Galletta’s Karting Club – 2009 Season, Week 5:
The Gas Flathead Championship Series of Oswego, NY continued on
Sunday, July 12th, 2009 at John J. Galletta Memorial Speedway:

Russ Hockey wins the 50-lap feature on 7/12/2009 at Galletta's Raceway
Russell Hockey won a 50-lapper on July 12th, 2009, his 2nd career win. Russ dominated most of the event, holding off several charges by Buddy Cottom late in the race via traffic. 8 competitors (all veterans) made for a rather quick race, with only a couple of cautions for debris and a spin. This makes for 6 different winners in 7 features so far this season at Galletta’s. All this and flower beds too, to all the flower-phobes out there, a condition I didn’t even know existed until 

recently!

7/12/2009

This particular weekend, we only had 8 drivers, but being all veterans (all between 2-14 years experience), we had only a couple of cautions in our 50-lap Feature race. Russ Hockey took the win, his 2nd of his career, and proving just how competitive our karting class is, his win makes 6 different winners in 7 features so far in 2009!
