11TH PLACE FOR HATHAWAY AT PINTY’S GRAND PRIX

Toronto, Ontario July 16, 2016– Hathaway and his #3 Raybestos/Fast Eddie Racewear Chevrolet returned to the Honda Indy Toronto this season on the 5th stop of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series on Saturday afternoon.

Starting from the 10th starting position Hathaway wasted no time moving up the running order. By the end of the first corner of the opening lap Hathaway was P9 and made steady progress each and every lap. Just before the half way point of the race Hathaway made an aggressive move on the 4th place car, but couldn’t quite make it stick and spun the car in the corner. Hathaway fired the car back up, but lost quite a few spots.

A late race caution limited the laps Hathaway had to make up those lost positions, but managed to make it all the way back up to 11th in the running order as the checkered flag flew on the 35 lap event.

“The car was really well balanced and I’m proud of what we achieved this weekend. We made steady moves towards the front and were running in the top 4 and that shows again what this team is capable of. Graham put a great set up in the car and all of my guys gave me a great car today. We had a lot of fun this weekend and that is what our team needed after the last few weeks!” Said Hathaway after the race.

The Team will make the annual trip out west this week with their first of two events taking place at Wetaskiwin Speedway south of Edmonton, Alberta on Saturday July 23rd. They will trek further east to Saskatoon to Wyatt International Speedway for the mid-week appearance on July 27th

T3R/EHR is also proud to be partnered with sponsors Raybestos Brakes, Fast Eddie Racewear, The Harman Group, DSI, Choko Motorsports and BIO 2000 Pressure Wash.
