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.

WE-Rock-Off-Road-6-28-13PLACERVILLE, CA: The second round of the Eastern W.E. Rock Pro Rock Crawling Series will be this weekend as part of the Ultimate Motorsports Championship (UMC) at the Badlands Off Road Park in Attica, Indiana.  The three day event will include two full days of extreme rock crawling action in the quarry at the south end of the park.  “The rock quarry at the Badland park has always been a drivers favorite.  There are so many different types of terrain in one area that it challenges even the best drivers,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “We encourage those that may think that they are just coming to watch the weekends events to bring their wheeler and participate in our Sportsman Class.  It is basically a run what you brung class that isn’t so difficult that you can’t have fun and be successful.  We already have three drivers preregistered in this class: Steve Brown, Paul Figge and Chris Smith; so it should be a great time!”

Rock crawling starts at 9am on both Saturday and Sunday. There will be a slight break in the rock crawling action to allow competitors and spectators to watch the Ultra4 King of the Hammers qualifying runs around 10am on Saturday. The rock crawling event will end early afternoon to accommodate the main race later that afternoon.

Rock Events.  “This is the first time in several years that we have used BLM property.  It was with great pleasure that we can say how successful it was.  Being able to work successfully with our friends at BLM was awesome.  Special thanks to the Cedar City Field Office, Mitch Owens and others for their help in making this a successful event.”

The Trail Gear Western National Pro Series Rock Crawling second event of the season was similar to the first in the nature of a one-day event with six courses during the day and a final shootout at the end. Professional Rock Crawling is one of the most intricate sports in the motorsports arena.  It is technical, mechanical and filled with action.  This event proved all of them including a 20 foot drop during the shootout.
