Just received a press release from Jesse Haines, and wow did it feel like a trip down memory lane. All in a good way of course — Jesse has never stopped pushing rock crawling competitions and this latest press is even more evidence to that. He and his newly formed Silver State Rock Crawling event have acquired the rights to SuperCrawl. Yes, SuperCrawl, from the UROC days of past. I’d link to a UROC photo set if I had one, but this was well before I picked up my first camera. It was quite some time ago, but the memories of those SuperCrawl competitions are still fresh in the mind, and this blast from the past is getting the adrenaline flowing once again for rock crawling.
With that, congratulations to Jesse and Silver State Rock Crawling, we are excited to see the movement continue and can’t wait to get out to rock crawling once again. Jesse’s official press release has been included below, with that enjoy the weekend!
Silver State Rock Crawling Acquires Rights to SuperCrawl
November 3, 2015
In an effort to expand the appeal of the Silver State Rock Crawling Championship to a national and global market, Silver State Rock Crawling has acquired the rights to SuperCrawl. Established in 2002, SuperCrawl was the first rock crawling world championship, and reigned as the sport’s premier event until SuperCrawl V in 2006. Silver State Rock Crawling owner, Jesse Haines purchased the rights to SuperCrawl from UROC owner, Ranch Pratt.
Haines said, “I’m really excited about the future of this event. The inaugural SSRCC was a huge success, and the return of SuperCrawl is going to help take our efforts to the next level.”
In September 2016, the Silver State Rock Crawling Championship will operate in conjunction with the SuperCrawl World Championship at Wild West Motorsports Park in Reno, NV.
