Double Header Weekend in Arizona with W.E. Rock Rock Crawling and Dirt Riot Endurance Racing Professional Rock Crawling Saturday March 16th Starting at 10am outside Congress, AZ
Dirt Riot Endurance 4×4 Racing Sunday March 17th Starting at 9am outside Congress, AZ
PLACERVILLE, CA MARCH 13, 2013: This weekend marks a first in W.E. Rock history, hosting a two day event comprised of the Western Series Professional Rock Crawling on Saturday March 16th and the National Dirt Riot 4×4 Endurance Racing series kicking off its Southwest Region races on Sunday March 17th brought to you by 4 Wheelers Supply in Phoenix, Arizona. This weekends events are very spectator friendly at the Thompson’s Ranch just outside of Congress, Arizona, only 5 miles down a dirt road that is better maintained than in years’ past and suitable for small cars. “The terrain in Arizona is always amazing and the competitors love coming here. We are back at the Thompson’s Ranch which is where we held our 2006 and 2007 Extreme Put-Up or Shut-Up Events, so this Saturdays Rock Crawl is going to be a lot of fun to watch with Pros coming from up to 14 hours away,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “Then on Sunday we are having the Dirt Riot race that will put speed on the track, of course we welcome local UTV’s and Trail Class drivers to come and race, everyone is welcome!”
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 be able to see multiple courses running at the same time. This will be a one day rock crawling event, each competitor completing a total of 6 courses. The winner will be determined by the driver that has the least amount of points at the end of the day, 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. Names that are familiar include Unlimited Drivers Matt Messer and Jesse Haines; Pro Mod Drivers include last years series winner Jason Feuilly and Grand National winner Aaron Sykes. Additional drivers that are scheduled to compete include Justin Hall, Randy Southall, Bruce Zeller, Tracy Jordan, Buzzy Bronsema, Jared Neff, Mike Stokes, Jeremy Hammer Chris Najarewica, Paul Tyler and others. There is a stock class that any local drivers are welcome to compete in.
Dirt Riot Racing picks up the speed and puts race buggies, 4×4 trail jeeps, and UTVs on a track to complete as many laps as they can within their groups set amount of time on Sunday. The course is more primitive than last year, with not as many cut roads, but a more open cross country type course including a really fun sand wash with lots of boulders to dodge. Racers include Dirt Riot Southwest Series Winner Mike Klensin and King of the Hammers finisher Andrew McLaughlin. Also scheduled to race are Matt Messer, Jeremy Hammer, Nathan Unruh, John Brock, Todd McCullen, Bailey Campbell and others. In the Stock Classes, we will have Southwest Series winners and National Title holders Alan Johnson and Shawn Passmore racing rigs that they just competed in the Everyman Challenge at the King of the Hammers with. In the Trail Class, which is more of a run-what-you-bring class with some safety requirements, there looks to be a large contingent coming to race out of the local Arizona Undertakers Club.
Both day’s events have classes that are built to encourage local 4×4 or UTV participants to join us in a day of fun competition and racing. For registration information go to https://www.werocklive.com/2013-registration-form. W.E.

We are happy to have the event at the Thompson’s Ranch in Congress, AZ this year. We haven’t been at the ranch since the WERock Shootout over 4 years ago. The event site is only 5 miles down a dirt road, it is NOT at Thunder Rock Offroad Ranch.
