Ryan Lawler Ready for Second Ever NASCAR Truck Race
Lawler to pilot #07 SS Green Light Chevrolet

Ryan Lawler made his NASCAR Truck Series debut at Martinsville Speedway just a few weeks ago. Lawler started 19th and finished 17th. While that isn't the type of finish that the 2007 PASS South Series champion is used to, he was very satisfied with the result considering that it was his debut in one of NASCAR's three biggest series. He's equally excited to move onto the second race of his career and improve on what he learned in round one.

"I had a blast racing with the truck series guys," said Lawler. "It was kind of frustrating running in the back because I'm not used to that. But we're going to work on it and get better for the next race. Hopefully, we'll put together some good finishes this year."

Lawler is now focused on a totally different kind of race track. "Kansas is going to be very different from Martinsville. I'm looking forward to it though. This is the next phase of my career and I hope to showcase my ability to race at this level."

Jason White Looking for Revenge on Bad Luck at Martinsville White to pilot #08 GunBroker.com Dodge

Jason White was holding off NASCAR Truck Series Champion Ron Hornaday for 11th position and was pressuring Travis Kvapil for 10th at Martinsville with just a few laps remaining. A red flag came out and when White returned to racing his #08 GunBroker.com Dodge was out of fuel ending his day in 27th. This had been the story of White's season so far. White and the GunBroker.com team led by Crew Chief Doug Howe are looking towards Kansas as a turn-around race.

"We just can't catch a break," expressed White. "Martinsville was really disappointing. We were headed for a great finish and most off all were going to end our bad luck streak."

"In this game you have to have thick skin and you can't let these times drag you down," added White. "I'm looking forward to Kansas. Racing is tough, but no matter if you win or lose it doesn't last long and you're onto the next race. We can't dwell on the past and just have to learn from it and keep moving forward. We hope Kansas can be a turning point for us and get this team finishing where we know we can be."
