The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) heads to Firebird International Raceway in Phoenix this weekend for the final race of the season where the Pro2 Unlimited championship will be decided.  After Rob MacCachren suffered a disappointing weekend in Las Vegas, where he was absent from the podium for the first time of any LOORRS racing weekend this season, he has slipped to third in points behind rivals Brian Deegan and Marty Hart.  Never one to give up, MacCachren intends to put the ROCKSTAR Energy Drink / Makita Tools / BFGoodrich Tires / TRAXXAS team back on podium for the eighth time this season.  Following the final Round 15 of racing on Saturday, both the Pro2 and Pro4 trucks will take to the track for the $30,000 Lucas Oil Off Road Cup. MacCachren is famous for his performances in cup races, with three Governor’s Cups, three Borg-Warner Cups to his credit and a victory at the TORC Chairman’s Cup earlier this season.

The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) returns to Rob MacCachren’s hometown of Las Vegas this weekend for more door-to-door action.  Unlike past events at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the races will be held on Friday and Saturday nights under the lights of the speedway.  With only three rounds of competition remaining, every point counts for MacCachren as he fights for the Pro2 Unlimited season championship.  MacCachren is currently tied for season points with fellow ROCKSTAR Energy Drink / Makita Tools driver Brian Deegan.  In addition to being his in home town, Las Vegas is also where MacCachren earned a first place and second place finish last season.

MacCachren suffered a devastating crash last month in Reno, but his crew drove all night from Hemet to get Rob Mac his old championship winning truck to compete on Sunday.    “How lucky am I,” MacCachren asked rhetorically, “to have my title sponsors be an energy drink and a power tool company when me and my team have to work all night long.  We literally could not have raced on Sunday without plenty of ROCKSTAR Energy Drink and the Makita Power Tools in our hands.” Jim Blackmore and Dave Farrugia are now working feverishly to get the damaged truck ready for this weekend’s race in Las Vegas.  Will they make it in time?  No one knows! The only way to find out is to come out to Las Vegas Motor Speedway and see for yourself.

Foothill Ranch, Calif. – Set against the uniquely sculptured and dramatic backdrop of Oakley’s world headquarters, the finest off-road motorsports performances of last season were toasted at the annual Dirt Sports magazine “Driver of the Year Honors” celebration hosted by Amsoil, KMC Wheel, Oakley, Red Bull and Ryan Communications Group (RCG).

In the most difficult and closely contested Driver of the Year voting since the awards were established in 2005 (for the 2004 season), Dirt Sports gave top 2011 honors to Bryce Menzies. Menzies, a 24-year old racer from Las Vegas, managed the nearly incomprehensible feat of claiming two very distinctive championships; the Traxxas TORC Pro 2 unlimited short course title and the SCORE desert series Trophy-Truck crown. Both categories are considered the pinnacle in their respective forms of off-road motorsports.

Fort Mill, SC – The 2011 off-road season boasted some incredible racing and General Tire’s Justin Davis certainly contributed to those moments. Davis’ stand-out performances in the SCORE series have garnered him the distinction of being named Dirt Sports Rookie of the Year for 2011. The 18-year-old Davis was also nominated for the Dirt Sports Driver of the Year award. The youngster joins General Tire’s Carl Renezeder as a recipient of the annual Dirt Sports awards.

“Our hats are off to Justin Davis for his superb 2011 season and well-deserved Rookie of the Year award,” said Travis Roffler, director of marketing for General Tire. “We’re extremely proud that Justin had zero flats on his General Tire’s in 2011. We look forward to supporting Justin as his career grows and we will continue to provide quality products that will enable him to win many more races, championships and awards.”

“It’s really cool to win the Dirt Sports Rookie of the Year award,” said Davis. “I can’t thank General Tire enough for their support last year. We’re here to win and that’s what we are focused on going into 2012. With sponsors like General Tire supporting us, we should have a good chance at having another great year.”
