8/5/2011 - Friday Night Twin 30s8/5/2011 - Friday Twin-30s NightAUGUST 5th, 2011: A Special Friday Night event took place at Galletta’s Greenhouse Backyard Karting Speedway saw another 60-lap race night. Yep, that’s right, sixty 15-17 second green flag laps for one division. Jeff Tetro took the 1st feature, again holding off Matt by a nose at the stripe like he did a few weeks ago!

They battled through lapped traffic, even splitting it 3-wide more than once. And although Matt nearly got him three of four times, Jeff nipped Matt at the finish line for the closest finish of the year! As Russ Bartlett said, “Those last few laps were worth the price of admission!”

2010 Season, Event #7- Sunday, July 18th, 2010Driving the Galletta’s Greenhouse #9 kart, Jeff Tetro, won his 1st feature race at Galletta’s Greenhouse Backyard Karting Speedway, with his then-girlfriend and… just what on earth the beer-bath-giving Eric Howell and Russell Bartlett have to be in his victory photo is anybody’s guess.  But this pic is all sorts of hysterical!

Nickname:
‘Chet the Jet’

<- Jeff drove a heady race in the 15th Annual Galletta’s Karting Club 200, finishing 3rd place, his 1st Galletta’s 200-Lapper.

Fun facts:
Jeff has raced on and off since the 2007 season, but in racing regularly in 2010-and-up, the experience paid off with several good finishes and his first feature win in 2010, followed up by more wins in 2011. His strong 2010 season enabled Jeff to climb the Galletta’s Greenhouse Karting All-Time Point Standings and join the All-Time Galletta’s Karting Feature Win List.


Russell Bartlett picked up his first feature win at Galletta’s on 6/27/2010 in the Galletta’s #9 kart, which has been in Victory Lane for two straight weeks! Here he poses with — and I have no idea why, but oh well — Jeff Tetro and Jeff’s girlfriend. 12-karts, bumper-to-bumper action throughout, and we even survived a small rain shower, which made the track VERY fast!

Untimely retirement:
Jeff stopped racing oddly at the absolute height of his career during the 2011 season, when he had won two straight features — including nipping Matt Stevens at the stripe in one, a feat accomplished by very few! He claims that it was due to work, but it may have been pressure from being friends with the Russell family, who quit the club over false rumors and slander. Sad, because he was starting to get really good at finding the lead and holding it, and we love good, clean competitors at our track… but that is exactly when he just flat out stopped….
