All-time co-leader in SCORE Trophy Truck race wins with 11 (with Las Vegas brothers Ed and Tim Herbst), Las Vegas’ MacCachren, 48, has won eight SCORE season class point championships, including two in the marquee SCORE Trophy Truck division and he has been voted six times to the All-America motorsports teams by members of the American Auto Racing Writers & Broadcasters Asociation (AARWBA).
A versatile racer with over 200 career race wins, MacCachren has also won season titles in other desert series as well as in both short course and stadium off-road racing. MacCachren drives the No. 20 Rockstar Energy MacCachren Motorsports Ford F-150 SCORE Trophy Truck in the SCORE Desert Series. MaCachren is one of the all-time winningest car/truck racers in the history of the sport.
MacCachren opened the 2013 SCORE season with a third place finish in last month’s Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 in Mexico where he debuted his new Geiser Bros-built Ford F-150 SCORE Trophy Truck.
MacCachren’s next race in the SCORE Desert Series will be the 45th Annual Tecate SCORE Baja 500, to be held May 30-June 2, in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico.
In the Tecate SCORE Baja 500, where this year SCORE will celebrate its 40th anniversary as promoter of the popular summertime classic, MacCachren has five class wins including one in SCORE Trophy Truck back in1996. In 2008, MacCachren, racing as a second driver with Mark Post, finished just seven seconds behind race winner B.J. Baldwin, in the closest finish in the history of the race.
After winning two of the first three SCORE races in 2012, MacCachren experienced mechanical difficulties in last year’s Tecate SCORE Baja 500 and finished in 11th place out of 36 starters.
Olliges, 49, who is a two-time SCORE season class point champion (Stock Full in 1994 and 1996), is a second-generation Ford dealership owner in Southern Nevada and a champion in other desert racing series as well. Currently he races in an unlimited truck in the BiTD Series with veteran racer John Swift. Both from Las Vegas, Olliges and MacCachren are life-long friends and grew up racing against each other and often dreamed of one-day having their own SCORE Trophy Truck team.
Besides MacCachren and Olliges, other guests scheduled this week along show host George Antill are SCORE’s Roger Norman with his ‘pit stop’ segment as well as the regular Tech Tips segment which again this week feature SCORE co-tech director Art Savedra, who is also from Las Vegas.
