Derek White Returns to SR2 Motorsports For Road Course Action

With the NASCAR Nationwide Series geared up for some road course action for the second time this season, Canadian Derek White prepares to return to the driver’s seat as well.  White will once again climb behind the wheel of the No. 24 Toyota of SR2 Motorsports for the running of the Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen International in scenic Watkins Glen, New York.


“We are excited to have Derek back behind the wheel of our SR2 Motorsports Toyota,” stated SR2 Motorsports team owner Jason Sciavicco.  “He drove for us at Road America earlier this year and he did a great job before we had an oil leak late in the race end our day.  These NASCAR Nationwide Series road course events are some of the most exciting races all year for the fans and I think for the teams as well.  We have worked hard on our road course package since Road America and look forward to a great race this weekend in Watkins Glen.”


The start on Saturday will be White’s sixth career start in the NASCAR Nationwide Series and his second this year with his previous start at the road course of Road America.


Much like that Road America event, White and the SR2 Motorsports team will be sponsored by VIP Poker for the 200 mile event at Watkins Glen.  Situated in Kahnawake territory, just a short drive from Montreal, VIP is the epicenter of the Quebec poker boom. VIP is brought to you by management who has long understood and catered to the desires of the local poker playing population. VIP knows what players want; VIP knows what players deserve. The room was founded on the principal that all players should be treated as VIP’s.


Derek will be joined by SR2 Motorsports teammate Blake Koch who will pilot the No. 00 Toyota for the team.  The event will be Blake’s 17th start of the season and he currently sits 24th in the NASCAR Nationwide Series driver standings.


The running of the Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen International begins at 2:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, August 10, 2013.  The race can be viewed LIVE nationally on ABC Sports and heard on affiliated MRN radio stations and on Sirius NASCAR Radio 90.
