       Printer Image
Team Lovell went to Moab, Utah on top of the rock crawling world. The team won the WE ROCK competition in Tucson, Arizona. Brothers Brad and Roger Lovell were more than ready for the competition. “We ended up in second place,” said Brad Lovell. “It’s not a bad start to the season, first place in Arizona, then second in Utah.”

“Racing can be the best job in the world,” said Brad Lovell. “It can also be the worst job in the world.” The Lovell brothers had to fix what they called an electrical phantom on their No. 32 Ford before they hit the land of red rocks and the so-called Mecca of their sport in Utah.

“As soon as we arrived we went to tear up some rocks,” he said. “I was having a great run on the rocks and in the dirt until flames started shooting out of the tailpipes.”

The team only had one day until the XRRA Moab race and Brad Lovell said he started to stress. “My wife supported me and encouraged me and I tore into the truck and did my best to fix the problem,” he said. “With the deadline for the tech inspecting closing in, we began to accept our fate.” Fortunately they found the solution and the truck roared to life. The problem was a corroded connection in their computer.

“My runs were consistent and went well,” he said. “It was the typical bone jarring, metal shearing punishment that XRRA is known for. Our K&N air filters worked great the whole time. K&N keeps our sensors from clogging up and keeps the debris out of the engine.”

The Lovell’s next race will be in Primm, Nevada for the Terrible’s Town 250.
