MENIFEE, CA – This year started off on New Year’s Day heading for Tacoma Washington for Monster Jam. This was Eric’s first event for Monster Jam. This event consisted of 4 shows in the course of three days. Eric was up against Grave Digger in racing for the whole weekend. Justin Cluster filled for Rick for two days as Rick was still recovering from his double knee surgery in late November. First quarter is always exciting to be back working for Monster Jam with the large fan base and strong runs against some of the most talented drivers in the industry. A lot of the drivers have been around Eric since he was a baby and they enjoyed running with him and complement his driving ability. When running the trucks at this level for Monster Jam the trucks take quite the abuse and Eric’s run on Saturday night ended with the left rear champagne breaking in half and ending his weekend early. We want to thank Justin Cluster for driving and crewing for us in Tacoma.
The following weekend we were back at home in Anaheim once again for Monster Jam. This show was Saturday night only. We only had Obsessed booked for this show and Eric was the main attraction. Eric lost first round in racing against Titan. But he made up for it in his freestyle run ending with a high score that ranked higher than the big named trucks. It was a very proud night for Obsession Racing.
San Diego California was our next event with Monster Jam. This show was also a Saturday night only show with both Obsession and Obsessed with Rick and Eric driving. The show started out with Eric’s truck’s jack shaft breaking but they were able to get it repaired for freestyle. Rick did a great job in racing and was fourth fastest in qualifying. Rick and Eric did a great freestyle run qualifying in the upper half of the bracket.
January ended in Anaheim California for Monster Jam with a Saturday night only show. Both trucks were booked for this event. They had quick runs in racing. Rick was first out in freestyle setting the bar high for all of the following drivers. Eric did a great freestyle run with a lot of big air and ending in a roll over. Our next event in February will be in Salt Lake City Utah.
