Oswego Karting 6/19/2013: Dave Spanfelner and Brian Galletta take the Mid-Week Twin Features!

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19TH, 2013 – Sunday, June 16th saw a muddy track prevent the 2nd of 3 regularly-scheduled Sunday races for the 2013 season. So for the 2nd time in this young season, we ran a mid-week special rain-date event! Dave Spanfelner won the 1st Twin-30 in his DS Humphrey’s #54 storming by Adam Lytle for the lead on lap 1 and leading the whole show. Then Brian Galletta stormed by his cousin Chris and brother Kevin to take the 2nd feature, which was shortened to 24 laps  by starter Wesley “TrOgre” Stevens due to dark (despite Chris and Matt’s protest to finish the last 6). These two also won the last Twin-30s, the DS Humphrey’s 2012 Fall Finale! (Behold! Buddy the Galletta’s Greenhouse patrol cat photobombed into the pic, too! Ogie’s gotta’ be gettin’ jealous.) More pictures and points below! Read on!

Oswego Karting 6/19/2013 Mid-Week Twin Features!

Intense action on 6/19/2013. You will not find another karting dvision that will not only be more affordable, but also more competitive. Period. It does not matter what anybody on a pay track thinks, just ask the guys who race with us now and raced with us in the past. Other than a handful of disgruntled ones out of a few hundred drivers, they will all say the same thing and back me up.

Matt’s new HD helmet cam provides some great shots. But maybe he shouldn’t be sharing this footage on the DVDs/Blu-rays… maybe the other drivers would discover his secrets.
