W.E. Rock Professional Rock Crawling Western Series Starts with Parade and Ends with Podium and Cash
Professional Rock Crawling Saturday and Sunday August 1st and 2nd starting at 10am
The third and final round of the Trail-Gear W.E. Rock Western Professional Rock Crawling Series is in Goldendale, Washington this weekend concluding the 15th year of regular season competition. The action starts on Friday night at the Goldendale High School parking lot where the Rock Crawlers will be on display before the downtown parade. At the end of the parade, the drivers and cars will put on a show crawling over some old cars and will then be on display downtown near the band for everyone to enjoy. The competition will be on Saturday and Sunday at the Broken Boulder Farms, a short four miles from downtown Goldendale.
“This event always has great action as the pro teams try for their best finish at the last Western Series event of the season. This year the competition has been very tough,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “The weather looks to be warm and dry with a nice breeze predicted. Rock climbing among the pines always gives that much needed shade for teams and spectators alike.” 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.
