Rockstar Makita’s Rob MacCachren is running third in points in the PRO 2 Unlimited class and will not make things easy for Brian Deegan this weekend. Rob is coming off of a disappointing finish at the last round that knocked him out of the championship points lead but never one to give up, MacCachren intends to put the Rockstar Makita Tools team back on podium for the eighth time this season. "It all comes down to this," said MacCachren, who many consider to be the most talented off-road racer on the planet with over 200 career victories to his credit.
In PRO 4 Unlimited racing action, Todd LeDuc is currently sitting second in overall points heading into the final race and his trailing his brother and fellow Makita athlete Kyle LeDuc by a mere 16 points. Todd has managed to put his Rockstar Makita Ford truck up on the podium at nearly every race this season and is coming off of a victory at the last race. Todd will carry the momentum of the last race into Firebird and sparks will definitely be flying as Todd looks to overtake his younger brother one more time and bring home the 2012 PRO 4 Unlimited Championship and certainly some bragging rights.
