FORT PLAIN, N.Y. (Sept. 8, 2008) - Veteran
ATV racers Matt Pomeroy and Matt Porter split
the Pro finals Sunday afternoon, as Rock Maple
Racing (RMR) completed Round 8 of its nine-race
2008 Can-Am Series schedule at the beautiful
Twister Valley Sports Complex.
Alex Layn & Jamie Bougher
Pomeroy, of Westfield, Mass., powered his
Polaris to victory in the Pro Unlimited final,
with Porter settling for second and James Stowell third. Pomeroy followed Porter's Honda
across the line in Pro Am, while Brian Daigle
filled out the podium on a Kawasaki.
Steffen Dager held off Aaron Blouin for top
honors in the A Unlimited class, while Brad
Burbine out-gunned Maine's Steve Scotia and
Stephen Matiis to claim the B Unlimited final.
Andrew Ruel added another win to his impressive
resume Sunday, holding off Bruce Gaspardi and
David Livingston to win the C Unlimited final.
Justin Chamberland made the long haul from Pittsfield,
Maine, pay off with a win in the Open Amateur
final. Dale Robinson finished second while New
York native Theodore Thrane was third.
Livingston found redemption with a convincing
victory in the class for 16-24 year-olds, while
Gaspardi settled for second.
Other MX class winners Sunday include Craig Synenki (Plus 25); Wayne Chamberland (Plus 35);
Petra Lindeborg (Women Unlimited); Dale Robinson

RMR’s high-flying Pit Bikes were also in action
at Twister Valley Sunday. Rhode Island rider
Corey Spinella claimed the Pro Open final with
David Souza second. Souza bounced to defeat
Spinella in the Pro 12-inch class, while Kurt
Smigelski claimed both the Modified 12-inch and
Open Amateur class finals. The Pit Bikes added
an exciting flavor to Rock Maple's Can-Am Series
in 2008 and picked up new fans along the way.
Racing would like to thank Fred and Linda Mang
of Twister Valley for hosting the Can-Am RMR
Series again in 2008. It is a pleasure to
sanction events at their track.
Next up for the Can-Am RMR Series is the season
finale in Vermont's Addison County. Teams and
officials will converge on the Third Annual
Monkton Volunteer Fire Dept. Grass Drags on
Sunday, September 14, on the Mountain Road in
Bristol, Vermont. After a summer full of great
ATV competition, the time to crown our class
champions has arrived.
Partly cloudy skies and a crisp, fall-like
breeze greeted race teams at Twister Valley.
Steady showers left over from Tropical Storm
Hanna on Saturday night kept the dust down on
Sunday, but didn’t spoil the day’s activities.
While some towns along the eastern seaboard got
several inches of rain, Fort Plain was spared
from the deluge.
