Nick White was part of the winning Golden Kannonball Team on Kannonball 2016! WB Racing in the house!
What is your team name and number this year?
White Rice / WB Racing, um my number might be 21...
How many Kannonball/Falls have you done?
Yes, ps are we leaving out cactusballs? I think my 370Z has the distinction as the only car to have done every rally our fearless leader has put on. #CactusBallsNeedLoveTo
What made you want to sign up for Kannonball?
My brother and I were looking for automotive hobbies. We were doing autocross and gettting board with that and saw the first Kannonball being repped at cars and coffee. Seemed like a good idea at the time and we've been suckered in ever since
You only have $5000, what car do you buy and why?
Tires for my current car... I'm not mechanically inclined enough to even lie to myself that I could keep a $5000 car running.
You have $50,000 what car do you buy and why?
Can I have another 0? Maybe.... Sad day. At 50K I think I would pick up a used Jag F-Type S. Those are super pretty cars and have some solid performance to back up their looks.
What is your favorite thing about your car?
Definitely my favorite thing about my car is that you don't ever see other NISMO's driving around. I think its super fun to have something that no one else does, especially since they are not rare due to price. Its easy to have a rare car when you dropped 500K on it...
What does dream road trip look like?
This isn't particularly realistic but it would be super cool. Fly into the UK to take delivery of a brand new DB11. Bomb around the back country of Scotland for a few days then meander my way through Europe to Monaco for the F1 Race there. Seeing that live is a dream / bucket list item. Seeing it live after I've been screaming around in a DB11 is getting closer to a wet dream.
Tell us your favorite memory from previous Kannonballs/falls?
I think my favorite Kannonball memory is the very first one. We were the second car to leave Cars and Coffee. Ted and I are sitting there with no idea what to expect and just amped about the whole thing. There is an black Audi RS4 in front of us that absolutely guns it as soon as we turn onto Lyman Blvd towards 212. We hear his car screaming as he goes up the hill I have Ted navigating telling me not to go nuts cause you know the cops are out here. Sure enough as soon as the RS4 crest the first hill there is a couple of state troopers with a gun. They instantly flagged the RS4. I consider us lucky they let us go even though we were only doing 50. Then to top it all off the RS4 catches us and passes us at like 130 about 40 minutes later on 212. We were both just like damn. That dude is living the dream. #RallyLife
