Las Vegas’ Rob MacCachren, San Diego’s Andy McMillin and Jason Voss of Gilroy, California, overcame a brutally rugged 1,275-mile course, driving to the overall and SCORE Trophy Truck victory last Friday at the 47th annual Tecate SCORE Baja 1000.

The trio finished the physically grueling race from Ensenada to La Paz in 22 hours, 31 minutes and 27 seconds while averaging 56.64 mph in the No. 11 Rockstar Energy MacCachren Motorsports Ford F-150. The team blew by a field of 237 starters in cars, trucks, motorcycles and ATVs for a victory margin of nearly 29 minutes. The starting grid included 31 starters in the marquee SCORE Trophy Truck division for high-tech, 850hp unlimited production trucks. With 10 checkpoints along the way, it was the longest course in race history for the race in the 21 years it started in Ensenada and finished in La Paz.

Finishing second overall and second in SCORE Trophy Truck was the third-generation desert racing brother duo of Luke McMillin, El Cajon, California, and Dan McMillin, La Mesa, California, with a time of 23:00:08 (55.56 mph) in their new No. 83 Mark Racing Ford F-150.

Completing the SCORE Trophy Truck podium and finishing third overall was the team of Cameron Steele, San Clemente, California/Pat Dean, Las Vegas, who covered the distance in 23:41:18 at an average speed of 54.29 mph in the No. 16 Monster Energy Desert Assassins Chevy Silverado. A veteran racer, who has raced and won his class in several classes, it was Steele’s first podium finish in SCORE Trophy Truck.
