Rock Maple Racing

Return to Twister Valley next stop for Can-Am RMR Series
Presented by the New England Dodge Dealers

DERRY, N.H. (Aug. 29, 2008) - After an action-packed season of competing on excellent race tracks around the northeast, the time has come to wrap up another great year of ATV racing. As the warm breezes of summer are replaced by chilly, northwesterly winds, points titles are on the line for some while others look to score their first victory.

Riders will focus on championships and trophies on Sunday, September 7, as Rock Maple Racing (RMR) waves the green flag on Round 8 of its nine-race 2008 Can-Am Series at the beautiful Twister Valley in Fort Plain, New York.

This will be final points race of the year for West series teams. East series teams will also compete and will conclude their 2008 campaign on Sunday, Sept. 14 in Monkton, Vermont. This will also mark the finals points race of the season for RMR's new Pit Bike series.

Spectator gates will open at 8 a.m., and racing will get under way promptly at 9 a.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 6 to 10, while children age 5 and under will be admitted free with a paying adult.

At the series most recent appearance at Twister Valley on May 18, Matt Pomeroy and James Stowell recorded final round wins in the Pro division. Pomeroy, of Westfield, Mass., held off Stowell and Brent Miller to claim the Pro Unlimited final, while Stowell, of Canajoharie, NY, out-dueled Pomeroy and Miller to capture the Pro Am class win.

Steffan Dager 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.

In the series’ first seven rounds of competition, former Canadian national champion Jasmin Plante, Matt Pomeroy, James Stowell, Brian Daigle, Jason Rayder and Luke Marois have all posted Pro division victories. Plante swept the season opener at Hemond’s MX Park in Minot, Maine, (May 11); as mentioned above, Pomeroy and Stowell split the finals in Rounds 2 and 3 at Twister Valley (May 18) and Crow Hill Motor Sports Park (June 1); Daigle and Rayder split the Pro finals in Round 4 at Thornwood MX (June 22); while Marois swept Rounds 5 and 7 in Canaan, N.H., (July 13) and Epping, N.H. (Aug. 10). Pomeroy also swept the Pro finals in Round 6 at New York's Thunder Ridge on July 27.

Twister Valley is located on State Highway 5S, not far from Exit 29 on the New York State Thruway (I-90). From Exit 29, turn right onto East Main St. And follow Rte. 5 South. After Main St./Rte. 5 turns slightly to the left, turn right onto Canal St. and merge with NY Rte. 80. Continue to follow NY Rte. 5S until you see Twister Valley on your left.

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.
