CORR 2007: Josh Baldwin triple podiums and Kyle LeDuc wins




Josh Baldwin, driving the 850+ horsepower Baldwin Racing / Toyo Tires Ford F-150 truck, demonstrated his podium finishing consistency in the Pro 4T category during the Championship Off-Road Racing (CORR) 2007 series final weekend on the newly constructed Las Vegas International Off-Road Raceway at Primm, Nevada.

On Saturday, Baldwin finished second in the Pro 4 race over a field of 14 trucks and finished first in the Jason Baldwin Memorial Cup Qualifier. During Sunday's races, Josh Baldwin once again proved his strength by finishing third in the Pro 4 category of the Jason Baldwin Memorial Cup after making his way from near the back of the large field of the top competitors assembled in the CORR series. Baldwin then backed that up with another third on Sunday in the Pro 4 class feature.

"Our team put together a great truck for me this weekend and it showed in the results," said Josh Baldwin. "Our KMC wheels were putting up with an incredible amount of abuse on the huge jumps, and the Toyo tires were giving me so much traction that I could really feel the truck pulling out of the corners. Winning our qualifying heat for the Jason Baldwin Cup was a great start but to then go out in front of a fantastic crowd and run in the front with the best in the sport was the highlight of our season."

Kyle LeDuc, driving the Ford Ranger, continued to display his strength by winning the Pro-LiteT class feature race on Saturday. His victory was especially rewarding as he outpaced 26 hungry competitors in the race. During Sunday's Pro 2T class races brother, Todd LeDuc, piloted his Ford truck to a strong second place finish out of a 19-truck field.

"We congratulate Josh Baldwin on his podium winning consistency all weekend and to Kyle LeDuc for his exciting victory," said Ramses Perez, project manager of events, Toyo Tire (U.S.A.) Corporation. "Our Open Country M/T tires worked extremely well at this event which was run on the same soil that is common throughout the desert racing circuits of southern Nevada."
