The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series is bringing its short-course off-road racing show to the motorsports Mecca of Las Vegas this Saturday and Sunday, November 5th and 6th.

For several days now the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series advance team has been busy turning the Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s dirt track into a challenging short-course off-road racing venue complete with multiple high banked turns and jumps that are guaranteed to push the drivers and their vehicles to the limit.

Rounds 13 and 14 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series 2011 season will again feature their 11 racing divisions, ranging from youngsters in custom built karts to full sized trucks churning out 800-plus horsepower.

With the conclusion of the current season a little over one month away, championship points are more important than ever and the drivers are expected to push a little harder to collect podium points for finish positions one through three. Many of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series divisions are currently featuring championship battles that are still too close to call.

TOOELE, UTAH – Team Toyo® Off-Road driver, Kyle LeDuc, scored his second consecutive Pro 4 Unlimited class victory this past Saturday during Round 7 of the Lucas Oil® Off-Road Series (LOORS) race at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah.  His Toyo® Open Country M/T®-R equipped #99 Rockstar / Makita / Toyo Tires Ford F-150 was the truck to beat all weekend.  LeDuc qualified second on Saturday morning before taking the victory, and then qualified first during Round 8 on Sunday before going on to take second place that day.  His previous Pro 4 Unlimited class victory came during Round 6 at Glen Helen in May.

“Saturday’s win was the result of hard, clean racing, while setting a fastest lap of the race — all on my Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires,” said LeDuc.  “During Sunday’s race, I came from the back of the field twice to capture an exciting second place.  My fans were on their feet for that one.”

In addition to his wins and top qualifying spots in Pro 4 Unlimited, LeDuc qualified first on Saturday in the Pro Lite Unlimited class with off-the-shelf Toyo Open Country M/T tires.

Also capturing a second place podium finish on Saturday was Jeremy McGrath driving his Monster Energy / Ready LIFT / Toyo Tires Pro 2 Unlimited Ford truck.  A part of the Stronghold Motorsports stable, McGrath beat 12 other competitors on his Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires.

“Congratulations to Kyle LeDuc on scoring his second consecutive Pro 4 win, and to Jeremy McGrath for his Pro 2 class podium,” said Stan Chen, manager of events and motorsports, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp.  “It was a great weekend for Team Toyo.”

LAKE FOREST, CA – Not only did Carl Renezeder win three Lucas Oil Off Road Races this weekend, he came within 0.203 seconds of making a clean sweep of the Pro-2 and Pro-4 divisions, finishing second to Kyle LeDuc on Sunday in one of the best battles of the season.

“It’s been a long time since we’ve had a weekend like this,” commented a relieved Renezeder after the final race of the weekend.  “It just felt so good to be able to attack and battle this weekend.  I’ll remember these races for a long time.”

You’d have to go back to the first half of the 2009 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series season to find three wins in one weekend for Renezeder.  He did it on the inaugural weekend in Primm, Nevada, and then again in rounds five and six in Lake Elsinore, California, but neither of them had a second-place finish to round out the weekend like this last one did.
