PODIUM SLIPS AWAY FROM SNAP-ON TOOLS/ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK DODGE AT RIVERSIDE
September 19, 2010, Antigonish, Nova Scotia- Jason Hathaway, EHR/T3R and the #3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge once again showed that they are a team to be reckoned with this past weekend on the 1/3 high banked oval of Riverside Speedway, outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Practice went well for the team on Saturday afternoon posting a 3rd place fastest car on the speed charts. Qualifying later that afternoon placed Hathaway 9th in the starting order for the 300 lap quick paced race.
Hathaway was happy with his car before the start of the race. “This is a pretty quick track and we are looking forward to a good run this afternoon. The car is fast and handling really well.”
It didn’t take long for Hathaway to show what the car was capable of when the race got underway. Just before the 100 lap mark, the #3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge was lined up in the 6th spot. The crew brought his racing machine in for fuel and tires on lap 82. The crew did a great job and sent Hathaway back out on the track in the 7th spot.
New tires and a great handing race car saw Hathaway through long green flag runs. On lap 246 Hathaway’s great driving and patience all came together when he pulled into the third spot in the running order. The top 3 placed drivers pulled away as a group and set their own pace. Hathaway vied for 2nd place for 14 laps before settling into 3rd . With only 10 laps to go Hathaway started to slip back in the running order, finishing 5th.
“Our car was once again pretty awesome. The crew did a great job in the pits today and we thought we had a car for the podium again this weekend. It was great to run with Steckley and Thompson, but that podium finish slipped away from us. We have been running up front and we hope to finish the season off next week up there as well.” Said a happy Hathaway after the race.
The Team will finish up the 2010 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series schedule this weekend September 25th when they take their # 3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge to the .375 mile track of Kawartha Speedway near Bowmanville, Ontario.
