October 13th, 2017 – The Galletta’s Greenhouse Go-Karting Club completed it’s 22nd season with another 200-lap Klassic. It was down between the big three drivers all season — veteran brother duo of Chris and Matt Stevens, and impressive young gun Josh Arnold. Kelly Miller returned from taking almost the entire year off (assisting his son, Steven Perez in stock car racing) to time-trial the pole, and for the 1st 150 laps it was all Kelly (until his kart broke down) and Matt Stevens (until he decided to refuel on lap 150), until Chris Stevens once again proved to be the champion of kart and fuel conservation to inherit the lead and hold off Josh and Matt en route to another Track Championship and Klassic Championship sweep! Josh Arnold also sealed his Visitor’s Track Championship with a 3rd place finish.

10/13/2017 – 22nd Annual Galletta’s Klassic Time Trial Session

Each driver is given two laps under the clock in order of total points of the season (unless driver/kart is not ready). If a driver has raced most of the season(or their lead kart has a terminal problem), they allowed to time a second kart and choose the one they wish to drive (with the fastest time in that particular kart). The best time in the kart they select to drive is taken.

10/13/2017 – 22nd Annual Galletta’s Greenhouse Go-Karting Klassic 200 Starting Lineup:

1. Kelly Miller (Galletta’s Greenhouse #9)
2. Matt Stevens (Galletta’s Greenhouse #3)
3. Josh Arnold (Arnie #93)
4. ® Robert Swan (Galletta’s Greenhouse #6)
5. Chris Stevens (GallettasGreenhouse.com/Chrusher.com/OswegoSushi.com #4)
6. ® Newbie John Parkhurst (Galletta’s Greenhouse #5)
7. Lee Gleason (Gleason #29)
8. ® Steven Perez (Galletta’s Greenhouse #7)
9. Melissa Stevens (SNF #80)
10. ® Rob Vanderhaden (Galletta’s Greenhouse #78)

® = Rookie: 1st Season w/on-track experience
Newbie = Rookie: 1st time in kart AND on track.
Note: All drivers with at least 1 career feature win are allowed to time-trial more than one kart (and choose the best time of whatever kart they elected to run — as long as it was the time in that kart) if they own it or pay for the rental. Chris Stevens’ #8 was handling poorly, and he timed his #4, which timed better and rather than hold up the show fixing the handling on the #8, he elected to race the #4. No other qualified driver chose to time a 2nd kart.

Key:  ® = Newbie / Rookie to our races (less than a season of races on our track) * = Makeup Feature Used (heat race for bonus points to earn towards a feature missed earlier in the season) T = Mid-Race Timeout Used (One allowed per newbie, three allowed per regular driver per season, additional ones earned via 100% attendance and/or regular feature wins) k = Mid-Race Kart Change Used (includes a point penalty per change) Fun (or sad?) facts about 2017 Season:

  • – Only 5 of 34 drivers attended at least HALF of the season’s races (a 14 year low).
  • – Only 4 of 34 drivers raced in every event (a 14 year low).
  • – 21 of 34 drivers were rookies (Either 1st time drivers or drivers with less than one season of races [on the Galletta’s track], another a 14 year record).
  • – Half of the regular season events were cancelled due to not enough drivers in attendence on race day (A 22 year high).
  • – Klassic was postponed three weeks due to not enough drivers committing (a 15 year record).
  • – A handful of drivers did not pay, but a few of them negotiated deals with Matt. Paying entry/kart rental doesn’t always mean money for gas + part-wear. Sometimes it includes chipping in with track/kart work, donating karts or kart parts and/or gas for the karts or track work, and/or bringing paying drivers to race and fill seats when we are low on drivers. The track and karts run on nominal BARE BONES donations and if drivers don’t pay their fair share, Matt will try and cover it, but property owner Mary Stevens covers it if he cannot (which happens every year because the donations NEVER cover costs, especially when nobody shows and/or some show and don’t pay). Maybe some people think it’s fun and games to break karts and burn gas and Matt doesn’t deserve the money, and if you fell that way then try running a track and 15-20 karts for friends/family on your own dime and get back to us, thanks.

’17 KLASSIC NOTES: 

  • – Four drivers made it to the last lap.
  • – All drivers that made it to lap 200 refueled except Chris Stevens (which essentially won him the race).
  • – Two drivers made it to the last lap on the lead lap — Chris and Matt Stevens.
  • – John Arnold and Robert Swan were penalized 1 lap and 10 points each for the Klassic change-your-kart-after-a-breakdown rule. This rule has existed since after the 2010 season, the one and only time that a driver broke one kart, changed into a second one and won a Klassic, and some drivers and while the victory stood because those were the rules and every driver could have done it, spectators in following years felt it was unfair for a driver to get a fresher kart without penalty. If one can take the fresher kart and pass everyone on track (or inherit your lucky dog lap back if everyone else broke or refueled), then they would get back on the lead lap and have a shot. It made sense to every active driver … until now, where ONE rookie apparently was offended. If one does not like this rule (and only Robert Swan protested it by NOT PAYING and even ARGUING with Matt on the phone because he broke not one but TWO karts before lap 185), it must be discussed BEFORE the race and voted upon, but it was enacted so that drivers who save their gas and save their karts for the end are rewarded while those who abuse and break karts (and the rewarded by jumping into another, “fresher” kart) are not given an advantage over those who made it to the end on one kart and one tank of gas. Regular season, it is a point penalty as we want to be inclusive and it’s hard to come from the rear in a 2nd kart in a shorter race, but a long race, so many things can happen, and with so many points (and a Championship) at stake requires sterner rules, thus postseason it is a point penalty and loss of a lap. Quite frankly, to be angry about this shows you’ve never raced anything else, because if you did, and you broke a kart and denaded the race stop for you to get a 2nd kart and go back out, they’d laugh t you and say some pretty unflattering things. Do not mistake our usual leniency (because we allow it in the regular season) as stupidity. And by not paying, no apology, and no willing to meet in the middle, you show your character. And hint: It’s one of the lesser ones in our two decade racing history. Congrats! We can and will alter the website if he ever came forth with an apology and paid off his debt, but… nobody is holding their breath.
  • – Robert Swan, Rob V, Kelly Miller, and Steven Perez did not pay and owe Matt Stevens kart repair/gas money by the end of the season. Considering the four left six broken karts between, burned gas and that Matt used his PERSONAL MONEY to cover their costs (that included Christmas money for his family), it was extremely disappointing and disrespectful to the GKC and their families. Matt did negotiate a deal with a few of them, but one (Robert Swan) refused and blamed Matt because he had 2 karts break down. They will be unable to race in further races and be marked on the website as “unpaid” until paid up. I would have disqualified them with 0 points each until paid up, but this would just simply make it harder on me when they paid up and I’d have to add in points afterwards. This incident has enacted a new rule that we used to let slide: No drivers will be allowed to start a kart until Matt is paid IN FULL from here on out.
  • – Robert Swan was penalized an additional -20 points for unsportsmanlike conduct (did not pay after using [and breaking] two karts, and argued with Matt Stevens–the head kart mechanic, track official, and all-time points and wins leader in ALL karting divisions of Oswego, NY history who THANKLESSLY will put a FAST kart under your butt that HE and ANYBODY with any skill could win a race in–over the rules, track lines, and durability of the karts).
  • – Due to the lack of drivers making it most of the year, we are now no longer scheduling weekly races UNLESS WE KNOW BEFOREHAND THAT WE HAVE ENOUGH DRIVERS. Matt had a PAINFUL year of kart and track prep with more than half of the season only 2-3 racers showing up despite saying they would, and then some people didn’t even pay for his kart and track services even when they did show up. If I were my brother, I would be MUCH more vocal against this disrespectful and actually purposefully hurtful activity. But since this is primarily my brother’s hobby, I will keep it at that. – Webmaster Chris

ALL-TIME GALLETTA’S KARTING CLUB & SPEEDWAY ALL-TIME POINT STANDINGS AFTER THE 2017 SEASON & KLASSIC

Drivers all-time stats at two of Oswego, New York’s Dirt Karting Tracks: – Our own Galletta’s Greenhouse Backyard Karting Speedway (est. 1995; counted from 2000-2017) in green, and… – the Oswego Kartway’s 1-WD Gas Division (formerly known as Oswego Speedway Dirt Track, est. 2006; counted from 2006-2008) in orange.

You can scroll the chart left, right, up and down to see all 337 different drivers on record. Of note, the Oswego Kartway deleted all references to our division after the conclusion of the 2008 season after barring our division from the program, so this website is the only way to know our points and videos on the track. Kartway’s stats are not tallied into the Galletta’s stats on the below chart:

Key: Bold = Active in last season; ® = Rookie (less than 10-17 races on track).
