Longville, MN (September 15, 2015) – The second stop for the 2015 Terracross races landed in North Branch, Minnesota. Home to the 49th Annual, Sno Barons Hay Days. In a nut-shell, Hay Days is the “unofficial” kick off to winter. Where thousands upon thousands of snowmobile enthusiasts pack this small-town rural area (just north of the Twin Cities) and get to see everything and anything snowmobile – mixed in with a little freestyle and Terracross Racing. This was Levi LaVallee’s second consecutive year racing Terracross at Hay Days and was eager to get a little dirty and battle for a top spot in the finals.

The racing consisted of 2-days, with qualifying rounds Saturday followed by the LCQ (last chance qualifier) and finals on Sunday afternoon. LaVallee was riding the strongest we’ve seen this season, where he won his first heat race on Saturday. One the line of the first Final, LaVallee was sitting in the front row with 14 other Polaris RZR’s sitting behind him. Off of the start, LaVallee was sitting in a podium position, however a slight bump caused him to sideline one of the tires on course and pushed LaVallee back to the 10th spot. With much determination, LaVallee was able to pick off riders and finish in the 5th place position. For the second Final on Sunday, LaVallee made his way in via the LCQ. Meaning this time, LaVallee was at the very back of the pack. LaVallee rode smart, yet aggressive and was able to make clean passes and work his way up to another 5th place finish.
The final two races for the 2015 Terracross season will be held at Charlotte Motor Speedway, September 25th and 26th. Best of luck, Levi!

“Terracross is one of those sports, where you depend so much on your equipment. A mechanical error or a hard crash during a race, are all game-changers when it comes to the final rounds. I was fortunate enough to stay on all 4-wheels this past weekend and go out with a heat win and two top 5 finishes. I am super pumped on the way I drove and looking forward to the final rounds in Charlotte.” – Levi LaVallee

Team LaVallee Welcomes Pro Lite Rider, Zak Mason

Longville, MN (May 5, 2015) – Team LaVallee is excited to welcome Pro Lite rider, Zak Mason, to the Mystik Lubricants, Loctite, Polaris snocross team. Mason, 20, who hails from Gaylord, Michigan will be representing Team LaVallee in the Pro Lite class for the upcoming snocross season. Mason, who’s season was cut short last year, due to a shoulder injury was looking strong in the first few rounds of the 2014/2015 season. Mason was able to make his way to the podium a couple times and was sitting 1st in the Pro Lite championship points. Mason’s shoulder injury is now back to 100% and will dedicate his time this summer to training, riding and prepping for the upcoming snow season. Mason will join Pro Rider, Kyle Pallin (who took 3rd last year in the Pro Open class) and will train under team owner, Levi LaVallee.


“I am super pumped to be on Team LaVallee and really pumped to get my new program started! I’ve known my new teammate, Kyle Pallin, for a long time being a Michigan boy, so I think we are going to be a solid duo on and off the track! I am very blessed being given this opportunity by Team LaVallee and Polaris, now I’m just ready for snow!” – Zak Mason

“I am very excited about adding Zak to Team LaVallee! We decided to make some changes to our team by adding Zak to run the Pro Lite class and putting our Pro Open focus on Kyle Pallin. The changes we are making will allow us to focus our efforts on areas that were lacking in the past and hopefully bring even better results. I am already looking forward to this fall and seeing how the upcoming season unfolds for Team LaVallee.”  – Levi LaVallee

Pallin Takes 3rd Place Overall in Pro Points Standings

Longville, MN (March 17, 2015) – Grand Geneva Resort and Spa in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin (located in between the Milwaukee and Chicago area) was the host of the final Snocross races of the 2014/2015 season. Rounds 15, 16, and 17 took place on a 3-Day race weekend, kicking things off under the lights Friday night. Fans from all over the upper midwest were able to enjoy action packed racing on not only the nicest (weather-wise) weekend but also got to watch bar-to-bar snocross racing action on the largest track of the season.


At the start of the 3-day weekend, Pro rider Jake Scott, had a tough-go with a previously injured knee and toprevent any further damage, sat out the final race weekend of the season. Andy Lieders, who was suffering a pulled groin muscle rode out the last few days of racing, but was unable to race at full capacity. With Scott and Lieders on the injured list, all eyes were on Pro Rider Kyle Pallin who was battling all weekend to finish within the top 5 for year-end Pro Open points.

Pallin had awesome qualifying all weekend long, which allowed him to be in the front row of each final Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday afternoon. The highlight of the weekend was Round 17 / Day 3 of racing. Due to consistent qualifying rounds, Pallin was able to secure the 3rd place spot for Pro Open points prior to going into the Round 17 Final. As Pallin lined up for the final race of the season – he was hungry to finish strong. After a mid-pack start, Pallin continued to push the limits, set down fast lap times and work his way up to finish anexcellent 4th place! Congrats, Kyle!


“Congrats to Kyle Pallin for taking 3rd in Pro Open Points! His dedication and determination really paid off this season and I couldn’t be more proud of his work ethic and doing everything he could to achieve his goals. Hats off to all of our riders, mechanics, and sponsors who helped us this season – we couldn’t have done it without your support! It was an over all awesome season for Team LaVallee and we are already looking forward to next year. We have some big plans that lie ahead, so stay tuned!” – Levi LaVallee
