TERRACROSS “RAMPS UP” THE 2017 SEASON AS NATE WESSEL
JOINS THE CELEBRITY X CLASS!
MINNEAPOLIS, MN (April 11, 2017) – Terracross Championship is thrilled to welcome metal alchemist and BMX legend Nate Wessel to the 2017 Celebrity X class. For over a quarter century, Nate has been twisting metal as the premiere progressive ramp builder in the world. Nate’s life work has been traversing the globe, designing and building the most aggressive ramps in all extreme sports disciplines. He has also been commissioned by top athletes in the industry like Travis Pastrana to build things that most others would not be able to accomplish. Not only has Nate designed and built competition courses for the most renowned competitions throughout the globe, but he has also delivered, in conjunction with the USO and Armed Forces Entertainment, elite exhibitions for our troops in Iraq and throughout the middle east. World class ramps from a world-class individual.
“Terracross is pumped to have Nate on board racing RZRs here at Terracross” says co owner Joe Duncan “Nate is a Long time friend of mine who I met through X Games 15 years ago and for many years we have talked about joining forces in some shape or form and now with his dream of racing offroad and the creative/ design ability he brings to the table to create new exciting features for Terracross it is a dream come true for us as well”
Beyond his unparalleled resume as the most progressive ramp builder in the world, Nate has the heart of a racer. As a Professional BMX athlete, Nate brings to Terracross Championship a winning pedigree that will suit him well on the rough, tough, and muddy Terracross courses.
Nate tells us; “My lifelong dream has been to race trophy trucks or some sort of class 1 buggy. I pretty much figured that would never happen seeing how expensive it is to do and that I am not any type of known racer. Getting behind the wheel of a Polaris RZR and racing Terracross will help fill that lifelong Void and make those dreams a reality. The best part is getting to race with some of my heroes and lifelong friends in the celebrity X class. Even more so I cannot wait to get seat time in an RZR for future endeavors (stunts, jumps, records, filming, etc…) of building all kinds of contraptions new ramps and making all kinds of amazing things happen. So stoked for the new dreams and new beginnings of something I have wanted to do my entire life. All I need now is slayer to sponsor my RZR Match made in heaven”
The Terracross Celebrity X class is filled with personalities from all disciplines, from broadcast to racing to MMA. This will no doubt be a must see class to watch as they hone their skills on the track. For more details and a full list of athletes go to Terracrossracing.com.
