King Krunch

Driven by: David Smith

The 2001 racing season was his first full season. He worked to find his own driving style which also helped find the weak points in the truck. The team worked hard to improve the strength and reliability of King Krunch 14.

In May of 2002, David and owner, Nels Wickander, decided to expand the team to a two truck race team. King Krunch 15 made it’s debut at the 2002 Wings Over Houston Air Show.

The 2003 racing season has been David’s best and busiest yet. They easily doubled the number of appearances from those done the year before and in March, David was named Clear Channel Motorsports’ Most Improved Driver.

David is constantly fine tuning and looking for ways to improve KK15 so look for even bigger things to happen in the coming years.

Driven by: Eric Swanson

When Eric was 11 years old he got to experience what it was like to drive his Dad’s Monster truck. He even got to drive over cars! Everyone was impressed that an 11 year old could maneuver such a big machine skillfully. We made sure all safety precautions were in place. For his twelfth Birthday we gave him a trophy kart. We had it painted and wrapped to match Obsession. He has done numerous events in it for all different promoters. They have had him freestyle at monster truck events and he is the only trophy truck to have cleared three cars!
