MacCachren Sets Sail In St. Louis
The red flag would fly for Adrian Cenni on lap 10 as he would crash hard into the face of the landing coming over the finish line jump. Cenni would be alright, but his truck sustained enough damage to side line him for the rest of the event.
The restart saw Kincaid make a move to the inside of MacCachren for the lead, but would come to a halt coming to the finish line.
Eight place starter Robby Gordon would capitalize on Kincaid’s misfortune by working his way past MacCachren on lap 12 over taking the lead.
Gordon would lead the next two circuits before bicycling his truck coming to complete lap 14. The problems did not end there as Gordon’s motor would start to encounter problems in the remaining laps.
MacCachren went on to take the No. 21 Traxxas truck to a Round No.6 victory over of Gordon and Nick Baumgartner.
With the victory MacCachren moved back into the points lead by 22 points.
“We got our points lead back from Robby and need to try to increase it as much as we can.” MacCachren said. “After the heat my truck was making a real clunking noise and we couldn’t locate what it was. The call was made to change the transmission and the drive shaft. I need to thank the SST and Traxxas guys for working hard and getting that all changed. These SST races are such a good time, everyone is high fiving afterwards and I’m really having so much fun racing in this series. There are only more good things to happen.”
