JD Motorsports with Gary Keller (JDM) welcomes veteran driver David Starr to the team for the upcoming NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) race season.
Starr makes the move from Jimmy Means Racing where he finished 22nd in the drivers’ points standings at the end of last year. The veteran brings a wealth of experience to the team, and expects to start his 15th season in NXS competition with a bang down in Daytona.
David will pilot the newly renumbered No. 6 Chevrolet for the first time in the team’s history after it was announced that there would be a change from the iconic No. 01 that was with the team since the mid 2000’s.
It’s a new year, a new number, and a new driver all in one, and the team expects to make 2020 one of their best seasons yet.
The Texan believes he has a great shot at proving what he is capable of accomplishing on the racetrack, saying this before the season opener: “First of all, I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to drive for JD Motorsports with Gary Keller. In the last two or three years, I have noticed their vast improvements as a race team on the competition side of things, and now that I will be joining forces with them, I hope to help a strong team become even stronger. I want to help grow their program and bring them long run success, and we have all the right pieces together to make it happen. We have a lot of great partners that will be featured on our No. 6 Chevrolet throughout the year, and I look forward to representing them to the best of my abilities. See you in Daytona!”
With most of the JDM driver lineup already set in place, expect some more announcements to make their way to the newsroom shortly.
The NASCAR Xfinity Series season kicks off from Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, February 15th. Live coverage of the NASCAR Racing Experience 300 can be found on FOX Sports 1.
