On Saturday, Kyle LeDuc, a former Pro Lite champion, proved he could make the transition to the heavier and faster Pro 4 class. “We’re fast and we’re up front with the leaders,” said team founder Curt LeDuc. “We’re going to be a threat the rest of the season.”

At the start of the Pro 2 field, Todd LeDuc moved from fifth on the grid to second after only two laps. He took the lead briefly on lap 13 before Rob MacCachren passed him to win. They finished one-two and LeDuc moved up one spot to second in the point standings. “It was a great race,” said Todd LeDuc. “I was driving smart and a little conservative.”

In Sunday’s Pro 4 race, Rick Huseman took the lead from pole sitter Curt LeDuc at lap two. Kyle LeDuc eventually moved into second place. He took over first after Rick Huseman was shown the black flag for what race officials felt was rough driving. Two laps later, Kyle slowed down on the back stretch. His car had a broken rear driveshaft.

The race continued and Scott Douglas took the lead with Curt LeDuc in pursuit. At Turn 5 Curt LeDuc was shown the black flag. “Carl Rendezer checked up,” said Curt LeDuc. “I expected him to be gone by the time I got there and he wasn’t. I touched him, so I got a black flag and pulled off.” Curt LeDuc pulled into the pits on the final lap and finished eighth. Kyle LeDuc finished ninth. “It would have been nice to back up my win on Saturday,” he said. “What can you do? We can’t stop now."

“We use K&N air and oil filters on and off the track,” said Curt LeDuc. “We can always count on the reliability of K&N products.”

Rockstar Makita Team LeDuc is looking ahead to the next event in Chula Vista, California on September 13-14.
