Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing Team #1 was built from scratch in 1999 by Wes and Matt Stevens and given a slight rebuild with ideas from Buddy Cottom in 2009. The #1 has had a long history of crazy accidents with various drivers (many of which were from Brian Galletta), but also a few wins. Chris Stevens and Kyle Reuter once piloted it to impressive Klassic runs. Often available as a rental kart on most weekends. It seems as if it never can get into victory lane… unless Matt Stevens drives it, and he often uses the #1 to prove a point — that he can beat ANYBODY in what is deemed the worst vehicle on the track. And boy, it’s kind of humiliating!

 

Pictures of the #1 when it was first built in 1999… before the many accidents ruined the paint job! The kart sports a black-silver-and-purple paint job inspired by the Generation One Transformers Skywarp.. although it can barely be made out anymore.
