Rock Maple Racing

Marios sweeps Pro finals at Canaan for Can-Am RMR Series
Presented by the New England Dodge Dealers



CANAAN, N.H. (July 14, 2008) - Veteran ATV racer Luke Marios gets pretty serious when racing in his home state. The athlete from Weare put on a clinic Sunday, sweeping the Pro division finals as Rock Maple Racing (RMR) completed Round 5 on the 2008 Can-Am Series schedule at the River's Edge ATV Park.

Marios powered his Suzuki to victory in both the Pro Unlimited and Pro Am classes, finding the quick lines around this challenging track. Brian Daigle finished second in the Pro Am final with a strong run on his Kawasaki.

Steffan Dager added two more victories to his impressive 2008 campaign on Sunday. The rider from Hampstead, NH, claimed both the A Unlimited and Plus 25 finals, capping a strong outing in his home state. Local favorite Andrew Ruel of Enfield earned his fifth win of the season in a hotly-contested C Unlimited final. Ruel held off David Livingston and Glynn Desilva for top honors.

Justin Chamberland also notched a pair of wins at Canaan. The young athlete from Pittston, Maine, out-gunned Dale Robinson and Adam Wyman to claim the Open Amateur class, then held off Robinson and Curtis Gillilan to win the Production Lites final. Livingston found redemption in the 16-24 year-old class, beating Bruce Gaspardi to the line for top honors.

Colin Lancaster broke George Layton's stranglehold on the Plus 35 class, as the rider from Salem, MA, out-gunned the veteran from Averill Park, New York. Richard Murtaugh was the rider to beat in Junior competition at Canaan, earning three final round wins in a great effort. The young racer from Fulton, NY, won both the Junior and Senior divisions of the 0-50cc class, then added a victory in 70cc Modified action to complete the hat trick.

 Other winners Sunday in the MX classes include Montana Jess (0-90cc Unlimited); Petra Undeborg (Women Unlimited); Alex Parker (0-90cc Modified); Tatum Hax (0-90cc Limited); and Chris Kearney (0-70cc Unlimited).

 In QuadTerrain action at Canaan, Nick Lima and Alex Layn both registered final round wins. Lima, of Wakefield, Mass., held off Peter Gallant to claim the 500 final, while Layn, of Bristol, VT, out-dueled Joey Delacruz and Devon Kariak to win the Terrain Open final.

 RMR's new Pit Bike series was also in action Sunday at Canaan. Mike Lowrey and Evan Arnold both posted two wins in their respective divisions, making a loud and clear statement to their competition. Lowrey, of Northfield, NH, earned his victories in the Youth 10-inch and Youth 12-inch classes, while Arnold, of Willington, CT, ruled the Pro classes on his Kawasaki. Arnold held off David Souza and Scott Furtado to claim the Open class, then led the same pair (although in different order) across the line in Pro 12-inch. These Pit Bikes are as exciting to watch as their full-blown motocross brothers, adding more thrills to a weekend of Can-Am Series action.

 Other winners in Pit Bike competition at Canaan include Jeremiah Murphy (Pro 10-inch); Ken Lowrey (Stock 10-inch); Andrew Harman (Stock 12-inch); Dennis Gendron (Open Amateur); and Taylor Raisanen (Mod 12-inch).

Rock Maple Racing would like to thank the entire staff at the River's Edge ATV Park for hosting the Quad-X tour once again in 2008. Round 6 on the 10-race 2008 Can-Am Series schedule is set for Sunday, July 27, at the beautiful Thunder Ridge facility in South Edmeston, NY.
