Local NASCAR driver Racin’ Jason White has inched closer to 100 career races in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series after a successful 98th race at the Toronto Indy this weekend. The veteran racer earned himself yet another top 10 finish, placing him eighth in this year’s series.
“This CBRT (Canada’s Best Racing Team) have given me cars that are a step above what I’ve had before and it’s allowing us to show what we can do,” said White in a press release to SPIN.
Starting in 11th position, White quickly moved into the top ten and was looking to move forward past eighth when he ran into a little trouble on the fifth corner and damaged his vehicle.
“I went through the corner on a slightly different line, then the car got wheel hopping and I hit the wall,” he said.
White recognized the hard work of his team and said they did a great job getting him back on the track with enough time to get back into tenth place.
“The car was really strong again this week,” said White. “I could really race with a lot of serious contenders.”
White is now turning his attention to his upcoming doubleheader in Saskatoon, Sask. on July 24 where he will complete his goal of 100 career races.
