This year has been a rollercoaster ride for ROCKSTAR Energy Drink’s Rob MacCachren.  Injuries, mechanical breakage, and penalties have conspired to thwart Rob Mac’s typical dominance in the desert and on short course tracks across the country.  During the last Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) event at Glen Helen Raceway a rare loss of control saw Rob’s No. 1 ROCKSTAR Energy / BFGoodrich Tires / MasterCraft Safety truck on its roof, resulting in a fractured clavicle that caused severe pain and limited use of his left arm.  Not good for a man who makes his living racing professionally nearly every weekend of the year in three different series.

Last week in Traxxas’ The Off Road Championship (TORC) MacCachren suffered a rollover in his RAM Pro 2WD truck on Wednesday and was taken out of race early on Thursday after qualifying first.  The poor results pushed MacCachren back to fourth in season points.  Most competitors would be thrilled to be fourth in points in TORC’s premier class, but MacCachren set the bar high by winning the first three races of the season in dominating fashion.

If you only remember one thing about Rob MacCachren, remember that he never, ever gives up.  Despite his injury MacCachren recently overalled the SCORE San Felipe Challenge of Champions, racing in oppressive heat across the most brutal terrain in Baja and beating the next closest competitor by an unbelievable nine minutes.  The Fox Racing Shocks on MacCachren’s No. 20 Jimco Trophy Truck made all the difference on the notorious whoops of Zoo Road, and they are just as important on his ROCKSTAR Energy / BFGoodrich Tires / MasterCraft Safety short course truck running over the stutter bumps in Arizona.  Although MacCachren’s LOORRS season got off to a slow start during the first two rounds of racing, he came into Speedworld for Rounds 3 and 4 and absolutely dominated, setting not only fast times in qualifying but winning both rounds of racing.  Speedworld hosts LOORRS racing once again this weekend, and could quite possibly be the location where MacCachren hosts another driving clinic for the Pro2 Unlimited competition.  He currently sits in fourth place in season points with five races remaining.

If you are in the Phoenix metropolitan area you won’t want to miss the LOORRS racing action at Speedworld Off Road Park in Surprise this weekend, as Rob MacCachren attempts to win his fourth consecutive short course season championship.  Stop by MacCachren’s pits for autographs and photos and free samples of ROCKSTAR Energy Drink from the beautiful ROCKSTAR girls.  If you cannot make it to Speedworld, watch for update’s on MacCachren’s Facebook page at:

On Friday, October 7th MacCachren is being inducted into the Off Road Motorsports Hall of Fame, prior to the Off Road Expo in Pomona.  Then on the weekend of October 8-9, Rob’s No. 20 Jimco SCORE Trophy Truck will be on display in the BFGoodrich booth at the Off Road Expo, and Rob will also be leading half hour technical seminars on both days at 11 AM and 2 PM in the BFG booth, with autograph signings for half an hour after each seminar.  This is a rare opportunity to learn from one of off-road racing’s all time best, and one that you absolutely will not want to miss.

RENO, NV— The last bolts are being tightened, the dents and gashes from last race’s crashes repaired, and the drivers itching to be back on dirt chasing the SuperLite Championship Series crown at the Surprise, Ariz. Speedworld Off-Road Park for rounds three and four of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series, April 16 and 17.

Walker Evans Racing’s RJ Anderson and General Tire’s Jeff “Ox” Kargola each jumped to the top of the leader board with their respective wins in the first two rounds of SuperLite racing action. But they’ll have to keep at bay a pack of hungry racers, including Torchmate’s CJ Greaves — Dirt Sports Magazine’s Rookie of the Year for 2010 — Dawson Kirchner, Jessie Johnson (brother of NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson) and SiriusXM radio host Jason Ellis. skateboarder and MMA fighter

Yokohama Tires-backed Pat Clark and Kawasaki’s Chad George, who finished second and third respectively in the first round of the series, will pull out all the stops in their plight to conquer the Speedworld Off Road Park podium.

The highly competitive field will put on a horsepower-and-adrenaline-fueled show for the fans, trading paint, mashing fenders and jostling fiercely for position in the crowded and talented 2011 SuperLite racing field.

The two Surprise, Ariz. races are the third and fourth contests in a nationally-televised, 16-race series that culminates in the championship in December. SuperLite racing is part of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series.

The big air jumps, carnage-producing corners and fender-to-fender action of SuperLite racing has landed it coverage in CBS, SPEED TV, as well as features in publications that include Maxim, Auto Week and Road and Track.
