Kansas City, KS(6-5-11)-The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series headed west for the 400th series start at Kansas Speedway on Saturday, June 4. Jason White, one of only four drivers that competed in the inaugural race in 2001 at Kansas Speedway, started the eighth event on the 2011 schedule in the 13th position, but battled handling issues on his GunBroker.com Chevrolet for most of the 167-lap event to finish 17th in the O’Reilly Auto Parts 250.
Quotes: “It was a disappointing finish for us today. My GunBroker.com Chevrolet was just loose all day and we never got it dialed-in. I got some lucky breaks throughout the day with cautions and pit strategy but when we got up front, I just didn’t have the truck to stay up there. Unfortunately, we hurt our momentum in the points today, but don’t count us out just yet.”
