Obsession Racing 2017 Press Release #3


MENIFEE, CA – The first weekend in March started out in Atlanta Georgia for another exciting event held by Monster Jam.  Our friend Mark Gallagher flew out to help us crew for the Saturday and Sunday shows.  This was Eric’s final show without having a body after it was destroyed in Jacksonville Florida.  Saturday night Rick laid down a good run in racing and put on a crowd pleasing freestyle.  Eric passed Dad up in racing and was on fire making it into the top eight category.  Even without a body Eric did his enormous air show in freestyle and placed sixth out of sixteen trucks in freestyle.  On Sundays show Rick and Eric lost in their first round of racing but Rick made it up in freestyle by putting on a great run! Unfortunately for Eric they were not able to get his truck back to running condition for freestyle. Rick had a long haul to do after this show.  It was a 2,100 mile trip home to get ready for the Las Vegas Monster Jam show. Once they got home they had a lot of work to do to get Eric’s new body mounted and painted and any other maintenance work that need to be done for the Double Down show.

Las Vegas is always a week long show.  Obsession was on display only for this show.  Eric in his new 1968 Ford body competed in the Double Down Race on Thursday night.  Everyone loved his new body style on Obsessed!  Hot Wheels told us that Eric truck was one of the most requested toys to be made.  Thursday night Eric was on fire in racing! He was timed as the fasted time in the Double Down history of Monster Jam. He worked his way up to the final round!  It was amazing to see all of the love and support of our Monster truck family! In the finals he was quick off of the line but unfortunately clipped the wall and rolled.  We all were so very proud of him making it as far as he did.  I think he has found a new love in racing now too!
