TORC 2009: Rick Huseman win US-TORC Pro 4X4 Truck Championship.

Rick Huseman, driver of a Toyota Tundra, won the US-based Pro 4X4 Truck class championship for The Off-Road Championship (TORC) series at Las Vegas Speedway last weekend. Finishing second overall is Kyle LeDuc with Ford F-150, making it a 1-2 finish for Toyo Tires in the Pro 4X4 Truck class championship in TORC. Both Huseman and LeDuc's 900-horsepower trucks rely on Toyo Open Country M/TR-R tires for grip. "I am really stoked to win this championship with Toyo Tires. It is great to finally get this," said Huseman. "My Open Country M/T-R tires have been flawless all year, working better than any other tires. I am glad to be on Toyo's."

Huseman also captured seven 'Oakley Bomb Run' awards (fastest lap of the race) out of 16 races during the season and finished the season with 336-points. Prior to the 2009 season, Huseman finished in the runner-up spot in five short course off-road race championships. Last year, he was tied for the championship lead in CORRT in the Pro 4T class before the season was suddenly cut short just before its finale.

Kyle LeDuc earned 322-points in the championship and captured four 'Oakley Bomb Run' awards, the next highest amount awarded in the class. During Round 15 on Friday night he led his father Curt across the finish line for the series' first-ever son/father 1-2 finish. Curt LeDuc's Las Vegas podiums continued during Round 16 Saturday night as he wheeled his Ford F-150 past the checkered flag for a third place finish.

"This was one of the worst race tracks we raced on all year, changing from wet to a dust bowl. It was hard to convert from wet to dry, but our Toyo Tires handled the job," said Kyle LeDuc. "We (LeDucs) won a lot of races this year with our Open Country M/T-R tires."

Also pursuing a championship in the Pro 2WD Truck class was Todd LeDuc, Kyle's brother, also with a Ford F-150. Todd LeDuc finished with two solid fourth place finishes to close out the TORC series Pro 2WD Truck class championship in third overall. He also captured two 'Oakley Bomb Run' awards during the 2009 season.
