STOUFFVILLE, ON- As the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series prepares for its debut at Vallee-Jonction, Quebec’s Autodrome Chaudiere, teams across Canada are formulating their best strategy on how to attack the unfamiliar quarter-mile.
For short track ace, Jason Hathaway, not knowing is part of the experience. “I’m excited to be going to [Autodrome] Chaudiere”, explained the personable veteran. “There are few things better in this sport than the feeling of walking into a speedway you’ve never seen before”
“Every team in that pit area is going to have to be on their A-Game”, Hathaway continued, “because our practice sessions are almost going to be a race within a race, with everyone trying to figure out the quick way around before the team in the next pit stall does”
A former Late Model standout, Hathaway is no stranger to arriving in unfamiliar territory with little experience or notes to act as a guide. “When you’re racing the weekly Late Model circuit, you have the chance to visit virtually every speedway in your region”, said Hathaway, “it puts a lot of focus on the relationship between driver and crew. Because, you’re going to need them to help you find the setup that will give you a fighting chance on race day”
“I have some of the best guys in the sport”, continued Hathaway, “and they know I’m going to be leaning on them as much as ever before on June 14th. This is a new puzzle, and I can’t wait to figure it out”
All 3 of Hathaway’s NASCAR Canadian Tire Series victories have come on ovals, with an additional 16 top-5s in his 88-race career.
“Oval racing is definitely where I feel most comfortable”, said Hathaway, “I think we’ll have an excellent program ready for Chaudiere, and I can’t wait to scratch another short track off my bucket list”
The Budweiser 300 is scheduled for June 14th at Autodrome Chaudiere. Gate times and ticket prices can be found at www.AutodromeChaudiere.ca.
