Jason White Pumped-up for Talladega

Jason White is pumped-up and ready to go. He's ready to get to the Talladega Superspeedway and prove the strength of the speedway program the SS Green Light team showed at the season opener at Daytona.

Back in February, White won his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Pole and finished fourth in the NextEra Energy Resources 250. The team is bringing the same truck to Talladega this week. Jason is ready to show the early-season run was no fluke and he plans to put the GunBroker.com/Pursuit Channel No. 23 Ford back up to the front of the field.

"We think we're going to be just as good or better than we were at Daytona," a confident White said. "We are bringing the same Ford that we ran at Daytona, but we just didn't let it sit in the shop. We worked on it to try to make it even better. We know everyone else is going to be better. You can't stand still in this sport or your going to get beat."

"We should have some great horsepower again and I am just so excited to get to the track and see what we've got. I think we should have a great shot at the Pole again and we should be strong for the whole race. To many things can happen at that track, so I'm not going to make a prediction but we'll have a truck good enough to win. We just need to be smart and be there at the end of the race."

White has three previous starts at NASCAR's largest and fastest track, however the high-banks have not been kind to him in the past as he has failed to see the checkered flag at any of the events, suffering mechanical failures each of the last two seasons. Jason had a very strong qualifying run of fourth in 2009, but an engine failure ended his day after only 29 laps.

Following his impressive fourth place run at Martinsville last week, Jason moved back in the top-ten in the NCWTS standings behind fellow SS Green Light driver David Starr.

"We had a great truck last week at Martinsville, but all the restarts at the end really cost us. Man, we were right there. We were good enough to win and I think we can be right there again with the GunBroker.com/Pursuit Channel Ford this week at Talladega. I not only plan on finishing a race there, but I plan to finish up front."

The Mountain Dew 250 is White's 101st NCWTS start and also the 242nd consecutive NCWTS start for the SS Green Light Racing team.
