Randy Moss Motorsports Hits “300” Milestone In Nashville

Randy Moss Motorsports will achieve a significant milestone April 22 at Nashville Superspeedway, becoming just the fourth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series organization to field at least one truck in 300 consecutive races.

Known previously as Dollar Motorsports, the team has competed in 15 of the series’ 16 seasons. Its No. 5 Toyota is driven by 2003 champion Travis Kvapil.

“I feel very fortunate to be able to reach this milestone in my career as a team owner,” said team founder and co-owner David Dollar. “As a young racer competing on dirt tracks back in Oklahoma, I always heard about Richard Childress and Rick Hendrick, and now here we are competing against their drivers and equipment every week.”

Randy Moss, the National Football League wide receiver, became a team principal in mid-2008. “I can sleep every night knowing David really cares about the sport, making it better and educating me; that has made the transition a lot smoother,” said Moss.

Kvapil, one of more than 30 to drive for the organization, said, “I’ve been racing in the (series) on-and-off for the last 10 years, and have had some intense battles with drivers from Randy Moss Motorsports. David and Randy have always put in a lot of time to make this team one of the strongest in the [NASCAR Camping World] Truck Series garage.”
