Hathaway Records 2nd Top 10
June 13, 2010- Bowmanville, Ontario– Jason Hathaway, EHR/T3R and the #3 Snap-on Tools/Vortex Brake Pads Dodge were met by cloudy skies and extensive showers at Mosport International Raceway this weekend for the Vortex Brake Pads 200.
With questionable weather surrounding the race track, practice did not post the speeds and times that the team expected to see. Qualifying later that afternoon was postponed due to the heavy rains.
The Team was on track Sunday morning and Hathaway qualified his #3 Snap-on Tools/Vortex Brake Pads Dodge 13th in a field of 24 cars.
The 51 lap race got underway under sunny skies and Hathaway started setting his rhythm getting around the 2.49 mile track. Crew Chief Tyler Case brought the car in on lap 16 to top off the car’s fuel. Two laps later, the Team caught a break when a full course yellow flag came out and the Team’s pit crew were able to fly into action performing a fabulous 4 tire change. The Crew’s quick work helped Hathaway pick up 10 positions in the pits, going back out onto the track 7th in the running order.
As the race drew close to the end, Hathaway held off a number of cars, but with little time to make adjustments throughout the race, the handling of the car went away. When the checkered flag flew on the field Hathaway crossed the line in the 10th position having fought back from 14th in the few laps of the race.
“We missed the set up a little this weekend with all of the unstable weather and not being too sure what today’s weather was going to bring. The crew did a great job on the 4 tire stop and the spots we picked up in the pits were awesome. I’d also like to thank our great Team sponsor Vortex Brakes for sponsoring the race this weekend and supporting the Series. We are proud to carry their colours and represent them each and every event. “ Said Hathaway after the race.
Round three for EHR/T3R will be back on the familiar tight track at St Eustache, Quebec Saturday night under the lights on July 3,2010.
