Not Quite The Finish Hathaway Wanted At Trois-Rivieres
August 15, 2010-Trois-Rivieres, Quebec,- Jason Hathaway, EHR/T3R and the #3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge had a solid finish at the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres 1.5 mile road course this weekend, but the finish they brought home was not the one they knew they were capable of.
The #3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge posted a good practice result and recorded 12th fastest practice times. The Team made some more adjustments for qualifying and in the qualifying session Hathaway put down a 5th place qualifying effort. “We made a few changes after practice to help the car and set it up for qualifying and the race tomorrow. It definitely helped the car and I think we have a great chance tomorrow.” Said Hathaway after qualifying.
Starting 5th, Hathaway got his drive toward the front going early and made his way up the running order to 3rd, battling with some of the great road course competitors in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series. A miss queue just before the half way point, in a braking zone, caused Hathaway to spin trying to avoid another car and he fell back to the 12th spot. With limited laps left to claw his way back up towards the front, coupled with a number of caution periods on the track, limited Hathaway’s time to get his car to where he wanted it in the running order. Hathaway put in an amazing drive none the less and brought his #3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge home in the 8th spot.
Hathaway knew they had a better finish in the car and him than what the finishing order showed. “We had a great run going and would have been in the top 5 if we didn’t have to avoid the situation in the corner where we spun. The car war fast and it handled well. Our road course program has been doing well this season and I am looking forward to Montreal in a few weeks to see what we can do there.”
The Team will return to home soil this coming weekend at the Dickies 200 presented by Vortex Brake Pads at the oval at the Mosport International Speedway on Saturday night , August 21, 2010., 2010.
