WEEDSPORT, N.Y. – Thursday, October 15 – It’s been a highly successful season for DIRTcar NE Pro Stock driver Dave Bissonette of Cornwall, Ontario.
Bissonette finished fifth in the Pro Stock 25-lap feature during the 44th NAPA Super Dirt Week Finale at the Fairgrounds event and became the 2015 DIRTCar NE Pro Stock Series champion for the second time in three years.
Bissonette had two wins and five top-10’s in the Pro Stock Series, besting last year’s champion Jocelyn Roy by 63 points. Earlier this season, he successfully defended his Cornwall Speedway Pro Stock title.
In addition, Bissonette outpointed Nick Stone by two points and Robbie Speed by four points to earn the 2015 Mr. DIRTcar title determined by drivers’ best 16 finishes in weekly and series races.
