JEFFERSON, GA (June 28, 2011) – Although NASCAR Camping World Truck series has the weekend off, some drivers aren’t slowing down. Two of those drivers include SS Green Light Racing’s David Starr and John King, who spent a long day at Gresham Motorsports Park to prepare for their next race in Kentucky.
“This is a great track to test at and make the adjustments that we need to make because it is so consistent,” said Starr, driver of the No. 81 Toyota Tundra. “This is the nicest short track in the country by far.”
SS Green Light Racing is owned by Ken Smith and second generation driver, Bobby Dotter. The team’s formation came from Smith’s hobby in racing and a business marketing opportunity. Dotter began racing the age of 16 and quickly became a famous name in the Bucsh Series and the Craftsman Truck Series. Dotter is now a Co-Owner of SS Green light Racing.
John King of Kingsport, Tennessee joined Starr on the Track at GMP to make adjustments to the truck to prepare for Kentucky. King, driver of the No.16 Fairway Ford, is looking to finish the season strong in the Camping World Truck Series.
Both drivers and the crews worked all day to make the adjustments that they needed to make and to get as many laps in as they could.
We look forward to seeing both of the drivers back at GMP soon!
