David Starr is a real hands-on type of driver

* The Houston, Texas native will be making his 10th NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend. He has scored one top-five and one top-10 finish in those trucks starts in 2005.

* Starr has completed 89.6 percent of all the laps he has attempted on the 1.54-mile oval.

* Starr will be racing Toyota Tundra truck No. HT-15. This particular chassis raced two weeks ago in California and last season at Nashville Superspeedway, where it ran third for a lot of the race.

David Starr:

David the Designer: "I am a real hands-on type of person at all aspects of my racing. This week I gave my input on a t-shirt design that Zachry created for their employees. It is important to me that all the things out there with my name, or likeness, or the team's name on it have a good look. And I like that side of racing too. We are fortunate that we have a sponsor who is behind HT Motorsports and willing to go above and beyond the ordinary sponsorship to help promote our team and myself. I just want to make sure it all looks the best it can for that."

On Racing In Atlanta: "We are jazzed up coming off a fourth-place finish at a speedway track. When you have finishes that are strong like that, it always bleeds over into the next weekend's race. Atlanta and California are so similar and both of them have a lot of grooves. This team really worked hard to have the right pit strategy and find the right combination on the race track last weekend. They did a great pit stop right when it mattered the most and I know we can play off of that again. I am glad that we are finding our groove so early in the season because I know it will continue to show in our finishes."
