Vision Kia Eastern National Results.

Longville, MN (February 29, 2012) - The Vision Kia Eastern National, held in Farmington, New York was originally scheduled three weeks ago, however with the lack of snow and warm weather, the race was rescheduled for February 24th and 25th. With those extra weeks, the Amsoil Championship SnoCross Series was able to make enough snow for a competitive snocross track. Team LaVallee was eager to get back on the road, with only 4 races left of the 2011-2012 season, the team was ready to put on a show.

Bobby LePage (Pro) had an awesome weekend of racing. It all started Friday night of the two-night event, LePage finished 3rd and 2nd in his qualifying rounds, which allowed him to go straight to the final. Off of the starting line for the Pro Final, LePage ripped a great hole-shot and came around the first corner towards the front of the pack. With smooth, consistent riding LePage held great lap times during the 28-lap final and finished an exciting 4th place. Saturday night, LePage had an unfortunate off in a qualifying round but he was still able to make it into the final, by taking 2nd in the LCQ (last change qualifier). Coming from the back row, LePage rode strong and took home a notable 11th place finish Saturday night.

Jake Scott (Pro Lite) was on the same path as LePage, Scott also rode strong throughout the two-day event. Scott made it into the final on both Friday and Saturday night. But where Scott really stood out was on Friday night, qualifying 5th in round one and taking a 1st in round two, Scott went straight into the Pro Lite Final. With an awesome start, Scott rode smart and held his moment throughout the final and finished an awesome 4th place. On Saturday, Scott made his way into the Final through the LCQ and rounded out the weekend with a 10th place.

“This was one of the best race weekends Team LaVallee has had this season, both Bobby and Jake were one position away from taking a podium finish Friday night. It was great to see that hunger, we are looking forward to these last 3 races, and hoping to end the 2011-2012 season on a high note.” states Glenn Kafka (co-owner to Team LaVallee).

Michigan Pontiac Silverdome Results

Longville, MN (February 14, 2012) - With over a month off from the Amsoil Championship SnoCross Series, the races were back on and held indoors at the Pontiac Silverdome, in Pontiac Michigan. The ACSS crew worked day and night blowing snow for this one-day event, and their hard work and added effort paid off. The Pontiac Silverdome National was a friday night, one-day-only event where a huge crowd came from all over Michigan to watch the best snowmobile racing show out there. With LaVallee out for the season, due to his leg injury - Team LaVallee’s Pro Rider, Bobby LePage and Pro Lites Rider, Jake Scott where eager to get out on the track and back to racing the ACSS National circuit.

“Our Team has been doing a lot of testing with these weeks off and the riders have been practicing daily. We all are ready to get back to racing and what better way to do it, is to race in the iconic Pontiac Silverdome.” states Glenn Kafka (co-owner to Team LaVallee).

LePage started off the one-night event with great speed and lap-time consistency, but limited snow, meant for a small track and tight corners. LePage fought hard but through two rounds of qualifying, he found himself in the LCQ (last chance qualifier) to make it into the final. With a tough start off of the line in the LCQ, LePage was near the back and couldn’t find his rhythm, LePage ended up in 7th place in the LCQ - just 2 positions shy of making into the Pro final. Team LaVallee’s Pro Lites rider, Jake Scott rode great all day. With a 3rd in round one and a 5th in round two, Scott still needed to race in the LCQ to make it into the final. With an awesome start off of the line, Scott took a 1st place in the LCQ, putting him in the back row for the Pro Lite Final. With 15 riders on the line for the Pro Lite final, Scott found himself mid-pack off of the start but Scott took great lines, found his momentum and finished a notable 10th place on Friday night.

Race Results:
Pro Open (LePage) Round 1: 5th Round 2: 6th LCQ: 7th Final: ---
