Team Toyo Wins Big At Glen Helen
Team Toyo Off-Road drivers had a great weekend during Rounds 9 and 10 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Races at the Glen Helen Raceway in Glen Helen, CA.
In the Pro 4 class, Kyle LeDuc was the big winner as he scored a sweep, winning both days under the lights. His No. 99 Monster Energy / Toyo Tires Ford truck, equipped with Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires, proved to be fast all weekend. While he fought hard for the win on Saturday, he qualified fastest and then captured the Fast Lap award during Sunday’s dominant victory.
“We had epic results at Glen Helen this weekend,” said LeDuc. “Our speed was great and we had killer performance from our truck and our Toyo Tires.”
In the Pro Lite class, Jeremy Stenberg finished on the podium in second place during Saturday’s Rd. 9 with his No. 8 MavTV / Toyo Tires Chevrolet. On Sunday, Brandon Arthur captured a Rd. 10 win driving his No. 6 Competitive Metals / Toyo Tires Ford. Both Pro Lite class trucks use Toyo Open Country M/T tires to provide traction.
“Our Toyo Open Country M/T tires were hooked up,” said Arthur. “We made a pretty big change by switching our setup, and it paid off huge for our team.”
“We congratulate Kyle LeDuc for sweeping the Pro 4 class at Glen Helen this past weekend,” said Stan Chen, senior manager of events and sponsorships, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “We also congratulate Jeremy Stenberg and Brandon Arthur for their performances. Team Toyo had a great weekend with four podiums, three being wins.”
The next races will take place August 13 – 14 at the Wild West Motorsports Park in Sparks, NV.
