MacCachren Motorsports Will Not Rest
LAS VEGAS - - - With the CORR Series Pro-4 Championship title wrapped up, one would think it was time for the busy MacCachren Motorsports crew to take a rest. That is not true. If anything, this next month may be the busiest for the team who is on the verge of making off-road history.
Rob MacCachren secured the CORR Pro-4 title mid-September. This is MacCachren's second consecutive championship title as well as his second consecutive Governor's Cup claim (3rd total - 1995, 2000, 2001) and his third consecutive Borg Warner Championship title. With these titles alone, MacCachren stands above most off-road racers as staging an almost perfect race season. But there are other wins and championships that place MacCachren in a unique position.
With only one race to go in each of the SCORE, SNORE, and Best in the Desert race series, MacCachren is poised to win two overall championships and four class championships on one year - more than anyone EVER has done in off-road history. MacCachren also carries the distinction of leading all Series competed in (CORR, SCORE, BITD, SNORE) from the first race onward.
MacCachren won the team's first CORR race in Antigo, WI in May 2000. Since that Saturday, MacCachren led the points chase throughout the 2000 and 2001 CORR seasons. Couple that feat with claiming both the Governors Cup and the Borg Warner trophy two years in a row - MacCachren Motorsports leads the way in placing themselves in the CORR record books. MacCachren Motorsports has won 22 of 38 CORR events in the past two years.
In the SCORE Series, the MacCachren/Fraley ½-1600 duo have an 11 point lead over fellow Las Vegan Troy Herbst for the Overall Points Championship and a 39 class point lead over ½-1600 competitor Kash Vessels. Placing 1st in the Series first 2 events, a 2nd at the Baja 500 and another 1st at the recent Primm race, MacCachren enters the Baja 1000 with a mission to win another SCORE championship - the most recent one being the inaugural Trophy Truck championship in 1994.
The SNORE series stages 6 events in 2001. The MacCachren/Fraley ½-1600 team has won each of the first 4 races, placed 5th in Caliente, and enters the final SNORE Ramada 250 in November with a 143 point Overall lead over Jeremy Gubler and a 465 class point lead over ½-1600 driver Bryan Freeman.
Finally, MacCachren Motorsports team owner Rob MacCachren enlisted the support of Steve Olliges to co-drive the Ford Ranger 2002 4x4 Edge in the Best in the Desert Series. MacCachren/Olliges lead the 7300 class with a 59 point lead over Steve Williams. Olliges has done an exceptional job in his co-driving responsibilities.
- The MacCachren Motorsports CORR Pro-4 Ford F-150 and the Best in the Desert Ford Ranger Edge 2002 4x4 were both displayed at the recent Off-Road Expo held October 6 & 7 at the Pomona Fairplex.
- Rob MacCachren will be featured on RPM2Nite this Wednesday, October 17th. MacCachren will speak about his 2001 championship season. Please check your local listings for exact time.
