Longville, MN (September 8, 2014) - Levi LaVallee made his Terracross Racing debut this past weekend at the 48th Annual Sno Barons’ Snowmobile Club Hay Days, in North Branch, Minnesota. LaVallee, who had just released on Saturday his retirement from snocross, was eager to get into the Polaris RZR XP 1000 and see what it was like racing against the top Terracross drivers.
The Mystik Lubricants Terracross racing circuit was on races 3 and 4 of the 2014 season. The 2-Day racing event started out really well for LaVallee, where he was able to avoid the LCQ and took 3rd place in his qualifying round. In Final #1 LaVallee started towards the back in 12th place – while being able to avoid crashes in front of him and making smart passing moves, LaVallee worked his way up to an exciting 5th place finish. While qualifying for Final #2 on Sunday, LaVallee had mechanical issues in his first round, causing him to finish in the 4th place position. LaVallee placed 1st in the LCQ and made it into the 16-driver final #2 in the back row. In the Final, LaVallee charged hard but ended up not being able to finish, due to a blown belt.
“Terracross racing was just what I had expected. Bumps, jumps, and tons of fun! It was great getting my feet wet into the sport. I learned quickly what a driver needs to do in order to get into the top spot. I had a blast racing at Hay Days and hope to do it again in the future.” - Levi LaVallee (Co-Owner/Pro Snowmobiler, Team LaVallee)
