About TriStar Motorsports
TriStar Motorsports was established in 1989 by Mark and Kathy Smith. In its early years, the team competed in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series, where the team won the Coors Light Pole for the 1994 Daytona 500 with Loy Allen Jr. -- the first rookie in the history of NASCAR to set the pace for the historic race. After accumulating 151 starts in the Winston Cup Series, with three poles and nine top-10s, Smith withdrew from team ownership to focus on building engines for the NASCAR industry. Now, Smith's company -- Pro Motor Engines -- is the leading independent builder of race engines for all three of NASCAR's top-tier divisions and other series like ARCA and the SCCA. Smith was eager to return to team ownership and the opportunity came along in 2010 when he re-launched his TriStar Motorsports team and began fielding cars in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. In only three short years, TriStar Motorsports has accumulated 279 starts and closed out their 2012 campaign with driver Mike Bliss sitting eighth in the Championship Point Standings. Former driver Tayler Malsam closed out the year 15th and the team's sophomore driver, Eric McClure, finished a mere 50 points out of the top-15 in 16th position. The team plans to field four entries in 2013 with manufacturer support from Toyota.
