David Starr and the SS Green Light Racing team will return to the track after a much-deserved weekend off. The team has been working hard since Starr joined the team three weeks ago to prepare for the remainder of the 2010 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule.
The Texas native is excited as the TheRaceDayRaffleSeries.com 175 at New Hampshire will mark the first race together for the SS Green Light team with Starr’s longstanding sponsor Zachry and the No. 81 Toyota will sport the colorful Zachry black and green paint scheme.
“It’s really cool to have Zachry on the No. 81 truck this week, we are all excited about building our relationship together,” Starr said. “Zachry is a great company with thousands of hard working people and I believe the values of Ken Smith and Bobby Dotter are right in line with the way that Zachry approaches their business. I think this is a great fit. I’m excited to have Zachry on the truck and I’m looking forward to seeing all the Zachry employees and customers at New Hampshire this weekend.”
David is also happy to be re-united with Crew Chief Jason Miller at SS Green Light Racing. “Jason and I had a great year together last year. We had a lot of very good runs. We had a little mechanical issue last week that didn’t give us the finish we wanted but we have this week to redeem ourselves and get a good finish. I’m looking forward to the future with Jason and the SS Green Light Racing team.”
Starr has nine career NCWTS starts at New Hampshire Motor Speedway with two top-five finishes and five top-ten finishes. His best finish at New Hampshire is third in 2002; he also finished fifth in 2006. He has completed 1804 out of a possible 1,809 competition laps. David’s average start is 12.9 and his average finish is 10.1.
“I love racing at New Hampshire; the long straights and flat corners make for a very challenging day. The trucks put on a heck of a show for the fans. I love it because it a real drivers track and if you can get the truck to rotate through the center of the corner, you can have a really good day. It’s just a great place to race.”
