Kyle LeDuc Obituary-Death News; The Off-Road Racing Star, Kyle LeDuc Passes Away

One of the most prosperous and well-liked off-road racers in the sport’s history was Kyle LeDuc. With his aggressive and spectacular racing style, he garnered millions of spectators, dozens of races, and seven Pro 4 truck titles.

In the brand-new electric racing series Extreme E, he was a trailblazer as well, winning a historic race for Chip Ganassi Racing.

But a heartbreaking diagnosis of stage IV head and neck cancer, which he fought for a year before passing away on November 11, 2023, ended his life and career. Kyle LeDuc, an off-road champion, passed away.

Kyle LeDuc joined the brand-new Extreme E electric off-road racing series in 2020 with the goal of promoting climate change action and awareness-raising.

He was teamed with former rally and motocross racer Sara Price to drive for Chip Ganassi Racing. The team had to adjust to a new car, race in difficult and isolated places, and handle mechanical problems and fines, among other difficulties.

They did, however, also demonstrate their quickness and brilliance, placing third in the first two rounds in Senegal and Saudi Arabia.

Kyle and Sara created history in the third round in Greenland when they won the inaugural Island X Prix, marking Chip Ganassi Racing’s first Extreme E triumph.

Unaware of the terrible news that was ahead of them, they rejoiced and felt proud of themselves for their victory.

Kyle was diagnosed with stage IV head and neck cancer, an uncommon and aggressive type of the disease that had spread to his lymph nodes and lungs, not long after he returned from Greenland.

In June 2021, he made public his illness and declared that he will be unable to compete for the remainder of the season.
