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.

Makeup Race / Rookie Heat – 2-in-1:

1. Lee Gleason #29 – earned 20 pts.
2. Kevin Galletta #28 – earned 12th in 50-lapper
3. Chad Crouse #1 – earned 18 pts.
4. Adam Lytle #33c – earned 13th in 50-lapper
5. Butterfield #43 – earned 16 pts.
6. Griffin Miller #2 – earned 14 pts.
7. Neil Weigand #78  – earned 12 points
8. Keith Raymond #0 – earned ??? points
9. Dan Connors #6 – earned 10 points
10. Joe Miller #9 – earned 8 points

  • UPDATE 9/11/2016: These bonus points have NOT been added into the points tally. The reasons are various, but a severe lack of time due to work is the primary one.
  • UPDATE 6/8/2017: It was determined by Klassic 200 that these bonus points have been cancelled. If time is found, they may retroactively be installed in the “All-Time” Points, or they may NEVER be added in, as the deadline for makeup points has passed. We may cancel the bonus/makeup point program ENTIRELY due to the time it takes to add up (an hour or two a week) outweighing anybody’s interest in them (minimal to none). Or, we may keep it ONLY for drivers who race season-long and miss only a few a year (which is what it was originally intended for and somehow grew into a giant headache for myself).

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.

POINTS WILL BE TALLIED AFTER THE KLASSIC 200

Work, lack of sleep, watching my daughter with my wife while planning our new home ON TOP of internet connectivity issues had put video upload to a virtual standstill during the week. Rest assured, I am trying, but it is wearing my patience EXTREMELY thin. The points also got delayed, but will be completed after the Klassic 200 and before the start of the 2017 Season.
