That's a Torx head; very common on vehicles. Should be able to get them at any auto parts place; not sure if I've ever seen them at HD/Lowe's.

Thread looks like a sheetmetal/wood type pitch rather than a machine screw, so really you can probably replace it with a large sheetmetal screw of the right length.
