Scott Earns Podium Finishes at Fargo National!
Longville, MN (March 6th, 2012) - The Fargo National, held at BRRP (Buffalo River Race Park) in Glyndon, Minnesota was a new stop on the Amsoil Championship SnoCross Series and for Team LaVallee, one of the most memorable race weekends yet this season. It was a two-night event, held both Friday and Saturday and even with less than desirable weather conditions Friday night, it didn’t stop race fans from coming out and
cheering on their favorite rider.
Bobby LePage (Pro) started off the Fargo Nationals with great qualifying. LePage took a 2nd and 6th in round one and round two of Pro Open. Coming in a couple points shy of going directly to the final, LePage took 3rd place in the LCQ (last chance qualifier) and entered into the Friday night final, from the back row. Off of the line of the Pro Open final, LePage started towards the back, but worked his way up and maintained his position and ended with a notable 11th place finish. On Saturday, LePage had a tough day of racing, with scoring 5th in both of his qualifying rounds, LePage went to the LCQ and ended up just 3 position shy of making into the Pro Open final due to mechanical issues with his sled.
Jake Scott (Pro Lite) had one of his strongest race weekends this season. With phenomenal qualifying rounds, Scott was able to skip the LCQ’s and go straight into the finals. First, Friday night, Scott had an awesome hole-shot off of the line where he found himself rounding the first turn towards the front of the pack. With fast lap times and consistency, Scott finished with his first podium of the season, taking 3rd place. Saturday’s final, Scott came off of the line towards the back, but lap after lap, Scott rode strong and continued to pick off one rider at a time and he earned his way to another awesome 3rd place finish!
“I am super pumped on this weekends results. Jake rode awesome and ended up taking home two 3rd place trophies. There were a couple of mechanical issues for Bobby, but all of that will get straightened out for these next two final race weekends. I am excited to have another close-to-home race, in Elk River, MN this weekend.” states Levi LaVallee (co-owner to Team LaVallee).
