Surprise, Arizona was the location of Rounds 3 and 4 of Lucas Oil Off Road Racing (LOORRS) this weekend, but no one was surprised when ROCKSTAR Energy’s Rob MacCachren overwhelmed the competition. MacCachren has posted the fastest qualifying time for every Pro 2 Unlimited short course race this season, but was unable to convert that success into a win in the first two rounds of racing. That all changed when the defending Pro 2 champion piloted his ROCKSTAR Energy / BFGoodrich Tires / MasterCraft Safety truck to victory at Speedworld Off Road Park this weekend.
This isn’t to say that the victory in Round 3 came easy. MacCachren started on the second row due to the inverted start, but quickly moved up to second place and held that position for the first half of the race, fending off Carl Renezeder. During the second half of the race, MacCachren turned his attention to the only driver in front of him: Marty Hart. MacCachren and Hart battled back and forth for the lead in door-to-door action that brought the packed grandstands at Speedworld Off Road Park to their feet. On the final lap, MacCachren took the lead for good, taking the checkered flag in his ROCKSTAR Energy / BFGoodrich Tires / MasterCraft Safety truck.
Sunday’s Round 4 racing action was not as close, but the outcome was the same. After qualifying first once again, MacCachren jumped out to an early lead and led the whole race, leaving the other 20 drivers to fight over for second place as MacCachren tallied up his 182nd career victory off-road and set the fast lap for the second day in a row. His short course career accomplishments include winning three consecutive Borg-Warner Championships and three Governor’s Cup Championships at the legendary Crandon International Raceway, all accomplished on BFGoodrich tires.
ROCKSTAR Energy’s Rob MacCachren’s packed schedule will take him to Rounds 5 and 6 of LOORRS racing at Glen Helen Raceway on May 21st and 22nd before heading to the Traxxas TORC season opener at Red Bud the following weekend, and then the SCORE International Baja 500 on June 3rd through 5th.
