Longville, MN (December 16, 2014) – Rounds three and four of the ACS National Snocross Series brought us to BRRP (Buffalo River Race Park) in Glyndon Minnesota, just outside of Fargo, North Dakota. With a big change in the weather pattern, where temperatures went from sub-below and plenty of snow, to above average warmer temperatures and no snow in sight. In fact the only snow for miles around the Glyndon area was at BRRP racetrack. Because of the warmer temps that meant for wet and dense snow conditions on the track. Making traction for the holeshots a bit of a challenge and lines constantly changing from lap to lap. Not to mention the poor visibility if you weren’t out front, the heavy snow would stick to goggles and make it nearly impossible to see at certain times throughout the weekend.
After a successful weekend at the Duluth Snocross Opener, Team LaVallee was eager to take on the FargoNational at BRRP. Kyle Pallin was the number 2 qualifier going into the Final on Friday night, when he wentone-one in his qualifying rounds. A strong finish looked promising for Pallin in the Round 3 Final, but a hard crash caused Pallin to fall back and finish outside of the top ten. Going into Saturday, Pallin was again able to avoid the LCQ (last chance qualifier) and finish a notable 7th place in Round 4. Lieders had impressive qualifying rounds as well and rode strong, but overall wasn’t able to finish in better standings Friday or Saturday night. Scott had a very consistent weekend, rounding out Rounds three and four within the top ten of both finals.
“The Fargo National had it’s highs and lows throughout the weekend. We will learn from both areas and keep pressing on. With this break before the next race, it allows us more time to test different snow conditions and different set-ups on the sleds. I am very proud of our riders and crew, little set-backs like the challenges we had this weekend only pushes us to do better and dig deeper. Looking forward to January for rounds 5 and 6 at Canterbury Park!” – Levi LaVallee (Co-Owner/Pro Snowmobiler, Team LaVallee)
