Mopar Ram Truck Pilot Hübinette Sweeps PRO Light Class in RedBud, Teammate MacCachren Triumphs in PRO 2
Samuel Hübinette and Rob MacCachren put the cherry on top of a dream weekend for Mopar® and Ram Trucks at the 2011 Traxxas TORC (The Off-Road Championship) Series season-opening stop at Buchanan, Mich., claiming victories in the PRO Light and PRO 2 classes, respectively, at a wet and muddy RedBud MX course on Sunday, May 30.
Hübinette became the first back-to-back PRO class event winner of 2011, a remarkable accomplishment for the TORC rookie, who had only seven pre-season testing laps in his No. 77 Mopar-powered Ram before the PRO Light Round One event on Saturday, in which Hübinette emerged victorious. The “Crazy Swede” would double up on Sunday in Round Two, this time taking the win in a thrilling, come-from-behind charge to edge out C.J. Greaves at the checkers. Hübinette was joined on the podium by another Mopar-powered Ram driver, Andrew Caddell; coming home fifth was Mopar-powered Ram off-roader Luke Johnson.
