Posted: June 18, 2012

CRANDON, Wis., (June 17, 2012) – Much like a rock concert, the world’s top short course off-road stars that jam the loudest on the Traxxas TORC Series, presented by AMSOIL, tour – the 900-horsepower PRO 4x4 and PRO 2WD trucks - came out for an encore performance to cap off a day full of action for the 15,000-plus fans in attendance at the Forest County Potawatomi Brush Run at Crandon International Off-Road Raceway.

The 19th annual Forest County Potawatomi Chairman’s Cup – a 12.5-second handicap start race favoring the blistering fast PRO 2 trucks versus the corner-hugging and equally fast PRO 4 trucks – featured a stacked field of THIRTEEN trucks on the famous Land Rush starting line at Crandon. Ten laps with no competition caution, it’s an all-out blitz for a BIG bag of cash at the finish line!

In the end it would be Ram/Stanton/Mopar’s factory PRO 2 racer Rob MacCachren who would reign victorious!“It feels great to win the Chairman’s Cup,” said MacCachren. “Everyone at Jenkins Brothers Racing worked so hard on this truck and it really came to fruition for that race. Our Mopar-powered Ram Truck was absolutely awesome. We had a brand new Mopar engine in from Stantons that was great. We were just hooked up today and running strong. I’ve won the Chairman’s Cup now in both a PRO 2 and PRO 4, and that is pretty cool.”
