Western Swing Off To Great Start For Hathaway

July 25, 2010 – Edmonton, Alberta – Jason Hathaway, EHR/T3R and the #3 Snap-on Tools/Vortex Brake Pads Dodge made the long trip to the “City of Champions”, Edmonton Alberta, for the first of 3 western events on the 2010 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series schedule.  The Team hoped to redeem themselves after a disappointing run at the Toronto Honda Indy last weekend.

Returning to the track was exciting for Hathaway as the weekends’ events’ got underway.  “I like this track and the fans are great here in Edmonton.”  The first and second practice sessions, taking place on Friday and Saturday, showed well for the Hathaway and his race machine. Qualifying on Saturday afternoon placed Hathaway in the 10TH starting spot for the 32 lap race.

Hathaway ran a consistent race working each lap to find the ideal lien to run as the track surface changed through our race. Hathaway had a great on track battle with the #42 car as their diced back and forth for the 6th spot in the last 10 laps of the race.  It was Hathaway that prevailed in the end bringing his #3 Snap-on Tools/Vortex Brake Pads Dodge home in one piece and in the 6th finishing position.

“It is pretty frustrating when a non regular competitor wants to race to you into a corner and doesn’t know better than to lift.  I had fun racing him all day long, but the last lap of the race was pretty crazy. I had to back out of the corner to make sure the guy didn’t take me out.  In the end NASCAR saw the incident and we came out on top.  The crew worked great this weekend and our road course program got a huge boost.  We will take this and build some momentum going to the next race in British Columbia.

The Team will then take their #3 Snap-on Tools/Vortex Brake Pads Dodge to the oval  at Motorplex in Vernon, British Columbia  July 31,2010  and then onto Auto Clearing Motorspeedway in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan August 4, 2010.
