W.E.ROCK Regional Series
The only regional series currently developed on the western seaboard features W.E.ROCK Classes in both Pro
and Semi Pro divisions. The main difference between the two divisions is money based to provide a cheap
alternative for running against the top drivers. The CalROCS series travels to several locations
throughout California and it is the only traveling Rock Crawling series besides the W.E.ROCK series.

Over the years the sport of rock crawling has been built from the top down. Every series' goal was to
produce and promote the "Pro" rock crawlers. This would make over 5 different promotional bodies, all
having their own rules, own competitors, with no way to move up or start in the grassroots stage of a
racing career. Just like any form of racing, Darwin's theory of "Survival of the Fittest" would come
into play and promoters would either buy each other out, merge, or fall off the scene. Through all the
action, one would eventually come out on top and other would find ways to still hold events, but do it
together as unity would create strength.
This is where W.E.ROCK comes in with the grand plan, one that captures a very unique seat for all
involved. As the lead promoter in Rock Crawling, W.E.ROCK also has an International Sanctioning Body
for rules and growth throughout the world, which currently works with 5 active countries, and over 20
other countries that are gearing up for competition. This base would be a great starting point for all
others as well, regionally, divisionally, nationally, and internationally.
The sanctioning body of W.E.ROCK helps build the sport from the regional grassroots portion of the sport
all the way to the international scale. There are many levels to the now pyramid shape of the sport, all
of which are important. At the foundation of this pyramid is one of the most crucial pieces to the very
stable W.E.ROCK organization, the Regional Series.
The many regional series' in the W.E.ROCK pyramid are produced to give a very family orientated,
entry-level competition for enthusiasts and fans to get their feet wet. With a network of 10 regional
series located throughout the U.S. with many more on the way, there is a place for every team, fan,
sponsor, and partner that may be interested in the sport. Below is a list with contact info for each
series under W.E.ROCK.

Hannibal Rocks and the RRock Series:
Located just north of St. Louis by an hour, this site sits just outside by 5 miles of Hannibal, MO where
Mark Twain once had residence. Hannibal Rocks is an Off-Road park that recreational wheelers can go play
at as well as the host to the RRock Series that many East Coast Wheels have come to love. RRock features
the 3 W.E.ROCK Classes as well as several others to involve anyone that wants to play. W.E.ROCK utilizes
their great staff, wheeling knowledge, and event site as one of the staple locations in the Eastern U.S.
Nationals. W.E.ROCK will be attending Hannibal, MO on April 25th - 27th.

RCROCS (Rausch Creek Rock-crawling & Off-road Championships Series)
RCROCS is located in Pennsylvania only an hour outside of the state capital of Harrisburg at Rausch Creek
Off-Road Park. The site features Man-Made Rock sprayed of concrete, and Natural Terrain with a gray and
white colored rock. The Rausch Creek Park is the only site in the world to feature full Man-Made and full
Natural obstacles for their competition venue. So for those recreational wheelers that prefer to stay
all-natural, there is plenty of rock out there for you. RCROCS is also a location for the W.E.ROCK
Eastern U.S. Nationals, as the Top Teams will be rockin' on August 1st - 3rd.
