Professional Rock Crawling Saturday and Sunday starting at 10am
PLACERVILLE, CA JULY 18, 2013: The final round of the Western Pro Rock Crawling event in Goldendale Washington will be the last regular event in the 14th year of W.E. Rock. This weekends event will title the Western Series Champion and will set the scene for the Grand Nationals in Cortez, Colorado in September. “We already have teams here from California and more are on the way from all the western surrounding states to put on a real exciting show. In the Pro Mod class, three competitors are tied for first in points!” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “There are large beautiful trees here at the park where spectators can utilize the shade and still see all the action. Those same trees, big boulders made out of lava rocks and old lava ledges that are over 10ft tall are going to make it challenging for the drivers!”
Rock crawling starts at 10am on both Saturday and Sunday. 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.
There are over a dozen drivers already committed to coming to compete, some driving over 20 hours to be part of this professional series! There are currently three Pro Mod drivers that are tied for first place. Aaron Sykes, Jared Neff and Jesse Haines are going to go head to head in a heated final round. The finishing order of the event will determine the winner of the series! Not to mention Jason Feuilly and Mike Stokes that are only a few points off!
In the Unlimited Class, Justin Hall has won both of the events to date and currently leads the series. Matt Messer and Randy Southall are currently tied for second. Again, anything can happen with the points after determining this weekends finishing position
Mod Stock and Local 4×4 participants are encouraged to participate in the Sportsman Class and join already registered Alan Phenis, James Treacy, Richard Crist and Terry Jones. There are minimal safety requirements including a roof, doors, 4-point harnesses, a DOT helmet and two fire extinguishers.
