HAMPSTEAD, NH (Sept. 4, 2007) - With holiday cookouts and road trips now behind us, attention returns to motorsports as the region’s top ATV tour embarks on the second half of its 2007 schedule.

Race teams from all across the northeast will again head for north-central Massachusetts this weekend as Rock Maple Racing (RMR) prepares for Round 6 on the 10-race 2007 Can-Am Series on Sunday, Sept. 9, 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.

Fans will notice the TV cameras rolling at Crow Hill, with Sunday's event the first of three races being filmed for "Dan Egan's Wild World of Summer," which airs every Saturday at 3:30 p.m. on Boston-based TV 38. Sunday's race is also the second of three events in the Polaris Racer Challenge, a three-race mini-series offering increased purse monies for Pro-Am riders and a drawing for free entries in other classes donated by Polaris Industries.

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. Handy recorded his first RMR Pro win in Round 3 at Thunder Ridge on July 15. Other locals include Montana Jess (Westminster); Alex Parker (Brimfield); Dave and Jill Walsh (Groton); Glynn Desilva (Billerica) and Nick Reynolds (Dracut).

When the series last visited Crow Hill for Round 2 on June 24, Dave Larochelle, of St. Prosper, Que, earned his second straight Pro Open victory. Handy notched his second runner-up finish in two outings, while Connecticut native Dan Connell finished third. Jon Glynn of Oakham, MA, and Weare, New Hampshire’s Luke Marois completed the top five.

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.

Rock Maple Racing is the eastern affiliate of the World Powersports Association (WPSA), the national sanctioning body for ATV racing. The sanctioning body will embark on its 16th season of snocross racing in early December at Whaleback Mtn. In Enfield, New Hampshire.
