Longville, MN – Team LaVallee is back at home after the first two ACSS Nationals have been wrapped up for the 09/10 Season.
Amsoil Duluth National: With the lack of snow, the Thanksgiving Weekend Annual Amsoil Duluth National was postponed until December 11-13th. This allowed more time for riding and testing for both riders. LaVallee and Kafka both had an exceptional weekend with each of them landing on the podium. LaVallee took a 1st and 4th place finish in his Pro Open qualifying rounds and carried that momentum into the final. With a late race pass, he found his way onto the podium in the 3rd place spot. In Semi Pro Super Stock 1, Kafka qualified great, with 1st and 2nd in his heat races and went into the finalholding onto a 3rd place nish.
Milwaukee Mile National: A brand new stop to the ACSS National Tour, was sure to bring curiosity and new expectations for Team LaVallee. Without racing in Milwaukee before, it was hard to know what to expect for a track. With a great weekend under their belts from the Amsoil Duluth National, Team LaVallee was hoping for the same results for this weekend. However, Kafka and LaVallee both struggled with the track and couldn’t quite pull together a podium spot. “This was a very fast and tight track and I just struggled with it. says LaVallee. “We have a little bit of a break now, so both Chris and myself know what things we need to work on and what we need to do to come out on top at the next National in Sandy, Utah.”
