Toronto, Ontario – July 13, 2019- The second road course of the 2019 season was a solid confidence builder for Hathaway and his team this weekend at the prestigious Honda Indy on Saturday.

Practice and qualifying were tough for Hathaway as he relearned the track he hadn’t seen for 3 years. The laps during those 2 sessions were key to Hathaway adjustments and helped to sort out the road course and it’s technical features again.

Hathaway qualified 14 th on the starting grid and set his focus on taking his #3 Kubota Chevrolet towards the front. Extreme weather moved into the Exhibition Place area Saturday afternoon before the race and delayed the start of the event 2 hours.

When the race did get underway Hathaway started to make their way through the pack on the tight 2.874 km temporary street course. By the half way point Hathaway was up to 11 th on a track is tight and hard to pass on.

A late race restart gave Hathaway some great passing opportunities and he finished the day up 8 th in the finishing order.

“I’m pretty happy with how we finished up today. I haven’t been here in in a few years and brought a new car from year’s past. Our crew did a great job making adjustments in practice qualifying and for the race. We ran our fastest lap of the weekend on lap 23 of the race,“ said Hathaway with a coy smile on his face after the race.

The Team will head west at the end of July for the Series annual trek west to Wyant Group Speedway in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan July 24 th and Edmonton International Raceway near Edmonton, Alberta July 27th.
