LAKE ELSINORE, CA
– Kyle LeDuc drove his #99 Monster Energy / Toyo Tires Ford truck to a ‘perfect weekend’ at the Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park, in Lake Elsinore, CA.  Competing in Rounds 13 & 14 in the Pro 4 class of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS); LeDuc was fastest in practice, qualified first both Saturday and Sunday, swept both main events, and captured the overall track record with a best lap of 44.537.

LeDuc’s Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires contributed to his dominant performance which now has him tied in the Pro 4 class points lead heading into the final race weekend of the season.  During that final race in Arizona, he has a chance to win a record third consecutive championship title.

“This was the kind of race weekend, that when our tires touched the dirt it meant either win or lose,” said LeDuc.  “The track was very tricky and demanded a lot of traction.  Our Toyos gave us the grip needed to rip it up!”

Team Toyo’s Brandon Arthur also scored a podium by finishing third in Saturday’s Pro Lite main event with his #6 Competitive Metals / Pro Traffic Services / Toyo Tires Ford truck running off-the-shelf Toyo® Open Country M/T® tires.

“We congratulate Kyle LeDuc for sweeping Lake Elsinore and setting the overall track record,” said Stan Chen, senior manager of events and sponsorships, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “He is now in a position to make history if he wins the Pro 4 class championship in Arizona. Toyo’s Open Country tires have been on board for both Kyle’s and Brandon Arthur’s podium-winning performances throughout the year.”

The Pro 4 class championship will be decided during the final race weekend of the 2016 season.  It will take place October 22 – 23 at the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, AZ.
