PSC-WE-Rock-Off-Road-9-25-13PLACERVILLE, CA: The Grand Nationals is the final event of the 2013 Professional Rock Crawling season where the East Coast drivers meet the West Coast drivers in a final shootout where only one will leave with the National Title. WERock PSC Grand Nationals will be a Saturday and Sunday event on September 28-29 in Cortez, CO; a few miles down from the recent Dirt Riot location and only minutes from Jimmy’s 4×4.  “Each year we move the location between the East and West in consideration of the drivers, and this year it is a West Coast event.  We chose the Cortez, Colorado location for its natural terrain and difficulty,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events.  “These are the top drivers from across the country and they will be putting everything on the line for this title, creating guaranteed action for spectators.”

Rock crawling starts at 2pm on Saturday through early evening, and at 10am Sunday through mid-afternoon. 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 in an area 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 Saturday and another 4 courses on Sunday, with a final shootout on Sunday afternoon 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.

Rider-Down-Logo-4-19-13Cycle Ranch and RiderDown Foundation have partnered in a fundraising effort the weekend of April 27th & 28th during the NMA Grand Nationals Qualifier and Winter Crown Series Finale.   In addition to the race action, we are teaming up with the one and only “Rhinestone Cowboy”, Kent Howerton, to host a fundraising event where proceeds will be donated to RiderDown Foundation.  Activities range from an R/C Truck and Tractor Pull Expo and Exhibition, a FMX Demonstration, a Texas-style Chili Cook Off and the Saturday Night Benefit Auction, with all kinds of goodies available including some very special autographed gear from Kent Howerton himself!  This will be an awesome event with a chance to give back to our sport and help those fellow riders when they need it most.

“I am glad to see Cycle Ranch with a new owner and new management under George Russell, the track and property is looking great. It now has a chance to become one of the best facilities in the US” says Kent.  “When I was asked to help Cycle Ranch out with a charity event, I started asking around to find out which one would be a good fit for what we wanted to do, and RiderDown always came up. It has a good reputation and mission, and I think going through them we can get some good things done. I look forward to working with them.”
