After struggling last week at Mohawk Raceway, Joey Ladouceur made a late decision to return again this week after making several changes to his car. With big events in Quebec on the horizon, Ladouceur felt the opportunity to test those changes without points on line was going to be very important. He also returned to Cornwall Speedway on Sunday after getting rained out last Sunday night.
At Mohawk Raceway, Ladouceur started the 20-lap Pro Stock main event from the sixth starting spot. He worked his way up steadily, and took the lead on lap eight and never looked back. The win was his 97th career DIRTcar Pro Stock victory, which leads all Pro Stock competitors in the history of the class.
“We really struggled here last week in the series race, and we had to come back after making some changes to the car,” said Ladouceur. “We have some big races coming up next week, and I wasn’t comfortable going into those races not knowing how well the changes would work.”
On Sunday, Ladouceur was back at Cornwall Speedway. After starting at the back of his qualifying heat, he charged to the front to grab the lead before they completed lap two and went on to win. In the 20-lap feature, Ladouceur charged through the field to take the top spot briefly, but dropped to second in the closing laps.
This coming week will be busy for Ladouceur, with three events lined up in Quebec. On Friday night, he will be at Autodrome Granby for a combined Mr. DIRTcar Pro Stock/Mohawk Racing Parts Pro Stock series event, and then on to Autodrome Drummond on Saturday for a similar event. On Sunday, Ladouceur and team will be at Le RPM Speedway in St. Marcel, QC, for a standalone Mohawk Racing Parts Series event.
