CBS Sports Spectacular will feature Lucas Oil Challenge Cup presented by Toyota showcasing the most chaotic racing action ever televised. Class on Class racing pairs ProLite VS ProBuggy and the culminating event of the Lucas Oil Off Road Series; PRO-2 VS. PRO-4 – the “Super Bowl” of Off Road Short Course Racing. This event puts up the richest payday in the sports history with $123,000 up for grabs.

ProLite VS. ProBuggy
A field of 26 vehicles made up of 13 Trucks and 13 Buggies racing for 19 laps on the same track for the same prize, sets the table for pure action oriented entertainment. #38 Brian Deegan coming off as the 2011 ProLite Champion and 2011 PRO-2 Champion is looking to cap off a marvelous season with a chance to win both Lucas Oil Challenge Cup Events. Can he pull off the impossible double-duty feat? Deegan barely edged out rival #82 Chris Brandt in the Championship who has been a serious factor all year. ProLite Truck drivers #19 Cory Sisler and #2 Casey Currie should be noted as a threat even though the Buggies have held the title for two years running. Be on the lookout for 2010 ProBuggy Champion, Cameron Steele, who parked his truck for the #17 Buggy, and then there is 2011 ProBuggy Champion #8 Mike Porter, the 2010 Challenge Cup Winner #96 Doug Fortin, and finally off road specialist #19 Justin “Bean” Smith who took the 2011 ProBuggy Rookie of the Year Title. All of these contenders will be driving their wheels off hoping to claim the $20,000 Winner’s Purse.

At the end of another year of racing, Rob MacCachren has racked up five wins in fourteen rounds of Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS).  Perhaps even more impressive is that LOORRS is only one of three series that MacCachren competes in.  He was also victorious at three TRAXXAS The Off Road Championship (TORC) races and had two wins (in only five races) in SCORE desert racing.  Still, perhaps the most important race of the year is yet to come.  “This is the biggest pay day in short course,” MacCachren noted of the Lucas Oil Challenge Cup, “and I want my piece of it.”  $30,000 is on the line as Rob pits the No. 1 ROCKSTAR Energy Drink / BFGoodrich Tires / MasterCraft Safety truck not only against his normal Pro2 Unlimited competition, but the Pro4 Unlimited 4WD trucks are on the same course as well.  MacCachren is no stranger to cup ra ces, having won three Borg Warner Cups during his prestigious short course career.

If you are in Phoenix this weekend Firebird International Raceway is the place to be for the most exciting racing on the planet.  Warm temperatures and clear skies are expected for the final round of LOORRS short course racing on Saturday, December 10th.  Rob Mac is currently second in points in the LOORRS marquee Pro2 Unlimited class and can mathematically still take the title from fellow ROCKSTAR Energy Drink athlete Brian Deegan at the final race of the season.  Stop by MacCachren’s pits for autographs and photos and free samples of ROCKSTAR Energy Drink from the beautiful ROCKSTAR girls.  If you are stuck braving winter instead of enjoying door banging action in Phoenix, watch for updates on MacCachren’s Facebook page at
