SUN PEAKS, British Columbia – Jason White has been away from the race track for the last few weeks, but he’s been busy with his next big project.
This weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, White will return to action in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, driving the No. 34 Powder Ventures Excavating/YourGMCTruckStore.com Chevrolet for Reaume Brothers Racing.
The last 12 months have been quite a ride in a variety of machines for White. After making his debut in the truck series last year on this same weekend, he’s raced the high-banks at Daytona International Speedway in his first ARCA Series event, competed in his 100thNASCAR Pinty’s Series race and now returns to the Truck Series at CTMP.
“It’s hard to believe what we’ve done over the last year,” said White. “I feel so much more confident in my own ability after some seat time in these trucks and racing against some really good drivers. I can’t wait to get back at it this weekend.”
Having the familiarity of working with the team at Reaume Brothers Racing also has White eager to return on the track.
“We had such a good chemistry last year right away,” said White. “Josh Reaume has a great operation and I’ll have Doug George back again as my crew chief, so I’m super pumped to get going.”
During the race a year ago White showed plenty of speed, and feels that experience sets the team up for better results this weekend.
“Having that one under our belt, knowing the procedures better, which are a little different than I’ve been used to, I won’t be making a rookie mistake of speeding on pit road this time,” explained White. “Our goal is a top-15 finish, and if things fall our way, we could find ourselves in the top 10. No doubt about it.”
Once again, this year White has partnered with long time friend and business partner Rob Zimmer and the Zimmer Weaton Group in the Gander Outdoors Truck Series.
“It’s great to have Rob and everyone back again this year; you couldn’t ask for better partners and people.”
