Jason White Sits Third in Points Heading to Martinsville

Jason White and the SS Green Light Racing team had very high expectations coming into the 2010 season, White and the GunBroker.com No. 23 team merged with the SS Green Light Racing team to take advantage of the combined resources of the two teams.

After finishing fourth at Daytona and eleventh at Atlanta, the team's goal of a top-five finish in the points looks to have merit; the Virginia native sits third in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series standings as the trucks head back to White's home state of Virginia for the Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway.

Doug Howe and the GunBroker.com team have spent the last three weeks preparing for the first short track event of the NCWTS season. White has run well at the tight paper-clipped shaped half-mile in the past; completing 99.5% of all possible laps in his five previous races but only has two top-fifteen finishes to show.

"We have a really good short-track truck, Doug and the guys in the GunBroker.com shop have been working their butts off trying to make it better," White stated. "We led some laps at Martinsville last year, but something always seems to happen and keep us out of the top-ten."

"I'm excited about the start we've had this year, I won't be satisfied with a good run and another top-fifteen finish at Martinsville," he added. "Right now it's all about momentum and carrying forward what we have done to start the year and to keep this team at the top of the point standings."

"We set goals, developed a program that we felt could meet those goals and now we are working hard to make those goals reality. I was disappointed with eleventh at Atlanta but it was good enough to move us up to third in the points. I said it before, but you need to put yourself into position to win before you can win. You have to run smart at Martinsville, there is so many things that can happen but I plan to put this team into position to win again."

Bobby Dotter, General Manager of SS Green Light Racing feels the GunBroker.com team is ready to for a breakout short track race. "I'm real proud of the effort put forth by all of our teams this year. The offseason moves we made have really boosted our performance and it's very exciting for everyone involved in our team."

"Jason and Doug have had several years working together and they have a great relationship on and off the track," Dotter added. "I think the experience they have working together and the pieces we have assembled around them is reason for the early season success. There should be no reason for the success not to continue this week at Martinsville."
