The second round of the Trail-Gear Western Pro Rock Crawling series is happening this Saturday and Sunday at a brand new location in Rangely Colorado. The battles in each class are extremely competitive, providing a day of high entertainment for all to watch. The first round of competition in Arizona went well for some, and others need to make up a lot of points this weekend. “We are really excited to come to the Rangely Rock Crawling Park for the first time ever,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “There are some big and technical rocks here that will give us room to create lots of bonus lines for drivers. With it being a new location, there won’t be an advantage to any team, they will all have to perform at the pro level to win!”
Rock crawling starts at 10am on both Saturday and Sunday. Professional Rock Crawling is one of the most we rock congress 071intricate 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.
