ROCKSTAR's Rob MacCachren
DEFEATS Huge Field
of 1600 Racers
in SNORE's BATTLE AT PRIMM

Primm, Nevada - Desert racing veteran, Rob MacCachren, kicked off the 2009 1600 racing season with a strong victory after outperforming a huge field of nearly 50 1600 racers in SNORE's season opener, Battle at Primm.

Many of the nation's top 1600 racers converged for the two-day shootout, which continues to grow each year. It is considered as the race 1600 racers do not want to miss.

Battling over 92 miles each day, racers blasted around the difficult 18-mile course for five laps. Set adjacent to some of the most famous landmarks in Southern Nevada, the Primm Valley Casinos, which divide Nevada and California, thousands of fans and racers gathered together to watch the nation's best 1600 racers go head-to-head.

MacCachren debuted his brand new ALUMI CRAFT single-seat 1600 car on Friday afternoon at the Battle at Primm Contingency event amid the cold and wet weather. Parked in the FOX RACING SHOX booth, hundreds of onlookers stopped to view the satin black ROCKSTAR Energy Drink branded 1600 car.

"The new car built by ALUMI CRAFT is great. Sleek, simple and fast. We're looking forward to racing the new car in as many races as possible this season," said a smiling Rob MacCachren.

MacCachren began Saturday's race in the second to last row after SNORE officials made a mistake, which they later apologized for. This forced the savvy desert racing veteran to pass through the majority of the field in order to begin up front in Sunday's final race.

"I'm not sure he ever lifted from the start line," said crew chief Ian Beaman referring to Saturday's race.

"After the third lap, he was mid-pack having passed 20 + cars and then after the fourth lap, he cut that in half. By the final lap, Rob was pushing towards the front of the pack and apparently the car ran pretty good."

Official results released by SNORE timing officials showed the nation's top 1600 racer, Rob MacCachren, had finished Saturday's race in first place, 11 seconds faster than the car that left the line first.

Sunday morning saw near perfect race conditions, as Rob MacCachren rolled out his BFGoodrich Tires shod racecar. The #1603 FAT Performance powered single-seat car lined up on the front row beside Curt Geer, in what turned out to be the best match of the two-day race.

"Neither one of us lifted and we went off the dike jump side-by-side. I looked over and saw him pushing hard and I just ran this car as fast as it would go. FOX Racing Shox has worked closely with me in testing and I knew the car could take anything we punished it with. In the end, it did. The course turned pretty rough in the last few laps, with big ruts in the turns, but the new car is fast. Every time I thought I was making time and starting to pull away, I saw Geer closing in on me. There are a lot of really fast 1600 racers out here and it was a great race, I'm glad we came out on top today," commented Rob.

MacCachren led after the first jump and he never looked back. Each lap he pulled slightly pulled away from the field crossing the finish line for his first 1600 victory of the year.

MacCachren will next race his 1600 car at the SCORE San Felipe 250 after racing the Riviera Racing #3 Trophy Truck in the morning and switching to the 1600 car in the afternoon. Two weeks later, on March 28, 2009, Rob MacCachren will race the historic MINT 400 held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Rob MacCachren is sponsored by ROCKSTAR Energy Drink , BFGoodrich Tires, ALUMI CRAFT, FOX RACING SHOX, Fat Performance, Dave FOLTS Transmission, KARTEK, Pro-AM, Mastercraft Race Seats and Nevada OFFROAD Buggy.
