Canterbury Park in Shakopee, MN has been a favorite stop on the ACSS National tour for Team LaVallee Pro Rider, Levi LaVallee. “Its a great facility for the fans, and always a fun track for us,” says LaVallee. With a weekend filled of wet weather and icy conditions it still didn’t stop the fans from coming out and cheering on their favorite racers. “I was really looking forward to Canterbury, I had a podium in the Semi-Pro Super Stock #1 in Sandy, UT and was hoping to get on there again this weekend,” said Kafka.
Race Results: Pro Stock. Team LaVallee’s Pro Rider, Levi LaVallee, took two 3rd place finishes in his qualifying rounds, securing him a 7th place spot for the Final. Off the start Levi found himself mid-pack, with strong determination he worked his way up to the 5th position and kept himself there for the 20 lap final.
Pro Open. LaVallee’s qualifying rounds went good, but not good enough with a 6th and 2nd place finishes, Levi found himself going to the LCQ (last chance qualifier).
