TOOELE, UT – Team Toyo drivers Kyle LeDuc and Brandon Arthur both scored victories during Rounds 5 & 6 of the Lucas Oil® Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) this past weekend at the Utah Motorsports Campus in Tooele, Utah. Both racing on Toyo Open Country tires, LeDuc competes in the Pro 4 class while Arthur races in Pro Lite.
Kyle LeDuc qualified fastest for Saturday’s Round 5, and then won the Pro 4 class main event while setting the quickest lap time of 40.541. During Sunday’s Round 6, he finished second in the main event and currently leads the Pro 4 class championship by 26 points. LeDuc’s #99 Monster Energy / Toyo Tires Ford truck relies on Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires for his championship lead. He has won a total of four Pro 4 class championships on Toyo tires, the last three consecutively.
“We had a good weekend all around, with a win Saturday and a second on Sunday,” said LeDuc. “More important, we stretched out our lead to 26 points and have shown these guys that we are here for championship number five.”
During Sunday’s Round 6, Brandon Arthur won his first Pro Lite race of the season piloting his #6 MAV TV / Toyo Tires Chevrolet truck. Arthur’s Pro Lite truck uses off-the-shelf Toyo Open Country A/T II tires while on the track.
“My Toyo tires were hooked up all weekend and led us to our first win of the year,” said Arthur.
“We congratulate both Kyle LeDuc and Brandon Arthur for winning races this last weekend in Utah on Toyo tires,” said Stan Chen, senior manager of events and sponsorships, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “Kyle continues to extend his solid lead in the Pro 4 class championship points, while Brandon has captured his first win in Pro Lite for 2017.”
The next races will be held July 22 and 23 at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO.
