Rob MacCachren came to Firebird International Raceway for the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) season finale looking to add a sixth win in the 15 round series. He qualified third on Friday, putting him on the second row for Saturday’s last points race of the season. Rob Mac was out front in the ROCKSTAR Energy Drink / BFGoodrich Tires / MasterCraft Safety truck and set the fast lap for the race. He was well on his way to yet another victory when Brian Deegan dove under MacCachren in Turn 3 late in the race and put Rob on his roof. Deegan was black flagged for his actions and moved to the back of the pack, but the damage had been done and Rob limped around the track to finish mid-pack. Rob Mac’s five victories in Pro2 Unlimited are more than any other competitor, but incidents like Saturday’s resulted in some uneven finishes this season that caused MacCachren to finish second in points.
MacCachren’s veteran crew worked past midnight on Saturday to prepare his truck for the $30,000 Lucas Oil Challenge Cup race on Sunday afternoon. MacCachren started on the fifth row next to Brian Deegan in the cup race that pitted Pro2 Unlimited and Pro4 Unlimited trucks against each other for a 25 truck battle royal. Rob has significant cup experience with three Borg Warner Cup titles to his credit, so he patiently stayed out of the fracas while trucks flipped and disintegrated around him. Late in the race he was looking to strike when hard contact from Jeff Geiser put Rob Mac’s truck into limp mode. He coaxed the injured steed around the track to finish out of the money in seventh place.
The off-season for Rob MacCachren is short as he prepares for the SCORE International season opener in Laughlin, Nevada on January 15th, where he will drive the No. 20 ROCKSTAR Energy Drink / MasterCraft Safety / BFGoodrich Tires Jimco Trophy Truck. Rob will also be back for the full 2012 LOORRS season, where he has a score to settle with some of his Pro2 Unlimited competitors.
