Jason White Looking Forward To “Going Home”
Mar 26, 2008 - updated Mar 26th, 2008 4:21pm
Web posted by Press release

Martinsville, Va --

When the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series resumes action at the paperclip racetrack of Martinsville Speedway on Saturday, March 29, it will be one of the biggest events on the 2008 calendar for longtime NASCAR veteran driver Jason White.



White, driver of the No. 08 GunBroker.com Dodge Ram for SS-Green Light Racing hails from Powhatan, Virginia. Knowing that he’ll plenty of fans in the stands, White would like nothing more than reward his fans, friends and family with a career best finish in the Kroger 250.



“Anytime I race at Martinsville, it’s a big deal to me,” said White, who is in his first year of competition for SS-Green Light Racing. “It’s been a long-time since I’ve actually been there but it’s a track that holds a lot of value to me. I love short track racing. When you can throw that type of racing and a hometown race to boot; it’s a win-win situation.”



Sitting 26th in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series point standings, White knows that a solid run is vital in gaining ground on the rest of the competition.



“We need a good run,” explained White, who will make his 33rd NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start at Martinsville. “We’ve had some good truck but haven’t for one reason or another been able to produce the finishes that this team deserves. Hopefully Martinsville will turn it around.”



Oddly enough with all of his experience in NASCAR, White only has one prior start at the Martinsville, Virginia facility. Rewinding back to his first year of NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series competition, White roared his No. 86 Dodge from the 27th starting position and moved solidly through the field to net a 13th place finish.



The Martinsville effort is White’s best NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series finish to date.



“It’s been a while since that day in 2001,” continued White. “That day was good, real good. But it’s time to update the record book. I would like to put our No. 08 GunBroker.com Dodge into the top-10 and put our 2008 season back on track.”



When asked about surviving Martinsville, White paused but was quick to answer.



“Using your head and having brakes,” stated White, who currently holds 72 starts between the NASCAR Nationwide and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. “Every driver has to try and remind themselves that they cannot win a short track in the first thirty laps. You have to be around in the end. At Martinsville in particular, you have to have brakes. Without brakes, it can be a real long day.”



“For us it’s about qualifying strong and staying near the lead pack. With a little luck we’ll be able to have a good run and really give all the Virginia natives something to be proud about.”



The Kroger 250 (250 laps/131.5 miles) is the fourth of 25 events on the 2008 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series schedule. Practice begins on Friday, March 28 with a fifty minute session from 11:00pm-11:50am. A Happy Hour session has been etched in from 1:45-3:30pm. Bud pole qualifying is scheduled for Saturday, March 29 set to roll off at 10:10am. The race will be broadcasted live on FOX beginning at 3:00pm. MRN will handle the airwaves starting at 2:30pm. The race will also be available via Sirius satellite radio channel 128 also launching at 2:30pm. All times are local.
