Due to his work schedule as a trucker and his other racing hobby (getting into clones), Dick Dann could only race around once per month this season at Galletta’s, and to make matters worse, two of those potential race dates were rained out. Having motor problems on his #86 and #68 team karts, Dick navigated the Galletta’s #7 kart this evening, and led all 25-laps and take his 1st feature win of 2009, hence keeping his streak of at least one feature win per season since his rookie campaign in 2006. The kart is fast, and in a shocker, went unused in the prior weekend’s Galletta’s Klassic 200. The Galletta’s #7 is a handicap kart set-up for heavier drivers (lighter, longer, and a bigger race cam than the other karts), and Dick Dann again proved yet again how capable it is to win a feature in with an experienced driver behind the wheel. Matt (#6) and Chris (#2) tried out backups and found them fast, but a fairly boring, 5-kart/25-lapper that felt and looked like a heat race went to the returning Dickie! Congrats, we missed you and wished you’d race full time again! Dick became the 12th different Feature Winner out of 18 features held at Galletta’s, proving to be the most competitive season in our history, no matter what anybody says about our division compared to the others, you prove your skills with karts that are evenly matched, not with ones you just paid more for. Shows a true driver, and that’s how we do it at Galletta’s – and how we’ve done it since the 1990s! Win here, you can win anywhere, in anything. With a solid rookie class this season, next season looks even more promising than this one.
