|Major milestone for David Starr|
The driver of the #81 Zachry Toyota has done it all in his 15 full seasons of Truck Series competition, but the Texas native admits that this weekend’s milestone is special.
"This is a significant accomplishment," said Starr. "I'm proud of what I do and I can't believe I've reached 300 starts. There have been times in my career that I wasn’t sure what the plan was for the weekend, but through the help of a lot of people and sponsors, I've made it here.
“Ever since I was three years old going to the races with my dad, I wanted to accomplish the dream I'm living today. I'm proud to be a part of the sport of NASCAR. I'm also thankful for all of the team owners and team members who have helped me achieve this milestone. I have a lot more racing left in me, and I wouldn't mind being at the top of the all-time career starts list."
In his 299 starts to this point, Starr has victories at four different tracks; Las Vegas, Martinsville, Gateway and Phoenix. He has accumulated 47 Top-5 and 115 Top-10 finishes in that 15-year career, completing a total of 45,801 laps, good for 52,147 miles. When the green flag falls Saturday, Starr will rank fifth on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series’ all-time career starts list.
Starr says he hopes to accomplish much more in the seasons to come, including another win.
And then, a few more.
