POMONA OFF-ROAD EXPO OCT. 6 – 7 TO HOST SECOND STOP OF UROC’S SKYJACKER PRO ROCKCROSS NATIONALS
One of a Kind Event Combines Technical Skill of Rock Crawling with Excitement of Racing

SANTA ANA, CALIF. – (August 1, 2007) The Off-Road Expo presented by Toyota, taking place in Pomona, Calif., October 6-7, will be the second stop of the first-ever United Rockcrawling and Off-Road Challenge (UROC) Skyjacker Pro RockCross National series, a new breed of off-road motorsport that combines technical rock crawling with head-to-head racing, eliminating tedious time trials.

“Having the UROC Skyjacker Pro RockCross Nationals stop at this year’s eighth annual Off-Road Expo is a perfect fit, as thousands of off-road enthusiasts will get to watch and cheer for their favorite teams as they compete against each other in this inaugural series at the expo,” said Off-Road Expo Show Director Tom Gattuso. “With these exciting UROC Pro RockCross races taking place on a special course that will be built on the infield of the race track at the Pomona Fairplex, this year’s Off-Road Expo is truly bigger and better than ever.”

This competition will include heats of more than two dozen racers who will compete in races throughout the weekend, allowing thousands of fans to get an up-close view of all the action. Headlining competitors include Dirt Sport’s 2005 Driver of the Year and 2005 UROC Super Modified Champion Shannon Campbell. Campbell, along with 2005 and 2006 UROC Pro Modified Champions “Team Lovell” (driver Brand Lovell and spotter Roger Lovell) and world and former SuperCrawl champion Dean Bullock and team, will lend their competitive rock crawling experience to help pioneer this exciting new form of racing. Sponsored by Skyjacker, the series is presented by Aero Exhaust and SuperSwamper Tires.

“The UROC Skyjacker Pro RockCross Nationals is truly an innovative new sport that marries the technical skills of rock crawling with the sheer thrill of racing as teams are for the first time up against each other on a huge rock crawling race course,” said UROC President Ranch Pratt. “Off-road lovers in attendance at Off-Road Expo are going to love this new race because it eliminates scoring and monotonous time trials while encompassing all the fun of racing with the green and checkered flags, passing and huge obstacles including rocks, sharp corners and berms!”
