Saturday and Sunday September 28-29 in Cortez, CO
PLACERVILLE, CA SEPTEMBER 19, 2013: The Grand Nationals is the final event of the 2013 Professional Rock Crawling season where the East Coast drivers meet the West Coast drivers in a final shootout where only one will leave with the National Title. WERock PSC Grand Nationals will be a Saturday and Sunday event on September 28-29 in Cortez, CO; a few miles down from the recent Dirt Riot location and only minutes from Jimmy’s 4×4. “Each year we move the location between the East and West in consideration of the drivers, and this year it is a West Coast event. We chose the Cortez, Colorado location for its natural terrain and difficulty,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “These are the top drivers from across the country and they will be putting everything on the line for this title, creating guaranteed action for spectators.”
Rock crawling starts at 2pm on Saturday through early evening, and at 10am Sunday through mid-afternoon. 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 in an area 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 afternoon 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.
There are drivers travelling over 30 hours to be part of this professional series showdown! The Unlimited Class West Champion Justin Hall and East Coast Champion Josh Jordan will go head-to-head. Along with Trail-Gear’s Matt Messer, Randy Southall, Tom Campbell, Denis Volkov and Wayland Campbell.
The Pro Mod West Coast Champion Aaron Sykes yellow Superchips buggy will meet the East Coast Champion Branden and Kenny Blume’s yellow Maxxis buggy. Jared Neff, Jesse Haines, Jason Feuilly, Bailey Campbell and Masa Tsuda, W.E. Rocks Japanese series partner, will also be competing among others.
