Longville, MN (March 11, 2019) – The second to last stop for the 2018/2019 ISOC National Snocross season, Rounds 13 and 14, brought us to Sundown Mountain in Dubuque, Iowa. This is the 3rd season of having a race in Dubuque and this year brought another impressive track with a drop down start, technical downhill whoop section and big air. The change in weather conditions made the track icy and fast Friday and with rain – snow mix Saturday, the snow changed to heavy and sticky with very low visibility. The weather, however, did not stop a huge crowd from packing the stands; as they were in for some great racing over the two-day National.
PRO / PALLIN
Kyle Pallin came out swinging in Dubuque! With earning two 2nd place finishes in his qualifying rounds for Round 13 Friday night, Pallin was the 2nd qualifier coming into the Pro Final. Off of the line of the 16 Lap Final, Pallin had a great start, found smooth lines, rode consistently and earned himself his first Podium of the season, with an exciting 3rd place finish Friday Night! Congrats Kyle!
For Saturday, Round 14th – Pallin had another day of good qualifying with two 4th place finishes – he was in a good position for the Pro Final. Off of the line, Pallin had mid-pack start and with low visibility, Pallin was able to maintain his position and finish out the weekend in the 8th place spot in Dubuque.
With Pallin’s great results in Dubuque, he is now sitting in the 7th place overall position in the 2018/2019 Pro Points Standings.
