BOWMANVILLE, ON (May 19, 2019)- Sun Peaks, BC racer Jason White opened up the 2019 NASCAR Pinty’s Series season and his #RaceTo100 campaign in his #21 Powder Ventures Excavating Dodge this past weekend on the famed road course at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

White started the Clarington 200 from the 14thspot on the grid and it didn’t take long to move forward several positions. Crew Chief Larry Jackson made the call to have White make his scheduled pit stops for fuel and tires for the #21 Powder Ventures Excavating Dodge before the halfway mark. It was a smart strategy.
As the race laps ticked away and other teams cycled through pit stops White benefitted with better track position and a fast car. At one point restarting the #21 Powder Ventures Excavating Dodge in fifth position.
“It felt so good to run up front with these great drivers” said White.
