The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) heads to Firebird International Raceway in Phoenix this weekend for the final race of the season where the Pro2 Unlimited championship will be decided. After Rob MacCachren suffered a disappointing weekend in Las Vegas, where he was absent from the podium for the first time of any LOORRS racing weekend this season, he has slipped to third in points behind rivals Brian Deegan and Marty Hart. Never one to give up, MacCachren intends to put the ROCKSTAR Energy Drink / Makita Tools / BFGoodrich Tires / TRAXXAS team back on podium for the eighth time this season. Following the final Round 15 of racing on Saturday, both the Pro2 and Pro4 trucks will take to the track for the $30,000 Lucas Oil Off Road Cup. MacCachren is famous for his performances in cup races, with three Governor’s Cups, three Borg-Warner Cups to his credit and a victory at the TORC Chairman’s Cup earlier this season.
MacCachren is also fresh off his victory at the Best in the Desert Blue Water Desert Challenge with driver of record Steve Sourapas. While most of the competition competes exclusively in LOORRS, this is just one of many series for the man many consider to be the most talented off-road racer on the planet. MacCachren recently finished second place in the TRAXXAS TORC Pro 2WD series for the second year in a row in his MOPAR RAM, including his 200th win on BFGoodrich Tires at historic Crandon International Raceway on Labor Day weekend. In the desert this season he has earned victories in SCORE International’s Laughlin Desert Challenge and the MasterCraft Safety Tecate San Felipe 250, which he won for the second year in a row. On November 15th he will start third off the line in the No. 20 ROCKSTAR Energy Drink / MasterCraft Safety Trophy Truck on a 1112-mile race down the Baja peninsula in a quest to win the Baja 1000 and earn the SCORE season championship, where he is currently leading in points.

After the races head over to MacCachren’s pit and grab a cold ROCKSTAR Energy Drink and get an autograph.

Rob MacCachren possesses a rare combination of skills that ranks him among the elite of off-road racing, regardless of the venue. His 25 year racing career includes an unmatched 200 race victories and 20 series championships in both short course and open desert racing on BFGoodrich tires. Amongst those victories are 5 SCORE Baja 500 wins and 5 SCORE Baja 1000 victories in the desert, the crown jewel of which was MacCachren’s domination at the 1296 mile run down the Mexican peninsula at the 2007 SCORE Baja 1000. Good things come in threes for MacCachren in short course racing, as the talented driver has won three consecutive series championships, three consecutive Borg Warner Cup races, four Governor’s Cups, and been named to the Auto Racing Writers & Broadcasters Association Auto Racing All-America First Team three times in his career.
