Bowmanville, ON (May 22, 2017)- Veteran racer Jason White returned to competition in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series for the season opening event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park this past Sunday. The driver of the #21 Powder Ventures Excavating/Your GMC Store Chevrolet showed some slick moves during the race and just missed out on a terrific finish.
Working with the Canada’s Best Racing Team (CBRT) group this year White was thrilled to be back in action.
“Every off season seems a little longer and I just miss the competition and the great people,” he stated. “It’s great to be working with CBRT on a program this season.
White was also impressed with the car’s performance during Saturday practice and qualifying.
“It is a hot rod,” said White. “Really felt good, even better than when we tested the car a couple weeks ago. Good work by the team”.
White would begin the scheduled 51 lap race from the outside of row eight and looked to move the #21 Powder Ventures Excavating/Your GMC Store Chevrolet forward in the early going and was successful.
“It was pretty crazy out there. We started and the track was wet, then it started drying up and you had guys switching to slick tires. We kept doing our thing and kept moving up,” he stated.
As the laps ticked away White would push the #21 Powder Ventures Excavating/Your GMC Store Chevy forward and found himself inside the top-ten.
“If you just stay consistent here it can work very well for you” he explained.
Track conditions were anything but consistent on the day as heavier rain showers moved into the area and soaked the track in the late stages. White continued to look for opportunities to improve his position but would slide off course. Things then went from bad to worse for the #21 Powder Ventures Excavating/Your GMC Store Chevy driver as the car stalled and wouldn’t re-fire.
“We lost a couple laps waiting for help and that put us back,” said a disappointed driver. “We got going again to come home 14th but it could have been a really good day. But we ran so consistently all day and I’m excited to get back at it in a couple of weeks” said White.
Jason White returns to action in the #21 Powder Ventures Excavating/Your GMC Store Chevrolet on Saturday June 3rd at Delaware Speedway near London, Ontario.
