Longville, MN (January 7, 2019) – With the holiday break complete, the ISOC National Series was back on the road to Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minnesota. Rounds 5 and 6 took place this past Friday and Saturday and with an ample amount of snow made for this event, the track consisted of one of the longest starting lines we’ve seen this season, sweeping turns, technical rhythm sections, and big air, like Canterbury Park is always known for. The packed crowd over the two-day national was in for some high-flying, bar-to-bar racing, which ended with double podium finishes for Team LaVallee.
PRO / PALLIN
Team LaVallee’s Pro Rider, Kyle Pallin ended the weekend strong in Shakopee, after a tough start on Friday. In Round 5 / Friday night racing, Pallin secured his spot in the back row of the Round 5 Final with taking a second place in the LCQ (last chance qualifier). In the 16 lap Friday Night final, Pallin was sitting in the 10th place position when a tough off caused him to fall back and finish out the race in the 15th spot. On Saturday, Round 6 of Racing – Pallin again secured a spot in the Pro Final in the back row. Off of the line of the Round 6 Final, Pallin had his work cut out for him, but found fast lines and was picking riders off, one-by-one and went from the 15th place spot to finishing out the weekend in an impressive 7th place position.
PRO LITE / MASON
Zak Mason continued to sit out the Shakopee National, after determining his shoulder was not yet strong enough to compete at the level needed for the extreme conditions during snocross racing. Mason injured his shoulder at the Duluth Opener in November and his return to snocross this season is not yet determined at this time.
PRO LITE / DAUDT
Evan Daudt started his weekend off with a bang with a win and 3rd place in his qualifying rounds and taking a 6th place in his Pro Lite Round 5 Final Friday Night. Daudt continued his momentum Saturday, but a tough off in the Round 6 Final caused Daudt to go back to the 14th spot.
PRO LITE / PETERSON
Rookie Pro Lite Rider, Adam Peterson, had one of the best race weekends yet this season. With winning two of his four qualifying rounds, Peterson was sitting in prime spots for his Round 5 and 6 Pro Lite finals. On the line of the Friday Night Final, Peterson ripped the hole shot, came out in first and rode smooth, strong, and consistent taking home his first Pro Lite win! For Saturday, in the Round 6 Final, Peterson again had another great start off of the line and earned his second podium of the weekend taking the excellent 3rd place spot and earning a double podium weekend in Shakopee. Congrats Adam!
