The 2012 season was filled with some great moments for Joel Doiron and his family highlighted by his Dad, Ovide Doiron being elected into the DIRT Motorsports Hall of Fame. On the track, Doiron had a solid 2012 campaign that had him in championship contention at Cornwall Speedway throughout the season.
Doiron’s only weekly track was Cornwall Motor Speedway in 2012. He started the year with a 12th place finish in the Mr. DIRTcar 358 Modified season opener. Over the next couple months, he posted eight consecutive top ten finishes at Cornwall Speedway, and emerged as a serious contender for the championship late in the season. He ended the season with nine top ten finishes and finished fourth overall in track points. He also finished second in the Doiron Cup championship that tallied points for the qualifying heats each week and was eighth overall in the Canadian Nationals Series.
“We had a solid year at Cornwall this year. We didn’t get a win this year, but we had some strong finishes, and remained in contention for the championship coming down to the final couple races”, says Doiron. “We will continue to work hard and hopefully we will be even stronger next year”.
The highlight of the 2012 season came at Brockville Speedway in his only appearance at the track this season during the Mr. DIRTcar 358 Modified race during the Fall Nationals Weekend last month He posted a strong third place finish with a great field of cars on hand for the season finale.
