Team LaVallee’s Elko Speedway ReCap
LONGVILLE, Minn., March 16, 2011 – Elko Speedway in Elko New Market, Minnesota was the seventh out of eight stops on the Amsoil Championship Snocross Series (ACSS) and with every point counting, Team LaVallee was ready to push the limits at the 2-Day event.
The Results: Team LaVallee’s newest rider, Semi-Pro Andy Lieders, had a very strong and consistent weekend. With a combination of great hole-shots and smooth passes, Lieders took 8th in his semi-pro stock final on Saturday and found himself rounding out the top five, with his awesome 5th place finish on Sunday. LePage pushed through the heated battles Saturday evening in the pro stock final, coming from the back row, LePage road hard but couldn’t quite find his rhythm and finished a notable 11th. Sunday, LePage came out swinging and continued that momentum throughout the day. In the pro open final, he came off the line towards the front and held an exciting 3rd place for 17 of the 20-lap final. With two laps to go, LePage had an unfortunate off and settled with a 9th place finish.
Coming up for Team LaVallee:
Lake Geneva, Wisconsin hosts the Grande Finale for the 2010-2011 ACSS Series, with each race counting for the points battle, it will surely be a race weekend you won’t want to miss!
