Thornwood MX next stop for Can-Am RMR Series, Presented by the New England Dodge Dealers

HAMPSTEAD, NH (Aug. 20, 2007) - With the first cool nights already here in northern New England, thoughts are turning to fall chores and the upcoming winter. Yet as summer starts to draw its last breath, the local ATV racing season is just reaching half-way.

While the temperatures may be falling, on-track action heats up this weekend as officials and teams from Rock Maple Racing (RMR) prepare for Round 5 of the 10-race 2007 Can-Am series for ATVs on Sunday, Aug. 26, at Thornwood MX in Williamstown, New York.

Sunday's event is part of the four-race points series run in conjunction with the New York based Outlaw MX Series. This venture creates an exciting geographic rivalry between the invading New England teams and local riders, providing a great show for the fans.

Gates open for racers at 6 a.m., while spectator gates open at 8 a.m. Racing will begin promptly at 9 a.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 6 to 10 and children age 5 and under will be admitted free with a paying adult. Fans and racers are welcome to camp at the facility for a fee of just $10 per vehicle.

Riders looking for some on-track practice before race day may do so on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for a fee of $25 per rider. Sunday'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.

New York based riders to watch this weekend include James Stowell (Canajoharie); Freddy Kiefer (Pennellville); Jason Whiteman (Fort Plain); Corey and Trevor Hunter (Parish); Jason Rayder and Josh Tuff (West Monroe); AJ Bogino (Webster); Craig Synenki (Little Falls); Jordan Storrs (Fulton); Cody and Cole Lyndaker (Croghan) and Neal Moser (Lowville). These and several other Empire State natives will be gunning for victory in their home state.

Thornwood MX was founded in the summer of 2006 by Adam and Jeff Hopkinson. The track is .8 of a mile in length and offers a mix of sand and hard-packed surfaces. The facility offers ample room for racer and fan parking, with a challenging track layout that riders of all skill levels will enjoy. 

The track is located on Stone Hill Road behind a large white farmhouse. From the north and west, take I-81 South to Exit 35 toward Mexico and N.Y. Rte. 104. Follow Rte. 104 East until you reach Rte. 13. Take a right and follow 13 East and look for the Ball Road on your right. After turning onto Ball Rd., Stone Hill Road is your first left. From the south, take Routes 69 East and 183 North to get to Stone Hill Road.
