Stewart Friesen leads trio of Canadian drivers at Phoenix

Stewart Friesen scores his second top-six finish in his last three starts while Jason Hathaway and D.J. Kennington collect career-best finishes in a NASCAR national series event.

The second-half turnaround continues for Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario native Stewart Friesen. Friesen survived three red flags in the last 20 laps of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Phoenix Raceway Friday night to score his second sixth-place finish in the past three races.

Friesen, who has collected two top-five finishes, four top-10s and a pole this season in 18 Truck starts, piloted his No. 52 Halmar International Chevrolet around the carnage late in the race to finish as one of 10 drivers on the lead lap.

Appin, Ontario native Jason Hathaway joined Friesen in the Truck race, making his second career start in the series.

Hathaway, a veteran competitor in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series, started the Truck race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in September, finishing 15th and he moved up to finish a very respectable 11th in his first NASCAR Truck start in the U.S.

He was obviously happy at the end of the race on Friday.

“First of all I can’t believe I had the chance to run a truck at Phoenix Raceway,” Hathaway said. “Never did I think I would have finished 11th. What a great team to work with at Premium Motorsports for my first oval in NASCAR trucks. I have had a lot of support throughout my career and this race was the biggest ever.

I appreciate the support from Kubota USA and Kubota Canada to make this dream come true.”

Finally D.J. Kennington, who became the eighth Canadian to start the Daytona 500 last February, made his fourth NASCAR Cup Series start Sunday at Phoenix.

Like his close friend Hathaway, the St. Thomas, Ontario, native scored his best finish in the Cup series coming home 26th in his fifth career start.
