Jason White and his GB Racing team once again battled the balance of their No. 23 GunBroker.com Ford as well as classic NASCAR Camping World Truck Series racing on Saturday night at Iowa Speedway. When the checkered flag flew, White and his No. 23 Ford crossed the finish line in the 12th position in the running of the American Ethanol 200 at the Newton, Iowa track.
White started the 200-lap event from the 19th position as a result of his qualifying effort earlier on a beautiful day in the Heartland. The early portion of the 175-mile event would see the No. 23 GunBroker.com Ford maintain its track position. But it didn’t take long for things to get interesting as Jason encountered some early on track contact. The GB Racing team endured multiple trips down pit road for necessary repairs but remained on the lead lap and with some creative pit strategy was towards the front of the field late in the race. In the end, Jason came home with a battered No. 23 GunBroker.com Ford and a hard fought 12th-place finish.
“That was a bizarre and crazy race out there tonight,” stated White. “We battled a lot of elements tonight and I think we had damage on all four corners of our truck at the end of the night. Once we received so much damage our GunBroker.com Ford just didn’t handle like it needed to, so we just fought hard for all we could get and come home with a solid finish.”
The hard fought finish moves White up one position to ninth position in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series drivers’ standings – 44 points out of the eighth position.
“We didn’t have the handle on our truck early in the weekend, but we made the necessary adjustments and right there before we received the damage we were pretty good,” added Jason. All of us on the GunBroker.com team fought hard as a group and once again came home with a solid finish. This team has done this all year and we will continue to battle throughout the end of the season.”
Jason and his GunBroker.com team return to action on Friday September 21st as the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series makes it second visit to Kentucky Speedway for the running of the Kentucky 201.
