After two days of intense W.E. Rock crawling where the lead changed more times than can be counted the final scores crowned Brent Bradshaw the Unlimited Class National Champion, Troy Bailey the Pro Modified National Champion and Duane Garretson the Stock Class Champion. The W.E. Rock Grand National Championships were held at the Miller Motorspors Park in Tooele, UT where the East Coast competitors met the West Coast competitors to determine the National Champion at the season finale. “The Grand Nationals is always the one of the best events of the year where all the competitors come together and put their battles on the rocks,” said Rich Klein, W.E. Rock promoter. “There were so many lead changes it made it exciting for everyone watching and involved, each course had to be executed perfectly to take the win.”
Brent Bradshaw / Chris Poblano
The Unlimited class champion Trail Tough Brent Bradshaw and spotter Chris Poblano managed each of the 9 courses like a methodical team, but at the end of day one it was Torchmate Racing Jesse Haines ahead by 11 points. These two teams have been battling all season and Sundays competition heated up even more when Bradshaw took the lead early in the day when Haines made moves that landed him on his roof, unable to complete the course. In the meantime, Monster Energy Wayland Campbell and Shannon Campbell consistently finished each course. After the shootout that only Bradshaw and Campbell were able to successfully complete, the National Title belonged to Trail Tough Brent Bradshaw and Chris Poblano. Second place went to 15 year old Monster Energy Wayland Campbell, Third to Torchmate Racing Jesse Haines, Fourth to BFGoodrich Tires Robert McKenney, Fifth to Raceline Wheels Justin Hall and Sixth to Yukon Gear & Axle Todd Young.
Troy Bailey / Scott Dillard
The Pro Modified class champion Maxxis Tires Troy Bailey and Scott Dillard would never have believed that the National Title would be theirs after day one with the intense battle from the beginning with Maxxis Tires Kenny Blume who had the lead at the end of day one. The lead changed in the Pro Modified class at least three times including having DynoMax Nick Campbell taking the lead after an amazing flip and save by spotter Jason Berger. After the shootout where the points counting was important, Maxxis Tires Troy Bailey and Scott Dillard would take the National Title. Second place went to Tom Wood’s Custom Drive Shafts Kenny Blume, Third to DynoMax Nick Campbell, Fourth to Jimmy’s 4×4 Jason Fueilly, Fifth to Pro Comp Justin Lawson and Sixth to PSC Steering Shelby Gilstrap.
Duane Garretson / Jeff Spear

Come Get Ya Some Duane Garretson and Jeff Spear would take on each course and complete them.
