After racing and competing against the best riders in the nation, Sean began to explore opportunities to race at a higher level that would keep him out of the hospital. Through 2009 and 2010 Sean advanced to an Unlimited Prolite truck to compete in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. Sean has been called “the hottest driver in the series” by the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series in 2010.
Sean’s list of accomplishments also includes multiple podium finishes and Rookie of the year and an endorsement deal with LOSI RC Vehicles to have a Sean Geiser LOSI Edition RC Truck and Rally Car that is available internationally. Sean has spent the last few seasons as a driver for the world famous Geiser Bros., the global leader in off road race truck racing and manufacturing. His versatile talent, which translates to any race car, has created broad international appeal with media and fans. Sean is now bringing his passion and personality to the Global RallyCross Championship and X-Games RallyCross with one goal: To win in the fastest growing racing series in the US and compete for a driver championship in a top-level racing series.
Modeled after the popular European sport of rallycross, the Global RallyCross Championship pits drivers against each other for side-by-side racing on surfaces that vary from dirt, asphalt and a 70-foot gap jump. Some call it the four-wheeled version of SuperCross. The sport features high-flying extreme competition between cars that are relevant to today’s youth. Competitors progress through a series of timed heats to the final race where winner takes all. Multiple drivers start at once and fight for position in the final four-lap race. The GRC takes the best attributes of circuit, off-road, and rally racing that results in intense competition in venues that are fan-friendly while providing sponsors with an ideal marketing platform appealing to today’s millennial consumers allowing for an ROI not found in other motorsports.
Sean is managed by Drive Motorsports International.
