My name is Tucker White. I'm currently majoring in journalism at the University of Tennessee. I started getting into NASCAR around 1998 and started following the sport full-time in 2001. I live and breathe everything related to NASCAR. I also have a burning passion for all things auto racing. I've been following Formula 1 since 2011 and am slowing getting into IndyCar. I do my best to keep up with the World Endurance Championship. But at the end of the day, NASCAR is my primary beat. Being both a native of Knoxville, Tennessee and a student at UT, I'm naturally a die-hard Tennessee Volunteers fan. Especially when it comes to Tennessee Volunteers football. While I'll never stop being one, it can be the most heart-wrenching thing ever. Since 2005, this team has delivered more than its fair share of heartbreaking moments and inhuman frustration. I've stuck with the Vols from the best of times - 1998 National Champions - to the worst of times - 2005 to present - because I know that it'll make it all so worth it when the mighty Vols finally return to the top of the college football landscape. In the last few years, I started to really get into baseball. This past season, I decided to pledge my sporting allegiance to the Atlanta Braves. It didn't turn out too well as they finished 67-95 and finished fourth in the NL East. I do see great potential with the young roster and they might be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years.

The White Zone: Thoughts on Texas

Hamilton steals victory in Bahrain

Lewis Hamilton wasn't the dominant driver, Sunday, and he probably wouldn't have won without misfortune befalling Charles Leclerc. But as the old saying goes, "It doesn't matter how you won. It just matters that you did."

The White Zone: Thoughts on 2020 schedule

On Tuesday, NASCAR announced the 2020 schedule for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. It's the biggest schedule realignment in over a decade. After sleeping on it overnight, I have some thoughts on the matter.

Blaney earns podium finish in strong run at Phoenix

As the laps ticked away, it seemed two tires would be enough to win the day at Phoenix. Then Kyle Busch was added to the equation.

Truex frustrated with lapped cars after runner-up finish

As Brad Keselowski climbed out of his car, with an American flag in hand, Martin Truex Jr. stood adjacent to his car a few hundred yards away, with arms crossed. The source of his frustration was lap traffic.
