At the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) season opener at Firebird International Raceway last month, ROCKSTAR Energy Drink driver Rob MacCachren was mired in controversy. Despite his reputation as a squeaky-clean racer, MacCachren was stripped of his third place finish after contact with Brian Deegan during the first round of LOORS racing. “I don’t agree with the decision that was made,” MacCachren explained, “but I am not going to dwell on it. I’d rather focus on driving than controversy.” To that end, MacCachren qualified first in the premier Pro 2 Unlimited class for both Saturday and Sunday’s rounds of racing at Firebird in his ROCKSTAR Energy / BFGoodrich Tires / MasterCraft Safety truck. Mechanical failure early in Sunday’s second round of racing required MacCachren to serve his revenge cold. MacCachren will settle for nothing less than the top of the podium at this weekend’s rounds three and four of LOORRS racing at Speedworld Off Road Park.
While he is ranked at 15th in series points after the first weekend of racing, Rob MacCachren has a reputation for coming from behind to victory. Last season MacCachren was victorious in an astounding nine of the fifteen rounds of racing in his ROCKSTAR Energy / BFGoodrich Tires / MasterCraft Safety truck, earning his third Pro2 championship in as many years. MacCachren’s has no intention of resting on his laurels, and already has his sights set on a fourth championship this season. 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.
