MacCachren Claims Super Truck Opener
MacCachren, raced the No. 21 Traxxas truck to victory in convincing fashion ahead of Mattney and Orange, Calif. native Robby Gordon.
In the SUPER Buggy feature Tafoya, of Chino Hills, Calif., was able to overcome a broken left front suspension and a late race charge by Robb Harvey, of Glendora, Calif. to race his way to victory in the ultra quick paced Stadium Buggy final.
Adrian Cenni, of South Hampton, N.Y. paced the field to green jumping out to ever so brief lead before spinning in turn one and scattering buggies in all directions behind. Tafoya took benefit from the stalled Cenni machine working his way past and stretching out to an early lead. Larry Foddrill battled with Tafoya for multiple laps before getting into the water barriers losing multiple positions.
The race came down to a last-lap shootout as Harvey was able to catch the ill handling Tafoya machine. The two went side-by-side with multiple calls with Tafoya prevailing to take the checkered flag ahead of second place finisher Harvey and third place Rob Martensen.
Other winners included Darren Migues driving Bounty Hunter over Larry Swim’s SPEED Energy Bigfoot in the Monster Truck division; Myles Cheek, bested 16 competitors in the SUPER Trophy Kart division.
