ROCKSTAR Energy Drink’s Rob MacCachren finished second in series points in both SCORE International’s Trophy Truck class and Lucas Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) Pro2 Unlimited in 2011. Anyone who has ever met Rob Mac knows that he doesn’t settle for second place though; his unyielding drive to be the best is how he has accumulated an astounding 192 career victories in the desert and short course. For 2012 MacCachren is pulling out all the stops, and after wins in Laughlin and San Felipe he is leading SCORE International points in the premier Trophy Truck class. MacCachren is also fresh off the Trick Truck win with teammate Steve Sourapas at last weekend’s Mint 400.
All of this success in the desert has not distracted MacCachren from short course racing though. Rob has an entirely new Pro2 Unlimited truck for 2012 built in-house by the talented Dave Farruggia and Jim Blackmore. The new truck is lower and lighter yet retains all of the advantages offered by Fox Racing Shox and BFGoodrich Tires. Also new for 2012 is the addition of Makita Power Tools as a team sponsor. “To compete at the highest levels of competition you need all of the pieces of the puzzle,” MacCachren explained. “I couldn’t be happier; Makita is a perfect fit for our team.”
