(Menifee, California – Obsession Racing PR – By Jill Swanson) – On July 1st-3rd, Obsession Racing was at the San Diego State Fair with both trucks for WGAS Motorsports. All three days we had two exhibition runs that consisted of two minutes a piece. This fair is always a lot of fun because of how many people we know that attended the show. It is nice because after the event they open up the pit area to the fans which lets us mingle with them. It is always great to hear the compliments and comments from the wide array of fans on how they performed and how they appreciate our business. As always Eric’s capabilities and performance level always makes him a fan favorite as the Youngest Monster Truck Driver in the World.
For the Fourth of July we were in Pomona, California for the KABOOM Monster Trucks and Fireworks Show promoted by WGAS Motorsports. At this event we only had Eric’s Obsessed monster truck booked with him driving. Eric took the truck to the semi finals in racing. The truck that took him out was Iron Outlaw, who ended up winning the final round. For freestyle Eric was scheduled to be the third truck out. Eric’s typical fashion his first two hits were to back side the freestyle landing ramp and then he turned around and jumped off the ramp side! Eric was the first truck to do this and it was spectacular! He did an awesome job and finished up his freestyle with a no handed donut (which made him a little dizzy). The firework show was great and we really appreciate all of the help from Jeff Jones and his family.
On the 15th of July, Rick and Eric went to Turlock, California for John Shipman Motorsports for the opening night of the Turlock Fair. They were two of four trucks that put on an exhibition run after all of the tuff trucks were done racing. They didn’t have a lot to work with as far as obstacles, but Eric and Rick made sure they hit everything that they possibly could! Eric managed to even put the truck on the side two wheels for a short time and Rick caught some of the biggest air of the night! We would also like to thank Paul Churchill for helping to get all of the eight tires loaded and Laurie for the goodies.
