W.E.ROCK Hits The World
W.E.ROCK is the only international sanctioning body to offer over 84 events, in 13 countries featuring 600 Rock Sports teams.
The competitive network includes regional series throughout the US and a National Series that is divided into Western and Eastern
Divisions that meet at season-end for a Grand National Championship. Sanctioned competitive series are also staged in a number of
countries around the world. All combined, W.E.ROCK has created the largest international Rock Crawling network in the world.
In 2005 W.E.ROCK held the first international Rock Crawling Championship. Six teams from the US travelled to Australia to battle
for the World Champion Title. Teams were provided with replica vehicles and the competition and crawl of their lives.
In 2007 the World Championships were held in Las Vegas, Nevada. The best teams from five countries around the world made their way to
the awesome W.E.ROCK designed and constructed course outside of the Fiesta Casino to compete for World Championship bragging rights. The
Worlds have become the most prestigious event in the sport of Rock Crawling. Under the current world economic constraints, the World
Championships have been suspended temporarily. While the economic climate has made it nearly impossible to hold another World Championship
event, W.E.ROCK has continued to build a world-wide presence adding Japan and China to the list of participating nations.

The growth of Rock Crawling over the past decade has been impressive as the sport has been recognized as the fasted growing segment in
Off-Road competition. 2010 is expected to be a banner year for the sport, seeing continued growth in spectators, teams, sponsors and
media coverage. W.E.ROCK will continue to lead the way with new venues and events planned both in the US and internationally. Our 30%
spectator attendance growth in 2009, as we fought through an economic downturn, brought our sport unprecedented new enthusiasts.
W.E.ROCK provides more of everything for any brand that wants to impact the growing legion of off-road fans that follow the sport of Rock
Crawling. Numbers continue to grow! More action, more spectators, more teams, more international events, more national events, and more
media coverage means more value. The time is right to catch this rising star in the lucrative off-road sports category.
This, along with W.E.ROCK's new look has fueled more excitement than all of the previous years combined. From media coverage to customer
service to premier event sites, W.E.ROCK has redefined the world of Rock Crawling and redefined the term "Extreme."

The Eastern & Western U.S. Nationals
The western states have been the breeding grounds for the off-road industry. W.E.ROCK has the region covered with four scheduled
events on the calendar for 2010.
Western U.S. Nationals
March 26-28 Oroville, CA Red=Sites on the 2010 Schedule

June 18-20 Reno, NV
Jul. 31-Aug 1 Salt Lake City, UT - (Proposed Evening Event)
W.E.ROCK continues to put together the most prestigious Rock Crawling competitions in the eastern US. The Eastern U.S. Nationals cover
more area along the eastern seaboard than any other Rock Crawling series. Opportunities for businesses wanting to put their product and
brand in front of this growing east coast market of off-road enthusiasts can capitalize on the regional series.
Eastern U.S. Nationals
May 21-23 Rausch Creek, PA Red=2010 Scheduled Sites
May 23-24 Hannibal, MO
June 27-28 Rausch Creek, PA
August 1-2 Dayton, TN (Season Finale' Night Event)
Both the Western and Eastern series are developing "feeder" events as qualifiers for the events. The W.E.ROCK Championship Series is
a pyramid, with the feeder series providing local competitors a "minor league" opportunity to join the sport. This system creates
training and breeding grounds for the Nationals and allows companies the opportunity to capitalize on local and regional marketing
strategy. W.E.ROCK has developed multiple levels of sponsorships, advertising programs and promotional concepts for businesses that
can be customized to meet your marketing program.
Beyond the series, W.E.ROCK is developing W.E.ROCK University. A Rock Crawling driving school located in Tucson AZ. Aspiring Rock Crawling
Drivers and Spotters will learn to navigate the world's most difficult competition terrain in their own vehicles. Instructors include the
world's leading course designer Lil' Rich Klein, along with an All-Star cast of the nation's best drivers. W.E.ROCK University will be
featured on W.E.ROCK Live, a reality based TV show about Rock Crawling that's currently under production. This is a great venue for team
building and structuring within your company and a bonding experience that will have a lifetime impact.

W.E.ROCK Grand Nationals
TThe Western and Eastern Series culminate in the Grand Nationals at the end of the season. The best teams from the East and West battle on
the toughest course of the year for the National Championship Title. International media coverage, huge crowds and fierce competition make
this event the Superbowl of Rock Crawling each year.
Media coverage- which includes national and international TV, trade publications, consumer off-road publications and regional consumer media -
make this the #1 media event in the industry and delivers more impressions than any other event in the Rock Crawling industry.
The Grand Nationals include seminars, product displays, car corrals, hospitality setting, and track time
for participants along with Event Souvenir Program Advertising and corporate connections.
