Jason White Heads to Monster Mile Seventh in Points
Jason White had one of his best runs of 2009 finishing fourth in last years AAA Insurance 200 at the Dover International Speedway. This season the veteran NASCAR Camping Word Truck Series driver hopes to earn his first series victory in the GunBroker.com No. 23 when the SS Green Light team heads to the Dover 200.
With an eleventh place finish two weeks ago in Kansas, White moved up to seventh in the NCWTS point standings heading to Friday evenings 200-mile race. After five races in 2009, White was not even in the top-twenty in the standings, showing a dramatic turnaround since the merger of the GunBroker.com Racing and the SS Green Light Racing teams before this season.
"I'm ready to go! We ran strong there last year so I'm very excited to get back," Jason said. "If we run as well as we did there last year, we should get another good finish and keep this GunBroker.com truck up in the points."
"Dover has been a good track for us," White said. "We're bringing a truck we call "Bullet" to the Monster Mile, it's the same truck we ran last year. We qualified good and then lost some positions on an early stop but I ran in the top-five the whole middle of the race. We pulled out our first top-five at the end. We're good to go!"
This week's Dover 200 is a rare Friday afternoon race as the trucks normally race and is televised on tape delay in primetime. "They don't have lights a Dover," said White. "It really doesn't matter when we race, I don't know why some of these tracks don't have lights. If they can light Daytona why can't they light them all?"
Following Friday night's race, White and the GunBroker.com team will travel to Pocono Raceway for a NASCAR test session at the two and a half mile tri-oval in preparation for the NCWTS race in July. "We're going to bring a truck we call "50 Cal" to Pocono for the test. It's the same truck we ran at Atlanta earlier this year."
"I've never been to Pocono so it's going to be a learning experience for myself and the crew. We'll be working on set-ups and getting the truck comfortable," White added. "There's going to be four trucks, so it should be cool to see what they all do. For me it's great to be able to get the extra track time."
Jason is scheduled to participate in the NCWTS Autograph Session held at the Camping World store in the NASCAR Fanzone from 1:00 to 2:00 on Friday afternoon.
