Radar-Tires-Lucas-Oil-2013-12-10-13Traverse City, Mich. – Looking for a podium finish, Radar Tires heads to the track where dirt champions are crowned: the mecca of short course off-road dirt racing – Crandon International Off-Road Raceway. Three Radar Tires racers look to stand on the box at this weekend’s Big House Brawl, the seventh and eighth rounds of the TORC: The Off Road Championship.

Nearly 80 miles from Green Bay, Wis., Crandon International Off-Road Raceway is a natural terrain short-course dirt venue. A challenging one-mile, six-turn course, Crandon is known for its standing starts, fast straightaways and jumps that exceed 150 feet.

Colorado Springs, CO 9/6/12 – 2012 hosted an epic fall Crandon event. It is always said and its always true – nothing beats Crandon. The small town came out in droves for the yearly parade. The weather was perfect, competition stiff, and racing dramatic. Especially tight was the points race in the Pro-Light division. Brad Lovell came to conquer a 1-point deficit on leader Andrew Caddell. While he only has one race win at Crandon, Lovell is known for his speed on the track.

Brad made the first jab in qualifying setting the fast time and grabbing 2 points in the process. Caddell returned the volley by qualifying 2nd and earning a single point – the pair would line up on the grid in a season points tie. Brad added, “Our Nissan is the fastest truck at Crandon and I knew we had to make it count this weekend. The inversion of the starting grid is always a factor but we are here to score points.”
