Rock Maple Racing
Debut at Twister Valley set to kick off 2007 season for Can-Am
RMR Series, Presented by the New England Dodge Dealers

HAMPSTEAD, NH (June 4, 2007) - After heavy rains forced the cancellation of their debut at Hemond's MX in Minot, Maine, officials from Rock Maple Racing (RMR) are anxiously preparing for Round 1 of the 10-race 2007 Can-Am ATV series this Sunday, June 10, at the Twister Valley Sports Complex in Fort Plain, New York.

Spectator gates will open at 8 a.m., and racing will get under way promptly at 9 a.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 6 to 10, while children age 5 and under will be admitted free with a paying adult.

The day's program will begin with qualifying action for all classes. These qualifying races allow riders to learn quick lines around the challenging track. It all builds to an exciting climax at roughly 1 p.m. as Finals for all classes begin. Riders from around the northeast will be gunning for trophies and bragging rights, as another action-packed season gets under way.

RMR recently announced the signing of a three-race TV package for the Can-Am series in 2007. Highlights from the selected races will be shown on Dan Egan's Wild World of Summer. The network and airing schedule are to be released soon. This is an exciting opportunity for our race teams, their sponsors and the series to reach consumers across a broad geographic area.

Riders who are looking for a pre-race practice session may do so on Saturday at Twister Valley, from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. The fee is $25 per rider. This gives racers a chance to shake down their machines and prepare for the next day's competition. All tracks on the Can-Am series will offer Saturday practice sessions in 2007. Racers will also be happy to know that all tracks on the circuit will allow RMR to slightly reconfigure parts of their tracks to make them more Quad-friendly.

Operated by Fred & Linda Mang, Twister Valley is now in its fourth year of operation. For 2007, the track will once again host its popular Nightcross series starting Friday, June 15. The facility will also play host to several special events, including the newly-created Outlaw MX Series. Twister Valley will also run it's own Supercross event under the lights Saturday night, June 9, for all riders from 6-10pm. To learn more, visit them online at www.twistervalley.com.

The track is located on State Highway 5S, not far from Exit 29 on the New York State Thruway (I-90). From Exit 29, turn right onto East Main St. And follow Rte. 5 South. After Main St./Rte. 5 turns slightly to the left, turn right onto Canal St. and merge with NY Rte. 80. Continue to follow NY Rte. 5S until you see Twister Valley on your left.

The Can-Am RMR Series, presented by the New England Dodge Dealers, is preparing for what promises to be an exciting first full season. New contingency programs for 2007 will see valuable items like Sunoco Racing Fuel and Scott goggles given to eligible riders. Several of the fine associate sponsors involved with RMR are participating this year, helping racers lower costs as the season unfolds.
