W.E. Rock Professional Rock Crawling Western Series Attracts Large Competitor Count to Rangely Colorado
Professional Rock Crawling Saturday and Sunday June 13th and 14th starting at 10am
The second round of the Trail-Gear W.E. Rock Western Professional Rock Crawling Series heads to Rangely, Colorado this weekend continuing the 15th year of regular season competition. “This years rock crawling course will be expanded to include more of the natural terrain here in Rangely. This second Western Series event is shaping up to be great with more competitors running this year than last,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “The weather looks to be perfect for two days of rock crawling with temperatures in the mid 80’s and no strong winds forecasted. We have heard about lots of spectators coming out to enjoy and we are looking forward to hosting another great show!” The event is very spectator and family friendly with the professional drivers available to sign autographs for the crowd in midst of the competition.
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 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 night, 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.
