RENO, NV – Roger Norman took the Pro Modified Win in the Torchmate Racing Pro Mod #8 rock crawler at only his second appearance in the W.E. Rock Western Pro Nationals. “I felt better having the one competition under my belt,” said successful Trophy-Truck racer Roger Norman. “I came knowing this was one of the hardest sets of courses, and we just went methodically through the process of accomplishing each for the overall win.”
The obstacles on Saturday were intense including a 30ft vertical climb called the Terminator. With a couple of tries, Norman pushed the Torchmate Rig up over the top and on Sunday he mastered it in one shot! Norman also did about a 25ft vertical drop where he did the longest standing nose wheelie of the weekend, right into a water filled tunnel. “The adrenaline for the entire 10 minutes is pumping!” exclaimed Norman. “It is amazing what we are doing, and then you watch all the rest of your competitors try and do the same thing. It makes for a great day!” He left the competition on Saturday in the lead by well over 40 points.
