The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway is historically an exciting and surprising event and Saturday night was no different. Jason White, battling some handling issues on his No. 23 GunBroker.com Ford, wrestled away a 13th-place finish in the running of the Smith’s 350 at the Las Vegas, Nevada track.
White started the 146-lap event from the 16th position as a result of his qualifying effort on Friday night at the 1.5-mile track. With an enthusiastic crowd greeting the series, White would maneuver his GunBroker.com Ford clear of many on track incidents while his crew made chassis adjustments to improve the handling. The adjustments greatly improved the performance of the No. 23 GunBroker.com Ford and Jason remained clear of various on track incidents to come home with a 13th-place finish.
“We really chased the handling of our truck out there tonight,” stated White. “No matter what we did the truck just didn’t respond like we needed it to. We were able to make it better there towards the end and it was the best at that point.”
The 13th-place finish moved White up to 10th position in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series drivers’ standings – a mere 11 points out of the ninth position.
“The guys on this GunBroker.com team really worked hard tonight on making adjustments on our truck,” added Jason. “The track seemed to be a little tricky out there and it was difficult to get your truck to respond to the changes. But we battled and never gave up and that is what this team has done all year.”
