PLACERVILLE, CA: This weekend brings Professional Rock Crawling back to the most well known 4×4 rock crawling wall in the Eastern Series: just outside Dayton Tennessee at 35 Pitts Gap Road, Graysville, TN. The event is very spectator and family friendly with the professional drivers available to sign autographs and throw gifts into the crowd in midst of the competition. “We love coming to Dayton to kick off the Eastern Pro Rock Crawling Series, the crowd here is amazing and a ton of fun,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “We really appreciate everyone that comes out to cheer on the competitors. They work hard all year to put on a show, and they really bring the show to Dayton!”
Professional Rock Crawling is one of the most intricate sports in the motorsports arena. It is technical, mechanical and filled with action. The rock courses are setup on a wall where spectators can bring their chairs and be able to see multiple courses running at the same time. The two day format includes 4 courses of competition on Friday night and another 4 courses on Saturday night, with a final shootout on Saturday night which usually determines the final finishing positions! The winner will be determined by the driver that has the least amount of points at the end of the weekend, similar to golf.
There are over a dozen drivers already committed to coming to compete, some driving over 14 hours to be part of this professional series. Names that are familiar include Unlimited Drivers 2012 Series Winner Carl Shortridge and father son team of Bill and Chicky Barton; Pro Mod Drivers include last years series winner Kenny Blume along with long time competitors and crowd pleasers Josh Crowe and Danny Rohrer.
