Longville, MN (March 19, 2019) – Grand Geneva Resort and Spa, in beautiful Lake Geneva, Wisconsin was the host to the grand finale race of the 2018/2019 Snocross National Series. The track at the top of the ski hill at Grand Geneva is the biggest track of the season, with a huge up hill start, fast down hills, big air, technical rhythm sections, and a joker lane; which changed up the final races all throughout the 3-Day National. With mid to upper 30’s and sunny skies, the fans packed the stands throughout the weekend, to help us celebrate another year of racing and to cheer on a new Snocross Champion.
PRO / PALLIN
Coming straight off the podium in Dubuque, Kyle Pallin was ready for an action packed 3-day race weekend in Lake Geneva.
Pallin’s qualifying rounds throughout the weekend were awesome. He was able to skip the LCQ’s (last chance qualifier) in all of his rounds, and sat in great positions and in the front row of his respective finals.
On Friday, Pallin was in the top 5 off of the line and after a hard off, Pallin dropped back to 12th and finished out Round 15 in the 11th place position.
On Saturday, Round 16 – Pallin took a 3rd and 4th in his qualifying rounds and finished Round 16 in the excellent 6th place spot.
For the last race of the season, Round 17 – Pallin had another awesome day of qualifying and was sitting in a great spot for the Pro Final. Coming off of the line and up the first hill, Pallin was sitting within the top 3 positions. After a hard battle throughout the 11 lap final, Pallin took the joker lane at the right time, continued riding smooth and consistent and landed a 3rd place finish rounding out the weekend in Lake Geneva!
Pallin finished in the 9th place overall position in the 2018/2019 Pro Points Standings. Congratulations Kyle!
PRO LITE / DAUDT
Evan Daudt tried his luck in the Pro Class Friday Night in Lake Geneva. With no Pro Lite National Racing on Friday, Daudt signed up for the Pro Class, simply to get his feet wet and see how his speed could rank in the Pro Class. Daudt had a hard off in his qualifying round, but was still able to make it into the back row of his first Pro National Race. Daudt raced hard and finished out in the notable 12th place spot.
Racing Friday allowed more ride-time for Daudt and helped him get ready for Pro Lite racing Saturday and Sunday. In Pro Lite racing, Daudt was looking really strong throughout the Lake Geneva weekend, but with some hard off’s Daudt finished in the 11th and 15th spots in his Pro Lite Finals. In the Pro Lite overall points standings, Daudt finished in the 9th place spot. Congratulations Evan!
PRO LITE / PETERSON
For Adam Peterson, this was his first year running as a Pro Lite rider, and it sure was a season for the books. Peterson ended out his race season with an excellent 4th place finish on Saturday and 9th place on Sunday.

“Wow, it seems like the snow seasons just keep going by faster and faster. This year was another great year and although we had challenges that were thrown at us individually and has a whole, I know what got us through those times was hard work, dedication and belief. Congrats to our riders and crew on an awesome year of racing and a special thank you to our partners that continue to support us, we wouldn’t be able to compete and perform at our highest level without you all! I know Spring is coming, but we are already preparing for next winter season. Exciting times ahead!” -Levi LaVallee
