Longville, MN (December 2, 2014) – The much anticipated 23rd Annual AMSOIL Duluth National Snocross CJ Ramstad Memorial Cup held at Spirit Mountain in Duluth, Minnesota took place this past Thanksgiving holiday weekend. With record breaking attendance on Saturday, fans from all over the Midwest packed the outdoor and indoor viewing at Spirit Mountain. And with lower than average temps, ample amounts of snow was created to make one of the best tracks Spirit Mountain has offered. The fans and racers alike were in for a fun filled weekend of bar-to-bar snocross racing action.
The weekend started off with the Amsoil Dominator race on Friday. A bracket-style format type of racing, where each rider was judged off their laps times in seeding to see whom they would match up against in round 1. For Team LaVallee, Pro Rider, Jake Scott went the furthest ending his Friday night in the semi-final round.
Saturday and Sunday kicked off Round 1 and Round 2 of the 2014/2015 Snocross Season. Kyle Pallin, Team LaVallee’s veteran fourth-year Pro racer, had a phenomenal weekend of racing. Pallin, looking strong and very comfortable on his Mystik Lubricants, Loctite, Polaris sled and started the season off with not one, but two 2nd place podium finishes! Jake Scott, second year Pro racer, had great results throughout the weekend and made his way into both Pro Open Finals and finished a notable 8th on Sunday afternoon. Andy Lieders making his Pro Open debut had his share of success as well. Finishing strong in his heat races in Round 2 and making his way directly into the final, putting all 3 of the Team LaVallee riders the front row of the final Sunday afternoon.
“Wow, what a great way to start out the season! Our riders were ripping awesome holeshots throughout the weekend and seeing all 3 riders in the front row of the final on Sunday was great to see. Rounding out the weekend with two podium finishes was the icing on the cake. With a week off, we will use this time to continue testing and charge hard again at the upcoming Fargo National.” – Levi LaVallee (Co-Owner/Pro Snowmobiler, Team LaVallee)
