Top 10 for Hathaway at Chaudière
Chaudière, Quebec, June 24, 2016– Hathaway and his #3 Raybestos/HGC Chevrolet took to the tight oval of Autodrome Chaudière as the defending two-time race winner. The team were working towards a win when an ill-handling race car prevented a “threepeat” for the T3R/EHR team.
Hathaway practised well and when the green flag flew on the tight 16 car field it was game on. By lap 10 Hathaway had made his way up to the 6th spot from his 13th starting position in the field. On Lap 85 Hathaway suffered some minor body damage in an incident with another car, but that didn’t set Hathaway back a beat.
At the half way break, the team gave Hathaway two new right side tires, filled him full of fuel, and sent him back out onto the track. Hathaway once again showed his talent and determination and worked his way up into the 4th spot with his eye on the lead position.
As the final laps of the long 300 lap event closed out, the handling on Hathaway’s car tightened up and was a handful to hang on to. He finished 7th on the night and gathered some important points in the Driver Points category.
“We had a great car earlier in the race, but as the track cooled the car got incredibly tight. With the set-up of this track and pit road, it is tough to come in for an adjustment and not go down a lap. It was a great show though for all of the fans. They love NASCAR racing here in Québec and it was an awesome crowd tonight,” said Hathaway as the team loaded their car for the drive back to Ontario.
The Team will head just north of Montreal, Quebec July 3 for the 2nd road course race of the year at Circuit ICAR.
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.
