George Russell… the last time he was happy with us….

George finished 3rd in the 2009 Galletta’s Klassic 200 behind only the winners of 13 of the first 14 Galletta’s Klassics, and won his first two features at Galletta’s in 2010 on 7/11and 9/18. However, he took a rapid turn for the worse via wrecking several times, disobeying the passing flag and passing under caution during the 2010 Galletta’s Klassic 200, then mysteriously vowing to never come back because of refuted rumors from a gossip with an axe to grind.

<- 2010 Klassic: A seemingly happy George before what he claimed to be his final race at Galletta’s for odd and angrily spouted reasons. They were documented here, much to the disbelief of everyone at Galletta’s.

Fun Facts:
George raced once in 2007, but only started to race frequently in 2009-10. He, for a few years, had been planning on building another kart and make a team with his son, Shadoe.  He never did instead wound up just driving a Team Galletta Kart.

However, after his wife Mary went ape$#!t crazy after the 2010 season after she believed false gossip of the vindictive and mentally ill Monica Gabel ( a woman who has called authorities on people for things she imagined in her mind before) over the evidence of our friendly relationship of over 3 years with them — George and Shadoe abruptly and angrily quit racing at Galletta’s!
