It was pretty much ordained that Kyle LeDuc would elevate to the status of top Baja-style off-road racer. When you spend your weekends as a kid watching your dad charge across the Baja California desert in a 4x4 off-road truck it’s a natural selection/progression the son of one of the modern day gods of off-road racing to follow in his father’s (Curt) trail of dust. Cutting his teeth – like many to off-roaders do – on dirt bikes, LeDuc, put his foot into his first pro off-road race at age 19 and hasn’t let off the gas since. A first-time winner on the then Championship Off-Road Racing (CORR) series back in 2003, LeDuc locked down his first Pro 4x4 win in 2008 and continues to challenge the world’s best in the uniquely American sport of short course off-road racing. His 900-horspower, Toyo Tires shod Ford truck rocketed out to a 1st/1st podium finish in LeDuc’s first weekend of racing as a Monster Energy-backed athlete. And it ain’t gonna be the last time he runs the M-claw logo up to the top of the LOORRS podium – count on that!
