Rock Maple Racing

Pomeroy sweeps Pro finals in Monkton for Can-Am RMR Series
Presented by the New England Dodge Dealers

BRISTOL, VT (Sept. 15, 2008) - Matt Pomeroy capped a successful 2008 ATV racing season Sunday with two more wins, sweeping the Pro finals as Rock Maple Racing (RMR) completed the final round of the Can-Am Series schedule at the annual Monkton Grass Drags.

Pomeroy, of Westfield, Mass., was consistent throughout the entire season. His first win came in Round 2 at Twister Valley, launching him into a hot streak no other rider could match. Pomeroy went on to record four more wins before Sunday's finale, bringing his season total to seven. He also swept the Pro finals at Thunder Ridge on July 27, joining Luke Marois as the only two riders to sweep two Can-Am RMR Series events this year.

Steffen Dager also enjoyed a breakthrough season on the Can-Am Series. The rider from Hampstead, N.H., held off Aaron Blouin to claim the A Unlimited final Sunday for his sixth win. Brad Burbine is another RMR regular that had momentum on his side in 2008. The young athlete from South Royalton, VT, out-gunned Maine’s Michael Gustus for top honors in B Unlimited action.

Andrew Ruel was another of the RMR veterans to hit his stride in 2008. The talented rider from Enfield, N.H., won all but one C Unlimited final this year and finished second to David Livingston in that battle. In the pits since RMR first entered ATV racing in the fall of 2006,  Ruel, of Enfield, N.H., has honed his skills to championship form. Josh Bennett and Glynn Desilva filled out the podium behind Ruel.

George Layton returned to winning form on Sunday, holding off a hard-charging Colin Lancaster to claim the Plus 35 class final. Joe Costello completed the podium on a Suzuki as Honda swept the first two positions. Vermont native Leanna Lymon piloted her Yamaha to victory in a hotly-contested Women's Unlimited final, with Massachusetts-based riders Jill Walsh and Sandra Pearson second and third respectively.

Curtis Gillilan kept the home-state theme alive with his victory in the Production Lites final. The rider from Fletcher, VT, out-dueled Justin Chamberland and Dylan Whitmore for top honors as Honda dominated the podium.

Other MX class winners on Sunday include Jake Chamberland (90cc Modified); Brittany Soucy (90cc Limited); Richard Murtaugh (70cc Modified); and CJ Clookey (50cc Junior & Senior).

In QuadTerrain action in Monkton, Chad Rheaume led an all-Vermont contingent as home-state riders claimed five of six spots in the Terrain Open final. Rheaume, of Middlebury, led Bristol's Alex Layn and Jonah Rule across the line as the Green Mountain State fans cheered.
