Stronghold Motorsports Brings In A Ringer For Lucas Oil Off Road Racing at Utah’s Miller Motorsports Park
As part of the Stronghold Motorsports race team, motocross superstar Jeremy McGrath is quickly establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with in the Lucas Oil Off-Road Series (LOORS) highly competitive Pro 4 Unlimited class. Unfortunately, scheduling conflicts will force McGrath to miss Rounds 7 and 8 of short course action at Miller Motorsports Park, near Salt Lake City, Utah. So who will Stronghold Motorsports get to fill McGraths sizeable shoes for the June 26th and 27th competition? It would have to be someone up to Stronghold Motorsport’s exacting standards – someone who could maintain the excellence provided by McGrath and teammates Rob Naughton, Marty Hart, and Chuck Cheek.
Driving the Stronghold Motorsports Pro 4 Unlimited truck at Miller Motorsports Park will be none other than three time Borg Warner Cup winner, Rob MacCachren. "This is a great opportunity to have another championship driver as a part of our team – even if it is just for one round. Rob’s reputation as a driver precedes him," stated the confident team owner, Scott Bailey. MacCachren will serve double-duty, campaigning his Rockstar Energy Drink Pro 2 Unlimited truck in addition to the Stronghold Motorsports Pro 4 Unlimited.
Earning back-to-back wins in the Pro 2 Unlimited truck class during Rounds 5 and 6 and also claiming the checkered flag during Sunday’s Round 4 action at Speedworld Motorsports Park, Rob MacCachren has earned victories in three out of the last four rounds of racing. Leading the Pro 2 Unlimited field by 39 points, MacCachren will undoubtedly bring this same competitive edge to the Pro 4 Unlimited class and add more trophies to the growing collection.
