After a dream season in 2011 for Joey Ladouceur and his Alexandria, Ontario based DIRTcar Pro Stock team, the accolades from the past season have now spilled over into 2012 as Joey was named Inside Track’s Canadian Dirt Track Racer of the Year.
The award was voted on by the fans on the Inside Track website, and was handed out during the annual Canadian Motorsports Expo in Toronto this past weekend. Inside Track Reader’s Choice Awards were also presented to other Canadian racing stars in other motorsports categories. Other winners included 2 time NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Champion Scott Steckley as will IZOD Indy Car Rookie of the year James Hinchcliffe.
“I am very proud to win this award and be on stage with some of the best racers in Canada last season”, says Ladouceur after accepting the award. “I really have to thank all of my family, friends and fans that voted for me each day throughout the duration of the contest”.
With a season that produced 11 feature wins, 20 top five finishes, 22 top ten finishes in just 23 starts, Ladouceur also won the Mr. DIRTcar Pro Stock championship, the Cornwall Speedway track championship, the Bailey Motor Company Pro Stock Champion and the Mohawk Race Parts Pro Stock title.
“We had a phenomenal season, and it was nice to reflect one more time on our accomplishments”, says Ladouceur. “We are excited about getting the 2012 season underway now, and hope we can have an even better season”.
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, Au Vieux Duluth, 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.
