ESTERO BEACH, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MX – Four time champion Kyle LeDuc and Toyo Tires swept Rounds 3 & 4 of the Lucas Oil® Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) this past weekend in Estero Beach, near Ensenada in Baja California, Mexico. LeDuc’s #99 Monster Energy / Toyo Tires Pro 4 Class Ford truck (nicknamed EVVO) is an all-new truck this year... its winning tire, the Toyo Open Country M/T-R.
Arriving with the truck’s new chassis fully sorted after the first two rounds, LeDuc was dominant all weekend. He won both Pro 4 class main events while capturing the Fast Lap award for each race.
“The track went from sand to hard pack, and we were the only tire in the field that could handle both,” said LeDuc. “EVVO is on top where it belongs!”
“We congratulate Kyle LeDuc for his sweep at Estero Beach,” said Stan Chen, senior manager of events and sponsorships, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “This represents the first win for his new truck, and it is a good indication that he will be in the running for a fifth championship with Toyo tires on board.”
Kyle LeDuc has won a total of four Pro 4 class championships in LOORRS… the last three in succession.
2016 Pro Lite class runner-up, Brandon Arthur, is competing in both Pro Lite this year and the Production 1000 UTV class. Racing on off-the-shelf Toyo Open Country A/T II tires, Arthur won Saturday’s Production 1000 UTV main event in Estero Beach. This is his third consecutive win piloting the #906 MavTV/Toyo Tires/HRT/Motorsports/KMC Yamaha YXZ1000R.
The next races will be held June 24 and 25 at the Utah Motorsports Campus in Tooele, Utah.
