Competitive rockcrawling has been working its way around the U.S. since organized series were started back in 1999. Since that time dozens of series have popped up around the country and the competitive spirit that we have watched for years on the trails has been refined into an organized system. Events are running nearly every weekend in this country as well as others, but no event is esteemed as highly as the UROC World Championship SuperCrawl.
Every year the SuperCrawl is moved to a different location. In 2004 UROC built the first man-made course just two weeks prior to SuperCrawl III. This year, the 2006 World Championship SuperCrawl V was held in Phoenix at Firebird International Raceway. Despite a flood of naysayers, the course proved formidable and offered plenty of rockcrawling action. In 2005 SuperCrawl IV was built on a foundation of Polystyrene blocks at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Completed in just three days, SuperCrawl IV was held in conjunction with the SEMA show, and automotive enthusiasts from around the world witnessed extreme rockcrawling for the first time. Bitten by the bug, many went home to build their own rockcrawlers in hopes of a title in 2006. In the end, BFGoodrich Tires' Tracy Jordan and Brad Lovell took the cup home in the Super Modified and Modified classes respectfully.
