While the weather was less than ideal, the rain didn’t ruin the first day of epic short course action. TORC Pro drivers were not alone today, as 18 Ultra4s joined in for TORCs two round weekend event. They clearly showed they had what it takes to race at Crandon, and at the end of the day racing veteran Gary Ferravanti took top honors for Ultra4. Derek West came in second, and Nick Nelson came in third.

As great as the Ultra4 race was, today’s highlight goes to the amazing race by Brad Lovell in the Pro Light class. Just two seasons ago, Brad kicked off his Pro Light career right here at Crandon. We were at that first race helping out the team, and if memory serves us correctly Brad got near to last place that day. No doubt there’s a learning curve with short course racing, and we knew it would be only time before Brad would be a force to be recommend with. Fast forward to today, and Brad was indeed a force to be reckoned with.

By the second turn, Brad managed to pull ahead of the pack, and from that point forward no other Pro Light could pass him. After crossing the checkered flag, Brad claimed his 1st Crandon win, and now his second win for the season. Congrats to Brad, and team Lovell Racing, for a job well done.

With Brad, Gary Ferravanti, & Derek West’s podium finishes, this gives Spider 9 axles three top spots for the day. Always great to see, but the racing continues today with both Pro Lights & Ultra4s taking the course for TORC round 6. Stay tuned.
