With the largest Unlimited Rock Crawling Car field in the East expected this weekend, the crowds of spectators at Katemcy Rocks will have a lot to look forward to. The rock formations in Mason, TX are second to none. Big climbs, great crack lines and big boulders make technical crawling easy to find. Teams from as far as Maryland and Georgia will be competing in Texas this weekend with many of the teams never seeing the terrain, which always makes it more fun.
“We hosted our 2015 Grand Nationals at Katemcy Rocks last year and had a great turnout with the drivers taking amazing lines that had spectators in disbelief. We are excited to be back as part of our regular season kicking off the Eastern Series with a bang,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “Featured classes this weekend will include the Unlimited and the Pro Mod pro classes as well as a strong sportsman class. Weather promises to be kind this weekend with temps in the 70s and moisture staying away during competition days.”
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 where spectators can bring their chairs and be able to see multiple courses running at the same time. The two-day format includes 4 courses of competition on Saturday and another 4 courses on Sunday, with a final shootout on Sunday afternoon, which usually determines the final finishing positions! 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 many competitors, some driving over 20 hours, to be part of this professional series. Local 4x4 offroaders are encouraged to participate in the Sportsman and UTV Class joining us in two days of competition and fun. Vehicles must have doors, roof, 4 point harnesses, 2 fire extinguishers and competitors must wear DOT helmets. Enter online conta.cc/1q3iPE2 or onsite.
