Longville, MN (February 14, 2012) – With over a month off from the Amsoil Championship SnoCross Series, the races were back on and held indoors at the Pontiac Silverdome, in Pontiac Michigan. The ACSS crew worked day and night blowing snow for this one-day event, and their hard work and added effort paid off. The Pontiac Silverdome National was a friday night, one-day-only event where a huge crowd came from all over Michigan to watch the best snowmobile racing show out there. With LaVallee out for the season, due to his leg injury – Team LaVallee’s Pro Rider, Bobby LePage and Pro Lites Rider, Jake Scott where eager to get out on the track and back to racing the ACSS National circuit.
“Our Team has been doing a lot of testing with these weeks off and the riders have been practicing daily. We all are ready to get back to racing and what better way to do it, is to race in the iconic Pontiac Silverdome.” states Glenn Kafka (co-owner to Team LaVallee).
LePage started off the one-night event with great speed and lap-time consistency, but limited snow, meant for a small track and tight corners. LePage fought hard but through two rounds of qualifying, he found himself in the LCQ (last chance qualifier) to make it into the final. With a tough start off of the line in the LCQ, LePage was near the back and couldn’t find his rhythm, LePage ended up in 7th place in the LCQ – just 2 positions shy of making into the Pro final. Team LaVallee’s Pro Lites rider, Jake Scott rode great all day. With a 3rd in round one and a 5th in round two, Scott still needed to race in the LCQ to make it into the final. With an awesome start off of the line, Scott took a 1st place in the LCQ, putting him in the back row for the Pro Lite Final. With 15 riders on the line for the Pro Lite final, Scott found himself mid-pack off of the start but Scott took great lines, found his momentum and finished a notable 10th place on Friday night.
