MacCachren, McMillin Win 48th Bud Light SCORE Baja 1000

Staying consistent and relatively conservative, the desert racing of Las Vegas’ Rob MacCachren and San Diego’s Andy McMillin overcame a typically challenging 821.38-mile course and more than 200 competitors, driving to the overall and SCORE Trophy Truck victory last Friday at the 48th annual Bud Light SCORE Baja 1000. The duo finished the race that started and finished in Ensenada in 15:58:33 while averaging 51.41 mph in the No. 11 Rockstar Energy MacCachren Motorsports Ford F-150. In winning the race for the second straight year, they defeated a field of 239 starters in cars, trucks, UTVs, motorcycles and quads, but needed a little assist at the end to pull it out. Finishing second physically, the review of the data loggers and subsequent penalties gave MacCachren his eighth class win and third overall title in this race and McMillin his fifth overall and finish class win in this event. The starting grid included 31 starters in the marquee SCORE Trophy Truck division for high-tech, 850hp unlimited production trucks.
