Potawatomi Governor's Cup
Rob MacCachren likes Crandon. Crandon like Rob MacCachren. Going into Sunday's Governor's Cup race, MacCachren knew he was ready to make track history. No one has won consecutive Governor's Cups. Making history seems to agree with the MacCachren Motorsports team.
With CORR's Pro-2 (2-wheel drive) division gridded 100 yards in front of all Pro-4 entries, the MacCachren Motorsports #21 truck was the 3rd race vehicle to the 1st corner. Following Pro-2 entries Carl Renezeder and fellow Ford teammate Scott Taylor, MacCachren quickly showed Crandon race fans why Rob MacCachren is the 'King of Off-Road'.
MacCachren quickly passed Renezeder within the 1st lap only to catch the first place truck, Taylor, on the next lap. With 8 of 10 laps remaining, MacCachren continued on to win the race and go into Crandon's record books as being the first to win back-to-back Governor's Cups. "Crandon is a track that you have to respect. Yet, when you attack it and win - you truly feel like you have accomplished a goal. I have to thank the town, the track, my team and my sponsors for making all of this possible. I have said it before but I will say it a million more times . . . Crandon International Raceway is the absolute best! Thank you."
