In one of the most dominating performances of the 2012 racing season, Joey Ladouceur took his car to victory lane at Mohawk International Raceway on Saturday afternoon in the Mr. DIRTcar Pro Stock Series. It was a long weekend, that was paused on Friday after time trials because of rain. It resumed on Saturday afternoon for the conclusion of the event.
Ladouceur started the 50 lap event from seventh place, and quickly moved forward. By lap nine he had moved into second and just three laps later he had the top spot and never looked back taking the win by nearly a half track over the second place car. The win gives Ladouceur a 20 point lead in the Mr. DIRTcar Pro Stock Standings as he continues his quest for his second straight overall championship.
“We couldn’t be happier with this win”, says Ladouceur. “It really wasn’t easy. Hopefully we can build on this and have a strong showing at Super DIRT Week in a couple weeks”.
Ladouceur will be seeking his first ever Super DIRT Week Pro Stock win on Sunday, October 7th at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse, New York. The team will be hard at work over the next couple week preparing the car for the coveted BACC-OFF Pro Stock Championship race.
"We have our longtime sponsors that are stepping up to the plate again for us in our Syracuse program and we will try to win it this year," says Ladouceur.
Once Super DIRT Week is over, there will be just one more event remaining in the 2012 season as the Mr. DIRTcar Series finale takes place at Brockville Ontario Speedway on Friday, October 12th as part of the 1000 Islands RV DIRTcar Northeast Fall Nationals.
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.
