Riviera Racing® and Rob MacCachren Join Forces for 2007 Season "Domination in the Desert"

Laguna Hills, CALIFORNIA -- Mark Post, team owner and driver of the #3 Riviera Racing Monarch Grand Vacations BFGoodrich Tires Ford F150 Trophy Truck, announced today that world-class off road racing champion, Rob MacCachren, has joined his team for the entire 2007 desert racing season.

"Rob and I have been in dialogue for quite some time and it's time for Riviera Racing to take our program to a new level. We're excited to have him on our team. Rob has long been considered one of the most talented drivers in the desert. We will share driving duties throughout the entire season and his partnership with the team brings a likelihood of success. Racing trophy trucks is 30 - 40% driver and 30 -- 40% race truck prep, while the rest is luck. Riviera Racing is a team effort. Crew Chief Jim Blackmore does a great job. Rob and I are part of the players in this team and we're all about winning," said a smiling Mark Post.

For 25 years, Rob MacCachren has been a fierce competitor in any class he's raced. Always a race favorite, the three-time AARWBA All-American Rob MacCachren, has compiled four career SCORE Trophy-Truck race wins and was crowned the 1994 SCORE Trophy-Truck point's champion.

MacCachren has compiled a total of seven SCORE championship seasons in his career beginning in 1989, 1990, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995 and through to 2001.

Rob MacCachren's move to Riviera Racing represents a new era for a team that has excelled in the desert for nearly 15 years. Riviera Racing is scheduled to race the #3 Ford F150 Trophy Truck at both of the nation's premier desert racing series, SCORE Desert Series and the Best in the Desert Silver State Series.
