Cypress, California – Legendary off-road racer Curt LeDuc has joined Team Toyo Off-Road for sponsorship of his Best In The Desert Class 8 race truck and his brand-new Pro-4 Class CORR (Championship Off-Road Racing) truck for the 2007-2010 race seasons. With an impressive 30-years of off-road racing under his belt and no stranger to Toyo’s Open Country M/T tires; the elder LeDuc will be joining his two sons, Kyle and Todd, who also compete in the CORR Series on Toyo tires.
When asked what the deciding factor in joining Team Toyo was, LeDuc stated, “Having worked with both of my sons and their Toyo Tires sponsored trucks, I was impressed to say the least, with the level of commitment and dedication that the Toyo Tires staff brings to the future of our sport in terms of professionalism, development, branding and overall driver support.”
As mentioned, brothers Kyle and Todd will also compete on Toyo Tires for the 2007 CORR season. Driving Ford trucks, Kyle will continue to race in the Pro-Lite class, while Todd will remain in the Pro-2 Class.
