One more to go.

Lake Geneva, Wisconsin - is the place to be this coming weekend. Grand Geneva Resort & Spa will be hosting the finale for the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series this weekend, March 20-22nd. With the season coming to an end, the big question keeps floating around the circuit. Who will take home the Championship title.

Let's break it down into details.

Pro Super Stock. With a case of bad luck at the last National race held in Hayward, Wisconsin - Levi didn't have the weekend he was looking for. Although he felt great riding-wise, he ended up having some unfortunate mechanical problems that caused him not to finish the stock final. Now Levi is coming into this last and final race, tied for first place with Arctic Cat rider, Garth Kaufman.

Pro Open. In the pro open class, the points are not as tight, but it is still anyone's game. Currently, Levi's teammate, TJ Gulla holds the top spot, with Levi just 13 points behind - it will make for an exciting weekend. Each race; whether it is in the qualifying heats or the final, every last spot makes a difference in the points.

“It should be an exciting weekend,” said Bob Coffin, Race Director for the International Series of Champions (ISOC). “With our scoring system, a racer has the opportunity to capture as many as 37 points in a weekend, that’s if they win both their heat race and the final. With the points so tight, one bobble or mechanical issue can ruin their chances. It puts a lot of pressure on not just the racer, but the entire crew to perform.”

Levi's Goal?
With the superstitious guy he is, he is going to try his best to leave the points race in the back of his mind and just focus on having fun. He plans to take the weekend in steps, and take things as they come. But most importantly, Levi wants to show the crowd who is really is - and wants to put on a show that the people are coming to see. So you shouldn't be surprised if Levi starts throwing out his signature tricks, whether he is winning the race or not. His goal is to ride his best and have some fun.
