@NASCAR • @AutChaudiere • @JasonHathaway3 • VALLEE-JONCTION, QC June 13, 2015- After qualifying deep in a super competitive field, Jason Hathaway wheeled his #3 Fast Eddie/Brake-Works Chevrolet to victory on Saturday night at the Budweiser 300 at Autodrome Chaudiere.
Hathaway’s return to Autodrome Chaudière to defend his 2014 win there did not initially go as well as the team wanted. A tough practice and qualifying session put the #3 Fast Eddie Racewear/Brake-Works Chevrolet deep in the field.
“We didn’t have the same feel in the car today as we did coming here last year. We will have to work on the car as the race goes on and see if we can work our way to the front.” Said Hathaway during the busy autograph session.
Hathaway did a great job working his way up from his 13th starting spot to seventh as the half way break on lap 154. Crew Chief Craig Master and Car Chief Graham Annis made some great adjustments on the car and Hathaway used the second half of the race to position himself within striking distance of the top running spot. With some great restarts, Hathaway earned the lead of the quick paced race on lap 268 and didn’t look back. He brought home his first win of the 2015 season and his sixth NASCAR Canadian Tire Series win.
“This is pretty cool bringing home this win tonight.” Said Hathaway in Victory Lane. “This race marked my 100th NASCAR start, which is pretty amazing and on top of that it is my daughter Hannah’s ninth birthday today. She couldn’t be here tonight, but she will love to hear that we won on her birthday! Pretty cool series of events today.”
“The boys did a great job calling the adjustments we needed and the second half of the race we were in a great rhythm.” Continued Hathaway. ” I enjoyed running Scott for the lead. The crowd here was great and we were happy to be back here this year!”
Hathaway and Gary Klutt each have 84 points after the first two races and are tied for first place in the 2015 NCTS points contest.
The Budweiser 300 will air on TSN this coming Saturday June 20 at 12 pm EST as well as RDS2 Friday July 3 at 10 pm.
Jason Hathaway will be back in competition with the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series at the inaugural race at Sunset Speedway June 20 for the Leland Johnsonville 300.
