David Starr Ready for Magical Night at Texas
David Starr and the SS Green Light Racing Team will carry the momentum of a second place finish at Talladega to Friday nights NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Winstar World Casino 350 at the Texas Motor Speedway. Chasco Constructors and Striping Technology will back David’s homecoming in the No. 81 Toyota Tundra.
“We’re going to bring the momentum from that second place finish at Talladega to Texas and try to get another great finish. With the Truck Series being so competitive, if we can get out of here with a top-ten it will feel like a victory for our small team,” Starr said. “I’m going to give 110% and the team will give 110% and hopefully when they drop the checkered flag our Chasco Constructors/Striping Technology No. 81 Toyota will be somewhere near the front.”
Now one of the elder statesmen of the NCWTS, this will be David’s thirty-first start at the track just miles from his home. He has seven top-fives over the last sixteen years with a best finish of third. “It’s always exciting to race at the Texas Motor Speedway, my home track,” Starr continued. “Racing at night, under the lights is just magical at the Texas Motor Speedway. The whole speedway is just beautiful when it’s lit up and it’s just a cool night of hard racing.”
In addition to Chasco Constructors and Striping Technology, BYF, Steely Lumber and Niece Equipment will have a presence on David’s Tundra Friday night. “We’re going to have a lot of our partners, sponsors and great fans at the race and I’m looking forward to them enjoying a great night of truck racing.”
“Seventy-five percent of the people who come to the races here in Texas drive up in pick-up trucks; the fans here in Texas love their pick-up trucks and they love truck racing. The Truck Series is so competitive; there are a lot of veterans mixed with a lot of young talent. There are twenty-two trucks that can win on any given weekend and the series is just exciting,” he continued. “Anytime these trucks race it’s a great race.”
It will be a busy week for Starr who will be and speaking to 985 juniors and seniors from the Dallas-Fort Worth area on Wednesday at the 3rd Annual Construction Career Day.

The racing has been so good at Texas over the years and it’s just magical to race there under the lights,” David concluded. “It’s my favorite race of the year.”
