Torchmate Racing Ken Blume and Rusty Bray Compete in W.E. Rock Eastern Pro Series First Round This Weekend

RENO, NV     MAY 13, 2011   Torchmate Racing Ken Blume and Rusty Bray will compete in this weekends W.E. Rock Eastern Pro Series National event in Dayton, TN.   The opening round for the Eastern Series, both Ken Blume and Rusty Bray will be focused on winning the Pro Mod class and setting the stage for the rest of the season.

Ken Blume has been competing at the highest levels of professional rock crawling competition for the last decade under the banner of Rock Rod Racing. While Rock Rod Racing has dabbled in the go fast stuff with numerous top finishes in short course rock/woods events, their core emphasis has been on the competitive side of rock crawling events across the nation.  Strong consistent performances over the years helped Blume win two series championships in the punishing and competitive W.E. Rock series. “Our current Pro Mod race Jeep has 4 seasons and multiple series championships under its belt.  It’s time for some freshening of the car and having the Torchmate CNC plasma cutting system on hand will enable faster design, cutting and fabrication and allow some design elements previously not considered,” said Ken Blume.  “We are proud to be associated with Torchmate racing and look forward to being a part of their team.”

Rusty Bray has been involved in rock crawling and rock racing competitions for the past decade and has achieved considerable success in that time.  Competing in a rig designed by fellow Torchmate Team member Jesse Haines, Bray has already competed in the TREC Endurance race earlier in the season where he blew the motor on the third lap after loosing oil pressure.  He was running in third. After a solid rebuild, Bray is ready to come out and show his talents in rock crawling this weekend.  “We are excited to come out to Tennessee and give the Torchmate fans a real show!” said Bray.
