November 21, 2011. Sun Peaks, British Columbia racer Jason White has been one of the most well liked participants since arriving in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series in 2008. ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s always a crowd looking for autographs from the #21 A & W Dodge driver during each race weekend. So itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s really not a huge surprise that Jason White to have been voted the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Most Popular Driver for 2011.
All summer race fans were encouraged to vote for their favourite driver in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series by logging onto the NASCAR Home Tracks website. Following the tabulation of the votes NASCAR informed the winners by tweeting congratulations to all of the Regional Series winners including Jason White, Most Popular Driver in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series.
This recognition is very special for Jason White and his #21 A & W Dodge team. Ã¢â‚¬Å“This is such an honour for meÃ¢â‚¬Â said White. Ã¢â‚¬Å“To have thousands of race fans take the time to cast their votes for me means a lot. Without all the race fans from coast to coast we wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be able to do thisÃ¢â‚¬Â added White.
This past year White went out of his way to get closer and more involved with the Canadian race fans. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I always try to spend as much time with people at the race track and sponsor appearances as I canÃ¢â‚¬Â explained White. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We made a real concerted effort this season to keep them updated on everything happening with the #21 A & W Dodge team through social media as well and we got some very positive feedback that the fans appreciated thatÃ¢â‚¬Â he stated.
Jason White will be presented with the Most Popular Driver Award for the 2011 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series as the NASCAR Night of Champions Touring Awards Gala taking place at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte on Saturday, December 10th. Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be very proud to be representing all the Canadian race fans that weekend in Charlotte and show how much enthusiasm there is for racing in Canada.
Race fans will be able to watch the Night of Champions Touring Awards gala as the event is streamed live on the NASCAR Home Tracks website.
