Brad-Lovell-TORC_Off-road-8-13-13BUCHANAN, Mich. — The second Pro-Light race of the weekend at RedBud MX was a bruiser with the tight racetrack forcing drivers to play a high-speed game of bumper cars as the TORC Series presented by AMSOIL completed its annual visit to southern Michigan.

In the end, defending class champion Brad Lovell managed to find the podium for the sixth time this season, pulling off a respectable third-place result in his  AMSOIL/Torchmate/BFGoodrich Nissan before a boisterous Sunday afternoon crowd.

“I’m so proud to be back up here on the podium,” Lovell said. “That was a brutal race. So much banging and bumping. You just can’t avoid it on this track but today was especially hard. I took some hits today, I promise you.
