Sunday, August 28th, 2016, Week 12 – An extremely packed, 17-kart field led to two more 1st-time winners visit Victory Lane! Pole-sitter Chad Crouse led all 25-laps of the 1st race and Pole-sitter Jason King did the same in the 2nd 25-lapper. However, that does not mean that there was no passing behind them! The racing was tight, wheel-to-wheel, bumper-to-bumper and very competitive, especially between the points leaders battling back and forth midfield, as we are running closer and closer to the 21st Annual 200-Lap Galletta’s Go-Kart Klassic, tentatively scheduled for September 24th. NOTE: Internet connectivity issues and work have blocked the YouTube video from going up today and almost prevented the page from updating as well. We will try again tomorrow.

Work, lack of sleep and internet connectivity issues have put video upload to a virtual standstill. Rest assured, I am trying, but it is wearing my patience EXTREMELY thin.

Penalties: Matt Stevens (involved in accidental spin of #78), Josh Arnold (involved in two accidental spins of #33c and #0), and Kelly Miller (involved in banzai crash-pass to #8 and some questionable/judgement call contact in cautions) were all penalized -5 points each and will be on close-watch probation. Under normal circumstances, if you make significant contact causing a wreck or crashing into a wrecked driver, you should almost always go to the rear of the field. From here on out, we will be more strict as there has been complaints files about people spinning people out and making contact to get passes or not going to the rear when involved in a wreck. The rules are on the website, and if we have to stop the race to make a judgement call, we will.
