DAVID STARR TO RECEIVE SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD FROM TEXAS MOTOR SPORTS HALL OF FAME

Dallas...Joining the ranks of some of the greatest names in motorsports, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series driver David Starr has been chosen to receive this year's Texas Motor Sports Hall of Fame Sportsmanship Award.

"I am so very honored," says Starr, who drives the No. 11 Toyota Tundra for Red Horse Racing. "I never dreamed that I would be chosen to receive this highly coveted award. To have my name immortalized in the Texas Motor Sports Hall of Fame is incredibly prestigious and exciting and definitely something I will treasure for the rest of my life."

Awarded annually, Texas Motor Sports Hall of Fame inductees and award recipients are determined by a panel of motorsports media from throughout Texas, including representatives from print and broadcast outlets in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio. This year's inductees include Drag Racing legend Kenny Bernstein and Indy-car designer and team owner Jim Hall. Also honored are NASCAR team owner Jack Roush and former NHRA racer Raymond Beadle.

Starr, a native of the Lone Star State started running a limited schedule in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in 1998, moving into the Series on a full time basis in 2002. Voted Most Popular Driver of the Year in 2002, Starr is a tireless promoter of the truck series and one of the most liked drivers in NASCAR.

Starr, other award winners and inductees will be honored at the Texas Motor Sports Hall of Fame Gala on April 5 at the Texas Motor Speedway Club Ballroom. Proceeds from the event go to Happy Hill Farm in Granbury, an academy and home for disadvantaged children.
