The 2012 season has been filled with some outstanding highlights for Joey Ladouceur and his Pro Stock team. He has scored eight feature wins to date, including his 100th career DIRTcar Pro Stock feature win just two weeks earlier, and has already claimed his second straight Bailey Motor Company Pro Stock championship. This past weekend, Ladouceur entered Cornwall Speedway for the final time in 2012 with his fourth consecutive track championship all but wrapped up, and also had a convincing lead in the Mohawk Racing Parts Pro Stock Series with their final 40 lap feature on the schedule to end the regular season.
In the 40 lap race at Cornwall on Sunday night, Ladouceur was making his way through the field patiently in the first half of the race, and had climbed to as high as third place on lap 24 before getting blatantly taken out by a lapped car. Joey restarted the race from the rear of the field, while the culprit was parked for the night. When the race restarted with 16 lap remaining, Ladouceur charged through the field, and would climb back to fourth place at the checkered flag.
“We had a great season here, and our proud of our accomplishments”, says Ladouceur after the race. “I really have to thank the team, my family, and all of our fans and sponsors for their support. It seems like we have had to deal with some issues on the track the past few weeks from other drivers, but I guess that is part of racing when you are having success”.
This coming weekend, Joey will be at Autodrome Granby on Saturday, September 8th as the Mr. DIRTcar Pro Stock Series resumes. He currently sits fourth in the series point standings, but only 34 points out of the top spot as he looks to claim his second consecutive and third overall Mr. DIRTcar Pro Stock Series championship. Following the race in Granby, Ladouceur will move on to Mohawk Raceway the following week, then on to the New York Sate Fairgrounds in Syracuse for Super DIRT Week on October 7th and will conclude the 2012 season with the Mr. DIRTcar Pro Stock Championship race at Brockville Speedway on October 12th.
Joey Ladouceur would like to thank all of the sponsors that are on board for the 2012 racing season. Coffrage 20-20/Pompage 20-20, Fence Depot, Minimax Express, Glengarry Truck Centre, Gauvreau Terre de Surface, Stinger X Chassis and Finish Line Web Design are all an integral part of the Ladouceur team and they look forward to sharing their success with all of you.
