With double features on the schedule at Cornwall Motor Speedway for Joey Ladouceur and his fellow Pro Stock competitors on Sunday (August 12) night, it was a great opportunity to get his 100th career DIRTcar Pro Stock victory on his home track in front of many of his fans.
It would have been a perfect setting to capture the memorable win. Although it didn’t happen on this night, Ladouceur remains the point leader at Cornwall with just three more weeks remaining, and is on the verge of claiming his sixth Cornwall Motor Speedway Pro Stock championship.
The night began with the makeup feature from Sunday, July 15th. Ladouceur battled from deep in the field, and struggled to climb through the field. He ended with a sixth place finish.
In his qualifying heat race for the scheduled August 12th program, Joey started from the sixth position and raced his way up to second place. After making a few adjustments to the car, Joey was back out for the second 20 lap feature of the night. He rolled off the starting grid from the 11th position. It was a struggle most of the race, and when the dust settled, Ladouceur finished in eighth place.
“You are going to have nights like that sometimes in racing”, says Ladouceur after the race. “It wasn’t a good night, but we will work hard in the shop through the week, and hope for better results next week”.
This coming week, Ladouceur will be at Mohawk Raceway on Friday night for the final round of the Bailey Motor Company Pro Stock Series.
Joey currently leads the series by just two points, and will be looking to capture that 100th career win, and his second Bailey Motor Company Pro Stock Series championship. On Sunday night, Ladouceur will return to Cornwall Motor Speedway with a 58 point lead in the battle for the Cornwall Pro Stock championship. The track title, and the Mohawk Racing Parts Pro Stock Series championship will be decided on Sunday, September 2nd.
The next Mr. DIRTcar Pro Stock Series race will take place on September 8th at Autodrome Granby.
