On Tuesday NTS Motorsports Vice President of Operations Dwayne Gaulding announced that the team has signed veteran NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Jason White to a run a part-time schedule for the remainder of the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season. White's first race will be this Saturday's Pocono Mountains 150 at Pocono Raceway and he will pilot the No. 9 Chevrolet.
White's truck will have sponsorship from Autism Speaks. The rest of his schedule will be announced at a later date. He is best known for driving the No. 23 GunBroker.com truck from 2009 to 2012. Dwayne Gaulding was his owner in 2009 and Joe Denette who is the current owner of the No. 9 truck was White's owner in 2011.
Hailing from Richmond, Virginia White is now 35-years-old. He made his first NASCAR national series start as a 20-year-old in what was then a NASCAR Busch Series race back in 1999. His first Truck Series race was in 2001 and White made his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut in 2011 for FAS Lane Racing and finished 33rd at Pocono Raceway. His only other Cup start came in 2012 when he finished 31st at Pocono again driving for FAS Lane Racing.
To open the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season White drove RSS Racing's No. 93 Chevrolet at Daytona but finished 36th after having an engine issue after 45 laps. He was entered in the second race of the season in the same truck but the team ended up withdrawing the entry at Martinsville and White has not raced since in the Truck Series.
White has made 153 career Truck Series starts and has scored 21 top 10's. He raced five consecutive full seasons from 2008 through 2012 with his best season being 2010 when he finished tenth in the points and had seven top 10's.
