Lottery winner starts truck team

Posted By Pete Pistone

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series veteran driver Jason White has hit the jackpot - literally.

Sirius NASCAR Radio's "Sirius Speedway" reports White will team up for the upcoming NCWTS season with the brand new Joe Denette Motorsports team. Denette is a lifelong race fan who won the $75.6 million Virginia State Lottery in May of 2009. Denette took the $47.8 million lump sum payment and has decided to invest a portion of it into a NASCAR race team.

White will bring long-time sponsor gunbroker.com along with him to the start-up team and after finishing tenth in the standings a year ago has high hopes for 2011.

The team will run its operation from the Tri-Star Motorsports Nationwide Series operation in Mooresville, North Carolina and there are plans to possibly field a second entry in selected races.
