Mirabel, Que. July 7, 2013 – Long stretches of green didn’t do Jason White any favors at Sunday’s Jiffy Lube 100 at Circuit ICAR.
The #21’s Bowers & Wilkins Dodge felt good during the initial practice, and slight adjustments between sessions perked up the vehicle for the second round.
“The car had a little more bite off the corners and felt good after the changes,” White said after qualifying 16th for the contest, and nearly the best in his qualifying group.
Early on in the race, #21 was involved in minor contact with another car. Luckily, the Bowers & Wilkins Dodge was able to forge on despite the incident.
As the race progressed, White struggled with performance issues on the Bowers & Wilkins Dodge. The contest wasn’t granted any restarts, which didn’t help give #21 a fresh start at making any gains in the field.
“Handling wasn’t the best but we battled as hard as we could,” White said after the race.
White in his #21 Dodge continued to push hard, and he finally caught a break with a late caution that closed the field back up. White utilized every tactic in the book to push forward in the closing laps, eventually coming home in 14th place.
“It was a tough race all day, hot in the car and it didn’t handle too well, but we finished ahead of where we started. I also have to give a huge thanks to Mike Ernst who was a one man band working on the car this weekend, he did a great job,” White said.
White and his team are looking forward to next weekend’s race at the A&W 300. The #21 earned an admirable fifth place finish in last year’s contest, and will once again race against his brother Jim White.
