The Samson Monster Truck Racing team is proud to announce that crew chief and PEI team member Rick Steffens will be joining the Father/Daughter driving duo of Allison and Dan Patrick as a driver of Samson. Steffens is set to pilot Samson this coming weekend in our first racing event of 2015 at Kil-Kare Speedway in Xenia, Ohio. We’re excited to have Steffens behind the wheel and see what he brings to the table as a driver. As a lifelong monster truck fan Steffens regularly volunteered at events to help out monster truck teams in his youth, eventually becoming a crew chief for some of the top trucks and drivers in the industry, and then became a member of the Samson/PEI team in 2014.With plenty of hands on experience of his own as well as the wealth of knowledge from Dan and Allison, we’re confident Steffens will do a fine job behind the wheel and do Samson fans proud.
Be sure to check out our schedule page to see where you can find Samson this summer. Also don’t forget to like us on Facebook for more info on all things Samson and PEI. Also check out some photos of Steffens in action during the 2015 season by heading over to our photo gallery here.
If you watched last year’s Daytona 500 or the 2014 NASCAR season you may have gotten a glimpse of a familiar, muscular, blue Chevrolet monster truck we all know so well. The Samson Monster Truck team was lucky enough to be invited down to Kanapolis, North Carolina last year to be a part of a unique commercial for Goodyear, which featured NASCAR star and now Sprint Cup Champion Kevin Harvick. Who knows, maybe Ol Sammy sent Harvick some good luck on his way to the championship title? If you haven’t seen the commercial before than check it out below.
The 2014 PEI / Samson Open House was recently featured on an episode of TMBTV’s Action Tracks by Chris Parrish. The segment takes you inside our Circleville, Ohio headquarters for a look at what happened at this year’s Open House, along with some behind the scenes on the setup of the event. This year’s Open House had a great turn out with plenty of our friends from the Monster Truck industry, as well as a number of classic muscle cars and antique pullers. Our friends at Hall Brothers Racing brought the Raminator ride truck which was a huge hit with kids and adults alike, as the proceeds from the rides were donated to local children’s communities. The segment also features interviews with Bobby Holman (Beast), Cody Holman (Son Of Beast), and of course Dan Patrick. Check out the segment below courtesy of TheMonsterBlog.com! Read more →

We plan to have these available at our upcoming PEI / Samson Open House on October 4th for those that are interesting in purchasing a copy.

As winter has passed it’s time for the monsters to get out side and stretch their legs a bit, and that’s just what the Samson Monster Truck team did this past weekend in Mansfield, Ohio. After a long winter in smaller indoor arenas it was a nice change of pace to compete outside. Even nicer, was getting a chance to compete with Samson close to home in Mansfield, Ohio for Allison Patrick and company. Read more →
