Longville, MN (March 12, 2013) – The second to the last stop on the ISOC – ACS National Series was the Fargo National, held at BRRP (Buffalo River Race Park) in Glyndon, Minnesota. The snow was man-made for this National race, which made the conditions of the track constantly changing. The sugary snow and deep holes made the track rough and challenging for the riders.
Day one of the 2-day national finished overall very strong for Team LaVallee. Injured Pro Rider, Levi LaVallee made his way back onto the track and did starts throughout the weekend. Pro Rider Kyle Pallin had a couple tough qualifying rounds but was able to make it up in the Pro Open Round 13 final. Qualifying 12th and coming from the back row, Pallin came out mid-pack, rode super strong and finished an impressive 7th place. In Pro Lite #1, Jake Scott had a perfect day of racing. In round one of qualifying Scott had his work cut out for him, coming off 5th in the first corner. But with patience and fast lines, Scott made his way into first. In the Pro Lite #1 final, Scott was the number one qualifier. Off the line and into the first corner, Scott was in 3rd place. On the 5th lap of the 14-lap final, Scott rode hard and moved up to 1st place, taking home another 1st place finish.
On the second day of racing at BRRP, it was one of the best race-days yet this season for Team LaVallee. In Pro Open, Kyle Pallin had great qualifying rounds and made it in the Pro Open Round 14 Final in the front row. Off of the start of the final, Pallin came out first, snagging another Holeshot Award. In the first corner of the 18-lap final Pallin sat in the 4th place spot and was able to maintain that position the entire race. After a solid weekend of racing, Pallin currently sits in the 8th place position in the Pro Open points Championship. In the Pro Lite class, Jake Scott took first in both of his qualifying rounds and in his Pro Lite #2 Final, Scott took an early lead and continued to pull away from the rest of the pack, grabbing another win and sweeping the Fargo National. Scott has now won the last 4 Pro Lite National finals in a row (and 7 of the last 8). Scott is currently sitting in 1st place for the Pro Lite points Championship.
“This was an exciting weekend for the team. Jake continued to have great results and was able to pull off a perfect weekend. Not very many riders, including myself, can take first place in every race. I am also very proud of Kyle’s performance over the weekend. He again was strong on the starts and his 4th place finish was the highest position he has taken this season. I am looking forward to seeing what the final race in Lake Geneva brings for our team.” stated LaVallee.
