ROCKSTAR'S Rob MacCachren RETURNS TO CRANDON INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY in Search of Another BRUSH Run CUP

Crandon, Wisconsin - The last time Rob MacCachren raced at the world famous Crandon International Raceway was 2001. For the last eight years, many of the nation's top racers have churned up the dirt and rocks in search of the magic that MacCachren discovered at this 40 year old race course. To date, no one has established the winning record that MacCachren has over his 8-year span at the legendary raceway.

Crandon International Raceway is often regarded as the "Indianapolis Raceway" of the off road racing world. For the last four decades, the world of off road racing has seen the best of the best arrive to this track in search of "the magic," while many have gone home with nothing but mud and dirt covering every part of their trucks. Rob MacCachren captured his first CUP victory in the spring of 1995, when the young off road racer took the world of off road by surprise and claimed the first of six CUP victories. To date, the Rockstar Energy Racing driver has won three Brush Run Chairman's CUP victories (1995, 2000, 2001) as well as three Borg-Warner World Championship CUP wins (1999, 2000, 2001) while racing in the elite PRO4WD class at the famed track.

In 1999, MacCachren set the fastest track time in the Borg-Warner Championship time trials with a time of 1:26:12.

MacCachren is the only racer since track records were established in 1970 to hold six total CUP victories, when combining the Brush Run and Borg-Warner Shootout races.

Now a decade later, Rob MacCachren returns to Crandon International Raceway in search of victory, as Crandon International Raceway kicks off a year of celebration, as they prepare for the 40th Anniversary of this legendary track during the fall race. "Crandon has always been a race track where my team has had great success. It's exciting to return to Crandon after an eightyear absence. I've missed it and we are glad to return with the #11 Rockstar Energy Racing Pro 2WD for a memorable weekend of racing. We've worked hard on the truck and we expect to be a contender all weekend long. This venue is the best in the world and the fans are great. We have posters, shirts and more, so we want all of the Rockstar fans to come into the pits for a autograph," said MacCachren.

This weekend is the third stop in the 2009 TORC season series and will feature Rounds 5 and 6 that kick off the Midwest swing of the season. TORC will bring all the superstars of off-road racing to Crandon International Raceway this season - the 40th anniversary at the track.

"If you like big-time off-road racing - and you like autographs, Crandon is the place to be," said Cliff Flannery, Crandon Track President. "All the young guns of off-road racing, all the well-known superstars will be in town June 20-21," he said. "Bring a lot of pens and markers," he said. "From Ricky to Rhonda, Mason to MacCachren, Frana to Fortin ... you can meet them all."
