Rockstar Energy Racing's Rob MacCachren INVINCIBLE at '09 MINT 400

Las Vegas, Nevada (March 30, 2009) Rockstar Energy Racing's Rob MacCachren defied the majority of the odds in what may be considered one of the most incredible racing wins in the history of the legendary Mint 400. Facing several hundred competitors, all vying for a piece of the latest 2009 edition of the MINT 400, Las Vegas racer, Rob MacCachren, drove his single-seat Alumi Craft 1600 race car to victory among the nation's top 1600 desert racers.

What is so incredible, however, is that the talented MacCachren finished the race in 8th position physically and although the official results have yet to be released, it appears that Rob may have finished 8th overall... all of this in an Alumi Craft limited 1600 race car!

It was a flawless day for the off road racing legend who celebrated his 44th birthday only days before the Mint 400.

MacCachren's solo effort over the roughest terrain ever raced in the United States will go down as one of the Mint 400 classics.

robbapThe early morning start amid some of the most difficult and blinding silt ever experienced by racers, led to a massive pile up of race cars only 4.5 miles off the start. The silt combined with the blinding rising sun tested the ultimate endurance of man and machine. The black 1600 Rockstar Energy Racing single-seat buggy slithered through the carnage and when MacCachren came out of the silt bed unscathed, he was all business.

He never got out of his Mastercraft 3G office chair throughout the nearly 10 hour ordeal and he was in good spirits as he bombed through the desert, passing the competition, all the while communicating with his race team.

"The amount of race vehicles on the course was amazing. After the first lap there were cars and trucks strewn out everywhere. I was surprised by the amount of quality teams sidelined early in the race, but this area north of Las Vegas has not been raced on in over ten years and we expected it to be bad," commented MacCachren at the finish line.

robbap"The Rockstar Energy Racing 1600 buggy was flawless today. I have to thank everyone that is part of this program starting with Rockstar, Alumi Craft and John Cooley who built this car, FOX Racing Shox, BFGoodrich Tires, Kartek, Folts Transmissions, FAT Performance Racing Engines along with all of our associate sponsors that make such great contributions to our single-buggy program. My prep guy, Ian Beaman, did a fantastic job at prepping the car along with Brian Lopez and the crew that supported me on the race course. It's great to win, but this Mint 400 victory is really really sweet."

Rob MacCachren was raised in Las Vegas, Nevada and first attended the Mint 400 race as a young child with his father and grandfather, both desert racers. Following in the footsteps of the elder MacCachren's, the multi-time championship off road racer has staked a big claim in the Mint 400 heritage with his tremendous wild run that will not soon be forgotten.
