– MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (May 11, 2014) – Trey Starks has spent the last seven weeks competing with the famed Pennsylvania Posse.




His time in “The Keystone State” comes to a head this week as the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series invades the region for a trio of races.

“It will be important to be at your best,” Starks said. “If everything is working right, I think we can have a really good performance. First things first, hopefully everything works and runs.”




Starks battled with mechanical issues for the second straight weekend last Friday at Williams Grove Speedway.




“We had continued troubles,” he said. “I think it’s kind of a result of that u-joint breaking the week before. We had some electrical issues. It was stuff that wasn’t on the surface so it wasn’t really obvious.”




Starks qualified 21st and was unable to advance into a lock-in position during his heat race on the fast half-mile track. He then finished where he started – fourth – in the B Main to transfer to the main event.




“We gained a lot of positions on the start and were up to like 13th and then the motor started to act funny,” he said. “I just rode around for the last 10 laps.”




Starks ended with a 19th-place result.




The team made some changes prior to Saturday’s race at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa., where rain dampened the track after the drivers put heat in the engines. The race was eventually rained out.




“We think we got it figured out,” Starks said. “We hope so.”




With the premier sprint car series stopping in Pennsylvania this week, Starks will make his season debut at Lincoln Speedway this Wednesday for the Gettysburg Clash before competing on Friday and Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway for the Morgan Cup.




“I’m just hoping that our time out here pays off,” he said. “We haven’t run at Lincoln at all this year. I had a good time there last year.”




Starks has recorded two top 10s in three races at Williams Grove Speedway this season.




Following the busy week, Starks said his team will return home to Washington to compete on the West Coast for a while.
