MacCachren Flies To Stadium Truck Glory
MacCachren raced the No. 21 Traxxas truck to the Round No. 4 victory ahead of Johnson and third place finisher Robby Gordon.
“Incredible, 2013 SST Round No. 4 Qualcomm Stadium, Robby Gordon and his top notch staff put their heart and soul into this race series with countless hours of preparation,” MacCachren said. “I could not be happier for Mike Jenkins and everyone at Traxxas. My truck was awesome; we had a 2 point advantage SST Championship Points coming into the event, and with the win we increased our lead to 10.
“The track was incredible; we were flying to new heights, distances, gap jumps. SST is way more than way Mickey Thompson use to be in the past. Flying 25-30 ft in the air, I ask myself; ‘Are we really doing this,’ these trucks Robby has built are doing a great job handling the challenges we put them through. These fans, who attended the show tonight, need to spread the word to the off-road and motorsports community and get everyone to come out and enjoy the show.”
Apdaly Lopez manged to shake the mechanical woes of the previous two races to take the lead on Lap 7 en route to taking his first SST win in the 12-lap SUPER Buggy final.
Phil Bollman and Cole Belio started the 12-lap SUPER Buggy final and raced around the challenging course.
Rick Welch made contact with another driver and became stalled on top of the k-rail entering the sand. Bollman was in control of the fast paced race, until a tangle with Eddie Tafoya and Eric Jacobus in the hairpin caused Bollman to slip back to the sixth position. Lopez managed to steer away from the collision and drive into the lead.
Bollman would find trouble again on final lap flipping over and stalling Tafoya in the sand. Lopez drove away to capture the win over Eric Jacobus and third place finisher Michael Ward.
