Jason White, Ashton Gray Racing Martinsville Speedway Pre-Race Quotes:
Jason White, driver of the No. 08 GunBroker.com Dodge Charger
On The Last Race; The Milwaukee Mile: "We weren't happy with the finish, but we weren't disappointed either. We are a new team, I have to remember that. We didn't finish the race at Nashville (brakes), but we took the checkered flag at The Milwaukee Mile and that was one of our goals. We used Milwaukee as a testing session and we're looking forward to the rest of the season."
On GunBroker.com Returning As Primary Sponsor: "Can't say enough about GunBroker.com. I'm really excited to have them on board for one of my hometown races. This is an important race to me and I would like nothing more than to give GunBroker.com and Ashton Gray Racing our first top ten finish together."
On Martinsville Speedway: "I'm looking forward to returning to Martinsville. It's been five years since I've competed in a race at the track. In 2001, I scored my career best NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series finish of 13th driving the No. 86 Dodge. I love short track racing and I know how to get around Martinsville, I think we're a sleeper for this weekend's race."
Dwayne Gaulding, co-owner of the No. 08 GunBroker.com Dodge Charger:
On The Last Race; The Milwaukee Mile: "Everyone at Ashton Gray Racing is pleased with the progress we are making. The Milwaukee Mile presented a great challenge to this race team and I think we faired well. We survived the race and brought the car home in one piece, that's a plus in itself. The Milwaukee Mile was definitely a step in the right direction."
On Martinsville Speedway: "The Ashton Gray Racing team cannot wait to get to Martinsville Speedway. This is one of my favorite races we've selected this year. Jason is a hero to the fans in the stands this weekend and that's great exposure for us. We're looking forward to strong results for our GunBroker.com Racing team."
