David Starr, RSS Racing and Massimo Motor Sports announced Thursday that Starr would be in the No. 93 Chevrolet for the rest of the NASCAR XFINITY Series season, beginning with the July 1st race at Daytona.
Starr, 48, will be racing in a NASCAR national touring series for the first time since being released from TriStar Motorsports after running the first seven XFINITY Series races in that team’s No. 44 Toyota. Starr holds four career Camping World Truck series victories and has finished in the top 10 in points seven times in that series.
Massimo Motor Sports, a UTV/ATV dealership located in Garland, Tex., will also be joining the team as the primary sponsor for at least Daytona.
RSS Racing currently fields two full-time XFINITY Series cars. The No. 39 has been run by owner-driver Ryan Sieg all season and currently holds the final spot on the XFINITY Series Chase Grid by virtue of being 12th in points.
The No.93 car has been ran by Scott Lagasse, Jr., Josh Reaume, Dylan Lupton and Josh Wise, primarily as a start-and-park effort due to lack of sponsorship. The team ran the full race at Daytona in February with Lagasse Jr. and finished 29th.
“I’m eager to get back in the race car and couldn’t be more excited to be partnering up with Massimo Motor Sports,” Starr said in the joint press release. “I’m a proud owner of a Massimo UTV and absolutely love it, it’s an awesome opportunity to get to work with them on and off the track.”
