Chicago’s Route 66 Raceway Unpredictable for ROCKSTAR Energy Racing
Rob MacCachren’s return to Joliet, Illinois Route 66 Raceway was not what the off road racing champion had in mind when he arrived to the great state of Illinois. Since the beginning of the 2010 Traxxas TORC Series Rob MacCachren has earned a podium position in each and every race, but that was not the case on Wednesday night when the 19-time championship season winning racer crossed the finish line.
After leading the race from the first lap, it appeared the Las Vegas off road racing veteran would chalk up another mark in the win column, but as the white flag waved, MacCachren experienced a component failure, which forced him to fall off the lead pace. The 19-time off road racing champion finished the race in 7th position.
