W.E. ROCK will be holding Round Two of the Dirt Riot Southwest series this Saturday, May 16th, at MC Motorsports Park in Tucson, Arizona. This is a series of competitive rock crawling and rock racing, similar to Ultra 4 racing.
W.E. ROCK was originally founded in 2000 as CalROCS, a “run what you brung” event, in which there were no vehicle classes, just having to pass a safety inspection to be able to enter the race. With the popularity of the series and drawing competitors from all over the country, W.E. ROCK (World Extreme Rock Crawling Championship) was founded in 2004. Every year, the series continues to grow while keeping to the grassroots drivers behind the wheel, and getting them more experience through more seat time and being able to try new things.
Round 2 of the Dirt Riot Southwest series looks to have over 50 entries in 8 different classes. They run the Pro 4400, 4500, 4600 like Ultra 4 racing, as well as a Pro UTV class and sportsman UTV. This round will also feature a sportsman’s class made up of SuperMod Trail, Modified Trail, and Stock Trail. The series really strives to put as many grassroot drivers behind the wheel as possible.
Qualifying for the Pro classes begins Friday at 5pm, with races happening all day Saturday. This round of the series has co-title sponsors: Trail Boss Offroad and Pirtek. They will have the last and final round of the Southwest series later this year. This event should be packed with excitement, and to find out more event information, be sure to visit the W.E.
