Revving up for the NASCAR Pinty’s Series season opener May 19 at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ont., Sun Peaks local and racing veteran Jason White is preparing for a historic season.
White is closing in on his 100th start in the series which will earn him the title of the longest standing western driver in the Pinty’s Series. The milestone achievement will happen at Wyant Group Raceway in Saskatoon, Sask. on July 24 during the second of two races.
“I’ve had my eye on that number for a while,” said White in a press release. “A few years ago it seemed far away, but now that it’s getting closer I’m super proud to hitting that mark in this great series”.
This season White will take part in six races for Canada’s Best Racing Team as he races to his goal..
“I started talking with Joey a while back and to see all they’ve done over the winter to take their team to the next level is something. Working with Wight Motorsports Inc. to prepare cars, I can’t wait to get on track. I did a quick shakedown of the car at CTMP and man was it fast, I can’t wait to get going in a couple of weeks,” he said.
White plans to get his fans involved with celebrating his career’s success and will be putting out some “cool things to chronicle not just the lead up to the season but from past events too.”
