Video: Here’s Why You Never Get In Front of Chris MacClugage

There’s a reason why you don’t tug on Superman’s cape. Nor should you ever pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger. And you never, ever mess with Macc. Chris MacClugage’s 19 World Championships prove that the Broward Motorsports/Dean’s Team/Factory Yamaha racer is a force to be reckoned with this year, and especially during the Pro Stock Runabout races at this year’s IJSBA World Finals.

Macc met some resistance on his path to world domination aboard his Stock class Yamaha FZR SVHO WaveRunner, particularly during the second moto of the class’ two day weekend. Viewed from the back of fellow racer Pancho Marjak, Macc’s white-and-blue FZR (with the neon yellow #46 on the hood) can be seen closing in on Marjak’s tail more than once. In one daring move to overpower the Helsinki, Finland native, Macc not only closes in, but literally runs up and over the back of Marjak’s ski.

While nothing to get too wound up about, Macc did address his fellow racer (and friend) in a post on Facebook stating, “Sorry Pancho Marjak, but it was great to race with you again. Next time don’t use so much brake!”

Much of Marjak’s moto can be seen below including the hair-raising start where several racers nearly parked their machines on Marjak’s swimstep. But Macc’s persistence and dogged determination is what earned him the points overall win for his sponsors, which shared in his celebration.
