Rob Caho Jr. got started in the sport of Auto Racing due to his father, 'Rocket' Rob Caho. Rocket Rob began racing three-wheelers and midgets at the young age of fifteen and began racing motocross at eighteen. Rocket Rob was also the Flat Track Rider of the Year in the Nation in 1983. 1986 was the year 'Rocket' Rob began racing cars on both asphalt and dirt. Rob Caho Jr. started out by helping his father, who was living in Texas at the time, in the pits and in the shop. Racing, being such a heavy subject in the Caho Family, Rob Jr. wanted to get behind the wheel. In 1992, Rob Jr. began his racing career in the Go-Kart division. Having completed a successful season in his rookie year of go-karts, he decided to race with the American Bicycle Association (ABA). His Rookie Season with the ABA, he managed 25 top five finishes along with 10 victories and finished 3rd in the ABA Minnesota Division Season Points. His next season, Rob conquered the ABA Minnesota Division by winning half of the races he entered and winning the ABA Minnesota Division Points Championship. His third year in the ABA he was accepted into the PRO Division and managed 25 wins with 32 top five finishes and 50 top ten’s. In 1997, when Rob Jr. raced the PRO A Division in the ABA, he entered 120 events, traveled to 85 different tracks and had a whopping 93 Podium Finishes. These amazing results throughout the season guaranteed him a 5Th place finish in the Points Championship with the National ABA.
After finishing in the top five with the ABA, Rob wanted more. He began racing motorcycles with the American Motorcycle Association. His rookie season with the AMA as a 250 C class rider, he was strong enough to finish 8Th in the AMA District 23 Season Championship. He raced the 250 B Class the following year and then graduated to the 250 A class the next. In 2001 as a Pro Rider in the AMA he managed to win the AMA District 23 Season Championship and was crowned the 2001 AMA Minnesota State Supercross Champion. Not only winning the State Championship, Caho was also able to test his hand in the sport of Sprint Car racing. After realizing that sprint car racing was what he wanted to do, he began a full season in 2002 with the WISSOTA 360 Sprint Cars.
His rookie season with WISSOTA as a sprint car driver, he proved he could not only be a successful rider in supercross, but he could drive a sprint car as well. Qualifying for the Brodix Tournament of Champions in Knoxville, IA, finishing in the top five in points with WISSOTA, having 10 Heat wins, 5 Dash wins and 26 top ten finishes only proved that sprint car racing was where he needed to be. He won his first sprint car feature event at a WISSOTA show the following year in Watertown, SD and then unfortunately, like many racers do, he ran out of money. He then played his hand as a Crew Chief for a local Raceway Park driver and proved he could do that as well and learning valuable chassis set-up skills. After doing that for a couple years, Caho realized that he needed to be behind the wheel of a race car once again.
The Great North Legend Series was close by, so Rob decided that, with the lack of funds to support a competitive sprint car operation, he would race the Legend Series during the 2007 season. With Rob having a proven resume as a driver, he conquered the Semi-Pro Division, winning 20 events, finished second the other races, set a new track record, won the Great North Legend Series Semi-Pro Championship and was crowned the Minnesota State Champion in the INEX National Legend Series. In the National INEX Points, Rob was 14Th out of 646 other drivers. Not too bad for a Rookie Season.
