Jason White Heads West with High Hopes

The last time the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series visited a short-track Jason White was upfront contending for the victory. And although the Phoenix International Raceway is nearly twice the size of Martinsville, White and the SS Green Light Racing team have high hope to repeat that performance in the Arizona desert on Friday evening when the NCWTS competes in the Lucas Oil 150.

The NCWTS has traveled to the uniquely shaped track in the desert each season since 1995, however Jason has only two previous starts at the track with a best finish of twenty-second in 2008. Last season mechanical issues slowed the Virginia native at the one-mile track located just west of Phoenix, dropping him to a thirty-third place finish.

Jason sits tenth in the NCWTS point standings with just two races remaining in the 2010 season which ends next week at Homestead. He is seventy points ahead of Ricky Carmichael for the tenth spot in the driver standings.

"After we ran so good at Martinsville, we decided to use the same truck for this race," White said. "We had talked about bringing a different truck out to Phoenix, but we feel it ran so good with on the flat half-mile at Martinsville it made the most sense to run it at Phoenix. I have to give credit to Doug (Crew Chief Doug Howe) and the GunBroker guys for working so hard to turn-around the truck while they were on the road."

"I'm really excited to have the Mule Deer Foundation join us and I'm ready to get this GunBroker.com Toyota back up to the front again."

The Lucas Oil 150 is White's 103rd NCWTS start and the 244th consecutive NCWTS start for the SS Green Light Racing team.
