Millgrove, ON- August 29, 2019 —  With a strong showing at Sunset Speedway a few weeks ago, where he dominated the weekend, Hathaway and his #3 Kubota Chevrolet were focused on continuing their on-track success at Flamboro Speedway Saturday for the 3rd and 4th races of the 2020 NASCAR Pinty’s Series FanCave Challenge on Saturday.

The EHR team came off the trailer strong in practice and pulled a pole position starting spot in the random draw for the Pinty’s 125 later in the afternoon.

In the race, Hathaway was once again the class of the field leading every lap and posted some pretty wicked lap times. He went flag to flag in the 125-lap event and brought home his second win of the 2020 NPS season.

“We are pretty happy with our car today. Our #3 Kubota Chevrolet handled awesome and we able to pull away from the field. This is a great way to kick off the day of racing here at Flamboro and to celebrate my daughter Macy’s birthday as well,” said Hathaway in victory lane.

The Team also raced in the PartyCasino 125 later Saturday afternoon starting 4th in the lineup. Hathaway had an excellent start and wheeled his way into 3rd with the drop of the green flag. He settled into 3rd and by lap 67 had taken over 2nd place in the running order. A long green-flag run ensued and despite his best efforts, Hathaway finished 2nd in the race.

Hathaway was pleased with the success of the team’s weekend. “I am super proud of the entire team and all of the hard work and shop prep that has gone into our EHR equipment this season. We really wanted to take home another win here tonight, but we will take the 2nd place and get ready for Jukasa in a few weeks.”

After the weekend’s results, Hathaway is leading the points in the FanCave Challenge.

The Pinty’s 125 will air on TSN on Sunday, September 6th at 430 pm EST and the PartyCasino 125 will air on TSN on Saturday, September 12 at noon. They will also be aired on RDS & RDS2 and MAVTV in the US.

The NASCAR Pinty’s Series will head to Jukasa Motor Speedway in Hagersville, Ontario on September 12th for the season finale twin 125 lap events.
