Kyle LeDuc, driver of the Toyo-equipped No. 99 Rockstar/Makita Pro 4 Class Ford F-150, won the biggest race at the Dec 11-12 Rockstar Energy Challenge Cup event – the Pro 2 Versus Pro 4 Cup Race. His brother Todd had a fine finish as well.

The Challenge Cup was the final competition of the 2010 Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series; the Pro 2 Versus Pro 4 Cup race took place on Sunday.

Held on a newly constructed course at Firebird International Raceway in Chandler, Ariz., the Pro 2 Versus Pro 4 Cup race pitted 26 Pro 4 Unlimited and Pro 2 Unlimited class trucks against each other.

The “no holds barred” competition suffered high attrition, with only 14 trucks making it to the finish.

The Pro 2 Unlimited class trucks were given a 15-second head start over the Pro 4 Unlimited trucks. Riding on 17-inch Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires, LeDuc started in 19th place and drove to the win for a $30,000 payout.

During Saturday’s Pro 4 Unlimited class race, LeDuc finished second on the 1.1-mile course, placing him second overall in the 2010 Pro 4 Unlimited class championship.

“There were no rules to follow in the Pro 2 Versus Pro 4 Cup race, so there was a lot of chaos…we made the right choices and our Toyo tires gave us really fast laps,” says LeDuc. “I am pretty pumped about winning second overall in the championship. We can go home really happy about our results and can focus on winning the championship next year.” Todd LeDuc also had a competitive run in the Pro 2 Versus Pro 4 Cup race. At the wheel of his No. 8 Rockstar/Makita Ford F-150 on Open Country M/T-R tires, he finished second in the Pro 2 Unlimited class and fourth overall.

“We congratulate Kyle LeDuc for capturing second overall in the championship and for winning the big money race of the season,” says Stan Chen, manager of events and motorsports “Our Toyo Open Country M/T-R tires helped to bring both Kyle and Todd home at the front of the race field once again.”
