Stouffville, Ontario- September 10, 2019- Jason Hathaway and his team had a very special few days that culminated at Autodrome St. Eustache, near Laval, Quebec on Sunday afternoon.
The weekend kicked off with the arrival of Jay and Jamie’s son Maxson Aubrey Hathaway early Friday morning. He weighed in at 8 lbs 12 oz and 21 ¾” long. Jay was able to get Jamie and baby home and settled in before heading Friday night for the Lucas Oil 250 on Saturday evening. As he left his young son that night, he promised him that he was planning on bringing home a trophy to decorate his new room with and he made good on that promise for little Maxson.
The weekend also marked an important event for the historic Autodrome Eustache as the NASCAR Pinty’s Series race taking place would be the last race event that the facility would see before it shut down permanently.
When race day arrived on Saturday the Pinty’s race weekend was once again interrupted by rain showers and the teams were able to get on track for practice only early Saturday afternoon.
Hathaway in his #3 Kubota Chevrolet practiced well and secured a 4th place on the starting grid for the 250-lap main event post-posted until Sunday afternoon due to weather.
When the green flag dropped on the field Sunday Hathaway ran in the top 3 all day and finally took the lead on the restart on lap 170.
The rest of the 250-lap race Hathaway put a gap between himself and the rest of the field and focused on taking his race machine to the end.
Hathaway couldn’t believe the events that his family and team were able to experience. “We couldn’t have scripted this any better I tell ya. I told my new baby boy that I was bringing home a trophy for him and we have it along with his first checkered flag. That’s pretty cool. The fans stuck with us in the stands this weekend and we are so happy that our special guests from Kubota were able to be here as well. Its an honour to record the last win at this track with all that it has accomplished. This has been an awesome weekend and we are so thankful.” Said Hathaway after he joined his team in Victory Lane.
The next event will be south of the border at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon New Hampshire September 21st . This will mark the second time that the NASCAR Pinty’s Series has travelled across the Canada/US border to showcase the amazing talent that we have here in the Series.
