Starr on Racing at his home track, Texas Motor Speedway:

"I'm really excited about Texas, but I have learned over the years that you can put too much emphasis on one particular race - and it really doesn't do you any good. You have to approach (going to my home track) like it is any other race in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. Every race is important, and you have to go into the race with that mindset. Texas is very special to me, but I'm not going to put any more emphasis on it than any other race just to get another heartbreak. But I would love to win that race.

"It takes so much to win a race at Texas. You have to have a perfect handling truck, the engine has to be strong, your pit crew has to be flawless over the wall, and the driver has to be on top of his game. That's what makes this sport so much of a team effort. This Red Horse Racing team is going to go to Texas with everything we have, so we might have a chance."

What Winning at Texas Would Mean to Starr:

"We've come close so, so many times at Texas. But that just shows you how tough it is in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. This Series has come so far, and it gets tougher every year - even every race. If you win a race in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, you have really done something. But I told someone the other day if God called and said he would grant me one wish, and my family was all happy and healthy, I would want that wish to be to win a race at Texas."

STARR ON HIS RED HORSE RACING TEAM:

"This Red Horse Racing Team has had a great season so far, and we have three races left. We're in the top six in points, and we are so close to breaking into that top five in points which is our goal. We'd like to get in Victory Lane again. We're just going to try to be consistent. We know we're not going to win the championship, but we want to be in the top five. We're not going to be points racing, though. If the opportunity is there, we're going to go for it - and if something happens, so be it. We want to be in the top five, but we are still trying to win races."

Notes:

Starr will be making his 163rd career start in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series this week at Texas.
