Hathaway Podiums at Motoplex
July 31, 2010-Vernon, BC– Jason Hathaway, EHR/T3R and the #3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge made their second stop on the three stop western swing tour at Motoplex, just outside of Vernon, British Columbia this weekend. After a so-so finish at this track last season the Team was pumped to improve their finish and keep the momentum going.
The #3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge showed well in practice and was posted fourth fastest on the speed chart after the one hour session. Hathaway was the first car on track to qualify later Saturday afternoon, qualifying his race machine outside row 4, in the 8th starting spot. “The car ran well in practice but, this is a long race tonight and it will be a test right up to the very end of the race for sure.” Hathaway predicted before sliding into his race car for the main 300 lap event.
Hathaway got into his rhythm early with his sights on the front pack of drivers. The crew brought Hathaway in for fuel and tires on lap 105 to fix a tight handling race car. He went a lap down, but raced hard and received the “Lucky Dog Award” placing him back on the lead lap.
As the set up and tire adjustments worked into the car after another stop after hitting the corner 2 wall , Hathaway battled back again driving around the leaders to earn his lap back by running hard and driving his way around the race leaders. As pit stops cycled through just before the lap 200 mark, Hathaway inherited the first place and convincingly led the race for 30 or more laps. A great battle to the end with fellow competitor DJ Kennington awarded EHR/Team 3 Red with a 2nd place finish and an exciting race to the very end.
“This is a great finish for us. DJ and I raced hard and we have been friends since we were kids so there is no one more I’d like to race with than him. We had some bad tire luck and got off our pit stop sequence, but Tyler made some great calls and we battled back lap after lap. We had a great time tonight and I’m proud of our Team.” summarized Hathaway as he took the podium and enjoyed the accolades of a podium finish.
The Team will now take their #3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge to the last event of the western swing schedule at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan August 4, 2010.
