The Grabowski Brothers came away with a hard-earned victory at the Inaugural California 300 race in Barstow, California on Saturday. The three brothers stayed consistent in their spec truck chasing down leader Cayden MacCachren who was driving his father’s Trophy Truck. While Cayden finished first physically, the boys had put the hammer down just enough to take the win by two and a half minutes.
The brothers were surprised to secure the overall when they reached the finish line. They said they expected other trucks to be at the finish ahead of them. Dustin Grabowski started the race with younger brother Troy as co-driver. Mid-race, Troy took over driving duties.
Coming off a huge win at Rally Du Maroc, Mitch Guthrie continued his forward momentum with an overall win in the limited race. Guthrie posted the second fastest time during qualifying. When the green flag dropped, he and Brandon Sims had a tight race battle. “It was a long day, a tough day,” Guthrie said at the finish. “I’m sure everyone knows how this course is—it was brutal, and then to top it off, I had Branden on us the whole time, pushing us to go faster and faster. It was fun, though, and it was cool because we were able to set the pace up front, play that game, and see where we’d end up every lap. It ended up working out for us!”
