Sun Peaks, B.C.’s Jason White ran his best-ever NASCAR series finish in front of his hometown crowd this weekend at the Motoplex Speedway, headlined by his vehicle’s sponsor, at the A&W Cruisin’ the Dub 300.
Despite a less-than-favorable 11th place starting position, White was in a good position to edge easily into the top ten and he successfully stayed inside for most of the race, eventually finishing 5th, this best-ever series finish.
Jason’s brother Jim, also behind the wheel at the Motoplex, ran close by his brother early on, and later finished 7th.
Jason White’s #21 Dodge had some collision problems, first making contact with the back end of #69 and later with #44. His initial bump with #69 caused some buckling in the hood of his A&W Dodge, but his crew worked quickly to clear it.
“Despite the contact I had with a couple cars, my vehicle continued to handle really well,” Jason White said after the race.
“The car was great, the cautions fell at the right times and it worked out great,” Jason said. “The crew was phenomenal at pit stops, we beat five cars out on our left side tire stop. It was great to do it in front of the A&W crew and so many friends.”
Jason’s next Canadian Tire Series race takes place at the Edmonton City Centre Airport on July 22. Jim White will return to the track in the seventh race of the series, July 25 at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
