 photo gallettakart20070910win2_zps49f86131.jpg

On Monday, September 10th, 2007, Flyin’ Ryan Coleman swept his heat and the Buddy’s Story 40 Feature in the Kelly Miller/Galletta’s hybrid 9-Lives, holding off several charging competitors. Posing with him is giddy-as-a-schoolgirl Kyle Reuter, who was absolutely thrilled that the kart, originally designed for him, actually didn’t flip in a race let alone win one. Ogre, under the tutelage of Matt, can be thanked for the successful operation on the #9-Lives kart. Now Kelly Miller will want to race it again! This was a rain-date for the Sunday, September 9th, 2007 show, which was cancelled due to too much rain. A tentativeschedule leading up to the 12th Annual Galletta’s Go-Kart Klassic Race will be posted and discussed here. However, it’s already shot all out of whack and we will be taking suggestions onto what day we will hold the Klassic, so please join and add your input in this forum to help us decide the best date and time to race. Now enjoy the stats, pictures, and video clips from the 2007 Volume 15 DVD:

The eleven kart feature started with Buddy Cottom, Ryan Coleman, and Ken Lindsley Jr. all pulling away as Mike Howell was a tough pass for several fast guns in the back, but not quite fast enough to keep up with the leaders.

 Galletta's Go-Karts Feature 9/10/2007!
Buddy Cottom led the first 28 laps in the Galletta’s #1. Here he was closely challenged by Ryan Coleman, Matt Stevens, and Chris Stevens.

 Galletta's Go-Karts Feature 9/10/2007!
Close, clean racing with lots of slingshots and back-and-forth shuffling through traffic!

 Galletta's Go-Karts Feature 9/10/2007!
The battles went on for many laps, and lapped karts changed the outcome of the event from top to bottom. Ryan, Chris, and Matt shuffled between 2nd and 4th several times, and further back, rookie MC Howell held that wily old vet Ogre back for the entire race!

 

 Ryan Coleman wins Galletta's Go-Karts Feature 9/10/2007!
However, Buddy Cottom spun out and between laps 29-40, it was a furious battle between Ryan, Chris, Matt, and then later by Kyle Reuter. Ryan held them all off and proved that the modifications made to the Kelly-Mobile were a complete success!

Flyin' Ryan Coleman wins!

But the motor has won 2 straight races, as last week Kyle Reuter won with it on the Galletta’s #5! Chris thanks his brother Matt and Melissa Gabel for their diligent work on the track and karts during the week. “The track held up for me this week.

Ken Lindsley Sr., and Ken Lindsley Jr. won the two heats. More->
