Galletta's & Oswego Yard Karting MySpace Club
w/ Galletta's Go-Karts Founders:
The Galletta's Go-Kart Club is the central organization for the World Championship of 1-WD Gas Flathead Karting (formerly "Gas Stockers", "Limited-Modified Racing Yard Karts", or "Super Yard Karts"). We race in an annual Points Championship in Oswego County, NY. The club was founded in 1990 by Matt and as the years have gone by, the kart counts, speeds, and competition grows every year. The club races in a series of points races at its house track - a free-of-charge backyard speedway located at Galletta's Greenhouse since 1990 and formerly the largest weekly karting class at Oswego Speedway's Dirt Kartway between 2006-08 before the track operator there angrily barred our club from competition and then mocked us. We also did the race DVDs for Oswego Kartway until our club's unwarranted banishment by the operator. Pick your race below, as each race held from mid-2005-and-up has a DVD that contains complete races (and sometimes multiple events) is available for sale. Each picture opens to the race it documents, along with a DVD of that particular race, which can be bought via paypal, in person, or via email. Only $5 per DVD. Sales of race DVDs by racer/webmaster Chris Stevens' ChrusherComix Studios help pay for videotape, blank DVDs, and the website's operation. Again, this is a free, non-profit racing club! Enjoy:
2010 Season, Event #10- Sunday, August 8th, 2010- "Snooze-U-Lose Twin-30s Night" saw Tim Galletta (in the Sid Harvey's #54 kart) and Randy Platt (in the Galletta's Greenhouse #2 kart), won the 7-kart/Twin-30-Lap Features.

2010 Season, Event #12 - Tuesday, August 24th, 2010 - After Sunday and Monday got rained out, so we had a special Tuesday 55-Lap Feature Event, 8 karts large.

Most Oswego Kartway events (all WKA classes) since 2007 are also here, so inquire. Only $5 each disc! Most discs include at least two or more hours of action, two angles of the complete races (our exclusive racetower and center track angle), stereo surround sound, occasional music scores, fantastic close racing, incredible flips and crashes. Can be shipped anywhere in the world (shipping varies) or free local pickup in the local area. Each disc is only $6 each ($5 each if you are renting a Galletta's kart in an event and pre-pay the day-of the race). With PayPal, you can buy any of them instantly!
NOTE: Events at Oswego Kartway - recorded between 2007-2008 before the operator barred us over a personal grudge - also included other classes including methanol flat karts powered by WKA Raptor engines and Champ Karts powered by WKA Animal engines, even the occasional open class/2-cycle vs. 4-cycle. We were happy to provide everybody at the track with weekly $5 DVDs of the races, but the track operator barred our team, which was not just our Galletta-type 1-WD Flathead karts, but also included two camera operators and a DVD producer. We are sorry, but to those that race there: probably better to race elsewhere where the operator does not have fights with his customers and does not raise fees every single year.
