Lucas Oil Midwest Series - Here We Come!

Kenda Takes on Lucas Oil Midwest Series

March 30, 2018 / Automotive News

Kenda has been working with Crandon, Bark River & ERX to assist a smooth transition from TORC to the Lucas Oil Midwest Series after TORC suspended operations for 2018 (read more here). The key element for Kenda is continuing to run DOT tires in a competitive setting which allows us to demonstrate the performance in extreme environments for the same products as our consumers can purchase. Additionally, there will be opportunities in the future to have our tires in both the Midwest and the West race venues. We are very excited about the Lucas investment in short course Off-Road racing!


We plan to support a minimum of 3 drivers in the following Pro competition levels:


Pro-Light division

  • Shawn Morris
  • Chad Rayford
  • Matt Siorek

Kenda will have our KR29 Klever M/T on these vehicles


Pro2 division

  • Mike Vanden Heuvel
  • Cody Conrad
  • Mark Peterson

 Kenda will have both our KR29 Klever M/T and new Klever R/T on these vehicles
