Rough Start to Western Swing for Hathaway

Wetaskwin, Alberta- July 23, 2016- The first stop on the annual western swing at Edmonton International Speedway for Jason Hathaway and his NASCAR Pinty’s Series #3 Raybestos/Fast Eddie Chevrolet was a tough one for the Team.

The 2015 NASCAR Canada Most Popular Driver set to work as soon as the green flag flew and was making steady progress towards the front when he was slammed by another car and sent into the outside wall. The hard hit ended Hathaway’s night at lap 103. Ending the race early came as a disappointment to Team 3 Red’s driver. “The car was decent and we had a lot of racing to do tonight,” he explained. “I was looking forward to giving our season a good boost with a solid finish tonight. It’s too bad, the guys work hard and we appreciate all the support we get from our sponsors, families, and fans that follow up each and every week.”

Shaking off their disappointment, the team will take their race machine to Wyant Group Raceway near Saskatoon, Saskatchewan for the (always sold out) mid-week event on Wednesday, July 27th.

T3R/EHR is also proud to be partnered with sponsors Raybestos, Fast Eddie Racewear, The Harman Group, DSI, Choko Motorsports, and BIO 2000 Pressure Wash.
