Lucas-Oil-Logo-11-21-11Sunday is often the day when the action really unfolds here in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, presented by GEICO, and today, that was certainly true. Here at Wild West Motorsports Park in Sparks, NV, just east of Reno, the skies were clearing after a couple of days of substantially smoky skies thanks to nearby wildfires, and the passionate local fans again packed the stands to watch a festival of horsepower.

Points battles are really heating up in all the classes, and while some of the frontrunners found continued good fortune this weekend, others hit major pitfalls, and had to fight hard to make up lost ground.

CHANDLER, ARIZONA –Kyle LeDuc and Toyo Tires swept the Pro 4 Unlimited class this weekend during the Lucas Oil® Off Road Racing Series 2012 season-opener at Firebird International Raceway in Chandler, Arizona.  Driving his #99 Monster Energy / Toyo Tires Ford F-150, LeDuc’s domination began when he was the fastest qualifier on Friday.  He then won both Saturday and Sunday’s big races in a field of 12 competitors.  His 900+ horsepower truck relied on Toyo Open Country M/T®-R tires to help deliver the early season wins.

“Toyos don’t just win races, they eliminate any competitor,” said LeDuc.  “Team Monster Energy Drink Toyo Tires is in a league of our own and will continue to deliver more than ever expected.”

Scoring a win in the Pro Lite Unlimited class during Saturday’s Round 1 was Austin Kimbrell, driving his #88 Toyo Tires / Kimbrell Electric Ford Ranger.  Kimbrell, a resident of Phoenix, Arizona, fought his way to the front of the huge 26-truck field while riding on street legal Open Country M/T tires.  During Sunday’s Round 2, Kimbrell led the field until being spun out by another competitor.  He fought his way back into a solid fourth place finish for a great start to the season.
