J. Wally Nesbitt Special to The Standard
After a two year sabbatical, Jason Hathaway will return to the NASCAR Pinty’s Series on a full time basis for 2019.
Aboard the familiar No. 3 Ed Hakonson Racing/ Team 3 Red Chevrolet Camaro, this year Hathaway will enjoy support and sponsorship with Kubota Canada, Fast Eddie Racewear and Choko Authentics as he prepares for the 13 race NPS season.
“The last couple of years Kubota has been working with us, but they wanted to come on board this year as a primary (sponsor),” explained Hathaway. “They approached me about coming back as the driver, and the team added their support as well. I think the guys just wanted to shut me up!”
Hathaway, who has nine career victories in Canada’s only professional stock car racing series, comes back to the NASCAR Pinty’s Series with a fresh point of view.
“Until 2017, I had only seen the races from the driver’s seat, and I never saw the full picture. I’ve learned a lot from watching from the outside, not only watching our team, but watching other teams as well. I think that gives us an advantage going into this year.”
Hathaway and the Stouffville-based E.H.R. team will begin their 2019 campaign at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park over the Victoria Day Speedfest weekend, returning to the Bowmanville-area facility in late August.
