SASKATOON, SK- Jason Hathaway capped off a successful western swing with the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 on July 16th, tallying a 2nd place finish in the Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway.
The runner-up performance comes hot on the heels of a third place finish at Edmonton International Raceway on July 11th, and serves to inject Hathaway’s No. 3 Pro.Point Tools/Rockstar Energy Drink Chevrolet into the championship conversation.
“This was a great points night for us, my Ed Hakonson Racing team gave me a phenomenal car”, smiled Hathaway in post-race technical inspection.
“I needed one more lap”, continued Hathaway, “LP [Dumoulin] ran a great race, hats off to him. We were getting better with each passing lap, and had LP right on our nose as we crossed the stripe for the checkered flag.”
The event marked Hathaway’s 7th podium in his last 9 oval starts, further entrenching himself as one of the Series’ top short track performers.
“Our oval program is something we’re incredibly proud of. Our team goes above and beyond to give me the best possible equipment each and every week. We have St. Eustache coming up next, and we’d love nothing more than to keep the streak going and park this Chevrolet in victory lane.”
The Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 also marked Hathaway’s debut with marketing partner Pro.Point Tools, a fact that Hathaway hinted may have given him some added motivation.
“We wanted to show the awesome folks from Pro.Point what a NASCAR event is all about. This whole team appreciates their support, and bringing home a podium finish was the best way I could think of to show our thanks.”
Pro.Point will return as Hathaway’s sponsor at Autodrome St. Eustache, Circuit de Trois-Rivieres and Canadian Tire Motorsport Park later this season.
Jason’s next event will be the National 250 at Autodrome St. Eustache on July 26th, marking Round 6 of the 2014 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 schedule.
