Marios Sweeps Rock Maple Pro Finals
Veteran ATV racer Luke Marios put on a clinic in his home state of New Hampshire, winning both Pro division finals during Round 5 of the 2008 Can-Am Rock Maple Racing series at River’s Edge ATV Park in Canaan, NH on July 13.
Marios powered his Suzuki to victory in both the Pro Unlimited and Pro Am classes, finding the quick lines around the challenging track. Brian Daigle finished second in the Pro Am final with a strong run on his Kawasaki.
Steffan Dager added two more victories to his impressive 2008 campaign on Sunday, claiming both the A Unlimited and Plus 25 finals. Andrew Ruel earned his fifth win of the season in a hotly-contested C Unlimited final. Ruel held off David Livingston and Glynn Desilva for top honors.
Justin Chamberland also notched a pair of wins at Canaan. He out-gunned Dale Robinson and Adam Wyman to claim the Open Amateur class and held off Robinson and Curtis Gillilan to win the Production Lites final. Livingston found redemption in the 16-24 year-old class, beating Bruce Gaspardi to the line for top honors.
Colin Lancaster broke George Layton’s stranglehold on the Plus 35 class. Richard Murtaugh was the rider to beat in Junior competition at Canaan, earning three final round wins in a great effort. He finished first in both the Junior and Senior divisions of the 0-50cc class and added a victory in 70cc Modified action to complete the hat trick.
Other winners Sunday in the MX classes include Montana Jess (0-90cc Unlimited); Petra Undeborg (Women Unlimited); Alex Parker (0-90cc Modified); Tatum Hax (0-90cc Limited); and Chris Kearney (0-70cc Unlimited).
In QuadTerrain action, Nick Lima and Alex Layn both registered final round wins. Lima held off Peter Gallant to claim the 500 final, while Layn out-dueled Joey Delacruz and Devon Kariak to win the Terrain Open final.
