Team AMSOIL/Torchmate off-road racers Brad and Roger Lovell competed at the inaugural Ultra 4 Stampede race just east of Reno, Nev. on September 11. The three-lap, 66-mile race took place on a challenging course of rough and rocky desert roads and three untamed canyons. After some last-minute tuning, prep and double checks, the green flag dropped and the brothers powered their way through rocks, silt and dust. By the third lap, they held second place by 18 minutes and found themselves deep in lapped traffic. At the top of the second rock canyon, however, the rear axle lost its lubrication. With the win now out of sight, the team focused on finishing, kept a strong pace and limped across the finish line in second.
“The brutality of this race redefines rock racing,” said Brad Lovell. “It joins King of the Hammers as the ultimate test for this type of truck. Once we lost fluid, I thought for sure the rear axle would fail, but the coating of Amsoil saved it from seizing. Torchmate was a great help and opened their shop for all competitors before the race. This was a well-run, well-promoted race and a confidence booster for me to get back up on the podium.”
