Double Header Weekend For Ed Hakonson Racing

Stouffville, Ontario – July 11, 2018- This coming weekend will be a busy one for E.H.R as they will field 2 competitive race cars in 2 different provinces and divisions.

E.H.R. will field their NASCAR Pinty’s Series car, #3 Chevrolet driven by Cole Powell, at the Honda Indy Toronto in the Pinty’s Grand Prix. The race weekend will get underway on Friday with practice and qualifying and the main event taking place in front of some of the biggest audiences the Series will see on Saturday afternoon.

“I’m really looking forward to this weekend in front of a great Toronto crowd. I’m excited to get on track on Thursday for the driver walk to see what it is all about before I jump in the car on Friday,” said Cole Powell.

Three provinces over and some 1800 kilometers away in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Jason Hathaway will be competing in Canada’s most competitive and largest late model race to date, the IWK 250 Presented by Steve Lewis. The event draws competition from all over the Maritimes and takes place in front of a sold-out crowd each year. It is a fundraiser for the IWK Children’s hospital in Halifax and a favourite of Hathaway’s.

“We built this late model last year so I could have some fun, but really focused on running this event. This is a charity close to our family and we are really excited about getting back to the track on Saturday. We ran a Parts for Trucks tour race back in June as a warm-up and we think we have a great piece that can be up front for sure this weekend,” said Hathaway, the driver of the #3 Kubota Chevrolet.

The Team is truly proud to be able to field both teams this weekend and is excited about the opportunity. The ability to field 2 competitive race cars is a true testament to the great preparation in the shop, the leadership of Hathaway, the loyalty of the Team’s sponsors and the dedication of the Team’s crew. Go team Go!
