Rock Maple Racing

Season finale at Thunder Ridge all that remains for Can-Am RMR Series,
Presented by the New England Dodge Dealers

DERRY, N.H. (Oct. 19, 2007) - After a summer full of intense battles on some of the finest motocross tracks in the entire northeast, the time has come to crown a champion in regional ATV racing. One rider in classes for all ages and skill levels will earn a title this Sunday, Oct. 21, as Rock Maple Racing (RMR) hosts the 10th and final round on the 2007 Can-Am Series at historic Thunder Ridge in South Edmeston, New York.

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

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 New York natives will be looking to end the season with a victory in their home state.

When the Can-Am Series last visited Thunder Ridge in mid July, James Handy held off a late charge from Jon Glynn to post his first RMR Pro victory. James Stowell made it two-for-three in a thrilling Pro-Am Unlimited final, blasting past eventual runner-up Freddy Kiefer and third place Brent Miller to make it an all-New York podium.

Neal Moser rode his Suzuki to victory in A Unlimited action, out-gunning Brian Daigle for top honors. This was Moser's second win of 2007 after capturing the Plus 25 final at Twister Valley. Nick Reynolds blasted to a win in B 91-450cc Limited action, while Brent Miller powered his way to top honors in the 16-24 Unlimited class.

Thunder Ridge is situated on what was known as the Edmonds Farm in the early 1960s. It's rich history includes competitions like Hare Scrambles in the late 1960s, when legends like Dick Mann used to dominate the races. In the early 1970s, the Three Rivers Trail Riders would host the famed Scat Cat Enduros at Thunder Ridge. Later that decade, the club hosted Trials competitions which brought a different type of rider.

The track hosted its first AMA-sanctioned motocross race in May of 1975. Since that first mud-plagued event, Thunder Ridge has hosted some of the best motocross races fans in the region have ever seen.
