ARCA Joins Forces With IRCA, Renames Itself RCAA

RCAARiverton, Utah - The American Rock Crawlers Association (ARCA) announced today that it is expanding horizons. Working with the International Rock Crawlers Association (IRCA), ARCA again leads the way in promoting rockcrawling on an international level.

IRCA is an association that will promote and sanction rock crawling competitions similar to those of ARCA on an international level with competitions between National champions.

IRCA will sanction ARCA as well as other associations holding rock crawling competitions in various countries. The purpose and goal of IRCA is to grow the sport of rock crawling by uniting 4wd associations, clubs and enthusiasts from around the world.

This growth is due to the tremendous support from different media sources helping enthusiasts connect with the sport of rock crawling both on national and international levels. Articles in AutoWeek Magazine, Car & Driver, the Washington Time, as well as all national four-wheel drive magazines, have helped to promote the sport and prompt both growth and change to the Goodyear/ Skyjacker Extreme Rock Crawling Nationals. Televisions Outdoor Channel is showcasing the sport. ARCA events have also been seen on The History Channel, The Edge Of Outdoors, and the very popular "Junkyard Wars."

Ranch Pratt, President of ARCA said: "We are seeing more and more support from around the world." A two-times event winner, driver Walker Evans said: "rock crawling is the fastest growing motor sport I've seen in my racing career."

In conjunction with partnering with IRCA, the American Rock Crawlers Association announced that they will be changing their name to the Rock Crawlers Association of America (RCAA), still pronounced ARCA.
