Colorado Springs, CO 10/2/12 – Brad Lovell saves little by saying “This is the biggest moment in my career!” The statement is hard to deny as Lovell Racing won their first ever TORC PRO-Light Championship only a week after capturing the Ultra 4 Pro Championship.

Lovell entered the shocking final rounds of TORC racing in Lancaster, CA with a 5-point lead over rival Andrew Caddell. The narrow course funneled the trucks through a tight left hand turn and Caddell tangled with another truck. Lovell got through cleanly and passed Caddell who was forced to the pit with a flat. As the race resumed the action took a dramatic turn. Caddell suffered mechanical damage and was forced to DNF while Lovell soon lost his brakes. “Its pretty sketchy to race without brakes. I knew I had to salvage a finish and almost piled it into the wall a couple times. It was a very intense race! I didn’t see the wreck Caddell was in but it didn’t sound good.” Lovell managed to finish 5th and collect much needed points.
