    The Windride Transportation Sport Stocks will have a special guest driver this Saturday.

    Jason Hathaway, driver of the No. 3 Snap-On Tools/Rockstar/Vortex Brakes Dodge in the Canadian Tire NASCAR Series, will join the Sport Stocks boys for the night’s racing action.

    Hathaway will have his No. 3 car on display on the grandstand side and fans will have the chance to meet the Canadian Tire NASCAR driver before the racing action gets underway.

    He will have plenty of souvenirs from his sponsors and photocards to give to fans in the pre-race meet-and-greet.

    Then, the asphalt driver will get behind the wheel of a Tyler Lozon’s second Sport Stock car to race with the Windride Transportation class.

    Tirecraft Comp 4 driver Jim Arnel drives the hauler for Hathaway and enticed the Appin native to come to South Buxton and to race on dirt for the first time.

    Hathaway made his Canadian Tire NASCAR debut in 2007 and has one race win in his six-year career - a victory on Sept. 27, 2008 at Kawartha Speedway.

    Hathaway has 14 top 5s and 44 top 10s in 71 career races.

    The 35-year-old is currently ninth in the Canadian Tire NASCAR standings with four top 5s and five top 10s in nine races.

    His best finish this season is a second at Vernon, B.C. on July 14, a race won by St. Thomas’ D.J. Kennington.

    Hathaway’s other podium finish was a third at Delaware Speedway on June 23.

    Engine problems led to a 26th-place finish in last weekend’s road race at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal.

    The series is off until Sept. 8 at Barrie, with the final two races of the 2012 season on Sept. 15 at Riverside Speedway in Nova Scotia and Sept. 22 at Kawartha.

    A wrist injured bothered Hathaway through most of the 2011 season as he finished ninth in the final standings.

    He finished a career high sixth in the 2010 with 11 top 10s.

    Before joining the Canadian Tire NASCAR Series, Hathaway was the 2006 CASCAR Super Series rookie of the year and the 2002 CASCAR Sportsman Rookie of the Year.

    Hathaway won 15 races in 2001 en route to his season championship in Delaware’s Street Stock championship.
