Jason White Hangs On for Fourteenth at Magic Mile

Loudon, NH -- September 18, 2010. Some days just don't seem to go as planned. Saturday at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway was one of those days for NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Jason White. Jason was looking forward to the series annual visit to the flat one-mile track, but when the dust settled, he and the SS Green Light Racing team are glad to be heading to Las Vegas next week.

The Virginia native survived several close calls on the track including a spin to finish fourteenth in the TheRaceDayRaffleSeries.com 175 and posted his twelfth lead-lap finish of the 2010 campaign, the most of his NCWTS career.

White qualified the GunBroker.com No. 23 Chevy nineteenth in the morning multi-truck qualifying session with a lap of 30.48 seconds at just under 125 mph.

Jason picked up several positions early in the race, moving into the top-fifteen by lap ten before dropping back several positions. Cup regulars Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick were running away from the field and put Jason a lap down on lap thirty-nine. The pair had lapped all but the top eleven trucks when a caution flew on lap 62 for debris on the track.

White would line up behind teammate David Starr on the restart. The pair was racing hard for the fifteenth position when Jason went low with two wheels on the apron to try to move around his teammate when his GunBroker.com No. 23 broke loose and spun. Luckily no other trucks made contact and Jason held his Chevy Silverado off the wall and continued on to the attention of the SS Green Light Racing crew.

Shortly after the restart there was more excitement for the SS Green Light team when Starr was spun-out by another truck right in front of Jason's Chevy who narrowly avoided contact and earned the "Lucky Dog" award to return to the lead lap.

Jason would stay in the top-fifteen for the second half of the race, but his GunBroker.com Chevy did not have the speed to make a move toward the front of the field and finished the 175-lap race in fourteenth place. It was White's thirteenth top-fifteen finish of the season.

Kyle Busch led 156 of the 175 laps to win his fifth NCWTS race of the 2010 season.

White maintained tenth in NCWTS point standings behind leader Todd Bodine. Jason is 118 points behind SS Green Light Racing teammate David Starr who is in ninth.

The next race for Jason White and the SS Green Light team is the Smiths 350 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Saturday, September 25th.
