“We made repairs and fine tuned the trucks for Sunday’s race,” said Brad Lovell. “Then, it was time to hit the course again. This time we were determined not to make the same mistakes again.”
Brad Lovell took off in a battle for the lead with Shannon Campbell. Roger Lovell continued his strong performance and by noon, two of the top three spots were held by the Lovell brothers.
“Roger’s time deteriorated and he fell to 7th after facing muddy rocks from a watered course followed by a dug out climb,” said Lovell. “I raced forward and sparred with Campbell into the shootout.” The two brutal runs were an event heat between the rivals but Campbell’s faster times during regular competition gave him the edge. Brad Lovell handed the team another second place.
“We never have to worry about our K&N air filters,” said Lovell. “There is a lot of silt and fine dust on these courses and K&N Keeps the debris out of our engines and keeps our sensors from clogging up. There is also a slight taper to give us the clearance and flexibility we need on these difficult courses.”
Brad Lovell placed 4th overall in the 2009 series and Roger Lovell was 5th overall. The Lovell’s are on their way to the 1000 mile Vegas to Reno desert race on August 20th. The brothers will square off against 18 other unlimited mini trucks for victory in the longest point to point race in the United States.
