FONTANA, Calif. (Friday, October 27, 2000) -- In an all-out attempt at winning the pole, David Starr smacked the turn four wall in qualifying for Saturday's Motorola 200 at California Speedway. The result was Starr placing the No. 41 Case Construction Equipment Dodge in the 19th position. While that is not the ideal starting spot, the team knows it has a fast truck and should be able to make its way to the front fairly quickly in the race. "We really had a shot at the pole," said crew chief Todd Myers. "The truck was fast in Thursday's practice and we had a good lap going. Halfway into the qualifying lap, someone had us timed two-tenths of a second quicker than Kurt Busch (who won the pole) so it looked good. Joey Arrington has built us a real strong motor, and our aero package seems to work real well on these big tracks so we'll just get to the race and get up front. "The one positive out of this incident is that it just proved that the TKO Motorsports crew is one of the best in the business. We got the truck back together really quickly and even got in a few laps in happy hour practice. These guys build great trucks and give the driver fast pit stops every week, so we're optimistic about Saturday's race."
