Derek White To Tackle Kansas Truck Event

Team Release
April 26, 2010 - 3:55pm

KAHNAWAKE, Que. - This weekend, NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 driver Derek White and the DPW/OCR Gas Bar race team will put their preparations for the season opener at Delaware (Ont.) Speedway on hold as they travel to Kansas Speedway to participate in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event.

While this will be the first time the driver from Kahnawake, Quebec takes on the challenge of the 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway oval, White does have truck racing experience to draw upon.  Last season, in addition to his limited schedule of five NASCAR Canadian Tire Series races, White took the green flag for NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway and Phoenix (Ariz.) International Raceway and made impressive showings.

Not surprisingly White started deep in the field at both races, but once the competition began he moved up through the field finishing eight spots higher than he began at Martinsville and five places ahead at the Phoenix event.

As soon as competition is completed at Kansas, White and the DPW/OCR Gas Bar race team will be heading home to complete preparations for their first full season in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series including a test day at Delaware Speedway on May 18.
White will pilot the No. 96 Chevy Silverado in this week’s Kansas event scheduled for Sunday, May 2 and can be seen on SPEED beginning at 12:30 p.m. ET.  White and the No. 99 DPW/OCR Gas Bar Team will open the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series racing season on Saturday, June 5 at Delaware Speedway.  The team will compete in all thirteen series races this year. As in years past all NCATS races will also be seen on TSN with the complete broadcast schedule to be announced shortly.
