February 16, 2021- Stouffville, Ontario- After 2 years of running under the Ed Hakonson Racing banner in 2 different car numbers, Brett Taylor will be piloting the #3 machine in the 2021 NASCAR Pinty’s Series campaign.

Taylor, hailing from Calgary, Alberta is excited about the opportunity to be driving the #3. “EHR has proven that they are at the top in the series and I am extremely proud to be part of their program. They are a passionate group about racing and have been extremely supportive both on and off the track right from the beginning of when we started to work together.”

Team Manager Jason Hathaway, who drove the #3 for the past 14 years, is looking forward to the team’s continued winning ways with Taylor. “Brett came to us a few years ago with a desire to be competitive in the series and we put a plan in place to help him do that. His win at Jukasa in 2019 was a great indication of the work that this team has put into his program. We are excited about what the 2021 season will bring for the #3.”

“Getting into a Championship ride is a pretty unique opportunity and I don’t take it for granted at all,” continued Taylor. “Jason and the entire team dominated last season and it didn’t happen by chance. The amount of training, work on the car, the connection of the crew and their pursuance of excellence is second to none. There is true chemistry between them. When you combine that with top-notch equipment and the high standards under Ed Hakonson’s ownership I feel confident that we are lined up to do some great things this season.”

The NASCAR Pinty’s Series recently announced its 2021 schedule. It includes 12 races at 8 different tracks, including the Series inaugural event on the dirt at Ohsweken Speedway. The season will kick off at Sunset Speedway on May 23rd and will feature 8 ovals and 4 road course events.
