr. and Ogre pushed him from behind. Matt still charged back for 3rd before the race was done, but Chris again held him off and Kyle couldn’t be caught tonight. He takes his 2nd Feature of 2007 and 3rd of his young career in the Galletta’s Racing Club, showing he has polished karting skills for someone of his age! Now here is the…
