Rob MacCachren has raced in and won in virtually every kind of Off-Road racing series during his career that has spanned the past 3 decades. Whether it is desert racing in the U.S. or Baja, stadium racing, or short course racing, Rob has raced it and won in it. He has compiled a very impressive record of wins and championships both in limited and unlimited classes. No other racer has ever enjoyed the level of success he has had in so many different vehicles and so many different series.
But it takes more than just racing successes and victories to impress the voting committee members who decide on who should be admitted to the Hall of Fame. It was Rob’s role as an ambassador to the sport that convinced the committee that this man is truly worthy of induction into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame. Rob never misses an opportunity to promote or support the various series with which he has been involved. Press conferences, public speaking engagements, promotions, interviews, and appearances are just a few of the opportunities he embraces to promote the sport. Rob’s media savvy and availability have gotten him named to the All American Writers and Broadcasting Association’s first and second teams on multiple occasions. He has also been named as Dirt Sports Magazine Driver of the Year (2007) and has been BF Goodrich’s Motorsports Person of the Year (2007) as well as having been named SCORE Person of the Year twice (1987, 2008). Rob has also mentored several up and coming drivers. He has taken promising young drivers and shows them not only how to go fast, but how to work on the vehicles, and how to earn respect in the sport and be a good representative for their sponsors. Rob has even helped his competitors by testing to improve their race cars and driving practices. Rob has already set numerous records with his impressive list of wins, and as an active racer we expect he will continue to win and to represent our sport as an ambassador of excellence.
