TORC 2009: Rick Huseman win round 4 in US-Based TORC Series.

Rick Huseman, driver of a Toyota Tundra, scored his third victory out of the first four races in "The Off-Road Racing Championship Series" (TORC) during Round 4 this Saturday at Perris Auto Speedway in Perris, California. Driving on Toyo Open Country M/TR-R tires, Huseman is now in a commanding lead of the Pro 4X4 Truck class championship. "My Toyo Tires worked awesome," said Huseman. "I drove the wheels off my truck. I didn't try to be easy on them. Other trucks had chunks coming out of their tires, but I didn't, my tires helped me win."

The LeDuc family once again scored multiple podiums, this time at Perris. Kyle LeDuc finished in third place in the Pro 4X4 Truck class on Friday night (Round 3) with his #99 Toyo Tires F-150 truck. Also focused on the championship in the Pro Light Truck class, Kyle LeDuc scored two second place finishes during the weekend to make it three in a row with his #99 Rockstar/Makita/Ford Trucks/Toyo Tires Ford Ranger.

Brother Todd LeDuc finished in third during Friday night's Pro 2WD Truck race with his #3 Ford F-150 to keep him in the points hunt for the 2009 championship.

"Rick Huseman has been on fire this year, and we congratulate him for putting Toyo Tires in the winner's circle once again," said Stan Chen, manager of events and motorsports, Toyo Tire USA. "Our congratulations also go out to Team LeDuc for keeping Toyo Tires on the podium in the pro truck classes."

The TORC racing series is an action-packed short course series with 16 pro races (eight events) across the United States including Texas, California, Wisconsin, Michigan and Nevada. Televised races can be found on both ESPN and ABC. To learn more, log on to [ ].
