Jason White Ready to Gun Down Daytona

Jason White and the SS Green Light Racing team have prepared long and hard over the past few months for the start of the 2010 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. At the race shop, a special emphasis has been placed on the season opening Nextra Energy at Daytona International Speedway on February 12th as the restructured team makes its assault on the 2010 NCWTS Points Championship.

GunBroker.com returns for its fifth season with White, who drove for SS Green Light Racing in 2008. Then in 2009, GunBroker.com formed its own team and had a very successful year finishing sixteenth in points while scoring two top-five and four top-ten finishes. For the 2010 season, the GunBroker.com team has joined forces with SS Green Light Racing who also had a successful 2009 to form an even stronger multi-truck team.

"I am extremely excited to get back behind the wheel, I just can't wait to get to Daytona," the Virginia native said. "You do stuff all winter long but there is nothing like the couple weeks leading up to this race. My crew chief Doug Howe and all the guys have worked hard to be prepared and I think we have a great shot to qualify up front and keep the GunBroker.com No. 23 at the front of the draft all night."

This season, Howe will have the support of Bobby Dotter, who will move from the pit box of the SS Green Light No. 07 team to the General Manager role. "Having Bobby to help us out is the added ingredient that we need to help us get to the next level," added White. "It all starts at Daytona; if you have a good run to start the year it builds so much confidence for the whole season."

Steve Urvan, CEO of GunBroker.com, said "Last year we surprised a lot of people by qualifying eighth at Daytona. This year we are shooting (pun intended) for the pole. We feel strongly that we have the equipment, crew and the driver to do it."

Ken Smith, co-owner of SS Green Light Racing, stated "Steve and I share the dream of running an elite racing program, which is why I suggested we pool our resources to catapult Jason White and SS Green Light Racing to the top level of NCWTS contenders."

"Daytona is always an exciting race as it is the kick-off of the season. It is where the teams show off their hard work from the winter. I know Jason and Doug are more than ready. Building upon the successes from last year and the efforts our team put forth in the offseason, we really expect to be our best season ever."
