Hathaway Just Misses Podium at Delaware
June 6, 2010- Delaware, Ontario – Jason Hathaway, EHR/T3R and the #3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink arrived at Delaware Speedway near London, Ontario for the Keystone Light 200, Hathaway’s home track during his early racing years, for the first of the thirteen races on the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series schedule.
With numerous laps at Delaware Speedway, Hathaway was on his game as the team took to the track for practice and after the hour session was 4th on the speed charts. Qualifying went well and positioned the #3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar energy Drink Dodge for a great race starting 8th on the grid of 23 cars.
The action started early trackside and the half way point of the 200 lap race Hathaway had his racing machine in the 4th stop. Crew Chief Tyler Case brought Hathaway down pit road on lap 110 for right side tires to take him the rest of the distance and set Hathaway loose to work his way back up through the field to the front of the pack again.
With 25 laps to go, Hathaway was sitting in the 6th position, working his way up from 11th after the pit stop. Hathaway turned up the heat and made some exciting passes to put him in line for the Team’s first podium finish of the 2010 season. On the last lap, going into corner 3 of the 1/2 -mile race track, Hathaway was hit by another car, sending him through the grass in corner 3 & 4, loosing track position and was relegated to 10th in the finishing order.
“I have a ton of laps here at this track and we were looking forward to a great finish tonight. Our car was strong and we were comfortable running in the front pack all night. We were one turn away from posting our first podium of the season. Our crew worked well and we put on a great race for the fans.” said Hathaway after climbing out of his race car in the post race rain that fell.
Round two for EHR/T3R will be at the road course of Mosport International Speedway for the Vortex Brake Pads 200, June 12 & 13, 2010.
