Team Toyo’s LeDuc brothers sweep Lucas Oil Off Road Series race weekend
Brothers Todd and Kyle LeDuc swept Rounds 7 & 8 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Series this past weekend in Lake Elsinore, California while racing on 35X12.50R17 Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires. Piloting their 800+ horsepower Rockstar/Makita/Ford Trucks/Toyo Tires F-150 trucks, the LeDuc brothers put on a driving clinic by scoring back-to-back victories in their respective unlimited truck classes while racing under the lights at the Lake Elsinore Motorsports Complex.
Todd LeDuc dominated both days of the Unlimited 2 class by defeating large fields. Starting in eighth for Saturday’s race due to an engine problem during qualifying, LeDuc exercised patience while working his way to the front. He struck on the last lap to take over the lead for the win. On Sunday, a mid-race spin placed him in seventh, but he clawed his way to the front once again for a repeat win.
“I received big compliments from the other drivers about how I could pass on the inside lines on slick dirt where nobody else could,” said Todd LeDuc. “My Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires allowed me to put my truck wherever I wanted all weekend long.”
Kyle LeDuc displayed the same type of domination in the Unlimited 4 class. He was able to outpace the four-wheel-drive truck field for back-to-back victories.
“Our team is excited to get back to the TORC series with what we have learned this weekend,” said father/team principle, Curt LeDuc. “Between our wins here at Lake Elsinore and in the TORC series, Team LeDuc has captured 22-podiums already this year. We have had no failures all season with our Toyo tires.”
“We congratulate both Todd and Kyle LeDuc on their outstanding sweep of the Lake Elsinore race this past weekend,” said Stan Chen, manager of events and motorsports, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “Team LeDuc continues to be great representatives of Toyo Tires products, demonstrating they can win with Open Country tires in all forms of off-road competition.”
