Ladouceur Soars To First Brockville DIRTcar Win

Eastern Ontario Eavestrough was on hand this past Saturday night at the Brockville Ontario Speedway and the crowd was treated to some exciting racing in all four classes.

The Novice Sportsman division hit the track first for a 12-lap feature event.

Jordan Wood was looking to win his third feature of the season as he led the first five laps over Shawn Hodge and Paul Donnelly. Wood had a great car, but Hodge was closing in quickly and looking for the lead.

On lap eight, Hodge made his move as he took the lead away from Wood, who was now in a battle for second with Donnelly. Over the final laps, Hodge would make it look easy as he pulled away for his second win of the season and added to his points lead as well.

Jordan Wood, Paul Donnelly, Nathan Lambert and Marco McCarthy completed the top five.

In the DIRTcar 358 Modified feature, it was Madison Mulder leading the early laps over Lee Ladouceur, Terry McClelland, Chris Herbison and Joe Banks.

Mulder was fast early, but Ladouceur was on a mission to get to the front as he shot by Mulder off turn two to grab the lead. Chris Herbison was also on the move taking second and went in search of Ladouceur.

On lap 10, Herbison took his turn at the front with Ladouceur and Banks now making up the top three. Behind them, Kyle Dingwall, Ryan Arbuthnot and points leader Chris Raabe were on their way forward as they charged into the top five just past the halfway point.

Herbison was out in front and it appeared as if he was well on his way to his third win of the season. However, on lap 23, Steve Bilow skated off the top of turn four, which gave Ladouceur the break he was wanting.

On the restart, Ladouceur and Herbison were side by side. Ladouceur gained the top spot in turn three.

Herbison tried to get back by, but was finding himself in a battle with Arbuthnot, Dingwall and Raabe for position. Over the final laps, Ladouceur proved to be too much as he claimed his first Brockville Modified win after years of trying, putting car owner Jim Primrose in the winners circle yet again.

Chris Herbison came home in second. Dingwall, Raabe and Arbuthnot completed the top five.

Former Street Stock champion Michael Dillon led early in the 25-lap DIRTcar Sportsman feature with Evan Reynolds, Josh Powers, Tyler Stewart and Ricky Thompson making up the top five.

Even with the lead, Dillon found himself in a battle with Evan Reynolds in the early stages of the event. However, Josh Powers was quickly making his way forward. On lap nine, Powers took over the lead, sending Dillon back to second and Bobby Herrington to third.

After picking up his fourth win of the season just a week ago, the defending track champion would charge to second and quickly close in on Powers for the lead.

With 10 laps to go, Herrington would use the inside lane off turn two to grab the top spot.

Behind the leader, Powers found himself in a late race battle with Xavier Andrews who was on the move and looking for the runner up spot. This night would belong to Bobby Herrington, as he scored his third win in a row and fifth of the season.

Powers settled for second over Andrews, Dylan Kirkland and Reynolds.

The 15-lap Supernant Truck Shop Mini Stock feature saw defending track champion Jarrod Galway take the lead over Max Steele and Tyson Slinger. With Galway and Steele in command, the real race was between six drivers for third.

An incredible six-car battle, which resembled a high speed pace lap, saw drivers battling for position two by two, three rows deep. A quick yellow would end that battle as the field bunched up for another restart.

When the green flew, Galway once again remained in control over Steele, with Jamie Larocque charging to third.

Over the final laps, Jarrod Galway would erase all his bad luck this season as he scored his second win of the year. Max Steele would finish a career best second over Larocque, Skylar Ladouceur and Matt Boal.

Modified Feature (30 Laps): Lee Ladouceur, Chris Herbison, Kyle Dingwall, Chris Raabe, Ryan Arbuthnot, Joe Banks, Tristan Draper, Jarrett Herbison, Johnathon Ferguson, Madison Mulder, Terry McClelland, Kalen Draper, John Mulder, Tommy Jock Jr., Steve Bilow, Jeff Sykes
