Rob MacCachren wins his 5th SCORE Baja 1000 with BFGoodrich®

26/04/2016

Rob MacCachren, an ambassador for BFGoodrich® over the past 24 years and a genuine American legend in the field of automotive sports, has some 200 wins under his belt and the greatest record of all in off-road racing.

Today, the driver has placed another cup in his trophy closet by winning, for the 5th time, the SCORE Baja 1000 with co-driver Andy McMillin. The SCORE Baja 1000, a legendary event, is held across the Baja peninsula in Mexico’s Lower California. Riding bikes or driving buggies, rally cars or trucks, contestants have to cover the event’s 1,000 miles as quickly as possible over rocky roads and a hazardous route.

Winning an event such as this calls for more than just talent. You also need tires that are able to stand up to extremely demanding roads and huge temperature swings. For hundreds of kilometers. And that’s exactly what BFGoodrich® KR2 tires can do.

So this triumph is also a win for BFGoodrich®. This is the 27th time the manufacturer has won the SCORE Baja 1000. And all of the first 10 drivers to cross the finishing line were fitted with BFGoodrich® tires. 

I've been with other tire companies at the beginning of my career. I started with BFGoodrich® tires in 1991. Over those years we won over 200 races.
