DIGGING FOR GOLD IN DEADWOOD 🏁
Longville, MN (January 28, 2019) – The next stop on the ISOC National Snocross Series headed west to Historic Deadwood, South Dakota for Round 7 and 8. The races were held at Days of ‘76 Rodeo Grounds in the heart of downtown Deadwood. Fans from all over the area were in for some exciting racing. The snow conditions track-side were wet, dense, and rough which was an added challenge (on the smallest track of the season) for the riders and for their sleds.
PRO / PALLIN
Kyle Pallin was eager to get back to racing after tough results in the Shakopee race but with additional testing during the off time, Pallin was ready for Deadwood. On Friday, Pallin was looking strong throughout his qualifying rounds and sitting in a good position for the Pro Open Round 7 Final. Off of the line, Pallin had a mid-pack start but worked his way through the pack and was sitting in the 4th place position when a Red Flag stopped the 24-lap final, with 3 laps to go. With a staggered re-start, Pallin maintained his position and finished with an exciting 4th place. On Saturday for Round 8 qualifying, Pallin won one of his qualifying rounds and was again sitting in a good position for the Saturday Night Final. Off of the line, Pallin had a tough off in the first corner but with much determination and great riding, Pallin made incredible passes throughout the 24-lap final and finished in a notable 6th place.
PRO LITE / MASON
With having trouble with his shoulder and recently undergoing surgery to repair it, Zak Mason will be sitting out for the remainder of the 2018/2019 season.
PRO LITE / DAUDT
Evan Daudt was also looking for redemption from Rounds 5-6 in Shakopee. With great qualifying for Daudt throughout the weekend, he was able to make it into both of the Pro Lite Finals. On Friday Round 7 Final, Daudt came from the back row and with good passing and consistent riding, Daudt finished out that night in the 8th place spot. On Saturday for the Round 8 Final, Daudt came out strong sitting towards the front of the pack but with an unfortunate off, Daudt was pushed back to 7th place and stayed there, rounding out his weekend in Deadwood.
PRO LITE / PETERSON
Coming off of a fantastic weekend in Shakopee, Adam Peterson was ready for Deadwood. With taking good finishes in his qualifying Friday, Peterson was in the front row of the Round 7 Final, Friday night. Off the line of the 18-Lap Final, Peterson had a good start and with consistent riding, he maintained his position and ended Friday night in the notable 6th place spot. For Saturday, Round 8 racing Peterson was searching for a spot in the Pro Lite Final via the LCQ (last chance qualifier). In the LCQ, Peterson was riding hard for a top 5 spot when a hard off set Peterson back to the 8th place position, ending his weekend in Deadwood.
