TOP 5 FOR HATHAWAY AT MONTREAL ON LIVE TELEVISION
August 29, 2010, Montreal, Quebec,- Jason Hathaway, EHR/T3R and the #3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge were joined the on the race schedule by NASCAR Nationwide Series this weekend at the famous Circuit Gilles Villeneuve for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series NAPA Autopro 100.
The start of the weekend was tough for the Team as the #3 Snap-on Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Dodge struggled to get a clean lap posted during practice due to caution flags on the track. During qualifying Hathaway posted a 16th place qualifying result, again struggling to get a clean lap due to on track accidents that shortened the qualifying session.
Starting 16th, the main focus of the Team was to get working through the pack and toward the front in the quick 23 lap race. Hathaway got his drive toward the front going early making the most of his ability to get through corner 1 and 2 well. Hathaway made most of his moves through those 2 corners as well as corner 3 and by lap 17 was 7th in the running order. With 5 laps to go Hathaway made his way through a tangle between 2 cars and slid into 5th place in the running order. The race finished under green, white, checker flag conditions and Hathaway posted a 5th place finish.
Hathaway was pleased with the teams’ best road course finish of the 2010 season. “I am pretty proud of our finish today. We finished the last of the road courses of the year on a high note and we have had steady improvement throughout the season. Road courses are hard on brakes and our Vortex Brake Pads kept us in the game for sure. The live television today was excellent and the stands were packed, I hope the fans really enjoyed the race. ”
The Team will have one weekend off before finishing up the 2010 season with 3 oval track races in a row. On September 11th the Team will race under the lights at Barrie Speedway, followed by Riverside Speedway in Antigonish, Nova Scotia September 18th with the season finale at Kawartha Speedway near Peterborough, Ontario on September 25th.
