In Memoriam…

In 2013, Josh sadly passed away after in a tragic car accident with three friends. Everyone at Galletta’s passes along condolences and prayers to his friends, loved ones and family, as we all enjoyed the time he spent racing with us and were saddened to hear of his untimely passing. We hope some of the race videos with him in it can bring back good memories.

However, Josh retired shortly after his feature wins, as he had only raced once since the end of the 2006 season due to low funds and unable to cover gas & parts money (the only charge at Galletta’s).
