Colorado Springs, CO 7/2/13 – Team Lovell made major strides this weekend climbing from 5th in the 2013 TORC Series standings for a firm grasp on 3rd place and finally in the hunt for the top spot at the mid-point of the season. This comes after a commanding performance in Crandon with two 2nd Place finishes.
There is a reason that northern Wisconsin is so green – lots of rain. Storms pounded Crandon before the weekends festivities canceling practice and qualifying. The field was left with a single test lap before the infamous land rush start into turn #1. “I wanted to qualify,” adds Brad, “But we did our homework and made sure to test before the weekend so we were pretty prepared.” With confidence in hand Lovell got the hole shot and sped through turn #1 on two wheels yeilding the lead to Kincaid who would nearly tip in turn #2 giving the front spot back to Lovell. The two would continue to battle before Lovell finished 2nd. “I felt some G’s leaving the line as the BFG’s hooked up. I had so much speed going into turn #1 I knew it was going to get good! Awesome race and great track after the heavy rains!”
