The Championship Off-Road Racing Series (CORR) returned to The Quarry in Chula Vista, California along with defending Pro 4 defending class champion Carl Renezeder and Kyle LeDuc.

LeDuc held off Renezeder over the final five laps to win the race. It was the second win in three races for Pro 4 rookie LeDuc. The Rockstar Makita Team LeDuc member is now fourth in the overall point standings after 11 of 16 rounds in the eight-race season.

LeDuc started the 15-lap race in his Rockstar Makita Ford with K&N Filters fifth on the grid, two spots behind his father and team leader Curt LeDuc. He followed his father to the front early in the first lap. The two completed the initial circuit of the 0.8 mile course with Kyle first and Curt second.

After seven laps Kyle was 2.8 seconds ahead of Renezeder. Rick Huseman was in third place and Curt in fourth. On lap 10 Kyle and Renezeder began to battle as Curt was forced to pull over due to engine trouble. Kyle took the win about 1.2 seconds ahead of Renezeder.

“We’re running up front now,” said Kyle LeDuc. “We’re one of the big boys. This is one of those dreams that have come true. When you get the right people and try hard it all works.”

Crew chief Daniel Llewellyn said the preparation work was a key component for the win along with the influence of Kyle’s older brother and spotter Todd LeDuc. “The first half of the race was easy,” said Kyle. “After the caution it was a hard race. Todd did a great job of keeping me focused. He could see Carl trying to pass me and show me a fender, but he didn’t tell me. He just kept me calm.”

Team LeDuc continues to use K&N air and oil filters on and off the track. “We can depend on K&N filters,” said LeDuc. “K&N makes a reliable product that works for us.”

Todd LeDuc ran in the Pro 2 class, but finished seventh after a mid-race collision. He remains third overall in points.
