the New England Dodge Dealers
SOUTH EDMESTON, N.Y.
(July 28, 2008) - Massachusetts-based ATV
racer Matt Pomeroy demonstrated his on-track
skills in New York over the weekend, sweeping
the Pro division finals as Rock Maple Racing
(RMR) completed Round 6 on the 10-race 2008
Can-Am Series schedule Sunday afternoon at
historic Thunder Ridge.
Pomeroy, of Westfield, blasted his
Polaris machine to victory in Pro Unlimited over
New York native Preston Young and New
Hampshire-based Brian Daigle. In the Pro Am
final, Stowell followed Pomeroy across the line
with fellow Suzuki pilot Aaron Blouin third.
One of New York's most well-know
snowmobile racers also earned a pair of wins at
Thunder Ridge on Sunday. Veteran snocross rider
Brett Bender, of Colden, son of legendary ice
oval racer and now snocross super-team manager
Tim Bender, rode his Polaris to victory in the B
Unlimited and the 16-24 year-old classes.
David Livingston finished second in B
Unlimited with Brad Burbine third, while Bruce
Gaspardi and Livingston completed the podium for
the 16-24 age group. Bender is one of the
hottest riders at the Semi-Pro level in national
snocross competition, a gifted athlete with a
bright future in professional snowmobile racing.
Livingston found redemption with his
victory in the C Unlimited final, making the
trip from Bristol, Vermont seem worthwhile.
Livingston proved to be the streak-buster for
Andrew Ruel, who finished second Sunday. Glynn
Desilva rode to a solid third on his Suzuki to
fill out the podium.
New York natives fared pretty well
overall in their home state Sunday, even among
the younger riders. Jordan Storrs, of Fulton,
picked up a victory in the 0-90cc Limited final,
while Cody Lyndaker, of Croghan, picked up a win
in the 0-90cc Unlimited class. Cody's brother
Cole also rode to victory Sunday, out-gunning
Richard Murtaugh to claim the 0-70cc Modified
Murtaugh bounced back to claim the
0-50cc Senior class final over Kolton Gillilan
and Seth Reese.
Other winners Sunday at Thunder Ridge
include Justin Chamberland (Open Amateur); Dale
Robinson (Production Lites); Petra Undeborg
(Women Unlimited); Kevin Watrobski (Plus 25);
and George Layton (Plus 35).
