Trois Rivières, QC- August 12, 2019- The annual trek to the 2.46 km road course for the Grand Prix de Trois Rivieres showed a good result for Hathaway as he and his #3 Kubota Chevrolet posted a top 10 yesterday.

The GP3R celebrated it’s 50th Anniversary with the NASCAR Pinty’s Series being the highlight of the weekend. Unfortunately, the road to get to the starting grid was wet and rainy all weekend, washing out practice and qualifying on Saturday afternoon and setting the starting grid by points.

The teams were permitted a 30-minute warm up on Sunday morning before taking the green flag on Sunday afternoon.

Hathaway started 8th and soon found his rhythm through the tight road course. By the half way point Hathaway was 4th in the running order. He ran between 3rd and 4th for most of the last part of the race and he and his fellow competitors gave the fans a great show as they battled hard for each position.

As the race laps wore down Hathaway held his own and brought his race machine home just outside the top 5 in 6th place.

“We had a solid day today and we are proud to take home the 6th place. Thanks to Premier for getting us here this weekend and for all of the support of our sponsors that make this all possible for us.” Said Hathaway.

The Team will head to one of their favourite places, the Maritimes, this week for the Bumper to Bumper 300 at Riverside Speedway in Antigonish, NS on Saturday August 17.
