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 NASCAR.com, 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.
