Lovell-Team-BFGoodrich-Baja-1000-11-18-13Colorado Springs, CO 11/18/2013 – The Baja 1000 is typically seen as trophy trucks jumping over rises lined with spectators, slamming through whoops, and speeding down tight roads. Is this reality? Absolutely. The race is so broad however, that this is only a glimpse of the real experience.

The true essence of the Baja 1000 takes years to grasp. There are high speed roads, bone jarring rocks, narrow shelf roads, oceans of silt, and even pavement. The key is to know when to push hard, when to protect the car, and when to forget speed and focus on survival. Exhaustion and bizarre sights make the memories dreamlike. This is the ultimate endurance challenge of man and machine.

To all our supporters – We could really use some help getting to Baja with BFGoodrich Tires. BFG is holding a contest on Facebook where you can vote for your favorite driver to race in the BFGoodrich Baja Challenge car in this years peninsula run down Baja. Thanks to support from our fans we got a chance last year and were poised for a 2nd place finish in class 10 before “catastrophic mechanical failure” caused us to finish 6th. We need another chance and ask for your support.

Colorado Springs, CO 7/23/12 – Chicagoland Speedway has not been kind to Brad Lovell. A lawn dart maneuver took him out of contention in 2010 and in 2011 a similar move resulted in double DNF’s. The driver of the #44 AMSOIL / Torchmate Nissan was looking for anything more than a mid-season flop this year and was rewarded with two strong finishes.

“I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t thinking about season points,” commented Brad, “With our history in Chicago and a 2nd place points tie with CJ Greaves, I just focussed on finishing.” Chicagoland featured a new 3/4 mi track layout this year that took full advantage of the size of the facility. The dirt gave way to treacherous ruts that highlighted the untamed nature of off-road racing.
