Hathaway is excited to hone his skills and expand his driving experience. “Any time we get the opportunity to try a different kind of racing it’s great. I like to build on my driving resume, trying different styles of cars and tracks. I am really looking forward to taking the helm of the #37 next weekend. We are proud to have Choko and King Beer on the car as well as Great Lakes Concrete and Fast Eddie Racewear.”
