A Double Podium for Pallin in Mt. Pleasant


Longville, MN (March 3, 2015) – Soaring Eagle Resort and Casino in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan hosted Rounds 13 and 14 of the 2014/2015 snocross season. After a solid weekend in New York, Team LaVallee was ready to carry that momentum into Michigan. Mt. Pleasant offered a long, technical track. The snow conditions were a sugar-type consistency which meant for soft snow making the track unpredictable as the laps went on. A challenging and high-flying track made for some of the best racing we’ve season all season.

Kyle Pallin was the one to watch over the 2-day National. Under the lights on Friday night, Pallin had qualified two-two in his qualifying rounds and made it directly into the final. While fellow teammates, Scott and Lieders were able to make it into the back row of the Round 13 final, via the LCQ (last chance qualifier). Off of the start of the 14-lap final, Pallin came out first – grabbing the holeshot and was searching for a podium finish. With strong lap-times and Pallin’s never-give-up attitude, Pallin was able to make his third podium finish in a row, taking home the 3rd place spot. Scott and Lieders were able to round out the top ten with 9th and 10th place Friday night.


For Saturday, Round 14, Lieders and Scott both sat out for racing, due to injury. Lieders, out with a pulled groin muscle and Scott with a bothered knee. Both are currently expected to be racing in Lake Geneva. With Lieders and Scott out, all eyes were on Pallin. Pallin took two 3rd place finishes in his qualifying rounds and was ready to take on the Pro Open Final. Off of the starting line, Pallin found himself within the top 3 and a little bobblecaused Pallin to go off the track and set him back to 5th place. With his work cut out for him, Pallin continued to charge his way through and put pressure on those in front. Within the final laps, two riders went down and Pallin passed his way up to the 2nd place spot. Finishing out the weekend, with double podiums.

“Huge congrats to Kyle Pallin for an awesome weekend of racing. Kyle has been putting in the extra time and it’s really been showing. It’s unfortunate that Jake and Andy weren’t able to race Saturday, but thankful their injuries aren’t any worse and hopefully this weekend off will get them set for Geneva. Hats off to our crew for another great weekend! Looking forward to the grand finale in two weeks!” – Levi LaVallee
