"Life Is A One Lap Race!"

Roger Lovell

When Roger helped Brad found Lovell Rock Racing in 2004, it was just a natural extension of his love of off-roading. From the Rocky Mountains, to Moab’s red rocks, to Baja’s desert beauty, Roger has seen it all and raced it all. He’s put in time behind the wheel, but is arguably even more gifted at being a spotter, with a unique knack for seeing the lines through obstacles. Roger also brings his background as structural engineer to bear by helping design, fabricate, and test the team’s vehicles.

RJ Anderson

RJ Anderson can’t rent a car yet—he’s only 23—but that’s probably for the best. After all, if given the chance, this LOORRS driver certainly could drive the wheels off of anything with wheels. Anderson traces his off-road ancestry to his father, who was crew chief for Off-road Motorsports Hall of Fame driver Walker Evans. His own career got off to a hot start with a championship in the Unlimited UTV class in 2011, followed by a Pro Lite Unlimited championship in 2012.

John Williams

No, not that John Williams. Our John Williams—although he’s not an Oscar-winning composer—is a maestro on the trail and in the garage. Between rock-crawling, Baja 1000 runs, and running in the Lucas Oil Regional Series, Williams has years of competitive experience, which translates into a sixth sense when it comes to setting up off-road vehicles. He’s not shy about sharing his wisdom either. You can find him working as a Ford Raptor instructor at the Utah Motorsports Park, or in his garage at Impulse Offroad.

Jason Childress

You’re doing something right if you’ve got “monster trucker racing” on your resume. With 15 years behind the wheels of some comically, unrepentantly absurd trucks, Jason Childress has lived out the childhood dreams of many. Now, with his brother Lonnie, Childress gets to live out another dream job. The co-owner of Gateway Classic Mustang spends his time upgrading and tuning Ford Mustangs.

Del Albright

It only stands to reason that if you’re going to go off-road, you should care about where you’re off-roading. However, Del Albright doesn’t just care—he’s leading the pack when it comes to land use and conservation. The former fire chief and soldier is now a photojournalist and founder of Friends of the Rubicon and the Rubicon Trail Foundation, two organizations that strive to preserve the storied Rubicon Trail.

Terry Earwood

It helps to have a calming presence in the passenger seat when you’re spinning out. Even better if that presence has a sense of humor. That’s Terry Earwood in a nutshell: an incredibly skilled and experienced driving instructor who manages to get the best out of his students—as well as a few laughs—while breaking down the intricacies of vehicle dynamics and racing lines. An instructor at the Skip Barber Driving School since 1984, Earwood has taught everyone from teens to budding racers to police officers and is himself an accomplished racer. Earwood is a drag racing Hall of Famer, as well as the winningest driver of the IMSA Firehawk Endurance Championship.

Mike Junior Johnson

Mike Johnson is an easy-going guy with a little mischievous streak in him. He also happens to be a 10-time SCCA national champion driver, and if you let him, he’ll tell you anything you want to know about how to go fast. With over a quarter-century of experience in performance driving, and as the owner and chief instructor at the Evolution Performance Driving School, Junior has plenty of knowledge to drop.

Rob MacCachren

The feeling of coming in first clearly doesn't get old for Rob MacCachren. Over his four-decade-long career, MacCachren has won nearly 300 off-road races including 5 Baja 1000s and 5 Baja 500s. He's also the 2016 LOORRS Pro 2 champion, and also has a SCORE Overall Championship to his name. Although his mind only knows how to go 120%, he's a smooth and polished driver in the dirt. With such a long and distinguished career, it’s only fair that this legend was inducted into the Off-road Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2011.

Lonnie Childress

When you’ve driven monster trucks for a living, pretty much any other career path is going to be a letdown. However, Lonnie Childress managed to one-up his car-crushing, truck-driving past. As co-owner of Gateway Classic Mustang, Lonnie now spends his time restoring and building Mustangs with his brother Jason. Noted for their superior craftsmanship, it’s no surprise that Gateway’s work has been featured in numerous muscle car publications.

Larry McRae

Poison Spyder Customs has long been the manufacturer of choice for hardcore Jeepers, and that reputation has a lot to do with the efforts of Larry McRae. The president of Poison Spyder, McRae has been a life-long off-roader, going all the way back to his childhood trips with his father into the Southwest’s wilderness—in a Ford Bronco, of course. Since then, McRae’s passion for all things dirt only grew. McRae has scored multiple class wins in the Baja 1000, as well as numerous rock crawling championships.
