9/1/2012: “The “Dan Buske is an Ignorant, Irrational, Argumentative Busket Case AND a TERRIBLE Driver 50 75?! ”

Posted on September 6th, 2012 by ChrusherComix Studios

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1st, 2012: 12- Karts/50-Laps + 23 caution laps = 73 LAPS?! (23 caution laps! Did I count that right?!) - and so many cautions meant one thing... 1ST TIME ROOKIES! Not terribly unusual for newbies... except for one reeeaaaallly arrogant and loud n00b - who was involved in 8 cautions and warned 4 times about our 3-cautions-and-your-out-n00b rule we've had since 2008 - threw an angry, childish, irrational, and antagonostic temper tantrum of epic proportions when he was asked to sit after his 8th accident. The worst temper tantrum we have ever seen in our 20-year history of racing and 17-year history of racing for points. The funny thing was? Every single one of his arguments was utterly empirically refuted on video. He just didn't like sucking and took it out on us, I guess. And, according to the busket case, he has bigger balls than every racer who raced here this year and ever because he spoke up about his percieved bias that we supposedly have, even though we gave him every benefit of the doubt until he just had to leave the track so we could finish the race. And when he left... only one caution after he left the race surface. Guess he proved his point, huh? Talk about it on Facebook or view the main page!

Not terribly unusual for newbies… except for one reeeaaaallly arrogant and loud n00b – who was involved in 8 cautions and warned 4 times about our 3-cautions-and-your-out-n00b rule we’ve had since 2008 – threw an angry, childish, irrational, and antagonistic temper tantrum of epic proportions when he was asked to sit after his 8th accident.

PS- Dan “Busket Case” Buske is indefinitely barred from the property for his irrational, out-of-control, unwarranted and empirically false, hysterica-fueled temper tantrum based on ignorance of how terrible of a driver he was and complete disrespect for the agreed upon rules of our backyard speedway).

Race Results

Posted in 2012 by ChrusherComix Studios

9/1/2012 MAKE-UP (RETCON) RACE (8-Laps/8-Karts):


Retcon races are short hot-lap sessions counted as a race and designed for two functions: For rookie drivers to get some track time seasoning before entering the regular races, and for regular racers and veterans who missed an earlier race to make-up those races that they missed, and help get back into the points race without penalizing those who did race in that event. All drivers are scored in the earliest race they missed, retroactively counted as if they were in that race. Nobody should be racing exceedingly hard in these races, and almost none of the drivers are actually racing each other and they are often counted in entirely different races.

Crafty lil’ Matty-Joe did it again by methodically picking drivers off in the low groove – par for the course most weeks, which is why we suspect many people either give up or never try racing in the Galletta’s karting club. He is pretty darn tough to beat in his trusty ol’ Galletta’s Greenhouse #3… the oldest, and most win-decorated chassis on the track!

Good heat race was a battle between Adam Lytle and Chris Stevens. Chris caught him on a restart and picked up (despite being 2nd in points) only his 2nd heat win of the 2012 season! Meanwhile, a rookie named Dan Buske found a way to (1) fly off the track with nobody near him on lap one, and (2) spin out all by himself and slam the inside hub rail at a high velocity on the last lap. Normally, this isn’t really all that newsworthy, especially when 1st-time-on-track rookies are involved… but just wait.

9/1/2012: 50-LAP FEATURE (13-Karts):


One of our biggest features of the season still could not fill all of the karts. If we only had a few more drivers any given week, we could pull off a twenty kart race. In fact, we could pull one off EVERY week if drivers just simply showed up when it’s time to race. Our track – unlike others in the local area – is large enough for that karet count and more. And most weeks we have race-ready/feature-winning/arrive-and-drive karts sitting idle. Where are the drivers in a race town like Oswego? Especially considering the local racetrack is essentially done for the season minus a few fall shows. Fill up these karts and race with the longest-running and most-experienced karting class in Oswego County!

The race had a lot of drivers (GOOD!)… but two things were against us that historically make for a long, cranky evening… late start, a full moon, and a handful of drivers in their very 1st feature race at Galletta’s. If tradition says anything, some crazy things can happen when those things all line up.

  13. [NR] Dan Buske (Galletta’s Greenhouse #7) – DQ1 & DQ2

KEY:

[NR] = NEWBIE Rookie/1st Race Driver
DNF-MF = Did Not Finish via mechanical failure
DQ1 = Disqualified for violating the 1st-timer three-strikes-and-you’re-out rule in addition to repeated warnings for being directly involved in too many cautions (the cut-off according to the rules is three-strikes-and-you’re-out for 1st-timers, but was given a few mulligans via being warned three times and was directly involved with over seven cautions each) and had to park the kart for the remainder of the feature.
DQ2 = Disqualified for in angrily berating and arguing against track officials/owners/operators/veteran drivers without even one empirical point in his favor for arguing, including not exiting the property when told to on more than one occasion, saying that he has “bigger balls” than not only everybody at the track that night, but everybody who ever raced here in our seventeen+ years of racing history, and calling everybody at the track, “a bunch of retards”. Including a retired prison guard, an MMA trainer, and a couple other guys that most people probably wouldn’t say that to unless backpedaling his ass off to his ride home. 
They lose earned place and in addition have their points negated x2, and if ever seen again, may have further penalties inflicted upon him. Buch of retards? Really Buske? You probably can barely read. If your driving skills, social skills and comprehension skills that you displayed are all you got, son, pot shouldn’t be calling the kettle. And retards? Not very PC, Buske. Ladies and gentlemen, we have found the biggest whiney bitch in our track history!

Scoring: Point scoring scale is found on our scoring page in addition to our rules page, heats are bonus points, and more bonus points are awarded for each lap run in 1st place (1 point per lap) and 2nd & 3rd place (0.5 points per lap) for regular-season feature races and Klassic 200 (not for heats and Fall Bonus Races).
Starts: Regular season race starts are handicapped via inverting (a) feature wins and (b) points-per-race. 2nd of a Twin-30 start is inverted from the 1st finish, minus winners are still inverted . Klassic is started via time-trials.
