STOUFFVILLE, ON- September 18, 2014– After a late-race, highlight-reel battle at Barrie Speedway paved the way for Jason Hathaway’s second victory of the 2014 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 season, the fan favourite is ready to close out his season on a high note setting his sights on a strong podium finish at Kawartha Speedway’s Pinty’s 250 on Saturday, September 20th.
“Barrie was exactly the kind of race we needed”, smiles Hathaway as he reflects. “We always seem to run well there. Now that we have that win to build on, all of our guys are motivated and energized to take down two in a row this weekend.”
Hathaway has posted 4 top-10s in 6 oval starts this season, and hopes to continue that trend at Kawartha.
“Our oval program is so strong, my team always has me in equipment that’s capable of getting to the front”, explains the veteran. “We just need to pick our spots, utilize the right strategy on pit road and have enough car left to be there when it counts.”
Heading into the event, Hathaway makes it clear what his Ed Hakonson Racing team is looking for at Kawartha.
“At this point in the season, all that matters to us is a trip to victory lane. We’re going to Kawartha looking for our third win of the season, and we’re not going to let a little bit of hard work stand in the way of making that happen.”
The Pinty’s 250 is scheduled for Kawartha Speedway on Saturday, September 20th. Details, including gate times and ticket prices, can be found at www.KawarthaSpeedway.com.
