Mobbin Racing

Sometime ago, I wrote down a really big goal to create and race in an off-road race with my son, Kadin. This goal was huge both mentally and monetarily speaking; to actually give myself permission to dream again and for that dream to become a reality.

I thought about that goal becoming a reality for months, I started asking myself the question, “What would it take”? In this question came the answers, and they came quick.

My desire was to create an environment in which adventure and life’s experiences could assist in learning. Life lessons that would inspire him, motivate him, invigorate him, to want to create himself, faith in himself and others, as well as sportsmanship, competition, the thrill of adventure, a mindset of “I can do this”, the mental capacity to endure, preparedness mindset, and at the same time spend some quality time with him.

It worked, I have been able to spend some amazing time with him, traveling one on one for long hours, preparing ourselves physically and mentally for the race.

I have teared up many times since we started this project, 1st time was driving 7 hours to deliver our car in Phoenix, AZ to get built out. Kadin had fallen asleep and I was in a quiet meditation thinking about the deep love that I have for him as my son. He is such a great young man. I love being a father. I reached over and placed my hand on his back as I teared up with joy and love for him.

All this time together doing all of this has been priceless and at that point we had not even raced. Below is a short video of our experience racing that day.

I hope you enjoy it; it’s fun for us to remember the emotion of that day. Out of 55 other competitors that day we placed 8th. We raced for 160 miles non-stop. It took us 3hrs and 25min.
