HATHAWAY BATTLES BACK FOR PODIUM FINISH AT EDMONTON

                     

WETASKIWIN, ALBERTA-July 11, 2015– The first race of w two on the annual western Swing proved eventful for Hathaway as he battled his way back to secure a podium finish at the Albert Has Energy 300 at Edmonton International Raceway Saturday night.

Hathaway and his team worked on their #3 Fast Eddie Racewear/HGC Chevrolet and started in the 12th spot in the super tight field of cars.

 

The first part of the race, the team struggled with the set-up of the car and without any caution flags the crew wasn’t able to come down pit road for adjustments. With laps ticking away and the car off, Hathaway went a lap down to the leader. At the half way mandatory break, the team made the adjustments they needed, fueled up Hathaway’s race machine, put 2 brand new tires on it and sent him back out to earn his lap back. Hathaway received the free pass, after being the first car a lap down, earning his lap back and focused on getting his machine to the front of the pack.

 

Hathaway put on a great show for the fans as he worked his way through the field and battled back to post a 3rd place podium finish.

 

“We had a hard time at the beginning of the race.” Said Hathaway during post-race activities. “The car was super tight.  We made our adjustments at the break and the car was great after that. I am proud of all of our boys, we didn’t give up and we came out of this event with a podium finish! I really appreciate all of the boys work to get us out here and how they battled back tonight.”

 

The 3rd place finished keeps Hathaway out in front of the Championship point’s battle heading into the last race of the western swing with Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 on Wednesday at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
