ST-EUSTACHE, QC July 27, 2014–After a pair of strong showings in Western Canada, Jason Hathaway struggled in his NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 return to Autodrome St-Eustache. A strong recovery from a tough qualifying effort was halted after a cut tire late in the race relegated the veteran to an 11th place finish.
“I think today was as hard as we’ve had to work with this car all season”, offered a disappointed Hathaway post-race. “We didn’t have the qualifying results we were hoping for, but my guys rolled up their sleeves and got busy, and we ended up battling back through the first half of the race.”
The veteran ran within the top-10 for the bulk of the National 250, working his way as high as 2nd, before suffering a flat right rear tire shortly before the halfway mark.
“We’ve always had great cars at St-Eustache, and no luck to seal the deal”, explained the driver of the No. 3 Princess Auto/Rockstar Energy Drink Chevrolet. “Unfortunately, that’s exactly the way our night went. I can’t explain how proud I am of this team, they worked hard to bring this car up to speed today. We will regroup and focus on Trois Rivieres.”
Hathaway would lose a pair of laps on a green flag pit stop to change the tire, eventually earning a lap back before running out of time at the checkered flag.
Jason Hathaway will return to action with the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 on August 10th at the Circuit de Trois-Rivieres.
