Alexandria’s veteran Pro-Stock driver Rock Aubin couldn’t believe his own ears when he was declared feature winner on Friday September 7th at Autodrome RPM Speedway (Qc).
“It was a 50-lap Dirt Series event and with only 1 lap to go I was running when the top cars crashed in front of me” recalls Aubin. “My car sustained some damages but I stayed on the track for the final lap. At the checkered flag I was second, but the leader’s car was found too light at the scale so the victory came to me. That was awesome!”
This Series feature win gives Aubin guarantee starting positions for both Super DIRT Week XLVII, which will be held on October 5-7th in Oswego (N-Y), and for the World Short Track championship held the first weekend of November at the Charlotte (NC) DIRT track.
“It was already in our plans to make it to Charlotte this year, now that we are guaranteed starters we will be there for sure!” concludes the driver of the #4 Alexandria Home Hardware Pro-stock machine.
