MasterCraft Racing is employing some “new math” in their campaign to win a SCORE International desert racing season championship. 20 + 30 = 1 at the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 as No. 30 driver Robbie Pierce will park his Jimco truck and forfeit his fifth place starting position to share driving duties in the No. 20 ROCKSTAR Energy Drink / MasterCraft Safety / BFGoodrich Tires Trophy Truck with eight time SCORE season champion Rob MacCachren. Rob Mac is currently second in the standings to former protégé Bryce Menzies, who clings to a slim six point lead in season points. Should MacCachren and Pierce win the Baja 1000 they will clinch the coveted SCORE Trophy Truck season title as well.
The MasterCraft Racing team of Rob MacCachren and Robbie Pierce will start ninth off the line this Friday, November 18th, shortly after 11:30am PST and the duo will split driving duties across the 692 mile course. While MacCachren and Pierce have been teamed up together for two years under the MasterCraft Racing / Rockstar Energy Drink / BFGoodrich Tires umbrella, this will be the first time the two have ever joined forces and have shared driving duties in the same truck. “When Rob won the Challenge of Champions race, it pretty much solidified our plan to only run one truck at this year’s Baja 1000,” remarked Robbie. “Everyone on the race team, including myself, wants the SCORE International Trophy Truck championship for Rob. With the No. 30 out of the points battle, joining forces and putting all our resouces and efforts behind Rob just seemed like the right plan,” continued Pierce.
This year’s Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 course travels from Ensenada east through Ojos Negros, down Laguna Salada to San Felipe, down through the three legendary washes of Matomi, Huatomote and Chanate, joining familiar routes to the six-mile turnoff before Mike’s Sky Rancho, heading over to the Pacific Coast crossing Highway 1 near San Vicente and to Erendira, then through Santo Tomas, Uruapan and back to Ojos Negros, covering much of the northern half of the majestic Baja California peninsula to and from Ensenada.
If you cannot make it south of the border to attend this year’s Baja 1000, live tracking of all the competitors will be available online through IRC at www.racetheworld.net or through up-to-the-minute updates via RDC at www.race-dezert.com.

Rob MacCachren possesses a rare combination of talent that ranks him among the elite of off-road racing, regardless of the venue. His 25 year racing career includes an unmatched 189 race victories and 20 series championships in both short course and open desert racing. 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, three Governor’s Cups, and been named to the Auto Racing Writers & Broadcasters Association Auto Racing All-America First Team three times in his career.
