Anderson, SC – After a solid first outing in the #4 Woodman Racing Super Late Model, Joey Doiron made the trek down south once again for the second Pro All Stars Series South and the first in the PASS National championship at Anderson Motor Speedway in Anderson, South Carolina. After working on the car’s handling throughout the day, the team got the car right for the feature. Doiron drove to the front and fought with eventual winner Ben Rowe for the win after contact while racing for the win lead to Doiron finishing the event in the sixth position.
“I’m proud of how far we came today, this car was really good at the beginning of the race,” Doiron said of his race, “I was racing with Ben (Rowe) and we were putting on a great race and unfortunately we just got together a little bit and it knocked our toe out, it was just hard racing for the win, that’s what people come here to see.”
Doiron was mid-pack throughout the three practice sessions before qualifying, and the team was working hard to get the car dialed in to Doiron’s liking around the tricky 3/8th mile track with 14 degrees of banking. In qualifying, Doiron turned a 15.590 and that set him in the 11th position for the start of the 150 lapper. Right from the start, the team had dialed the car in and Doiron was headed to the front. After making his way through the field quickly, Doiron set his sights on multiple time PASS champion Ben Rowe for the race lead. The two fought side by side for the lead, but contact between the two bent the toe out of the front end of the #4 Woodman Racing machine. Fighting the toe out for the rest of the race, Doiron ended the event in the sixth position.
The next race for Joey Doiron will come in two weeks at Hickory Motor Speedway in Newton, North Carolina for the 10th Annual “Easter Bunny 150.” In his last event at Hickory two years ago, Doiron finished 23rd in the Easter Bunny 150, but after two strong runs to start the season, he is confident in being able to race for the win this time around. Feature racing will start at 5:00PM on April 4th at the famed short track.
