Top 10 for Hathaway at CTMP
Stouffville, Ontario- May 22, 2017- After a very busy qualifying day for Jason Hathaway and his Team, Hathaway showed his road course skills scoring a top 10 finish in a rain soaked event at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park.
Blazing new Kubota colours on the Team’s hauler, car and team apparel the Team stood out trackside. The Team’s practice on Saturday was cut short when Hathaway didn’t like the sound of the motor under the hood of his race machine.
The Team elected to change the motor on their #3 Kubota Chevrolet. With great Team work Hathaway was ready in time for qualifying later that afternoon. He laid down some impressive laps and posted a 9th place starting spot for the 51-lap race on Sunday afternoon.
Wet weather loomed over the 2.459-mile road course and by the time that the green flag was ready to fly a light rain started to come down creating standing water on the track. Crew Chief Craig Masters brought Hathaway down pit road with the rest of the field and geared up his race car with rain tires.
By just after the half way point Hathaway had worked his way up to 3rd in the running order. As the race played out, the rain stopped, the track dried, and the Team put their slick tires back on the car and sent Hathaway back to work.
With 15 laps to go the skies opened back up soaking the track with rain. With the change in conditions, the call was for rain tires once again.
Several caution laps filled the last laps of the race and the 25-car field was under a full course caution and the race went into overtime.
Under green the significant rain fall slowed the race pace and limited the driver’s ability to really race each other. Hathaway finished 8th.
Jason Hathaway will be back in action this coming weekend in the APC Late Model Series season opener at Sunset Speedway near Barrie, Ontario.
