DAVID STARR, No. 11 Pit-Now.com Toyota Tundra, Red Horse Racing
Finished: 2nd

Can you talk about the last lap?

"It was just good short-track racing.  He (Donny Lia) got a run underneath us, I guess.  I left a hole open, and he got into me in
the left-rear, as you can see.  It's all beat up back there.  It was just enough to break my momentum.  Once we broke the
momentum, we broke traction in the rear.  We just drove into turn three on a prayer.  He had the preferred line.  It was a great
race.  I just feel bad this Red Horse Racing team.  They did a heck of a job.  Jamie Jones (crew chief) did a heck of a job.  We
had a good truck the whole race, we just didn't finish it off.  Not a bad finish, but we're disappointed.  We thought we should've
won the race.  That's just good short-track action.  You just never know what's going to happen until the end."

What does this finish do for the team, despite not getting the win?

"We didn't pick up the win, but this truck was awesome. These guys are working hard to get our season turned around. Man, I'm just disappointed. I still wish we could back that up a couple of laps, but we can't. But, it was not a bad finish. We'll just keep digging from this point on."
