HAMPSTEAD, NH (June 18, 2007) - With summer weather finally here across all of New England, the motorsports industry is hitting full throttle.

Race fans in northern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire looking to kick-start their season this coming weekend are in for a treat, as Rock Maple Racing (RMR) prepares for Round 2 on the 10-race 2007 Can-Am series for ATVs on Sunday, June 24, at the beautiful Crow Hill Motor Sports Park in Templeton, Massachusetts.

Gates open at 6 a.m. for racers and 8 a.m. for spectators. Racing action begins promptly at 9 a.m. Tickets are $10 per person for adults, while children age 5 and under will be admitted free. Food and beverages will be available at the track from the Templeton Lions Club. Crow Hill Motor Sports Park is located on the West Road. For easy access, take Exit 19 off Rte. 2 West and follow Rte. 202.

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 valuable points as they chase the coveted class championships.

Local riders to watch this Sunday include the riders from Stasvkelis Motorsports; John and Nick Stasvkelis and James Handy, all from Hubbardston, Massachusetts. Other locals include Montana Jess (Westminster); Alex Parker (Brimfield); Dave and Jill Walsh (Groton); Glynn Desilva (Billerica) and Nick Reynolds (Dracut).
Two weeks ago in Round 1 action at Twister Valley, Dave Larochelle, of St. Prosper, QC, piloted his Suzuki to victory in the Can-Am Pro Open final, holding off Massachusetts-based Honda riders James Handy and John Stauskelis. If Larochelle competes at Crow Hill, you can bet the home-state riders will be going all-out to keep him off the podium.

Other winners from Round 1 include Cody Lyndaker (0-90cc Unlimited); Alex Parker (0-90cc Modified); Jordan Storrs (0-90cc Limited); Ethan Pearson (0-70cc Modified and 0-50cc Senior); and CJ Clookey (0-50cc Junior). In QuadTerrain action at Twister Valley, national snowmobile grass drag champion Chris Anderson claimed the Open final, while Scott Rood (Terrain 500) and Alex Layn (Terrain 700) also posted wins.

Teams in the Can-Am RMR 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.

Tracks in the MX division are similar to those built for motocross. Tracks for the QuadTerrain series are one-quarter to one-half mile in length. From 20-foot climbs to wisely-placed obstacles, mud pits and more, each rider and machine is put to the test. RMR’s ATV tracks also have bypass areas to make the course suitable for all ages and ability levels.

Rock Maple Racing is the eastern affiliate of the World Powersports Association (WPSA), the national sanctioning body for ATV racing. For more information, please visit us at www.rockmaple.com.
