David Starr To Drive for B.J. McLeod Motorsports at Daytona

Last minute entries for Daytona continue to file in as David Starr announced he will be piloting the No. 99 Chevy Camaro for B.J. McLeod Motorsports in the NASCAR XFINITY Series season opener this Saturday.

Striping Technology L.P., a Tyler, company that specializes in liquid striping application for roads and highways, pavement marking installation and removal, and other road maintenance services, will serve as the primary sponsor for the team.

“All of us at Striping Technology couldn’t be more proud to sponsor David and the #99 Team. He’s such a positive role model and representative for our company on and off the track,” said Striping Technology President Linda Rudd.

“It’s an honor to have our long-term partner and friend, Linda Rudd of Striping Technology, on the car to kick-off the 2017 NASCAR XFINITY season,” added Starr.

Though best known for his success in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with fours wins, 48 top-fives and 117 top-tens in 317 starts in the series, Starr isn’t precisely a newcomer to the XFINITY Series.

The 48-year-old made his debut in the series with Day Enterprises, piloting their No. 16 Pontiac at Talladega in 2000. Most recently, Starr competed full-time last season in the No. 44 Toyota Camry for Tri-Star Motorsports. He finished 16th in the standings and currently holds two top-tens in 97 races in his career in the series.

Starr will be just one of three drivers competing in a Chevy Camaro on behalf of B.J. McLeod Motorsports: the other two include Jeff Green in the No. 8 and Clint King in the No. 78.

The green flag for the XFINITY Series opener, the Powershares 300, will wave Saturday at 3:30 PM ET.
