A seasoned NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series driver, Jason Alan White, was arrested earlier this month in Huntersville, North Carolina on charges of driving while impaired, according to the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office.
White, 44, was detained on Aug. 3. A police report indicated the incident occurred on Kenton Drive, just off Sam Furr Road during the early evening hours.
Having started his journey in the Craftsman Truck Series in 2001, White has since made 157 career starts in NASCAR’s third-tier series, clocking more than 20,000 laps with an average finish of 19th. Throughout his career, White has secured a top-five finish nine times, though he has yet to clinch a win in the series. His only race in 2023 saw him at the wheel of the No. 1 truck for TRICON Garage during the Daytona event, where he finished 15th.
Earlier in his career, White competed in various events. His top finish was 13th at Martinsville. By 2002, he made two starts, and two more in 2003, neither of which he finished. After briefly shifting focus, White returned to truck racing in 2007 with different teams, including MB Motorsports and Pennington Motorsports.
In 2008, he raced with SS-Green Light Racing, and in 2009, he joined GunBroker Racing for a full season. During that year, White achieved a career-best third-place finish at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The 2010 season was particularly successful for him, as he grabbed three top fives and finished 10th in points overall.
White’s experience isn’t limited to the Craftsman Truck Series. He has also made 55 starts in the Xfinity Series and two starts in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. White debuted in the Sprint Cup Series in 2011 at Pocono Raceway, later returning for a subsequent race.
Further details about his arrest and its implications for his racing career are yet to emerge.
