Jason White, a native of Sun Peaks, British Columbia, is set to return to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series for the season-opening Fresh from Florida 250 at Daytona, where he’ll once again partner up with Reaume Brothers Racing.
A recurring competitor at the superspeedways in the NASCAR Truck Series, White will get behind the wheel of the No. 22 Ford F-150 for the 100-lap contest in Daytona Beach, Florida, marking his 11th start in the series for the Josh Reaume-led team.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back to Daytona,” said White. “After leading a bunch of laps last year in the ARCA race, I now know it’s possible to get up front and be a contender, it will be all about patience for the first 2/3 of the race, then we will unleash the horse and hopefully ride to the front!”
The 50-year-old racer will serve as a teammate to both Keith McGee (No. 27) and Lawless Alan (No. 33), as Reaume Brothers Racing brings a three-truck effort to the opening race of the 23-race campaign that the NASCAR Truck Series will contest in 2024.
“RBR has put together a really sporty Ford Performance F-150 and I can’t thank Josh and the team enough for having the confidence in me to go and try and get the team its first win,” added the superspeedway veteran from British Columbia. “I can’t wait to get behind the wheel on Thursday.”
Since making his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut in 2018 at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (CTMP), White has been a sporadic part-timer for RBR, contesting no more than three events in a single season, the majority of which have come at Daytona or Talladega.
“We have worked very hard on our superspeedway program to advance it into a competitive level, and we believe this is our best shot at success,” said Josh Reaume, owner of Reaume Brothers Racing. “Jason White has shown his expertise in the draft for many years now, and we are excited to give him arguably his best shot to take the checkered flag this week.”
Last year, White was a part of history becoming the first pair of drivers – alongside Jason White (USA) – to compete in a NASCAR National Series event together despite having the same name. White managed to finish 21st on the lead-lap in the season-opener last year, driving the No. 34 for RBR.
