Paperclip Awaits David Starr
Several weeks away from the track have given David Starr and the SS Green Light Racing team time to prepare for the final five races of the 2010 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule. The team has been busy working on the No. 81 Toyota Tundra's in preparation for the five-race stretch run that begins Saturday at the Martinsville Speedway.
"We've been busy the last couple weeks, I've been working with some of the great folks at Zachry and the team has tested at a couple of short tracks. I think we have grown a lot as a team," David continued. "Its just a matter of time before we put it all together."
Following the layoff, Crew Chief Jason Miller and the SS Green Light team are excited to get back to racing. "We had a couple of good tests, we learned some things that worked and some things that didn't work, David and I have had success at Martinsville in the past, so I'm looking forward to going back there with him again."
Martinsville is special to the Texas native as it is the site of his last NCWTS victory back in the spring of 2006, one of his four career victories. Current Crew Chief Miller was Starr's Truck Chief when David won his last race.
With Miller on the pit-box last fall the David in the Zachry No. 81 was very strong at the flat paper-clip shaped half-mile track. "We ran in the top-five for the first half of the race," Starr said. "Then we got behind on a pit stop, but we were good enough to fight back to eighth. We had a very good truck."
Starr has eighteen career NCWTS starts at the Martinsville Speedway with one victory, three top-five finishes and eight top-ten finishes. David's average start is 17.6 and his average finish is 14.2.
"I'm really looking forward to this weekends race," Starr added. "I believe we can put the Zachry Toyota up front."
The Kroger 200 is the 241st consecutive NCWTS start for the SS Green Light Racing team and the 261st career start for Starr in the Truck series.
