TOOELE, UT
– Kyle LeDuc and Toyo Tires celebrated Father’s Day Weekend with a third consecutive Pro 4 class sweep in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, UT.  LeDuc has won seven consecutive races out of a total of eight so far in 2015 with his Toyo® Open Country M/T-R equipped #99 Monster Energy / Toyo Tires Ford F-150 truck.

During Saturday’s Pro 4 class qualifying session, Kyle LeDuc was more than a half second per lap faster than the next fastest truck.  During both Saturday and Sunday’s main events, he was able to ‘manage’ his lead position… pulling further ahead if there was a hint he would be challenged.  LeDuc finished in first place during Rounds 7 and 8, and now holds a 39-point lead over the second place truck of Rob MacCachren for the 2015 Pro 4 class championship.

“This dirt is the hardest to hook up on for all teams,” said LeDuc about the track at Miller Motorsports Park.  “We are fortunate enough to be on Toyos and that is for sure the reason we were fastest all weekend.  That makes for 51 total career Pro 4 wins!”

Team Toyo® driver Brandon Arthur, also stood on the podium this weekend while driving his #6 Competitive Metals / Pro Traffic Services / Toyo Tires Ford truck.  Arthur finished in second place during Sunday’s Round 8 over a large field of 18 trucks while running on off-the-shelf Toyo Open Country A/T II tires.  This is his second podium finish of the season, his previous was a third place at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park nearly a month prior.

“We congratulate Kyle LeDuc for winning his third consecutive sweep and for extending his lead in the Pro 4 class championship,” said Stan Chen, senior manager of events and sponsorships, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp.  “We also congratulate Brandon Arthur for capturing another podium in the Pro Lite class this season.  Toyo Open Country tires had another great weekend in Utah in short course off-road racing.”

Rounds 9 and 10 will take place July 18 – 19, at the Glen Helen Raceway in Glen Helen, CA.
