NASCAR Pinty’s Series Brandon White died Friday after a nearly three-year battle with cancer.
He was 46.
White debuted in the series in 2011 at Kawartha Speedway. Over five seasons, he made 17 appearances at a variety of tracks across Ontario and Quebec.

In 2017, despite being diagnosed with stage four rectal cancer, which had also spread to his liver, White still raced four times that season. After taking the 2018 season off to recover, the Kahnawake, Quebec, driver teamed up with Dumoulin Competition in 2019 to drive the No. 04 on the ovals as a satellite team.
The nine-race schedule would take White across Canada where he sported an “Early Detection is the Key” paint scheme to help spread awareness and tell his story.
White scored his best finish of eighth at Autodrome Chaudiere last season, in only his second race back behind the wheel.
Brandon, loving life…He showed us the importance of the present moment, how to live his passion no matter what the circumstances and to never give up. To always go further than what's possible… You will be missed at the track 🏁💫
