When the preliminary entry list for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Cook Out 400 at Martinsville Speedway dropped on Monday, the No. 66 Power Source (MBM Motorsports) team had its driver listed as TBA. Late Tuesday night, MBM Motorsports confirmed veteran racer David Starr as the pilot of the car for this weekend’s race.

The team revealed the news via a post on its X account.

Sunday’s Cook Out 400 at Martinsville Speedway will mark Starr’s first NASCAR Cup Series start since the 2021 season, when he made seven starts in NASCAR’s premier series. Starr, 57, has a career-best finish of 23rd, which came during that 2021 season at Texas Motor Speedway with MBM Motorsports.

MBM Motorsports, which has rebranded its NASCAR Cup Series program as Power Source, made its first NASCAR Cup Series start since the 2022 season at Circuit of the Americas a couple of races ago. Timmy Hill piloted the No. 66 Ford Mustang in that event. Hill started 37th and finished 36th in the 39-car field.

Outside of the NASCAR Cup Series, where he has made 17 career starts, Starr has 258 NASCAR Xfinity Series starts. The Texas native has recorded one top-five and three top-10 finishes in NASCAR Xfinity Series competition.

The driver has enjoyed the most success in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. In that division, Starr is a four-time race winner, and he has amassed 48 top-five finishes, and 117 top-10s in 317 career starts. Starr finished a career-best fourth in the 2006 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series championship standings.
