THE BATTLE OF THE BAJA

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

unnamed 13 220x220 THE BATTLE OF THE BAJAColorado Springs, CO 11/18/14 - We have had several class wins in the Baja but the race is not something you ever really conquer. No matter how many times I race there, it never fails to drop my jaw. It has little to do with a typical American desert race, it is the Baja 1000. The only thing you can prepare for is for everything to go awry. At times the race is peaceful, other times intense with screaming crowds, often terrifying with unseen hazards hiding in a sinister haze.

WE TAKE AN EARLY LEAD

I had the privilege of driving the start of the race this year for the BFGoodrich Tires BC-1 car. The start definitely falls in the “intense” category and I loved every minute of it. The excitement and hazard of the fans lining the course has no equivalent. Fans try to touch the car as it goes by and dumbest of all – even lie in the road on the far side of jumps. While a wild ride, we made it through with nothing but positive experiences and put 35 miles on the 2nd place car in the first 308 miles.  Read More→

Double Header Weekend for the Lovell Brothers

Thursday, June 26th, 2014
Lovell amsoil 220x140 Double Header Weekend for the Lovell BrothersColorado Springs, CO 6/19/14 – It was back to the short track for the Lovell Brothers this past weekend. Brad raced rounds 5 & 6 in the TORC Series while Roger raced the #232 Ultra 4 in front of a hometown crowd at RAM Off-Road Park where he won last year.
“It was all about the jumps!” said Roger Lovell after pre-running the 5-mile course at the Lovell’s favorite local track, “The tempo and timing is everything. I can push harder but then your over jumping everything and flat landing the truck. You can do that, but not for 3 hours!” That smart tempo paid off last year and Roger is always good at staying focused on his race.
