When the field takes the green flag Saturday night for the Coke Zero 400, it will mark Bobby Labonte's 600th start in the Sprint Cup Series. After spending the first part of the season with TRG Motorsports and racing for Robby Gordon last weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Labonte will be behind the wheel of the No. 09 entry of Phoenix Racing for the milestone start.
"Having 600 starts, wow, that is a lot of racing," Labonte said. "It is just an honor and a privilege to be able to have that many races under my belt."
