Rock Maple Racing announces 11-race schedule for 2007 ATV Series

Rock Maple Racing QuadXHAMPSTEAD, NH (Jan. 22, 2007) Officials from Rock Maple Racing (RMR) have announced the completion of an 11-race schedule for the 2007 ATV racing series. The sanctioning body, now in its 15th season of snocross competition, ran its inaugural season of ATV racing in the fall of 2006.

After a successful debut there in 2006, the RMR series will open the 2007 campaign on Sunday, May 6, at the beautiful Crow Hill Motor Sports Park in Templeton, Massachusetts. Crow Hill will also host the tour on Sunday, September 9.

Round 2 will be held at a popular and rapidly-expanding motocross facility in central Maine. Hemond's MX Park, located in Minot, Maine, will roar to life with the sounds of ATV racing on May 20 and again on September 30. Hemond's has hosted numerous major motocross races the last few years.

Several new venues within New York state have come on board for 2007. Beginning with Round 3 on June 10, the series will visit Twister Valley in Fort Plain, New York. The series will venture west to Edmeston, NY, on July 15, to compete at Thunder Ridge. Both new venues offer a great track for RMR ATV series competitors.

The month of August has the tour visiting two more Empire state facilities, expanding RMR's presence in central New York. On Aug. 5, the RMR ATV series rolls into the friendly confines of Savannah MX track in Savannah, New York. And on Sunday, Aug. 26, teams will converge on the popular Thornwood MX facility in Williamstown, New York.

One of the highlights in RMR's inaugural season of ATV racing was an appearance at the immensely popular NHSA Grass Drags and Water Crossing in Fremont, New Hampshire. Every year since 1985, thousands of snowmobile enthusiasts have gathered at the famed Peterson Farm to celebrate the sport they love. Last October, those fans also got to enjoy some exciting ATV racing, as RMR hosted two separate one-day points races for the inaugural series.

Rock Maple Racing is pleased to announce their return to Fremont in 2007, with the dates set for Oct. 6-7. These races will be Rounds 10 and 11, concluding the 2007 campaign. The NHSA Grass Drags and Water Crossing is northern New England's largest gathering of snowmobile/ATV enthusiasts, and the goal is to provide fans with more high-flying action this coming October.

Teams in the RMR ATV series compete in two different divisions, MX and Utility. The MX series is for 2-wheel drive race-oriented machines, while the Utility division is for entry-level riders on 4-wheel drive or utility-based machines. RMR utilizes a separate race course for 4x4 machines where they compete in the QuadTerrain Challenge.

Rock Maple Racing's ATV series was made possible last year by the following highly-valued sponsors: Can-Am ATVs by BRP, Elka Suspension, Bickford's Sport Center in Epsom, N.H., Dasilva Motorsports, with stores in Hampstead and Moultonboro, N.H., PowerMadd, Scott Goggles, Rick's Motorsport and New England Racing Fuel. Without the support of these fine companies, this series would not have become a reality.
