Kyle LeDuc and Toyo Tires Sweep Rounds at Wild Horse Pass
Defending Pro 4 class champion, Kyle LeDuc, swept Rounds 3 & 4 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series this past weekend at the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, AZ.
Driving his Toyo Open Country M/T -R equipped No. 99 Monster Energy / Toyo Tires Ford F-150 truck, LeDuc proved he was the best in 10-truck fields on both Friday and Saturday.
With the goal of winning a third championship on his mind, LeDuc has already won three of the first four races this season and leads in the Pro 4 class points.
“This weekend was a race that we just meshed very well with the track and all of our setups just lined up perfect,” said LeDuc. “We tried some new grooves on our Toyo Open Country’s and man did it make the difference! Hats off to Toyo Tires for being on my truck and giving me the tires to deliver epic races.”
Also finishing on the podium for Team Toyo during Round 3 was Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg, driving his No. 88 Ethika / Toyo Tires / RVNG truck in the Pro Lite class. Stenberg’s Open Country equipped truck captured third place while battling a huge 23-truck field.
“Congratulations to Kyle LeDuc for his Pro 4 class sweep in Arizona, and to Jeremy Stenberg for making it on the podium during Round 3,” said Stan Chen, senior manager of events and sponsorships, Toyo Tire U.S.A.
