* This Week's Tundra... The No. 81 Toyota Tundra team and driver David Starr will race chassis MDM-107 during Saturday's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway. MDM-107 last hit the track at Phoenix International Raceway in November 2009 where the team finished 17th. Prior to that, MDM-107 qualified tenth at Martinsville Speedway in October 2009.

* Proven Success at Martinsville Speedway... David Starr's last win in NCWTS competition came at Martinsville Speedway on April 1, 2006. Starr utilized pit strategy to take over the lead on Lap 130 and stayed there for the remainder of the race. After lurking near the front of the pack the entire race and leading the most laps, Starr clearly had the truck to beat and took the win with a 0.942 second margin.

* Come meet David! Fans attending the NCWTS Autograph Session at Martinsville Speedway will have the chance to meet David Starr and his teammate Mike Skinner on Friday, March 26. The autograph session will take place from 6:15 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. EST in the Fan Exhibition area near the Turn 4 pedestrian tunnel.

David Starr on driving at Martinsville Speedway

"Martinsville [Speedway] is such a great short-track. The track's unique configuration and banking always produces great racing, and I can't wait to get things started. The No. 81 Toyota Tundra hasn't had the results this season to reflect the hard work of the team at Randy Moss Motorsports, and we're hoping to turn that around this weekend. Martinsville is a track that I have been successful on in the past, and I have completed nearly all of the laps in the 17 races that I have competed in at Martinsville [Speedway]. I'm confident that having [crew chiefs] Doug Wolcott and Gene Nead and Mike Skinner as a teammate will do nothing but improve my performance around the tough half-mile speedway."

Crew Chief Doug Wolcott on racing at Martinsville Speedway

"I'm very excited to be returning to Martinsville Speedway with David [Starr] behind the wheel of the No. 81 Toyota Tundra. David has won at the track before and we feel like we have a truck that is up to the challenge of the grueling 0.526-mile speedway. After our test at New Smyrna [Speedway] a few months ago and our test at Motor Mile [Speedway] just two weeks ago, David and I believe that we have our Toyota Tundra set up to where we need it and I'm confident that we will be challenging for the win."
