Temecula, CALIFORNIA -- Red Bull Off Road Racing and Barlow Motorsports has signed veteran off road racing champion, Rob MacCachren, to race the No.29 Red Bull Pro-2 Ford F-150 for the entire 2007 CORR Series. Rob MacCachren's off road racing career has spanned 20. He has captured numerous off road racing championships in many different series, including CORR, SCORE, BITD and SNORE. He is one of a few off road racers to be named to the American Auto Racing Writers and Broadcasters Association All-American team.
Team owner, Steve Barlow, commented, "We are all very excited about signing championship racer, Rob MacCachren, to the Red Bull Off Road Racing team. Rob will campaign our No.29 Ford Pro-2 truck, while I debut our new Ford Pro-4. Rob is a natural fit to our team and he'll be an integral component to our expanding race team. With the introduction of the new Red Bull Pro-4 less than a month away, having a Pro-4 champion of Rob's caliber involved with our team is certainly going to be a tremendous asset."
Red Bull Off Road Racing will campaign a two-truck team throughout the entire 2007 CORR Series, which features seven weekends of door-to-door off road racing, slated to be televised on NBC Sports the Sunday afternoon, following the live action.
Rob MacCachren won the CORR Pro-4 Championship in 2000 and 2001. "Steve and Red Bull offered me the opportunity to come back into the CORR Series, driving their Pro-2 Ford race truck and I'm honored to accept their invitation. I am very excited to have the chance to represent the professionals involved in Red Bull Off Road Racing, which include many of the same sponsors involved with my desert racing program. BFGoodrich Tires, FOX Racing Shox and Riviera Racing were all excited when this deal came together. Teaming with Steve in a two-truck team for the entire season is a dream come true. Jim Baldwin has taken CORR to a new level here in the West. The new schedule and increased national television exposure is the beginning of pushing off road racing to a nationwide audience and we are very excited about this opportunity," commented MacCachren.
