MOORESVILLE, N.C. — SR² Motorsports announced today that NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Nationwide Series and Canadian Tire Series driver Derek White has joined the Buford, Ga.-based Nationwide Series team as a minority owner.
White’s stake in the team has already paid dividends. He landed a multi-race sponsorship with HEADRUSH Apparel, which will adorn Jason White’s No. 00 Toyota Camry this week at Phoenix Int’l Raceway. HEADRUSH Apparel will run at select races throughout the 2013 season.
White, a North American Indian from Kahnawake, Quebec brings a strong combination of racing passion and experience to SR² Motorsports. He began driving in racing’s top levels in 2009, making five starts as an owner/driver in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series and two starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. He followed the season up by winning the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Rookie of the Year honors in 2010. In 2012, he broke into the Nationwide Series, competing with SR² Motorsports in four events, finishing a season-best 18th-place at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. White is excited to return to the three-car team as a partner in 2013.
“I’m very excited to continue my relationship with SR² Motorsports,” said White. “I enjoyed working with them last year and was very impressed with what they achieved in their first season. They’ve made several improvements in the off season and I’m glad that I can continue to be a part of the organization as it goes forward.”
SR² Motorsports began as a two-car team in the Nationwide Series last season. They acquired McDonald Motorsports to become a three-car team for 2013. Sciavicco is pleased to have White remain with the team as it progresses.
“We’re very excited to have Derek White join our team in a larger role,” said Sciavicco. “His experience will be very valuable to our organization. He’s already made a tremendous contribution by bringing HEADRUSH Apparel on board as an SR² Motorsports partner. We’re poised to have a terrific 2013 season and know that Derek will play a big part in that.”
