Team Waggoner Racing has competed in 17 Extreme Rock Crawling Championship Series and ranks 5th nationally. They are also the 2008 2nd place champions in the WE ROCK USA West Coast Series.

In rock crawling, officials set courses in rocky terrain with cones. Drivers must stay between the cones and get from start to finish in a set amount of time with minimum penalty points. If boundaries are broken or if the drivers hit cones they receive penalties. There are additional penalties for backing up, using rear steer or a winch to aid in progress. The winner is the driver who completes the two-day competition with the least amount of points.

Each driver is allowed a spotter to help them maneuver through the courses. They communicate with wireless headset radios, hand signals and the old fashioned way of yelling. The spotter suggests the best route to make it through the difficult terrain in the given amount of time.

Cody’s father Jim is the spotter and Cody is the driver. The Waggoner Team also consists of Lindsay Waggoner, Cody’s wife and Charley, the couple’s three year old daughter.

Team Waggoner Racing will compete once again, with K&N products “My K&N air filters are amazing,” said Cody Waggoner. “I run a total of four K&N filters. After two days of intense dust and dirt during competitions, K&N keeps the dirt out and I still have the horsepower I need."

Team Waggoner has 20 first place wins and five first place series titles. They also have 15 second place event wins and nine second place series titles.
