HATHAWAY HOLDS ON FOR TOP 10 FINISH AT RIVERSIDE
ANTIGONISH, NOVA SCOTIA- AUGUST 17, 2015– Jason Hathaway and his crew had high hopes for their run this past weekend at Riverside Speedway after dominating the same race last year.
Hathaway practiced well and felt comfortable with his #3 Fast Eddie Racewear/Choko Motorsports Chevrolet as they headed into qualifying. Hathaway qualified 4th in the super tight grid for the Wounded Warriors Canada 300.
The high speed banks of Riverside lead to some great racing and Hathaway made quick work of his competitors and took the lead on lap 135. Unfortunately Hathaway’s lead didn’t last after he took tires. The new right side tires the crew put on the car affected the handling of the car and Hathaway struggled to stay up front with the long green flag run that ensued for the remainder of the 300 lap event. Hathaway held on and wheeled his way to a 6th place finish.
“This wasn’t the finish that we wanted this weekend. The car was good at the start, but after we put on our right side tires the car didn’t respond as well. We didn’t get any cautions so we weren’t able to adjust on it like we wanted to.” Said Hathaway after the race.
The Wounded Warriors of Canada 300 will air on TSN on Saturday Aug. 22nd at 6 p.m., and on RDS2 on Sept. 4th at 7:30pm.
T3R/EHR is proud to be partnered with Fast Eddie Racewear, The Harman Group, Praxair and Choko Motorsports.
