3 heats and a 45-lap Feature with 12 gas flathead racing go-karts were in store for today's festivities. The first 10-Lap Heat was won by Gary Miller, who was followed by Buddy Cottom, Chris Stevens, and Kevin Galletta. The second heat was a rookie/refresher heat race, which saw the returning Eddie Scruton beat out first-time rookie racers Brandon Matott and Ron Rowe. The third 10-Lap Heat went to Russell Hockey, followed by Tim Galletta. Third was a tie between Matt Stevens and his wife Melissa and 5th was Brian Galletta.

As the video shows, there was a lot of excitement and bumper-to-bumper racing, with Tim Galletta and Russ Hockey wrecking together while leading, then Gary Miller and Buddy Cottom also wrecking while leading. Inheriting the lead was Matt Stevens, who added a 5th feature victory this season to his impossible-to-match credentials that has other local karters envious and fearful to the point of hatred and mockery in the past. Though many have shiny, high-priced methanol-feuled karting machines, they just don't have the experience and patience to win a greuling ironman karting show at Galletta's.Matt trims his brother's points lead in the standings and is feeling confident heading into Klassic.

9th. Ron Rowe (Galletta's #2; ®)
10th. Gary Miller (Miller #24; DNF)
11th. Eddie Scruton (Galletta's #6; DNF)
12th. Brandon Matott (Galletta's #0; ®; DNF) Key:
® = Rookie Driver
DNF = Did Not Finish

Chris Stevens still leads the points standings over his brother (and 7-straight championship-winning) Matt, with Buddy, Russ, Melissa, and Gary following. But with the 14th-Annual 200-Lap Galletta's Championship Karting Klassic of Oswego Karting approaching, places can change drastically just by that event alone.
