4th Place Finish For Hathaway At Grand Prix De Trois Rivieres
August 11, 2013- Trois Rivieres, Quebec- Hathaway and his #3 Snap-on Tools/ Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge returned to the belle province of Quebec this weekend for the JuliaWine.com 100. Hathaway and his Team’s results at the road courses this season have been top 5 efforts and this weekend was no exception.
In search of a comfortable balance to last the entire 42 lap event on Sunday, Hathaway and his team made some changes to the car after practice and qualified 12th in a 30 car field deep in road course talent.
Hathaway and his team had found that balance he was looking for. “We ran okay in practice, but not how I wanted to be set up for the race, so we made some changes and I think we made some good adjustments. We have a pretty solid chance at a good finish this weekend.” Said Hathaway during the huge autograph session flanked by the popular Rockstar models.
With the drop of the green flag, Hathaway set out on his mission to show what he could do on the 11 turn, 1.5 mile road course. Hathaway’s car was handling well and by the half-way point was up to 6th in the running order.
Having to fight off some strong competition on restarts held his own and battled as he headed for the top 5 which included road course specialists, Andrew Ranger, Alex Tagliani and Jacques Villeneuve. Hathaway used his well handling car on a late race restart to make a great pass in corner one and brought home an awesome 4th place finish in front of some 30,000 spectators trackside.
“We had a great finish here this weekend. Our hard work in the shop is paying off each weekend and we are really happy to finish well in front of our Snap-on guests here today. Said Hathaway while in post-race technical inspection with his race machine.
The JuliaWine.com 100 was televised live on RDS Sunday afternoon and will premiere on TSN on Sunday August 18 at 4:30 EST.
The Team will be in action next weekend at the high banked oval track of Riverside International Speedway in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, in the Wilson Equipment 300 August 17th.
