September 9, 2014- Winning races and championships is nothing new for Joey Ladouceur and his race team, as they have been doing so virtually every season for nearly 20 years. However, as Ladouceur entered his first year racing on pavement in the ProCam Truck Series, it was a whole new experience for the Alexandria, Ontario driver, as a lack of experience both in the Series and with the racing surface left many wondering how well he would adapt.
It didn’t take Joey and everyone else long to realize that he was just as good on pavement as he is on a dirt racing surface. He won his very first feature that he entered back on May 31, and backed that up with a second place finish in the second of two on opening night and a second place overall result during his debut. Joey went on to win three of the 10 races over the course of the series, and finished in the top five in all but one, which happened to be a race he was leading and suffered a mechanical failure.
The final weekend of the season was just this past weekend at Autodrome Chaudière in Valley Jonction, Quebec. It was a two day event, with a makeup feature from earlier in the season planned on Friday night, and the scheduled program on Saturday. Joey won the Friday night event, extending his points lead. Saturday’s race was eventually postponed to the following day due to rain, but a strong third place finish clinched the 2014 ProCam Truck Series title for Ladouceur.
“We had a lot of fun racing in the ProCam Truck Series this year”, says Ladouceur. “It feels great to win the championship in our first year over”.
Ladouceur will compete in the remaining DIRTcar Sportsman Series races to finish out the 2014 campaign. This coming weekend he will be at Mohawk International Raceway competing in the 75 lap Pete Mitchell Memorial Race. The following weekend he will travel to Brighton Speedway and Le RPM Speedway before getting ready for Super DIRT Week events at Weedsport Speedway and the New York State Fairgrounds. The 2014 season will end at Brockville Speedway on October 18th for the 1000 Islands RV DIRTcar Northeast Fall Nationals.
