Rock Maple Racing

Return to Crow Hill Motor Sports Park next stop for Can-Am RMR Series
Presented by the New England Dodge Dealers

DERRY, NH (May 30, 2008) - With summer just around the corner here in New England, powersports enthusiasts are ready to get back on their machines. The muddy conditions of spring are gone, tracks are dried out and the time to go racing has returned.

The sights and sounds of ATV racing return to north-central Massachusetts this Sunday, June 1, as Rock Maple Racing (RMR) prepares for Round 3 on the 11-race 2008 Can-Am Series schedule at the beautiful Crow Hill Motor Sports Park in Templeton.

Gates open at 8 a.m. and 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.

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.

New this year for the Can-Am series is a division between East and West points races, much like RMR does with its snocross programs. This makes it easier for teams to run for points titles without the added expense of extra travel.

Also new is the addition of a Five-round series for "Pit Bikes," which have become so popular in the last few years. There will be eight classes, broken down for Pro and Amateur riders and for 10-inch or 12-inch wheel diameter. RMR will partner with the Pit Bike Racing Association (PBRA) to bring this exciting new class into the mix.

In the series' first two rounds of competition, former Canadian national champion Jasmin Plante, Matt Pomeroy and James Stowell have all posted Pro division victories. Plante swept the season opener at Hemond’s MX Park in Minot, Maine, on May 11, while Pomeroy and Stowell split the finals in Round 2 at New York’s Twister Valley on May 18.

RMR’s Can-Am Series offers riders two separate divisions in which to compete. The popular MX division is for rear-wheel-drive, race-bred machines, while the Utility division is for entry-level riders with 4x4 or utility-style ATVs. A separate course is built at select events for 4x4 competition, known as the QuadTerrain Challenge. For specific events in your area, check out the full schedule at www.rockmaple.com.

Local riders to watch this Sunday include the riders from Stasvkelis Motorsports; John and Nick Stasvkelis and James Handy, all from Hubbardston, Massachusetts. Other locals include Montana Jess (Westminster); Alex Parker (Brimfield); Dave and Jill Walsh (Groton); Glynn Desilva (Billerica) and Nick Reynolds (Dracut).
