Mooresville, NC (05-17-2010) – Driver Todd Bodine scored his second top-five finish at Dover International Speedway in Friday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race. Bodine started the race in 11th place and spent much of the 204 laps racing among the top-ten. The fifth-place finish kept Bodine second in Truck Series championship standings, just 27 points behind leader and Dover race winner, Aric Almirola.
“We fought handling issues all day. We kept making adjustments and making it easier to drive but not making the Germain.com Tundra faster. Right at the end of the race, coming for the green-white-checkered, I had a problem with vapor lock and lost three spots. For as much as we struggled today, we’ll take fifth,” said Bodine.
Crew chief Mike Hillman Jr. and the No. 30 Tundra team of Germain Racing detour to Pocono Raceway before heading to Friday’s race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
“We have a tire test with Goodyear at Pocono to test tire combinations for the first-ever Truck Series race at Pocono that’s coming up in July. Pocono is an exciting race track and it’s close to the New York roots that run deep on our race team,” said Hillman, who hails from Lockport, NY.
The No. 30 Germain.com Tundra ranks fourth in Truck Series owner’s standings and Bodine ranks second in the driver’s standings. The next race on the Truck Series schedule is Friday night, May 21st, at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
