Team Toyo’s Brandon Arthur captures 1st & 2nd and Kyle LeDuc scores a podium
Team Toyo’s Brandon Arthur scored first and second place Pro-Lite class finishes during Rounds 15 & 16 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) this past weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, NV. Arthur’s No. 6 Competitive Metals / Pro Traffic Services / Toyo Tires Ford truck uses off-the-shelf Toyo Open Country A/T II tires for his success on the track.
Arthur started the weekend by laying down the fastest qualifying time. During Round 15 on Friday evening, he easily defeated 23 hard-charging competitors in the Pro-Lite class. Proving his unwavering determination, Arthur was back on the podium to finish in second place during Saturday’s Round 16.
Through Sunday, Arthur has captured a total of two wins, six second place finishes, and a third place. With his successes, he currently sits in third overall for the 2015 Pro-Lite class championship.
“Our Toyo tires were hooked up this weekend,” said Brandon Arthur. “Our tires lead us to be number one qualifier for both days, and score a win and a second place finish. I couldn’t be any happier with my tires.”
Also capturing a podium this weekend, Pro 4 class point leader Kyle LeDuc finished in Third Place during Friday’s Round 15. Equipped with Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires, LeDuc and his No. 99 Monster Energy / Toyo Tires Ford F-150 have one more race weekend left to secure the 2015 Pro 4 class championship.
“Congratulations to Brandon Arthur for his Round 15 win, and then following it up with a second place finish in Las Vegas,” said Stan Chen, senior manager of events and sponsorships, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “We also congratulate Kyle LeDuc on his podium finish during Round 15.”
