CalROCS Announces 2010 4x4 Rock Crawling Competition Season Schedule

CalROCS is a grassroots rock crawling series that is sanctioned by W.E. Rock. In its third full season, the CalROCS series attracts competitors from the entire western region with some of the wildest, coolest and perhaps weirdest looking vehicles you have ever seen, from fairly stock looking jeeps to incredible “Moon Buggies”. There is non-stop action for the two-day events with each competitor running four courses with no shortage of carnage, rollovers and incredible displays of driving talent. All of the CalROCS events will also include Radio Controlled Rock Crawling Competitions.

The competition was stiff in 2009 where four out of the five classes came down to the last day to determine the 2009 Champions. In the Stock Class, Dan Patterson took first place in all four events, and will be back in 2010 to attempt to continue his domination. In the full body class, “Welder Boy” and Mike Bou both had two firsts and two seconds, and in a one round shoot-out to determine the champion, Mike Bou won by two points. The Pro-Mod Buggy class came down to a battle between Jeff Mello and teammate Brian Whitford with Brian slightly edging ahead for the Championship. The Super Mod Class also came down to the last round of competition where Derek Trent from Trent Fab took the win over Pirates of the Rubicon brothers Dustin & Tim Emick. In the Unlimited Class, where the buggys are built and the competition is strong, Brent Bradshaw in the Scrapper won at the final Donner Ski Ranch event to edge out Dave Wong in his 4-wheel steer buggy.

The line up for the 2010 year will be just as intense. CalROCS is designed to keep the costs down so virtually anyone can participate in this series, and have fun doing it. The Reno events will also feature Extreme MX and the first Donner event will feature a live band on Saturday night. More information on the specific events is available at www.calrocs.com.
