  • Reading Level: Grade 4

Did you know that some drivers go over boulders instead of around them? Rock crawling vehicles have huge wheels that can grip rocks and help the cars climb steep slopes. The sport is all about precise driving. At rock crawling events, you might see cars crossing wide chasms, driving down steep slopes, and finding the best way around tough obstacles. Sometimes you’ll even see cars tumble end over end down a hill!

Enter the Dirt and Destruction Sports Zone to learn about the history, strategies, competition rules, and the best drivers connected to rock crawling. You’ll learn:

• When and where the first-ever rock crawling competition took place.
• What tools and strategies the drivers and spotters use to overcome obstacles.
• Why rock crawlers try to get the lowest score possible.
• How to stay safe in a vehicle perched on the edge of an enormous boulder.
