July 4, 2010- Eustache, Quebec– Jason Hathaway, EHR/T3R and the #3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge arrived at St Eustache, Quebec north of Montreal for the third stop on the 2010 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series this weekend.
Hathaway, with numerous laps at St Eustache running a late model, and the Team was looking for a great weekend result. Practice was a struggle for the team, but a late practice change set the car straight and prepared Jason for qualifying. Late afternoon qualifying saw Hathaway post a 5th place starting position, the Team’s highest qualifying effort to date, starting inside row three for the 250 lap event.
“We tried a little a something different this week for qualifying and it worked pretty well. We are proud to start in the 5ths pot and make a run for the front.” Hathaway said after qualifying.
Hathaway put down some awesome lap times as he found his rhythm and by lap 84 Hathaway was running 2nd. A pit stop on lap 101 gave Hathaway left side tires and 30 laps later right side tires. With fresh tires Hathaway was 10th in the running order turning up the heat and working his way back up to the 7th spot. Hathaway left the pressure on as the laps wound down and made great passes on the 9, 4 and 27 cars. With 25 laps to go Hathaway had an awesome restart and put his racing machine inside the top 5, lining himself up for a strong 4th place finish.
With the fourth place finish Hathaway and his #3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge now sit 5th in the overall NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Championship.
“This is a tricky little racetrack and we had a good night. We qualified well and that certainly helped us to stay our front and keep precious track position. We had an air gun jam during one of the pit stops and the crew did a great job getting me back out onto the track. We are excited to bring our Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge home inside the top 5.” Said Hathaway after NASCAR post-race technical inspection.
