“It was our worst finish ever,” said Lovell. “I cried on my wife’s shoulder the whole way home from Texas.” Lovell’s was thrown off the line when his stinger dug into a rock. They rolled and had cooling, electrical and hydraulic issues.

“The course design also challenged our dated suspension geometry,” said Lovell. “We are pursuing a new Ranger with added vigor. It will be built to the edge of the rules with the best parts available.”

With only a few events left as the season winds down, Team Lovell plans to spend more time practicing to ensure they will be on top of their game next season.

“It wasn’t all bad,” said Lovell. “We entertained the crowd with our antics on the course. I shot off a drop, avoided a roll and then rolled on the other side just passing the finish gates.”

Out of 28 rock crawling competitions Team Lovell has made the podium 26 times. “This race stings, but our record is good and our K&N products didn’t give us any trouble. I can always count on K&N Filters to keep the debris out of our engines,” said Lovell. “There is also a slight taper to give me the clearance I need in this king of competition.”

Next event for Brad Lovell will be at the XRRA Finals in Colorado Springs on September 29.
