STOUFFVILLE, ON- August 15, 2014 -Fresh off of a top-10 performance in road course action on the streets of Trois-Rivieres, Jason Hathaway and the Ed Hakonson Racing team will now head east, for August 16th’s Wilson Equipment 300 at Riverside International Raceway in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.
Hathaway will enter the 300-lap event as the defending race winner, and will look to return to victory lane for his second victory of the 2014 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 season.
“You’re always able to walk into the paddock with your head held a little higher when you’re the defending winner”, smiles Hathaway.
“We’re going to try and implement the same strategy we did last time we ran here”, continues Hathaway. “Equipment preservation will be key. If we take care of our car, our car will take care of us”
The veteran has 5 top-10s in 7 career starts at the high banked short track, and hopes a strong run on August 16th will help vault his No. 3 Rockstar Energy Drink/HGC Chevrolet into the top-3 in NCATS championship points.
“The season’s closing in and everyone on this team is looking to finish strong”, explains Hathaway. “Riverside is a speedway that I feel very comfortable at, and we have some pretty high expectations going into Saturday’s race. We’re only 12 points out of the top-3 in the standings, and if we run as well as I know we can, we should have the opportunity to make up quite a bit of ground”
