1 Comment

Part-time NASCAR driver Jason White has been eliminated from the World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas, but not before beating out some of the best players in all of poker.

White will finish 348th out of more than 6,000 competitors in the tournament, which has a $10 million prize for the winner and continues through Monday in Sin City. For his work, White has earned a prize payout of $33,734.

According to, White’s run at the WSOP ended late last night when his pair of jacks lost out to a pair of sixes from his opponent; White had a good chance of winning prior to the community cards being dealt but one of those community cards was a six, giving his opponent the better hand.

Andrew Feldman of ESPN reports that White uttered ‘I’ll be back’ upon being eliminated.

White has run three NASCAR national series events this season, and competed full-time from 2008-2012 in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

The Verizon IndyCar Series took to Barber Motorsports Park on Tuesday for an open test, with 24 entries tackling the 2.38-mile road course.

Weather intervened in the afternoon, preventing nearly the entire field from going out, but the weather held off during the morning enough for one session to be run in its entirety.

Team Penske’s Josef Newgarden led the way, with a quick lap of 1:07.979, ahead of Team Penske teammates Will Power and Helio Castroneves. For Castroneves, this marked his first IndyCar outing of 2018.

Sporting the Pennzoil “yellow submarine” paint scheme, Castroneves turned 41 laps around Barber in the morning session, with a quick lap of 1:08.315. He was also the only driver to venture out on track in the afternoon, completing eight laps.

The Dale Coyne Racing duo of Sebastien Bourdais and Zachary Claman De Melo completed the top five.
