KYLE LEDUC GETS BACK-TO-BACK WINS AND CURT LEDUC RACES WITH BROKEN LEG

    This past weekend at CORR in Chula Vista, CA. was an extremely successful one for Kyle LeDuc of Rockstar Makita LeDuc as he finished in 1st place on both Saturday and Sunday.  Kyle finished at least 2 seconds ahead of the second place finishers on both days.  Kyle’s dad Curt LeDuc – despite breaking his leg the previous weekend – decided it was too important to miss out on possible points and raced both days.  Curt unfortunately broke his front axel and ended up getting 15th on Saturday and then had a strong finish in 7th on Sunday.  In the Pro 2 class Todd LeDuc finished 7th on Saturday and was in 3rd place on Sunday until the last turn where he got spun around by Skyjacker’s Scott Taylor which forced him to finish 13th.  Brian Deegan started in dead last on both days and worked his way all the way up to the fifth spot both times until being hit with a black flag on Saturday and then didn’t finish because of transmission problems on Sunday.  It would have been Deegan’s first top-5 finish.  Jimmy Weitzel of DragonFire Makita Polaris finished a strong 8th on Saturday and 12th on Sunday in the UTV class.
    You can catch all of Sunday’s action on NBC Sports on Sunday October 5th at 11:30am – 1:00pm Pacific (2:30pm – 4:00pm Eastern) Rockstar Makita LeDuc and DragonFire Makita Polaris will be back on the track on October 25-26 in Primm, NV.  Saturday’s race will be broadcasted LIVE on the SPEED Channel at 1:00pm – 3:00pm Pacific (4:00pm – 6:00pm Eastern) and on Sunday it will be LIVE on NBC Sports at 11:30am – 1:00pm Pacific (2:30am – 4:00pm Eastern). For more information, pictures and videos go to www.makitatools.com/action.
