Nitro Gear Eastern Series W.E. Rock Professional Rock Crawling Joins UMC Event at Badlands Offroad Park
Professional Rock Crawling Saturday and Sunday starting at 9am
Badlands Offroad Park, Attica Indiana
BLACKFOOT, ID JUNE 26, 2014: The Nitro Gear & Axle Eastern W.E. Rock Pro Rock Crawling Series will be part of the well attended 4th Annual Ultimate Motorsports Championship (UMC) at the Badlands Off Road Park in Attica, Indiana. The three-day event will include two full days of extreme rock crawling action in the quarry at the south end of the park. “The rock quarry at the Badland park has always been a drivers favorite. In the last year the rocks have been moved around where Josh has been able to build all new courses. Only one is similar to years past,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “We encourage those that are coming to watch the weekends events to bring their 4×4 and participate in our Sportsman Class. It is essentially a run what you brung class that isn’t too difficult so you can have fun and win!”
Rock crawling starts at 9am on both Saturday and Sunday. The rock crawling event will end early on Saturday afternoon to accommodate the Ultra4 race later that afternoon. The two-day format includes four courses to complete on Saturday and another four courses on Sunday, finishing with a shootout where the top drivers compete for the win. The winner will be determined by the driver that has the least amount of points at the end of the weekend, similar to golf. There are over a dozen drivers already committed to coming to compete, some driving over 14 hours to be part of this professional series.
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 on a wall where spectators can bring their chairs and are able to see multiple courses running at the same time.
As with every year the 2014 UMC is bigger, louder, faster, and better than ever. Keeping in the tradition of the hometown feel of the UMC, Friday kicks off with a town festival in downtown Attica featuring race cars and drivers, good food, games, music and kids can go for a ride in the monster truck Coyote Hunter. Saturday and Sunday is full of racing excitement including 6 Monster Trucks jumping and crushing cars in the PIT Arena, Motocross Freestyle and Wheelie competitions, W.E. ROCK Professional Rock Crawling competition in the quarry, Rally Racing, and the Ultra4 King of the Hammers qualifying race!

W.E. Rock Eastern Series
| The W.E. Rock Eastern Series is going to look a little different this year. There is some good and some not-so-good.The first event is going to be in Attica, Indiana, as part of the Badlands UMC event; lots of action to be had over the weekend, in the quarry and elsewhere on June 28 and 29.Event #2 is going to be in Dayton, Tennessee on August 1 and 2, this is a Friday night/Saturday night event.With W.E. Rock typically being 3 events, this is how the points will work for 2014:Both Attica and Dayton will have three additional courses. In order to win the “Round 3” you will need to attend both events.The entry fee for “Round 3” will be $150 at each of the two events – this will all go in to the purse; no membership fee is being collected.After the Cancellation of the First Event, beyond our control:
Our goal was to find a location for a July 12th event, when this didn’t happen, we tried to find the best solution for our drivers.
- Less travel cost
- No vacation changes
- Still able to complete three events
This isn’t our favorite solution, but the best we can do to keep everything fair, if you are competing at Ultra4 in Attica, please let us know so we can schedule appropriately. Also, plan on an earlier start on Saturday afternoon in Dayton.
We appreciate all of you so much, and were heartbroken when the King Knob event didn’t happen. Please know we have your best interest at heart.
