Saskatoon, Sask. July 17, 2013. Vehicle damage at the hands of other drivers cut Jason White’s day short in last night’s race at the Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 presented by Bayer CropScience at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway.
Jason White and his #21 Bowers & Wilkins Dodge got off to a rough start in practice, and struggled through both sessions. Crew Chief Mike Ernst worked hard to solve the handling issues, but the team didn’t qualify well despite their efforts. #21 started off the race in 17th.
Race leaders lapped White, but he continued to fight his way through the race and make as much progress as he could. Trouble continued to follow #21, when he was the victim of an accident involving other cars.
“A couple of lead lap cars got together and I had nowhere to go and hit the right front,” he said. “Bent the toe on the car and got a flat. I had to come in and we went laps down.”
White did his best to soldier on through the remainder, but struggled behind the wheel of a damaged car that was laps down from the leaders.
He eventually finished in 15th place.
“We’ll pull ourselves together before St. Eustache and hopefully change this bad luck we’ve had follow us around,” White said.
Jason White sits in 10th place in the season standings with 182 points.
