David Starr Pats Team on the Back and Talks about Halfway Point

* The Texas native will be making hiseighth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Kentucky Speedway this weekend.

* Starr will be racing the HT Chassis Number 15 on the 1.5-mile oval. This particular Toyota Tundra raced in California (fourth), Atlanta (17th), Dover (third), and Michigan (11th) earlier this year.

* Starr has two top-five and five top-10 finishes at Kentucky Speedway. His average finish is in the top 10 and he has finished on the lead lap in all of the races he has attempted there.

* In 125 Speedway starts, Starr has three wins, three poles, 28 top-five and 59 top-10 finishes. He has led 153 laps on this particular style of track.

* HT Motorsports Owner Jim Harris is the only owner in the NCWTS who has both teams sitting in the top 10 in points halfway through the season.

A Much Needed Break: "I hate taking a break from racing, but have to say I think that after a stint of several races in a row, it is much more productive for the teams to get a little time to breathe and refocus. Our team was on a roll and getting better and better each week. So the break gave us another opportunity to keep that streak alive by studying the things we simply didn't have time to look at when we were turning trucks around week after week in limited time. I feel like the break gave us a chance to get ahead and we will see better results because of it."

Halfway There: "It's hard to believe that this racing season is halfway over. It has flown by! I guess time really does fly when you are having fun. We are really having a great year so far at HT Motorsports. I feel very fortunate to be with the team and have really seen us come together in the last few races. Jason (Miller, Crew Chief) and I are really gelling and it has shown in our performances. I just cannot say enough about the whole team and how hard they are working. Man these trucks feel like they come alive during the race sometimes. That is a driver's dream."
