Celebrate 30 Years of Samson at the 4th Annual PEI/Samson Open House

Patrick Enterprises Open House

In the fall of 1983 at the 4 Wheel Drive Jamboree in Indianapolis, Indiana, the Samson Monster Truck, owned and driven by Don Maples of Huntsville, Alabama made its debut. Dan and Chris Patrick purchased the truck and name in 1988. Over the past 30 years, the Samson body has undergone many changes and paint schemes. From Red, to Coors Extra Gold, to Keystone, to American Gladiators with the Arms to Red-White-Blue, to our signature “Samson Blue”. Dan thought he would give the monster truck “thing” a try for a few years and here we are 25 years later still going strong!!

Our Patrick Enterprises Inc / Samson Monster Truck Open House will be held Saturday October 12, 2013 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, 26886 Morris Salem Road, Circleville, Ohio 43113.

Check out our new Samson 30th Anniversary t-shirts that will be available at the Open House and on our website merchandise page www.samson4x4.com/merch.htm

We look forward to this event and hope you all can come celebrate Samson’s 30th anniversary with us!

St. Louis Monster Jam Photos Online!

It was another crazy event at the St. Louis Monster Jam, and Josh Rhodes and Ed Hoormann were on hand for all the action. Two big news items came from the event. First in racing, Chad Fortune took Captain America to a big racing victory over Carl VanHorn in Grave Digger after VanHorn got up on two wheels in the final turn. It was all Grave Digger in freestyle, however, as both VanHorn and Adam Anderson in Grave Digger the Legend stole the show with amazing runs. The similarity in their runs? Each of them launched off of a dirt pad and came down partially on top of Kreg Christenson’s toppled Maximum Destruction truck. All trucks emerged safely afterwards, but the spectacular moments of the night lingered in the mind of drivers and spectators alike as they headed for the exits. Ed and Josh’s full photo galleries from the event are now online! Thanks to both of them and enjoy.
