It all comes back full circle as Dawson Rayas finally gets to compete in his hometown show, the Sublimity Harvest Festival, a moment he’s been dreaming of his entire life. Rayas grew up in Sublimity and got his start in monster trucks right here at the festival about six years ago. He helped on the track crew setting up cones and painting lines for the pulling competitions before asking the Basl twins if he could crew for KING KRUNCH and NITRO HORNET.
Rayas says from that moment he was hooked, “The sites, sounds and the feeling you get on a Saturday night with the monster trucks is unlike anything in this world.” The last five years he’s traveled across the US and Canada for multiple monster truck teams. He’s been a crew chief for some of the best in the industry and been able to tour as a driver. This year he’s been given the opportunity of a lifetime, thanks to the Obsession Racing Team, to finally be able to do the one show that has been missing from the last five years of this crazy dream, the Sublimity Harvest Festival. “This year is going to be off the hook, I’m ready to burn it down! I can’t wait to show my hometown what this kid’s got! This one’s for you Sublimity!”
