MacCachren Sets Sail In St. Louis
ST. LOUIS – After the first five events primarily on the west coast, the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks traveled to the Edward Jones Dome for a night of urban off-road action.
Rob MacCachren, driving the No. 21 Traxxas truck, made a late race pass to en route to capturing his third SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks win of the season.
The 18-Lap SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks final began from a staggered start and saw first place starter Arie Luyendyk Jr. of Scottsdale, Ariz., jump out to the early lead ahead of SST newcomer Keegan Kincaid.
On lap two, the No. 25 Team Arie truck would find trouble completing just one of the corners and slipping back multiple positions. Kincaid would inherit the lead in front of Iron River, Mich., native Nick Baumgartner.
Trouble would find Justin Lofton on Lap-5 as the driver of the Lofton Cattle No. 6 would roll his truck over on the roof.
Kincaid driving the No. 47 Traxxas truck would get crossed up on the restart, allowing Baumgartner to slide by into the top position. Baumgartner’s lead did not last for long as the 15-year old Sheldon Creed would race his No. 74 past Baumgartner just one lap later.
Coming over the finish line jump on lap eightCreed would land awkwardly, causing him to drive off track, and collect multiple water barriers handing the lead over to MacCachren.
