Rock Maple Racing

Season finale in Monkton, VT next up for Can-Am RMR Series
Presented by the New England Dodge Dealers

DERRY, N.H. (Sept. 8, 2008) - All summer long, ATV racers around the northeast have done their best to record wins and podium finishes in their respective divisions. They've battled wheel-to-wheel on some of the area's best tracks, and now it's time to determine this year's champions at an exciting new race site.

Teams and officials are anxious for a trip to Vermont’s scenic Addison County, as Rock Maple Racing (RMR) prepares for its 2008 Can-Am Series season finale Sunday, September 14, on the Mountain Road in Bristol.

RMR's Quad-X season finale is presented by the Monkton Volunteer Fire Department (MVFD) as part of their Third Annual Snowmobile Grass Drags. Vermont is not only the most beautiful place on the planet to be in mid September, it's also a hotbed for ATV enthusiasts.

Spectator gates open at 8 a.m., with racing getting under way promptly at 9 a.m. Admission is $10 for adults, while children age 12 and under will be admitted free with a paying adult.

For those who may not have attended a Can-Am Series event before, here is what to expect. The day's program will begin with qualifying action for all classes. These qualifying races allow riders to learn quick lines around the challenging track. It all builds to an exciting climax at roughly 1 p.m. as finals for all classes begin.

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.

Bristol borders the town of Monkton to the south and is easy to access from several major highways. The Mountain Road is off the Monkton Road which is accessible from Vermont Rte. 116. Most fans will utilize either Vermont’s scenic Rte. 100 or Rte. 125 to get to Bristol. Like any trip to the Green Mountain State, all roads are filled with scenic vistas and waves from friendly natives.

Monkton's annual Grass Drags are a key fund raiser for the department. In 2007, the department responded to over 55 calls ranging from structure and chimney fires to automobile accidents. Constantly working to ensure they can provide the best service to area residents, the MVFD conducted over 1,000 hours of education and development in 2007. The dedicated members of the MVFD invite all ATV enthusiasts to Bristol in support of their services.

In the series' first eight rounds of competition, six riders have posted Pro division victories. Jasmin Plante, Matt Pomeroy, James Stowell, Brian Daigle, Jason Rayder and Luke Marois have all registered wins in 2008 and will look to close out the seasons on top of the podium in western Vermont.

Rock Maple Racing is presented by your New England Dodge Dealers, who urge you to stop by today for a great deal on all remaining 2008 cars and trucks. For more information, visit us online at
