I tried cracking a wifi password that uses WPA 2 PSK encryption. The network is using MAC filtering as a security measure. How can I crack the password of the same network?

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Just use a tool like
ifconfig <interface> down # Take it down before messing with the address macchanger -m xx:yy:zz:aa:bb:cc ifconfig <interface> up
In short, these are two separate things:
in order to crack the WPA2 PSK, you just need to capture the authentication 'handshake'. One way of doing that is passively sniffing until you get what you need. Another way is to force a deauth, in order to force a node to re-authenticate - doing that will generally involve spoofing the AP or client MAC.
once you have cracked the PSK, you will need to spoof your MAC to get around MAC-filtering.
