Higher Res Victory Pic.

 The track was vastly improved this week, but unfortunately, last week’s abuse (rocky track and broken karts) in addition to a Monday rain date led to a somewhat smaller field than usual (and two regular vets could not make it). However, that did not affect the racing action. The closest top-3 points race in Galletta’s Karting Club history continues as Kelly Miller, Matt Stevens and Chris Stevens were again 1-2-3 in the opposite order of the points going into the week and put on a clinic of incredible racing for the lead. This time, Kelly joins Chris and Matt with three wins this season and may have taken the lead of the points (come back soon for updates). Includes bonus YouTube footage of Oswego Speedway Supermodifieds from Saturday, August 20th, 2016! More info: Higher resolution Victory picture | YouTube Video | Race page.

Keith Raymond flipped the #0 after a few karts in front of him slowed and checked up.

The top three in points again got to the top three in the race…

…but this time 1-2-3 was inverted 3-2-1, with Kelly raking in many bonus points. This helps Miller leapfrog from 3rd back into 1st in the standings. It is that close folks. Closest top-3 points race in our 21 year history!

BONUS COVERAGE: Supermodifieds at Oswego Speedway!

As many who know us know, Matt and Chris Stevens started racing pedal karts as kids and go-karts in their late teens years ago. Why? Because we LOVED Oswego Speedway Supermodifieds. We based a lot of our racing on Oswego Supers. We don’t go nearly as much as we used to (we used to go to every race for many years both when we were kids and again in our twenties and thirties), but occasionally we’ll take in a regular season race and haven’t missed a Classic 200 in over 20 years.
