Jason White Looking Forward to Loudon

A strong top-five performance moved Jason White back into the top-ten in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series point standings two weeks ago at Kentucky. The SS Green Light team hopes to build upon the confidence from that race heading into the TheRaceDayRaffleSeries.com 175 Saturday afternoon at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

The Virginia native will make his fourth start at the flat one-mile track in Loudon, New Hampshire this weekend White will be piloting the GunBroker.com No. 23 Chevrolet. Jason qualified twelfth last year and had a strong truck early running well up into the top-ten until mechanical issues sidelined the GunBroker.com truck just fifty-five laps into the race.

The NCWTS is coming off of its first idle week since July 11th, a grueling nine-week stretch that leaves even the most prepared teams physically tired and mentally drained. "I'm really excited to get back to the track. I think having a week off was great for the guys in the GunBroker.com shop to catch-up on some of the trucks, but I'm ready to race," added Jason. "We're going to bring a Chevy this weekend, it's a truck we've run before, but we've converted it over for New Hampshire."

2010 has been an up and down year for the veteran Truck Series driver. Since winning the pole and finishing fourth at the season opener in Daytona, White had accumulated four top-ten finishes before three straight engine failures at Nashville, Darlington and Bristol dropped him from the top-ten in the point standings. White made a solid rebound with eleventh and fourth place finishes at Chicago and Kentucky to bring him back into the top-ten and the SS Green Light team is ready to finish the season strong.

"The last two weeks we've made a nice comeback," White explained. "We've got seven more races. So there is a lot of racing left and we are going to do everything we can to improve our position in the points and we're gunning for that first win."

TheRaceDayRaffleSeries.com 175 marks 239th consecutive NCWTS start for the SS Green Light Racing team and the 98th career start for White in the Truck series.
