MasterCraft Racing wasn’t necessarily stunned however they were disappointed by the recent announcement that Rob MacCachren’s second place finish at the 2011 SCORE Baja 500 was stripped by SCORE International over a week after the race was completed.  The No. 20 ROCKSTAR Energy Drink / MasterCraft Safety Trophy Truck is accused of stopping along Highway 3 just west of the Villa Del Sol graded road to change a flat tire, however the circumstances are unfortunately not as black and white as the rulebook.  SCORE contends that the tire change is in violation of their rules, which states “Pitting is NOT permitted on any portion of the paved highway surface. The paved highways are considered a restricted area because use of the highways is subject to permission by the Mexican Federal Highway Police.”  SCORE International is required to strictly enforce the above rule in order to stay in compliance with their permits and race licenses from the government of Baja California.

Qualifying at RedBud was canceled due to inclimate weather, and MacCachren drew the second starting position for Sunday’s race.  Rob was able to jump out to an early lead in his new No. 21 Pro 2WD RAM truck for the flag-to-flag win and also earned the Oakley Bomb Award for fastest lap of the race.  “Driving an 800 horsepower rear wheel drive truck is enough of a challenge when it is dry!” MacCachren joked after the race.
