“We experienced a heartbreaking rollover only yards from the exit gate,” said Brad Lovell. “We were frustrated but undeterred, and our efforts during regular competition put us in the finals.”

The Lovell brothers faced the longest course they had ever seen. “Roger and I did a good job of getting through the courses fast all weekend,” said Brad Lovell. “We were in the zone and felt no pressure or stress. I was merciless on the truck and whipped it around the whole park.” Brad Lovell was comfortable with his speeds and Roger Lovell gave him expert coaching in the rocks. Together they had a near perfect run and when it was all over, they lead by four points for the win.

“Roger and I are really proud of the versatility of this truck,” said Lovell. “Coming off a 5th place finish in King of the Hammers to a win in We-Rock feels really good. There is a lot of silt and fine dust on these courses but our K&N air filters keeps the debris out of our engines and prevents our sensors from clogging up. We need K&N air filters on these difficult courses.”

The next stop for Torchmate Racing is the XRRA season opener in Moab, Utah. Brad and Roger Lovell are in pursuit of a race win and the 2009 XRRA championship.
