CalROCS Boasts Most Spectator Friendly Natural Course at Season Opener

Each competitor ran four separate courses per day, where there was definitely no shortage of carnage and rollovers.  In the Super Mod class Dustin Emick beat out Derek Trent at the last cone of the last course by pulling off a wild 20 foot drop bonus line for an 8-point lead to win the event.

The Unlimited class winner Brent Bradshaw “pulled the craziest line out there and did the most amazing 25 foot drop at an 85 degree angle that we have seen in years,” announced Bonner. “With a large ditch at the bottom he couldn’t gas it out and bounced all over the place before he was able to recover successfully.”  BJ Imlach had a great run on Sunday trying to catch Bradshaw, but couldn’t quite catch him finishing second.

The Pro Mod class had the most competition, but it was a neck-to-neck battle between Jessie Haines and Jon Hall.  Hall had a spectacular roll on day 2…up-righted it…and finished the course with only 2 seconds left to complete the course and stay in the race. In the end, Haines took the win by 3 points.

In the Full Body class, Jim Brown held a 1-point lead over 2009 reigning champion Mike Boone at the end of the day Saturday.  Brown maintained the lead on Sunday but Bill Rowlette snuck into take the second place spot putting Boone in third.  The Stock class was a little lopsided with Dan Patterson winning 1st place by 129 points over the 2nd place finisher, Brian Bennett. Chaz Merritt took 3rd place in his first ever rock crawling event.

The award ceremony was held onsite Sunday after the events where Rich Walker and the Canada crew took home the win for the furthest traveled: over 900 miles.

With the first event being so exciting, mark your calendar for the next event in 3 weeks at the same location, but with very different courses.  The level of entertainment will jump up a notch with a stage hosting live bands all day, Xtreme Motocross jumping and more! It’s sure to be better than ever!
