Curt LeDuc Wins Class at Bilek Racing Silver State 300, Ensures Class 8000 Championship

MESQUITE, NEVADA – Curt LeDuc, driver of the Rockstar/Makita/Kal Gard Lubricants/ Toyo Tires Ford F-150 truck, won Class 8000 of the Bilek Racing Silver State 300 this past weekend. With only one event remaining in 2008 in the Best In The Desert off-road racing series, LeDuc’s 100-percent win streak means his truck will only have to start the Henderson’s Fabtech Desert Classic in December to win the Class 8000 championship. This will be the first Best In The Desert Class 8000 championship for Rockstar Makita LeDuc

Still healing from a broken leg which occurred on Labor Day weekend during a short course race in Crandon; the determined LeDuc, from Cherry Valley, California, drove the first 200-miles of the race. During the second pit stop, he handed his truck over to son, Kyle LeDuc of Beaumont, California, to drive the final 100-miles. Macrae Glass of Kingman, Arizona, remained in the co-driver’s seat during the entire race.

"We\'re proud to bring Makita Power Tools its first Off-Road Truck Championship", Curt said, "As long we start the next race it will be confirmed".
