Whether people agree over a loop race or point to point everyone can agree that this year’s Bud Light SCORE Baja 1000 was one of the toughest races in recent years. The degree of difficulty was unanimous through out all the drivers.

Rob MacCachren and Andy McMillan battled through the 828.38 miles and came out victorious. They battled the tough terrain, silt, and dry lake beds of Baja and succeeded in doing so. MacCachren drove to race mile 470 and Andy McMillin finished the remainder of the race.

Rob MacCachren said after the race, “We started off running a good conservative pace. This morning was really slow and Ricky Johnson (second driver for Justin Matney) started first but he knew he had control of the race and he was going pretty slow. It was pre-run speed but it helped us with gas mileage so we were going to stretch our first pit to 200 miles.”

“Ricky went out on the beach and the pace picked up a little bit. Unfortunately I got a right-rear flat and lost a couple of spots. We worked our way back up to Carlos Lopez’s dust and we had to pull into our pit which allowed Cameron Steele to get by and that hurt us. The sun was getting ready to set, the wind stopped and the dust was hanging,” MacCachren continued.

“Winning the Bud Light SCORE Baja 1000 is like no other feeling in the world. When you win this race you know that you’ve accomplished something. We’ve got a very powerful team between the two of us and we both know how to win the race and the guys who work on the truck do what it takes,”MacCachren finished with excitement.

Winning the Baja 1000 in back to back years, it was MacCachren’s 8th Baja 1000 win. He also won in 1992, 1993, 1997, 2001, 2004, 2007, and 2014. With more than half of race entries not finishing the race, MacCachren and McMillan defeated Baja once again.
