NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Rookie of the Year Derek White is racing at Homestead
Kahnawake, Quebec. (November 15, 2010) The 2010 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series rookie of the year Derek White isn’t through with racing competition for this year. White has agreed to drive the #6 Deer Excavating Chevrolet entry fielded by Rick Ware Racing in the final round of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this Friday November 19th at Homestead Miami Speedway.
This will be the first Truck race of the season for White who raced in two events last year. “I had such a good time in both of the races last year that I didn’t want to let the season finish without racing in at least one Truck series event this year” said White.
At both races White participated in during the 2009 campaign he made significant gains during the race from his starting position. In his first ever Camping World Truck Series event at the challenging Martinsville Speedway White started the race 34th but had gained eight positions by the end of race for a 26th place showing. And at Phoenix International Raceway White gained five spots during the race and claimed a 24th place result.
This year White concentrated on running the competitive NASCAR Canadian Tire Series in Canada. In the first event of the year at Delaware Speedway near London, Ontario Derek White in the OCR Gaz Bar Chevrolet would serve notice that he was gunning for the Rookie of the Year title scoring an outstanding 7th place finish. Continuing with the momentum from that first race of the season White claimed the rookie title and finished 14th in the overall championship. “I’ve learned so much over the last year and the experience that I gained running in the Canadian Tire series and winning the rookie of the year title should be a huge help this weekend in the #6 Deer Excavating Chevy” stated White.
This weekend’s race at Homestead Miami Speedway is the site of some unfinished business for Derek White. “We came to Homestead last year but missed out on qualifying for the race” said the driver. “This year we’ve come back with better equipment and are better prepared. We want to use this race to show what we’re capable of and that will hopefully generate some more sponsor interest for February at Daytona” he added.
The final race of the 2010 NASCAR Camping World Truck series from Homestead Miami Speedway takes place Friday November 19th. Derek White will practice the #6 Deer Excavating Chevrolet Thursday at the Speedway. Qualifying is scheduled for 5PM on Friday and the 200 mile feature race will go green at 8PM that night. The race can be seen live on SPEED.
