Jason White, driver of the No. 08 GunBroker.com Dodge Charger
On The Last Race;
Martinsville Speedway: "We are very happy with our performance despite the finish last weekend at Martinsville. We unloaded strong and competitive. We qualified very well for the race and we were in good position for our best finish of the season before we encountered mechanical woes. We hope to rebound Saturday night."
On GunBroker.com Returning As Primary Sponsor:
"It's been great having GunBroker.com as a sponsor. They have really been a part of this team and we consider them family. I really think we have one of the coolest looking cars on the track and it's all thanks to GunBroker.com"
On Gateway International Speedway:
"It's been three years since I've raced at Gateway, but I love racing here. I ran very well in the Busch car for Jay Robinson Racing and I think we have a great shot at our first top-15 finish this weekend. Gateway is a very unique racetrack. If we can avoid the mechanical gremlins that have stopped us from finishing the race, I think we'll turn some heads."
Dwayne Gaulding, co-owner of the No. 08 GunBroker.com Dodge Charger:
On The Last Race;
Martinsville Speedway: "We really thought we were bringing home our first top-20 finish together last weekend but we got burned again by something out of our control. I'm really proud of everyone on the Ashton Gray Racing team. We unloaded very strong and qualified a solid 28th. During the race Jason did an awesome job, unfortunately we just didn't get the results again. Hopefully Martinsville was the last race of bad luck for us."
On Gateway International Raceway:
"The GunBroker.com Racing team is looking forward to some Saturday night racing. The entire team is confident in the Dodge Charger we are bringing and Jason has some experience at Gateway and that will help us. I have a good vibe that this is our weekend to score our best finish of the season."
