Longville, MN (March 17, 2015) – Grand Geneva Resort and Spa in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin (located in between the Milwaukee and Chicago area) was the host of the final Snocross races of the 2014/2015 season. Rounds 15, 16, and 17 took place on a 3-Day race weekend, kicking things off under the lights Friday night. Fans from all over the upper midwest were able to enjoy action packed racing on not only the nicest (weather-wise) weekend but also got to watch bar-to-bar snocross racing action on the largest track of the season.
At the start of the 3-day weekend, Pro rider Jake Scott, had a tough-go with a previously injured knee and toprevent any further damage, sat out the final race weekend of the season. Andy Lieders, who was suffering a pulled groin muscle rode out the last few days of racing, but was unable to race at full capacity. With Scott and Lieders on the injured list, all eyes were on Pro Rider Kyle Pallin who was battling all weekend to finish within the top 5 for year-end Pro Open points.
Pallin had awesome qualifying all weekend long, which allowed him to be in the front row of each final Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday afternoon. The highlight of the weekend was Round 17 / Day 3 of racing. Due to consistent qualifying rounds, Pallin was able to secure the 3rd place spot for Pro Open points prior to going into the Round 17 Final. As Pallin lined up for the final race of the season – he was hungry to finish strong. After a mid-pack start, Pallin continued to push the limits, set down fast lap times and work his way up to finish anexcellent 4th place! Congrats, Kyle!
“Congrats to Kyle Pallin for taking 3rd in Pro Open Points! His dedication and determination really paid off this season and I couldn’t be more proud of his work ethic and doing everything he could to achieve his goals. Hats off to all of our riders, mechanics, and sponsors who helped us this season – we couldn’t have done it without your support! It was an over all awesome season for Team LaVallee and we are already looking forward to next year. We have some big plans that lie ahead, so stay tuned!” – Levi LaVallee
