   Hagersville, Ontario – June 2, 2019- Hathaway’s return to oval track racing this weekend did not go as the driver and Team had planned.

Hathaway dominated the top of the speed charts on Saturday afternoon during practice, but the car was wicked loose during qualifying and Hathaway qualified 13th.

The Team regrouped Saturday night after the APC 200 was delayed until Sunday at 1:30 pm due to weather.

Sunday afternoon Hathaway took the green flag and made quick moves to the front of the running order making his way up to 8th before pitting for fuel for his #3 Kubota Chevrolet on lap 26.

Hathaway made his way back up to 2nd place by lap 100, but it was short lived when he detected an audible miss in his race machine.

The team diagnosed an electrical issue and the Team changed the battery under green going down 7 laps to the leaders.

The repair worked and Hathaway ran some great laps, keeping pace with the leaders and finished 14th in the finishing order.

“We had pretty tough weekend. The car practiced really well,” said Hathaway. “But the race was frustrating. Our boys did a good job diagnosing the issue and got it fixed. We will be back looking for a top performance at Chaudière at the end of the month.”

The next event for Hathaway and his Team will be June 29th at Autodrome Chaudière near Quebec City.
