Jason White Earns Spot In '07 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Opener

Virginia's Jason White will return to NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series action Friday night after posting the 35th quickest lap Thursday evening in qualifying for the first event of the 2007 NCTS season.

White, piloting the No. 63 GunBroker.com Ford F-150 for Mike Mittler's MB Motorsports, will make his first career start in a truck at the "World Center of Speed", and returns to the series after a nearly four-year hiatus.

"I'm glad we're in the show," said White who posted a lap of 52.418 seconds at 171.697 MPH locking him into the 35th starting position. "I really thought we would have picked up, but we slowed down. We knew the car wouldn't be the best by itself, but we're pretty solid in the draft."

White, who will make his 12th NCTS start Friday continued, "I drafted with Mike (Skinner), Todd (Bodine) and Ted (Musgrave) and we were able to stay with them, so that's very encouraging. We're looking for a great, solid run for GunBroker.com and MB Motorsports Friday and I think it's achievable. We hope to avoid any early carnage and be around when it counts."

The Chevy Silverado HD 250 (100 laps-250 miles) is the first of 25 events on the 2007 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series schedule. The race will be broadcasted live on the SPEED channel beginning at 8:00pm EST with a pre-race show scheduled for 7:30pm EST. MRN will handle the airwaves starting at 7:30pm EST. The race will also be available via Sirius satellite radio channel 128 also launching at 7:30pm EST.
