It didn’t take long for Joey Ladouceur to find victory lane in the 2012 season. In his first race of the new year, Ladouceur captured the 25 lap main event over a stellar field of Pro Stock and Can Am Street Stock competitors.
The Ladouceur family has been a big part of the history at Can Am Motorsports Park, with Joey’s father Laurent winning many races in the Modified and Late Model divisions in the late 80’s and early 90’s. With the Pro Stocks not part of the regular racing program at Can Am for many year, Ladouceur had not been on the track in quite a long time, but you wouldn’t know it by Saturday’s results.
After finishing second in his qualifying heat coming from the eighth position, Ladouceur made some minor adjustments on his car before the main event. The adjustments proved to be just what they needed as Ladouceur got a great start, and took the lead just four laps into the race. Ladouceur clearly had the fastest car on the track, but a series of late race cautions made Ladouceur get up on the wheel the final laps of the race.
“Those restarts were pretty intense there towards the end of the race”, explains Ladouceur. “We had a great car, and I wasn’t going to settle for second. It has been a long time since a Ladouceur has visited victory lane here at Can Am, and my first win here, so it is pretty exciting”.
Ladouceur’s next race is still not set in stone yet, as the team may travel back to Can Am, or visit Mohawk International Raceway when they open in a couple weeks. He will be back to defend his title at Cornwall Motor Speedway when they open for the new season on Sunday, May 20th.
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.
