Kyle Leduc Wins Round 8 Of The Pro 4 Class In Mexico
Kyle LeDuc and Toyo Tires captured another Pro 4 class victory this past weekend during Sunday’s Round 8 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series at the Baja International Short Course in Ensenada, Baja California, MX.
His Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires provided the traction and durability for his Monster Energy / Toyo Tires Ford truck.
LeDuc started the weekend by qualifying fastest during Saturday morning’s qualifying race on the beach sand of the scenic Estero Beach Resort. That afternoon he finished Round 7 in third place.
“We threw Baja dirt sky high today in Pro 4 with our Toyo tires,” said LeDuc. “Nobody had speed for us this weekend. We own Estero Beach!”
Also scoring two podiums for Team Toyo was Brandon Arthur competing in the Pro Lite class. Arthur captured back-to-back third place finishes during Rounds 7 & 8 while driving his Competitive Metals / Pro Traffic Services / Toyo Tires Ford truck running off-the-shelf Toyo Open Country A/T II tires.
“We congratulate Kyle LeDuc for scoring his second win of the season this weekend in Ensenada, Mexico,” said Stan Chen, senior manager of events and sponsorships, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “We also congratulate Brandon Arthur for his back-to-back third place finishes. The sandy course conditions are far different than most all other tracks encountered during the season. It proves the race-winning versatility of our Toyo Open Country tires.”
Short course off-road racing returns to the US July 23 – 24 when the competitors take on the rolling Glen Helen Raceway outside of San Bernardino, CA.
