INNISILLE, Ontario — Canadian stock car driver Jason White plans to return to the NASCAR Pinty’s Series Aug. 15 at Ontario’s Sunset Speedway.
White will pilot the DJK Racing No. 28 Powder Ventures Excavating Dodge in the first event of the season for the series.
“I couldn’t be happier,” said White. “After running so well in Daytona in February, I was looking at a few different opportunities to run other events at Talladega and some other spots. Of course, everything came to a stop because of COVID-19 and I’ve been waiting for the right time to get back in action. This fits perfectly, it’s a chance to salute all those people who worked hard on the frontlines and give race fans some entertainment.”
Last season Jason White became the first ever driver from western Canada to reach 100 starts in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series.
“It was special” said White. “It worked out nicely that I could hit the 100th at Saskatoon, hitting that milestone in the west and having my family there to share in the night with me made it extra special.”
“It’s great to have Jason back with us this season,” said DJK Racing principal D.J. Kennington. “He’s a great guy to work with, he knows how to take care of the car and he’s competitive. A perfect fit.”
Now that he’s locked in for this Pinty’s Series race at Sunset Speedway White will also look for additional events in which he can participate.
“I’m waiting to see what other Canadian dates are confirmed and then hopefully we can do more racing here and I’ll monitor what’s happening in the U.S. as well to see if that is a possibility,” explained White.
