Pomeroy, Stowell Split Pro Finals at Twister Valley for Can-Am RMR Series
Presented by the New England Dodge Dealers

FORT PLAIN, NY (May 19, 2008) - Veteran ATV racers Matt Pomeroy and James Stowell recorded final round wins in the pro division Sunday afternoon, as Rock Maple Racing (RMR) completed Round 2 on the 11-race 2008 Can-Am Series schedule at the Twister Valley Sports Complex.

Pomeroy, of Westfield, Mass., held off Stowell and Brent Miller to claim the Pro Unlimited final, while Stowell, of Canajoharie, NY, out-dueled Pomeroy and Miller to capture the Pro Am class win. Returning RMR riders Luke Marois and Brian Daigle completed the top five in Pro Unlimited, while Marois and Max Weaver filled out the top five in Pro Am.

In other action on the big machines Sunday, Steffan Daeger made the long haul from Hampstead, NH, worthwhile with a victory in A Unlimited. Nathan Lashway rode his Yamaha to victory in a hotly-contested B Unlimited final, holding off the hot Polaris machines of Brett Bender and Bruce Gaspardi for top honors. Snocross fans know the names Bender and Gaspardi quite well - Bender is a top contender on the national snocross scene while Gaspardi has raced with Rock Maple since he was old enough to sit on a sled.

Bender bounced back to win the final for 18-24 year olds, with Glynn Desilva and Eric White filling out the podium. Bender is one of the most exciting athletes to watch on the Semi-Pro level in national snocross competition. The son of legendary Yamaha racer Tim Bender, Brett has been around sleds since he was in diapers. His future in snocross racing is very bright.

George Layton put in another solid performance in the Plus 35 final. The veteran from Averill Park, NY, out-gunned David Porter of Boonville for top honors on his well-prepared Honda. Porter found redemption as he held off Joe Mason to win the Open Amateur final.

Dale Robinson powered his Honda to victory in a talent-filled final for Production Lites. The Sharon, VT, rider out-gunned fellow Vermont racers Curtis Gillilan and Dylan Whitmore for top honors.

Other ATV winners Sunday include Craig Synenki (Plus 25); Jordan Storrs (0-90cc Limited); Derrik Mann (0-90cc Unlimited); Ethan Lehmer (0-70cc Unlimited); Richard Murtaugh (0-50cc Senior, 0-50cc Junior & 0-70cc Modified); and Alex Parker (0-90cc Modified).

In Quad-Terrain Challenge action Sunday, Jamie Bougher's big trip from Westwood, NJ, paid dividends with a victory in the Open final. The contingent from Bristol, VT, filled out the podium, as Alex Layn and Adam Fay finished second and third respectively. Paul Calderwood and Liz Storti completed the top five in an exciting outing for the 4x4 gang.

In the new Pit-X Series for Pit Bikes, veteran snocross racer Tyler Sedlmeier claimed the Open Amateur final over JR Sierra. Sedlmeier, of Orchard Park, NY, will race just about anything with two skis or two wheels.

Rock Maple Racing would like to thank Fred and Linda Mang of Twister Valley for hosting the Can-Am RMR Series again in 2008. For full results from Sunday in all classes or to learn more, please visit our Web site at
