Most of the 17 professional off-road drivers in Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series’ (LOORRS) premier Pro2 Unlimited class are ecstatic if they ever manage to reach the podium.  ROCKSTAR Energy Drink’s Rob MacCachren holds himself to a higher standard though, constantly striving to be the best at whatever he does.  This iron will has allowed “Rockstar Rob” to earn three consecutive Pro2 Unlimited short course racing championships in as many years.  Coming into last weekend’s racing at historic Glen Helen Raceway, MacCachren was fifth in season points and looking to move forward in the rankings.
During last year’s stop at Glen Helen Raceway for the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS), ROCKSTAR Energy Drink’s Rob MacCachren won both rounds of short course racing and set the fast lap for the weekend in his ROCKSTAR Energy / BFGoodrich Tires / MasterCraft Safety truck.  Coming into the first of two weekends at Glen Helen this season, MacCachren has already established himself as a force to be reckoned with as he has qualified first for every Pro2 Unlimited race this year.  Not only has “Rockstar Rob” put down impressive qualification times, he also claimed the victory during the last two rounds of racing at Speedworld Off Road Park, as highlighted on Youtube.  Will history repeat itself with another clean sweep for Rob Mac?

For the eighth time in a row at a SCORE desert race, FOX Racing Shox earned the top spot among the elite SCORE Trophy Truck class.  With victory at the 2011 San Felipe 250, Rob MacCachren continued the winning ways of SCORE Trophy Trucks equipped with FOX Racing Shox. Baja 1000 Champion, Andy McMillin started the FOX winning streak at the 2009 SCORE Baja 1000. Joining McMillin and MacCachren in the winner’s circle over the past two years are Jesse Jones, Gustavo Vildosola, and Bryce Menzies.

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.

Rob MacCachren has long held a reputation for being a talented driver, the kind of “hired gun” you add to the team to guarantee victory.  Yet despite over 175 event wins and 20 championships, his “hired gun” status also meant that he had never won a SCORE Trophy Truck race as the Driver of Record.  All that changed when MacCachren and co-driver, Cisco Bio, bested a field of 220 worthy competitors at the 2011 MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 in the No. 20 SCORE Trophy Truck sponsored by Rockstar Energy Drink and MasterCraft Safety. “We have knocked on the door and come so close so many times; it is great to finally take home the victory for everyone who has worked so hard to make this program possible.  I didn’t just want this win for myself and the sponsors, I wanted it for the team.” Read More→
