Scott takes a Win & LaVallee is Fan Favorite.
Longville, MN (March 20th, 2012) - Beautiful Lake Geneva, Wisconsin was the final stop on the Amsoil Championship SnoCross Series for the 2011-2012 season. With temperatures reaching into the 80’s, fans where able to attend the races in shorts and T-shirts, instead the normal winter coats and boots. Due to the weather and lack of snow, the track was shorter than normal, but fortunately enough snow was preserved to maintain a competitive track and thousands of fans come out to watch the final races of the season.
Bobby LePage (Pro) had one of his strongest weekends of the season. LePage qualified for both finals and finishing a solid 9th place on Saturday afternoon in Pro Open Round 14. Out of the two-day event, Sunday was the day that LePage really shined. In round one of qualifying LePage took a 2nd and in round two, LePage came out swinging and won his heat race. Coming into the final race of the season, LePage was the 2nd qualifier. Off of the line and up the hill of the Pro Open final, LePage got tangled up with another rider in the first corner, which ultimately caused him to be towards the back of the pack, but still managed to finish a notable 13th place.
Jake Scott (Pro Lite) coming off of his 2nd place finish at ERX the previous weekend, Scott was hoping for a first place finish. Scott had amazing qualifying both Saturday and Sunday, with 4 points each day - Scott was able to skip both LCQ’s (last chance qualifier) and go straight into the final. In Saturday’s Pro Lite #1 Final, Scott was sitting in 4th place throughout the entire final, and with one lap to go, the race was red flagged due to a rider down. The race was re-started with one lap to go, and Scott ended up with a 5th place finish. On Sunday’s Pro Lite #2 Final, Scott was 2nd off the line and held that position throughout most of the race, until the leader went off of the track and Scott slid right in to the 1st place spot. Finishing his final race of the season with an exciting 1st place finish.
“Wow, what a season! First, thanks to all of the fans for voting me Fan Favorite! I do everything I can for my fans and it’s an honor to receive this award. Congrats to Jake and Bobby on this great season and I also wanted to send out a special thanks to the Team LaVallee crew and our awesome sponsors who have supported us this year.
