* This Week's Tundra... David Starr will wheel RMM-040 this weekend at Gateway International Raceway. RMM-040 has not been utilized for NCWTS competition during the 2010 season, but was used several times throughout 2009.

* Gateway Accomplishments... In 2004, Starr visited victory lane at Gateway International Raceway after leading just one lap, but luckily it was the lap that counted the most. The field underwent three green-white-checkered attempts, during which time Starr worked his way from fifth-place to the race lead. Starr executed a bump-and-run maneuver with less than one lap remaining to move into the lead and cross the finish line first. Throughout his career, Starr has competed in 10 races at Gateway International Raceway and is expected to turn his 2,000th mile at the track this weekend.

* O'Reilly Auto Parts Position Improvement Award... David Starr picked up 13 positions en route to his 10th-place finish at Iowa Speedway last weekend. Starr picked up more positions than any other driver in the 36-truck field and earned the O'Reilly Auto Parts Position Improvement Award for the 200-lap event at Iowa Speedway.

David Starr on competing at Gateway International Raceway

"Gateway [International Raceway] is a great place to race. You never know what is going to happen at that track, but it's always a lot of fun. Gateway [International Raceway] is one of the tracks where I have already visited victory lane, and I'm excited to try to get back there with the No. 81 Randy Moss Motorsports Toyota Tundra team. Our team has been able to consistently finish inside the top-ten even when we have a bad day. The guys back at the shop have been putting in a lot of time and hard work over the last few weeks, and I'm excited to go to the track with them each and every week."

Crew Chief Doug Wolcott on racing at Gateway International Raceway

"Having David Starr behind the wheel of the No. 81 Randy Moss Motorsports Toyota Tundra this weekend at Gateway International Raceway is going to be great. Gateway [International Raceway] is a track where David [Starr] has visited victory lane before and I'm confident that we can get him back to racing for the win. Our team has worked very hard lately to build our momentum leading into the summer months and I think you'll see some strong finishes from us over the next few weeks."
