ROCKSTAR driver Rob MacCachren started the 2011 Lucas Off Road Racing Series (LOORS) season the same way he ended the 2010 season: fast!  MacCachren qualified first in the premier Pro2 Unlimited class on Friday in his ROCKSTAR Energy / BFGoodrich Tires / MasterCraft Safety Ford.  Due to the first two row inversion, Rob started outside of the second row when the green flag dropped.  Displaying the patience that he is famous for, MacCachren waited for mistakes from others to capitalize and move forward through the traffic.  Contact from Brian Deegan unsettled MacCachren’s truck towards the end of the race but Rob was able to maintain his composure.  When the tables were turned and MacCachren got into the back of Deegan though, the latter spun out on the last lap of the race.

The 2010 Lucas Oil Off-Road Series wrapped up last month, but race fans dying to get some action this weekend before football starts are in luck. The Lucas Oil Challenge Cup, presented by Rockstar Energy, will air on CBS Sports Spectacular this Saturday, January 8th, at 1:00 p.m. EST. (10:00 a.m.PST). Be sure to check your local listing, as airtime may be subject to change.

The Lucas Oil Challenge Cup was covered on Off-Road.com back in December, but seeing the action on video is definitely must-see TV. This race occurred after the final round of the regular season as the finale showdown of Lucas Oil Off Road Racing for 2010.  Some of the major racers in the competition include Brian Deegan, Carl Renezeder, Rob MacCachren, Rick Huseman, Kyle LeDuc and more.

Brian DeeganFor those in the automotive industry lucky enough to attend the 2010 SEMA Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, those who made it to the Maxxis booth were able to get a sneak peek of short-course racer and freestyle-motocross legend Brian Deegan unveil the new Deegan vs. Deegan video … or, those who ventured out the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series Rounds 13 and 14 might’ve caught it over the weekend of racing at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
