Pro Am class win. Returning RMR riders Luke
Marois and Brian Daigle completed the top five

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
George Layton put in another solid
performance in the Plus 35 final. The veteran
from Averill Park, NY, out-gunned David Porter

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

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

anything with two skis or two wheels.
