Jason White, No. 23 GunBroker.com Ford, Pocono Raceway Preview
Jason White on the “Tricky Triangle”: “Pocono is definitely a very unique and different track. The track has three very different corners and the challenge there is to get your truck to handle as best as it can overall – there is a reason why they call it the Tricky Triangle. I enjoy racing at Pocono as the uniqueness of it makes it very fun to drive. They have repaved the track since we last raced there so it will have a lot of grip and make it much faster. It should be very interesting through places like the tunnel turn. The new pavement also presents a challenge with the racing grooves, as usually with new pavement it takes some time to work in multiple racing grooves.
“We are taking our new truck that the GunBroker.com team has built. After we debuted it in Kentucky, the guys took it back and tweaked it a little more – so I am excited to race it this week. I think we could have something pretty special with this truck.”
Jason at Pocono:This will mark Jason’s third career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at the 2.5-mile track in the Pocono Mountains. His best finish was 10th during the 2010 season after starting in the 16th position. He has an average starting position of 18.0 and average finish of 13.5. Jason also made his one and only NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start at Pocono Raceway last year where he finished 33rd driving for FAS Lane Racing.
Race Rewind: The annual visit to Chicagoland Speedway for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series has become one of excitement and survival and Jason White provided both on Saturday night during the 150-lap event. An exciting green-white-checkered finish would see White and his No.23 GunBroker.com Ford survive for a much deserved ninth place finish in the running of the American Ethanol 225.
The finish moved Jason up into the 10th position in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series drivers’ standings – only seven points out of the ninth spot.

In honor of the team’s sponsor, GunBroker.com, the GB Racing team uses gun and shooting themed names for most of their trucks – thus the name “Sniper”. “Sniper” is a new truck that Jason ran for the first time last month at Kentucky Speedway. Jason and the team also just tested “Sniper” at Michigan International Speedway on Monday at the Goodyear tire test.
