Lake Geneva, Wisconsin - was the final stop for the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series. Coming into the weekend, Levi was tied for First Place in the points race with Arctic Cat rider, Garth Kaufman. With that in mind, Levi knew coming into Saturday's events that he needed to ride his best and come out on top, and he did just that.
Saturday, Pro Super Stock Round One, Heat One, Levi came out of the gates sitting mid-pack and worked his way up the hill and came around the first corner in First place, he held of that position, taking a First in his qualifying heat. The second Heat, where both teammates TJ Gulla and Brett Bender where in the same heat as Kaufman, with high hopes of either teammate to take the top spot, Brett Bender the leader of the heat ended up crashing, allowing TJ to move into first and Kaufman ended up working his way past TJ, and finishing with a first place.
With Levi and Garth both qualifying first in their heats, the final is really what it all came down to, as they were still tied neck and neck for the points championship title. For the final, Levi ended up having a great holeshot and kept his first place spot throughout the entire 16 lap final. His teammate TJ Gulla was giving him a run for his money though, but Levi held him off for his first Win of the Season. On top of the Podium, Levi also got to claim the title of Pro Super Stock Points Champion. This is the first Championship Levi has ever won, and his hard work and determination throughout his career has certainly paid off.
Pro Open: Levi came into the last race sitting in 2nd place, just 13 points behind his teammate TJ Gulla. In his qualifying round, Levi placed 6th - which lead him to race in the LCQ to get into the final. Levi finished 1st in the LCQ, where he had to start from the back row of the Pro Open Final. Levi ended up with a 6th place finish and a 3rd place overall for the Pro Open Points Race. His Teammate TJ Gulla won the Championship in Pro Open, congrats to TJ!
Overall, has been an amazing year for Levi. He claimed the Points Championship Title, attempted the first ever double backflip and received a Silver Medal at Winter X 13. The season may be over, but Levi is already thinking of next season. We hope you are looking forward to it as well!
