With a career filled with 167 event victories and 19 series championships piloting everything from limited class buggies and stock Ford pickups to Trophy Trucks and the Pro 2 Unlimited trucks, Rob MacCachren is able to pick and choose exactly who he works with. In a tough economy where every racer is fighting for sponsorship dollars, it is an enviable position to say the least. So who exactly does the off-road racing legend choose to endorse? “The choice to align myself with MasterCraft Safety and Rockstar Energy was an easy one,” explains the multiple Baja 1000 and Borg Warner Cup champion. “These companies share my commitment to winning, regardless of whether the venue is desert or short course racing.”
To that end, MacCachren will be piloting the No. 20 Rockstar Energy/MasterCraft Safety Trophy Truck for the entire 2010 SCORE International season, adding to a busy schedule that also includes the Lucas Oil Off Road Series races. MacCachren’s all black Jimco-built Rockstar Energy/MasterCraft Safety Trophy Truck will be 21st off the starting line in the upcoming San Felipe 250, while teammate, Robbie Pierce will be the fourth Trophy Truck to leave the line in his own No. 30 Jimco-built MasterCraft Safety/Rockstar Energy Trophy Truck. MacCachren finished seventh at the first SCORE event of the season in Laughlin, Nevada, where only 28% of the premiere Trophy Trucks completed the course. “Jimco builds such a fast and reliable machine, and now that Rockstar Energy and MasterCraft Safety are providing me a chance to campaign my own truck for the entire SCORE desert racing season, I think that we are a real threat for the season points championship,” MacCachren stated following the race.
“As our product line expands, it is only natural that our race team grows as well” explained MasterCraft Safety CEO, Robbie Pierce. MasterCraft’s latest products include a full-line of performance driving suits, fuel and pit crew fire suits, neck braces, helmet skirts, and elbow and kneepads for pit crew safety and comfort. Available in either SFI 3.2A/1 or SFI 3.2A/5, Mastercraft Safety’s performance driving suits meet and exceed all stated SFI fire protection requirements while providing a comfortable fit and design. Optional hidden-pockets and sewn-in elbow and kneepads make this the first race suit specifically tailored to the unique environmental conditions of desert racing. Their most popular race suit, not coincidently, is the Signature edition, which is the suit of choice for SCORE Champions like Rob MacCachren and BJ Baldwin.
