Vermont venue steps up to host Round 4

HAMPSTEAD, New Hampshire (Feb. 26, 2020) — That old saying about the need to make hay while the sun shines sure applies to more than just dairy farming. In winter, especially with northern New England’s ever-changing climate, you race snowmobiles when and where there’s snow.

With the loss of a points race earlier this season in central New York, officials at Rock Maple Racing (RMR) will now return to the beautiful Young Farms in West Glover, Vermont, to contest Round 4 on the six-race 2020 campaign on Saturday, Feb. 29.

Admission is $10 per day for adults, while children age 10 and under are admitted free. This weekend’s RMR Cross Country series event is presented by several fine local sponsors, including Northpoint Chrysler/Jeep/RAM, Vianor Tire & Auto Service, The Farmyard Store, Martha’s Diner, Desrochers Crane Service, Royer’s Mini Mart, Walt’s Sales & Service and The Parker Pie Company.
