Jason White Nineteenth at Nashville
Nashville, TN -- Jason White and the SS Green Light Racing team brought a flaming hot florescent yellow GunBroker.com Dodge to run under the lights the Nashville Superspeedway Friday night. The team had high hopes the bright colors would bring White good luck this weekend.
However, they never found the speed they were looking for in the brightly colored truck and Jason finished a disheartening nineteenth place behind Kyle Busch.
At the start of the race, despite fighting a loose handling truck, White was able to move steadily forward from his twenty-ninth starting spot reaching twenty-fourth by the tenth lap and into the top-twenty by lap thirty. Kyle Busch was setting a blistering pace at the head of the field and was closing in on White's mount when the races first caution came on lap 32 for debris on the track.
The timely caution kept Jason on the lead lap, Crew Chief Doug Howe called White to the attention of the SS Green Light crew who changed four Goodyear's, made a chassis adjustment and topped Jason's florescent yellow Dodge off with Sunoco racing gas.
White's truck was still too loose for his liking and he fell a lap to the leaders during a long green flag run which included green flag pit stops. Up front Busch was running away with the race, lapping all but the top-eight trucks.
Only two cautions flew in the 150-lap race, leaving very few opportunities to make adjustments on the trucks and the GunBroker.com crew was not able to help White find the handle on his truck resulting in a nineteenth place finish.
"We brought a truck to Nashville we thought would run good here, but it was just too loose from the time we unloaded," said White. "Track position is so important and we didn't give ourselves a chance starting in the back."
White earned the O'Reilly Auto Parts Position Improvement award by finishing ten spots ahead of his starting position.
After four races in the 2010 NCWTS season, Jason stands eighth in the point standings behind leader Timothy Peters.
The next race for Jason White and the GunBroker.com team is The O'Reilly Auto Parts 250 on May 2, 2010 at the Kansas Speedway.
