Perris, CA - May 28, 2009 -- The excitement of short-course racing will be back in California this weekend during rounds 3 & 4 of the Traxxas TORC Series! Fans will once again experience the fender-banging action and see the brightest stars in off-road racing as the fun thunders into Perris Auto Speedway on May 29th - 30th in Perris, CA.

Team LeDuc will be hitting the dirt and looking to add to the trophy collection as Curt, Todd and Kyle charge ahead for podiums in the Pro Light, Pro 2WD and Pro 4WD classes. "We are very excited to be back in California and we couldn't ask for a better venue than Perris Auto Speedway. The track looks awesome and it is great to be competing with a group of truly competitive and talented drivers. I am sure there will be some great racing for the fans and the cameras this weekend!" remarked Curt LeDuc.

Earning a second place podium in the Pro 4WD class during round one at the Texas Motor Speedway, Curt will be back battling it out in the No. 43 Rockstar Energy / Makita Ford. Kyle will also join in on the Pro 4WD fun and will be looking to claim a podium win after a hard fought third place finish during round two. With the first two rounds of TORC Series racing all tallied up, Kyle is currently ranked 2nd in points in the Pro 4WD class.

Capturing a third place podium during round one and a solid fourth place finish during round two, Todd LeDuc is currently fifth in the Pro 2WD points chase in his No. 3 Rockstar Energy / Makita Ford. With just ten points separating Todd from first, the second TORC Series event is sure to be a hotly contested race.

After starting in the last row in the field of inverted six, Kyle LeDuc not only tore up the track and put down the fastest overall lap time, he successfully captured the second place podium during round two in his No. 99 Leatt Brace / Rockstar Energy Pro Light.

Heading east after this weekend's racing, Team LeDuc Racing will be looking to heat up Crandon, WI during rounds 5 and 6 of the Traxxas TORC Series on June 19 - 20, 2009.
