Starr on Racing at Dover International Speedway:

"In my opinion, Dover really owes me this time around. I've finished fourth, third and had two more eighth-place finishes. Last year, we won the pole, and I think we had the truck to beat. We were running in fourth place early in the race, and we got involved in a little scuffle on the track. It knocked the crush panels out, and I ended up inhaling some fumes and getting a touch of carbon monoxide poisoning. It wasn't how I envisioned the day going to say the least. But the team didn't give up on me, and I didn't give up on them. We ended up finishing eighth, which was pretty good considering everything that happened to us. But Dover owes me, and I want to capitalize on that this weekend."

Career at Dover International Speedway:

Starr has four career NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series starts at Dover International Speedway, and his stats are only lacking one thing -- a win. He captured the pole at Dover in 2005. Starr also has four top 10 finishes in four starts.

Starr On His 2006 Season To Date:

"I know I sound like a broken record, but I can't say enough about this Red Horse Racing Team and crew chief Jamie Jones. I am so proud of all that we have been able to accomplish in such a short amount of time. I came into this deal this year, and I had to get used to a new team and a new manufacturer. The team has been really patient with me, and I am definitely still learning each and every week. Despite those obstacles, we have been able to go out there each week and contend for a top-10 finish or even the win. It's so awesome to be involved with a team of this caliber. We're sitting fourth in points right now, and we're coming up on some of my favorite race tracks -- including Dover. We are definitely a championship caliber team, and I think the sky is the limit."
