Obsession Racing Press Release #3


MENIFEE, CA – The first weekend in March started off in Tucson Arizona for Monster Jam.  This was a three day event with 4 shows.  Justin Cluster piloted the Obsession Truck for Rick and Eric drove his Obsessed truck.  This show was performed on a concrete floor with raw cars.  This is usually a challenged track for most but our trucks handled it perfectly.  Eric came on top with the fastest qualifying time and earned a cool trophy to prove it.  They did great freestyles with scores ranging in the top half.


Rick flew out Saturday evening to meet Justin and Eric in El Paso Texas for another Monster Jam show.  Saturday Justin drove Obsession and broke the sway bar and it unfortunately ended in the motor damaging it for Sunday’s show.  They tried everything they could to get Obsession to run for Sunday’s event but nothing seemed to work with what they had.  Eric was on fire on Sunday afternoon! He was the fifth truck out for freestyle and caught some breath taking amazing air which rewarded him by placing him in the hot seat until the 18th place by Todd Leduc in Metal Mulisha stepped up to the plate.  Todd may have beaten his score but Eric was the real winner as his truck was still in one piece and was able to drive into the trailer with no issue like the others.


Justin Cluster was done helping us for the year and headed back home to Watsonville.  We really appreciated him helping us out this year.  The next show for Rick and Eric was closer to home in Victorville California for Outlaw Monster Trucks.  This was a freestyle only show with just Rick’s truck Obsession with Eric behind the wheel.  Eric was a crowd favorite in his Dad’s truck and ended the show literally driving the wheels off of it and taking the overall win for the night!


Ending our events for March was in Las Vegas for a Monster Jam display.  Eric and Josh were there for the whole week prepping the trucks and making sure everything was in order with Rick and I got there.  It is always a fun display to do as we get to see so many fans, friends and family that we don’t see often.  In this industry of Monster Trucks everyone seems like family and it is comforting that everyone acknowledges your accomplishments and compliments you and gives you the love and support you’ve worked so hard for.  So far this year has been a great success and we are looking forward to more memories and good times with our Monster Jam family!

Obsession Racing Press Release 2015 #2


MENIFEE, CA – On February 7th Eric had the honor of driving Steven Sims Hooked Monster truck in Anaheim California for the televised Monster Jam.  He did a fantastic job piloting somebody else’s truck for the first time.  It was a great experience for him and it was quite an honor to have the management of Monster Jam tell us what a great job he did driving for another team. The show was televised on February 22nd on the Fox Sport 1 channel.  It is a great compliment to be asked by another team that feels confident in your driving abilities to take over the wheel of their equipment.  We are very proud of Eric and his abilities and knowledge at such a young age in this business.

Over Presidents weekend and Valentine’s Day Rick and Eric did a show for WGAS Motorsports at the Date Festival in Indio California.  The show went well with Rick and Eric each winning a day in freestyle.  It is always fun working for WGAS as we get to interact with friends and family.  Unfortunately it was a sorrowful weekend regarding the Borba Family as they lost a wonderful man in their family.  Their daughters husband John passed away suddenly and he will truly be missed but will be in the hearts of many forever.

The following weekend we did a show for Monster Jam in Albuquerque New Mexico.  This was a three day show.  Justin Cluster came along with Rick and Eric to help our Obsession Racing team.  Rick and Eric did a great job and put on a fantastic performance for our Albuquerque fans!  Rick flew home on Monday from Tucson and Justin and Eric stayed to do the show in Tucson the following weekend.

February was a successful month and we are looking forward to an exciting month in March! We hope to see you too!!

MENIFEE, CA – The first event for 2015 was in Tacoma Washington for Monster Jam.  This was a three day show with four events total.  This was a successful weekend to kick off the New Year.  Eric drove his truck Obsessed for all four events and Rick traded off driving Obsession with Justin Cluster.  They were all crowd pleasing shows and Eric shined in Freestyle!  Eric was placed in the top of the lineup for freestyle which is an honor in driving for Monster Jam.

The following weekend we had another Monster Jam show in San Diego California.  This is always a fun show as it is close to home and our families and friends along with our fans can come and watch Rick and Eric shine.  Rick and Eric did a great job piloting their trucks in the new Petco Park Stadium.

On January 24th Eric and Justin headed up to Sacramento to drive for another Monster Jam event.  Eric did great in racing and placed 2nd in freestyle!  Justin drove Obsession and took 2nd place in the wheelie competition and won a first place trophy in the donut contest!

The last show of January was back at Petco Park in San Diego.  This show was booked for Obsessed only.  Eric did a fantastic job! He got the highest air of the night in freestyle!  He was 3rd out but held first place towards the very end.  Dennis Anderson even commented to Eric that he might as well pack his bags now and go after that run! This was a huge compliment to Eric coming from a legend!

January was a great success for Obsession Racing and we are looking forward to a fabulous February!! We hope to see you there!
