Bob talked about it on the live stream, something like a 9.x average per year for 30 years or something like that. 250+ ish.

BFG sponsorship since '91

Various racers abandoned BFG for Toyo Tires (I assume more $$), but RobMac maintained his loyalty

His exemplary race portfolio, plus loyalty, earned some karma -- BFG stepped in as main sponsor (when Makita & Rockstar left)


"Loyalty is my Honor"
-- Waffen SS


Honesty:

Tell the truth, folks. Be honest with yourself and others. People deserve it. Now, if honesty becomes cruelty, then don’t say it! Watch what you say. It is more important to be kind in some situations than brutally honest. Soften your words; be kind. Men, have you ever been put in a position to answer the question, “Honey, do these jeans make my butt look fat?” Yeah, that question! Women, don’t ask this question! It is a lose/lose situation. The question would not be asked if the woman liked her own butt in the first place! It’s a trap question for both of you. I’m having fun but really, tell the truth.

Respect:

Most of us know the golden rule: Whoever has the most gold makes the rules. Just kidding, although that is very true. I am referring to a different golden rule. Heck, if we want, we can go golden or platinum. The golden rule: Treat others as you want to be treated. The platinum rule: Treat others the way they like to be treated. Both rules are great. Just respect each other. When you have respect for yourself, you will have respect for others.

One way to show respect is while you are driving. One morning, I accidentally cut someone off and they promptly put their finger out the window and showed me I was number one. I got the one finger salute! All I could think of was how miserable that person must be. It was unfortunate that my little mistake put them in such a huge reckless state. I felt sorry for them. Here’s a great rule to follow: When I am angry, I am stupid. Respect each other and don’t let others who disrespect you pull you into anger.

Loyalty:

I am referring to honoring your commitments here. Loyalty is when you do what you say you are going to do. If we don’t deliver on what we said we were going to do, it causes a small piece of mistrust to build up in others toward us. Eventually, when someone knows they can’t count on you, well, that is pretty much the beginning of the end. If you say you are going to do it, then do it. If you don’t do it, apologize and make it right. Loyalty is about keeping your commitments to yourself and to each other.

Faith:

Trust that God has destined you for greatness. Expect the best out of life. Trust that everything is going to be okay. Trust that whatever is happening at the time, whether good or bad, will somehow serve you for the better in the long run. We all have faith, even if we don’t think we do. Every time you kiss your family goodbye for the day, you are practicing faith that everyone will return home safely.

Courage:

Courage is going after what you want. Courage is stepping up to fear and pushing through it. Courage is going after what you want despite the voice inside telling you not to. We go into this one deeper later on.

Love:

Looking beyond our own various self-interests and performing actions that benefit others is the highest form of character in action. Isn’t unconditional love the ultimate in achieving bliss? To be able to say, “I love you” to those you like is remarkable. To be able to say, “I love you” to those you don’t like or to those you don’t know is the highest form of self-growth there is.

Rob has over 300 off road wins to include the 2 short course series, SCORE, BITD, SODA and several other organizations.
He is the most winning offroad racer in the history of the sport. As of today, he has won every off road race there is in at least 1 class, except for maybe King of the Hammers

It is nearly impossible not to be a fan of Rob. I can't remember the year, but at a BAP race, Rob raced 1600 and there were a ton of entries. He started in one of the last places and passed all but 2 or 3 cars on the first lap or two. The next time he came around, he had a significant lead. Then a couple years later saw him going through some big nasty stuff right by the pit road in Primm in Sourapas TT and he had a rhythm through the big bumps that none of the other drivers had. It was pretty rad.

I’ve still got his autograph from back in 1999 ( Ford Rough Riders days 👍🏻 )

So if you listen close, 261, now 262, wins on BFG tires. Hes won on other tires too that were mandatory by the sanction body of the race, but 30 years on BFGs is an unbelievable accomplishment. That's like 8 race wins a year on BFG.

Shows how much money is in off road racing and whats important to sponsors, or lack of in off-road. No one wants to connect all there offroad trucks and utvs to the real use and supporting it.

One of the things that helped connect me back to off road in the mid-teens was the nostalgia of the MTEG series, and then flipping on a LOORRs race and saying, "Hey, I remember that guy!"

Remarkable racer, still.

Years ago at Laughlin I watched him win 1600, change motors and win another class IN THE SAME CAR. Saw him after the race outside a casino and commented on how great a racer he was. Ask my name and I just told him I was a fan, no name necessary. How bad A$$ is Rob Mac? So much that I designed a poster commemorating his winning the 50th Baja 500. Went to a LOORS race (YEARS LATER) and not only did he sign it for me, but let me take a pic with him. Asked my name and said I was just a fan, no name given again. HE REMEMBERED THE SAME CONVERSATION FROM LAUGHLIN and asked if I was the same guy. He will take time to meet with ANYONE, ANYTIME! Cannot say enough good things about Rob Mac!
