CORNWALL, ON – MAY 29, 2012 – It was a warm humid Sunday evening at Cornwall Motor Speedway, and Joey Ladouceur was back in action, looking for his first win of 2012 at Cornwall Speedway. After a fourth place finish last week in the season opening Mohawk Racing Parts Series, Ladouceur was determined to finish higher on the first regular race night at Cornwall this season.
In his qualifying heat, Ladouceur battled to victory, giving him and the team some optimism going into their 20 lap main event. As the green flag was displayed to the field, the leader was unable to get up to speed due to a flat tire, causing a multi car pile up in turn three and four. Ladouceur was in the middle of it, and escaped with only a left rear flat tire. After quick work from the Ladouceur crew, Joey was back on track ready for the restart. After carefully moving forward through the first half of the race and dodging yet another wreck, Ladouceur was soon inside the top five, and with five to go, he was up to second and challenging for the lead. Ladouceur took advantage of a late race restart to take his first win of the year at Cornwall, and third overall this season. The win was also Ladouceur’s 95th career DIRTcar Pro Stock victory.
“We had to battle for this one coming from the back”, says Ladouceur. “The leader didn’t fire on the original restart and it jammed everyone up. We got spun around, and ended up getting a flat, but fortunately we were able to come back”.
This coming weekend Ladouceur will be back at Cornwall Speedway for a 50 lap Mr. DIRTcar Pro Stock Series Race. This will be the first race in the series in which Ladouceur is the defending champion. He is also the defending race winner.
