TRUCK RACE TWIST - Defending race champion Bryan Reffner has entered the October 5 Silverado 350 for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, under most interesting circumstances. In the course of one year, Reffner and fellow Craftsman Truck Series driver David Starr have completed a swap of truck teams.

Reffner will pilot TKO Motorsports Dodge, to be sponsored by fiber optic company Ross Network Services, in the Silverado 350. This is the same truck driven last year to an outside front row starting position by Starr. Starr was second fastest to - you guessed it - Reffner who won the pole.

Starr will drive the Chasco Silverado for Team Menard in the Silverado 350. This truck ended up in victory lane in last fall's Texas truck event, driven by Reffner.

To carry this even further, Reffner started the season as a regular in the Menard Chevy, only to have the team drop off the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in late spring. Mike Starr, who operates the Team Texas Driving Experience driving school, became part owner in the truck prior to June's O'Reilly 400 at Texas. In that race, Starr finished third, behind the TKO Motorsports mount driven by Brendan Gaughan.

Reffner's return to Texas coincides with the closest point battle in the history of the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. The Silverado 350 will be critical in determining the season-long champion.

Tickets for the Silverado 350 on October 5 and the Chevy 500 on October 6 are available daily at the speedway ticket office, by calling (817) 215-8500, online at www.texasmotorspeedway.com and at Ticketmaster locations.
