SR2 Motorsports team announced that Camping World Truck Series regular Jason White will drive for the team part-time at the Nationwide level.
The number of races in which White will drive an SR2 Nationwide car is unknown, but the team has announced that he will race in the season-opening DRIVE4COPD at Daytona International Speedway on February 23.
“I’m excited to be with SR2 Motorsports. The commitment they’ve shown to improve and build upon is impressive. They exceeded expectations in their first season and we look forward to raising the bar this season. There’s lots of potential and promise as we head into 2013,” White said.
White has been racing full-time in the Camping World Truck Series since 2008, accumulating nine top-five race finishes and 21 top-10s. His best season in the Truck Series was 2010 when he finished 10th in championship points.
Before joining the Camping World Truck Series, White raced part-time in the Nationwide Series. He has 40-career Nationwide starts spanned over seven years, but none ending with a top-10 finish. His last Nationwide race came in 2007, when he made only one start.
SR2 plans to field three Toyotas in Nationwide Series competition, with Blake Koch already confirmed as full-time driver of the No. 24 car this season.
