"No. 08 GunBroker.com Dodge Looking Good"
LEBANON, Tennessee (April 14, 2006) - - Smooth and solid were the best two words to describe the vibe around the newly formed Ashton Gray Racing team Friday from Nashville Superspeedway.
Ashton Gray Racing, owned by Dwayne Gaulding and Barry Tudor appear to be well on their way to making their NASCAR Busch Series debut with driver Jason White Saturday afternoon after posting a very respectable 28th fastest lap in the final practice session leading up to time trials for the Pepsi 300.
White, hailing from Virginia hustled his No. 08 GunBroker.com Dodge Charger around the 1.333-mile track with a time of 30.040 seconds at 159.747 MPH putting him 28th out of 44. "I'm really happy with the car," said Jason following the practice. "We were fastest in qualifying trim. Hopefully it will stick for tomorrow's (Saturday) run and we'll have a good showing in the race."
White continued, "I want GunBroker.com to be pleased with the program we have put together and thus far, I'm tickled. I want to thank all of the crew, Dwayne and Barry for their hard work and efforts to put this No. 08 GunBroker.com Dodge on the track."
For Gaulding, he's pumped. "Man, as a team we are excited. To come off the hauler as solid as we have, we've put together a good program. There are a lot of eyes on us this weekend and we plan to make the best of it."
Barry Tudor echoes his partner's statement. "I'm very please on how everything has come together. I couldn't ask for more. We made it through inspection and practice clean. Now we'll concentrate on making the show and giving GunBroker.com the best possible finish we can."
