Sunday, August 26th, 2018 – In our neverending mystery that has been the last two seasons (either several 1st timer rookies show and no vets, a couple of vets show and no rookies, OR nobody at all), we had two vets show up and one rookie. Due to a late start (Chris and his wife got back from work and had to do a few things before they could join the race and record–one reason why we plan on switching to Saturdays after today). Brian Galletta got some nice shots, which we uploaded as well. POINTS, VICTORY PICTURE AND EDITED VIDEOS COMING LATER THIS WEEK, but… Enjoy the unedited video here.

Kevin Galletta’s feature win puts him into a 4-way tie for most all-time wins by visitor & non-founding drivers with 8 (Kelly Miller, Adam Lytle, and Melissa Gable Stevens are the other three with 8 regular veteran feature wins). The only drivers with more feature wins are club founders Matt, Chris, and Wes Stevens–who were with it every year from the beginning (minus Wes’ semi-permanent retirement around 10 years ago). This means they have won more features than some rather surprising Galletta’s veterans, such as Kyle Reuter, Gary Miller Sr., Ed Maynes, and others who won many a feature as well throughout our club’s history.
