DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., – Jason White put his No. 23 Ford on the pole for Friday night’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with a fast lap of 177.525 mph.
Starting alongside White and completing the all-Virginia front row will be NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Elliott Sadler, who will be making his Daytona debut in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
“We’ve been looking forward to this race because we thought we had a shot for this pole and to win the race,” said White who earned his first pole in 80 starts in the series.
When asked about being surrounded by some of the top teams in NASCAR to start the race, White responded, “It doesn’t matter to me, I’m the one that got the pole, so I’m pretty excited. We proved ourselves on the track. They’ll find out who Jason White is shortly.”
Rookie Austin Dillon, grandson of legendary NASCAR Sprint Cup Series owner Richard Childress, qualified his No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet in third position for his first race at Daytona International Speedway.
