Starr on Racing at Kentucky Speedway:

"Kentucky Speedway is awesome. The groove is so smooth and wide, that you can put your truck anywhere on the race track. You can run high. You can run low. You can run side by side -- and it really makes for some exciting racing. The fans really get their money's worth when they come to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Kentucky Speedway. I'll bet they'll be on their feet all night watching some incredible racing. I've had some good finishes at Kentucky in the past, and I feel like I have been close to having the truck that it takes to win. I really would like to win there. Last year, I finished 10th and the Red Horse Racing team finished in sixth-place. So, I know that we have a pretty good grasp of what we need to do at Kentucky Speedway heading in there. Hopefully, this is the year for me and my Red Horse Racing Toyota team."

Starr On His Red Horse Racing Team:

"I have to hand it to my Red Horse Racing pit crew -- they have been on top of their game the past few weeks. That's what it takes to win races and a championship in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. I haven't had some of my best qualifying efforts recently, so we have really had to work as a team to make up ground on both the race track and on pit road. I've been working to pass as many trucks as I can on the track, and my pit crew has not let me down on pit road. Every time I come down pit road, they are getting me out several positions ahead of where I came in. It takes that kind of work in the pits to come out ahead in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. Their work has helped us to get some solid Top 10 finishes and to keep this Red Horse Racing Toyota in the Top 10 in points, which is where we belong."

Notes:

* Starr will be making his 153rd career start in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series this week at Kentucky.

* Starr has four career victories (Las Vegas -- 2002, St. Louis and Phoenix -- 2004, Martinsville -- 2006).
