BLACKFOOT, ID JUNE 26, 2014: The Nitro Gear & Axle Eastern W.E. Rock Pro Rock Crawling Series will be part of the well attended 4thAnnual 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!
