PLACERVILLE, CA: The Western Pro National four event season came to an end titling Brent Bradshaw the Unlimited Class Champion, Nick Campbell the Pro Modified Class Champion and Victor Burness the Modified Stock Class Championship.  The Unlimited and Pro Modified Class had points battles to the end that made every event important.  The Champions will be presented at the W.E. Rock Grand National Championship, where the East meets the West drivers, at Miller Motorsports Park September 24th and 25th.

The Unlimited Class consisted of the core of rock crawling totaling over 50 years of experience.  Brent Bradshaw from Trail Tough, Torchmate Racing Jesse Haines, Matt Messer from Trail Gear, and Wayland Campbell the 15 year old son of Shannon Campbell, of Campbell Enterprises competed for season points.  The heat of the competition really boiled down to Brent Bradshaw and Jesse Haines who fought for each point at every competition, with Bradshaw winning one competition by only one point!  Brent Bradshaw swept the entire season with his consistent driving style, while Jesse Haines went for almost every bonus line bringing the crowd to their feet but taking second at each event.  This put Bradshaw and Haines first and second respectively in season points.  Wayland Campbell put quality time under his belt learning two different cars and how to rock crawl from his dad, some great scores and battles put him third in the season points.  Matt Messer only competed in two of the four events putting him fourth in points.

PLACERVILLE, CA - The second round of the W.E. Rock Western Pro Nationals concluded last weekend in Oroville, CA at the Urban Assault area at Surplus City.  Brent Bradshaw took the Unlimited Class win in an epic battle to the end, and Roger Norman earned the Pro Mod class win in his rookie season.  Victor Buress has his second win in the Modified Stock class and Bror Wingard took the win in the new Sportsman Class.

The town of Oroville, CA opened its arms to the rock crawling community shutting downtown streets for Tech on Friday night.  Saturday morning the crawlers joined in the Feather Fiesta Days Parade, an annual event in Oroville.  “The crowds loved the rock crawlers, the burnouts and the 10 yard dashes,” commented Bob Frank, Surplus City Urban Assault Manager.  “It was a great show and I am glad that everyone took the opportunity to participate and show off the sport.”

Back at the start of August, we posted coverage of the 2010 WE Rock Western Nationals off-road rock-crawling competition from Miller Motorsports Park in Utah. Since then, the WE Rock series wrapped up with the Grand National Championship, which was also at Miller Motorsports Park at the start of October. Check out coverage of that event here.

We recently revamped our YouTube page for Off-Road.com, which currently features a great video from the WE Rock Western Nationals shot by contributor Stephen Clark. There’s also a bunch of other great off-road videos there as well, including an interview we did with Sal Fish about the upcoming 2010 SCORE Tecate Baja 1000.
