Scott Sweeps Deadwood National
Longville, MN (February 05, 2013)- Immediately following the Winter X Games, Team LaVallee was back on the road for the ISOC – ACSS National Series and the next stop was held in historic, Deadwood, SD. Team LaVallee came into the National down one rider, as Levi LaVallee suffered a torn lat muscle at the Winter X Games and under doctors orders was told to wait a few weeks before he is back on the track.
The Deadwood National kicked off on Friday evening, where both Kyle Pallin and Jake Scott where pumped up and ready to take on the two-day event. In the Pro Class, Kyle Pallin had a great weekend of racing. His highlights were taking 1st place in round one on Friday night and in the Pro Open Round 7 final, Pallin rode strong and sturdy taking home an awesome 6th place in finish. On Saturday Pallin’s qualifying were smooth and consistent and off of the line in the Pro Open Round 8 final, Pallin had an unfortunate off in the first turn, causing him a lap down and ending the race in 14th.
In the Pro Lite class, Jake Scott was unstoppable. Scott had great hole-shots throughout the weekend and he was able to win each of his qualifying rounds on Friday and Saturday. And when it came down to the finals, Scott did not upset. With smart riding and strong determination, Scott took home 1st place on both Friday and Saturday night, sweeping the Deadwood, SD National. And because of Scott’s great results throughout the weekend, he now sits in 1st place in the Pro Lite Points race!
“Wow, what a great weekend of racing. Hats off to our crew for making our sleds rip! Kyle had a great weekend overall, there is some room for improvement but he knows what it takes and he will be ready for Traverse City. As for Jake, he rode awesome – a perfect weekend for him. Now, he just needs to keep up the hard work and carry that momentum over to the next race.” stated LaVallee
