Hathaway Set to Return to Full Time NPS Competition in 2019

   Stouffville, Ontario- March 7, 2019- After a 2-year hiatus Jason Hathaway will return to full time competition in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series in 2019.

Hathaway took some time off from full time NASCAR competition to spend time with his family after completing the 2016 season.  During that time EHR built a brand new Pro Late Model to have some fun with in 2017; winning the inaugural Canadian Short Track Nationals at Jukasa Motor Speedway and sitting on the Pole at the IWK 250 at Riverside Speedway. In 2018 they fielded a full time NPS program as well as hitting the big Pro Late Model shows in Ontario and Nova Scotia.

“I still have the competitiveness burning inside of me to win races in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series. I know I can get the job done in the seat and with my team. We are a close group of hard-working guys and we all decided it was time for us to run full time together again.” Said Hathaway from the Team’s Stouffville, Ontario based shop.

To support the Team’s efforts for 2019, EHR and Kubota Canada are pleased to announce that Kubota will be the primary sponsor on the #3 Kubota Chevrolet Camaro for the NASCAR Pinty’s Series.

“Kubota Canada is absolutely thrilled to have Jason back in the #3 Kubota Chevrolet for the 2019 season”, said Rob Allison, Director, Brand for Kubota Canada Ltd. “Jason’s credentials speak for themselves and along with the great team he has supporting him, I’m confident he’ll be contending for the #1 position during each and every race”.

Team owner Ed Hakonson said,“We are excited to have Jason back behind the wheel for the 2019 season. He really showed his talent over the years winning races and always representing our brands well. We are proud to be able to field a full time NASCAR Pinty’s Series team again this season and are looking forward to flying the Kubota colours.”
