ROCKSTAR Energy Drink / Makita Power Tools’ Rob MacCachren Heads To Utah This Weekend For LOORRS Racing
Rob MacCachren has a score to settle this weekend in Tooele, Utah at Miller Motorsports Park. “The Utah fans are great, and I love the facility.” MacCachren explains. “Last year we couldn’t shake the gremlins though and I am coming back this year intent on giving the fans their money’s worth.” MacCachren was the fast qualifier for both rounds of 2011 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) short course races at Miller Motorsports Park, but mechanical issues forced him to finish mid-pack in both instances.
The state-of-the-art Miller Motorsports facility features paved pits, a 4.5 mile road racing course, and an auto museum on the premises. The short course track is just under a mile long, with large banked turns and the fastest straightaways of all the LOORRS tracks, plus a mammoth table top jump and a six-pack rhythm section. Covered grandstands provide shade and a view of the entire course. As with all LOORRS events, access to the pits on race weekend is open to the public and included with every ticket purchase.
“This year we have everything in place to win in Utah,” MacCachren went on to state. After six rounds of LOORRS racing Rob Mac is currently second in season points after six races that include two victories and two more podium finishes in the premier Pro2 Unlimited class. The success of MacCachren’s all new ROCKSTAR Energy Drink / Makita Power Tools / BFGoodrich Tires truck can be attributed to innovative suspension components from Fox Racing, Pro Am Racing Products, and FK Rod Ends. Over 800 horsepower is fed to the BFGoodrich tires from the Patton Racing engine through the RDE transmission.
If you are in the Salt Lake City area you won’t want to miss the live racing action at the beautiful Miller Motorsports Park. Remember to come by the ROCKSTAR Energy Drink / Makita Power Tools team pits to get Rob’s autograph or just get a cold ROCKSTAR Energy Drink from one of the beautiful ROCKSTAR girls. After the racing is over on Sunday there is even the possibility of taking home fiberglass from Rob’s ROCKSTAR Energy / Makita Power Tools / BFGoodrich Tires truck!

MacCachren’s busy race schedule surpasses his LOORRS competitors with off-road racing nearly every weekend of the year. Last weekend he won the TRAXXAS TORC Series Forest County Potawatomi Chairman’s Cup at Crandon International Raceway in his No. 21 MOPAR RAM. Beating out all thirteen Pro 2WD and Pro 4WD competitors let Rob take home the win in front of 15,000 race fans for his fourth Cup victory at Crandon. Rob is also currently the points leader in SCORE International’s Trophy Truck class with his No. 20 ROCKSTAR Energy Drink / MasterCraft Racing truck and tied for first in points in the Best in the Desert series as well, where he shares driving duties with Steve Sourapas.
