CRANDON, Wis. — Brothers Kyle and Cody Kleiman of Wilson recorded a first at the 49th World Championship Off-Road Races here this weekend by finishing one-two for the second straight year in the Pro Light division.

Kyle emerged from a three-way tie for second place, just one point back, to win the final race Saturday in round seven and claimed the season title, with his brother second.

It is the first time brothers have finished one-two in consecutive seasons.

Sunday, in the third annual Crandon World Cup races (Lucas Oil Midwest vs. Lucas Oil West Coast) non-points race, Kyle Kleiman finished second to West Coast winner Brock Heger. Cody Kleiman moved into third place with two laps remaining but caught a rut and rolled his car, which caught on fire.

Midwest racers Cory Winner, Shawn Morris and Cam Reimers followed Kyle Kleiman across the finish line.
