A new racing season has begun in our area and each race team has high expectations.

Alexandria’s Chris Raabe admits that the number 1 team struggled a bit in this pre-season event. “We are using the same car as last year but we made some upgrades”, comments Raabe. “Sometimes it takes a few races to find the right setting.”

The former Mr DIRTcar small block champion won the feature race on opening night (May 24th) at Mohawk International Raceway (NY) and finished second last Sunday night at Cornwall Motor Speedway.

Joey Ladouceur, also from Alexandria won his heat race on May 26th at Cornwall Motor Speedway and had a strong top-6 finish.

Among the top contenders for the 2019 358 Modified’s title are Glengarrians Chris Raabe (car #01) and Joey Ladouceur (car#23). They and many other local racers can be seen in action every Sunday night at Cornwall Motor Speedway. Pictures by Rickattheraces.com and by S.Lauwers
