Rock Maple Racing

Pomeroy sweeps Pro finals at Thunder Ridge for Can-Am RMR Series
Presented by 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 final.

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).

Rock Maple Racing would like to thank the entire staff at Thunder Ridge for hosting the Can-Am series again in 2008. It is a pleasure to sanction ATV competition at a track with such a rich history.

Next up on the 2008 Can-Am RMR Series schedule is our debut at the famed New England Dragway in Epping, NH, on August 10. For complete results from Thunder Ridge or to learn more, please visit us online at www.rockmaple.com.
