We had the advantage of our aggressive Toyo Open Country tires and we went places on the track where others couldn’t.
SAN BERNARDINO, CA – Kyle LeDuc and Toyo Tires opened the 2019 racing season with a Pro 4 Class win during Round 1 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) at the Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, CA. LeDuc is a five-time Pro 4 Class Champion and has his sights set on championship number six. His #99 Monster Energy / Toyo Tires / WD-40 Ford truck relies on Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires to help deliver the win.
LeDuc was fastest qualifier and proved to be fastest by the end of the 16-lap Pro 4 Class finale on Saturday evening. He thrilled the fans by making his way to the front for the win with a margin of 2.43-seconds over the second-place truck.
“This was Round 1 of 2019 and we laid it down this weekend. We were the Fastest Qualifier and finished on top of the box,” said LeDuc. “We had the advantage of our aggressive Toyo Open Country tires and we went places on the track where others couldn’t. With pure determination and a little luck, we were able to pull off a victory coming from the rear of the pack!”
“During last night’s Pro 4 class race, Kyle LeDuc demonstrated why he is a five-time class champion by coming from behind to take the win,” said Stan Chen, senior manager of events and sponsorships, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “We congratulate Kyle for his dominant performance all weekend and are proud that our Open Country tires helped bring him another victory.”
Round 2 will be held Saturday, April 13 at the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, AZ. The 9-race Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series can be seen on CBS, CBS Sports Network and MAV TV.
