May 22, 2013- After a long off-season, Joel Doiron finally got the 2013 racing season underway this past weekend. First up was the opening night event’s at Mohawk International Raceway in Hogansburg, New York, followed by the 100 lap Mr. DIRTcar Series/Canadian Nationals Series opener at Cornwall Speedway.
At Mohawk Raceway, Doiron started his 10 lap qualifying heat race from the fourth position, and quickly moved forward, taking the lead before completing lap two. He remained in the top spot and took the victory in the preliminary event. By winning the third heat race, Doiron earned the third starting position for the 25 lap main event. At the end of the 25 lap event, Doiron maintained that third place result.
“It was a good way to start the year with a strong run like that”, says Doiron. “Hopefully the next time we come back here, we will be able to work on the setup some more and be up there battling for the win”.
The Cornwall Speedway season opener was set for Sunday night, and was going to be a big night with the DIRTcar 358 Modified Series/Canadian Nationals Series 100 lap event on the schedule. Rain halted any plans on this night, as track officials were forced to postpone the 100 lap race until this coming Sunday night. The DIRTcar Series portion of the program will now tag onto the Canadian Nationals Series race scheduled for August 4th.
