MIRABEL, QC- July 7, 2014 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series veteran Jason Hathaway continued his strong start to the 2014 season, earning a hard-fought top-10 finish at the oft-challenging Circuit ICAR in Mirabel, Quebec.
The #3 Rockstar Energy Drink/HGC Chevrolet qualified in the 10th position, and remained in contention within the top-10 throughout the entirety of the Jiffy Lube 100, en route to a 9th place finish.
“ICAR has been the most difficult track on the schedule for us”, admitted Hathaway post-race. “We’ve been working hard on our road-course program, and I really feel as though it’s beginning to pay off. This track has been hard on us in the past, between on-track incidents and mechanical problems. So, we’ll definitely take a top-10.”
The successful outing leaves Hathaway 4th in series points – just 5 markers outside of 3rd – as the tour readies for its annual Western swing.
“There’s something about the West coast that’s brought out the best in this team, lately”, smiled Hathaway when asked about the tour’s upcoming 2 events.
“I absolutely love Auto Clearing Motor Speedway, and I can’t wait to hit the new asphalt at Edmonton International Raceway. These are two events that I’ve had circled on my calendar for a while now. They should give us a fantastic opportunity to climb into the top-3 in points”
Jason Hathaway and the Ed Hakonson Racing team will return to action this Friday, July 11th at Edmonton International Raceway for the ‘Alberta Has Energy 300’.
T3R/ EHR is proud to be partnered with Rockstar Energy Drink, The Harman Group, Williamson’s GM & Dodge, Praxair, Mobil 1, Fast Eddie Racewear, Barn Door Brewing Company and Choko Motorsports.
