Bodine Was Fast in Nashville
Mooresville, NC (04-25-2011) – The return to Nashville Superspeedway for the No. 30 Germain.com Tundra team and driver Todd Bodine was bittersweet. The race chassis TRD-131 that was so dominant in last year’s Nashville victory was again an incredibly fast race truck. Bodine led the race for only two laps, which doesn’t tell the story of how much better his Toyota was than eventual race winner Kyle Busch.
“We qualified seventh. Todd worked through traffic and drove up to the bumper of the 18 after making up over three seconds on the race track under the green flag. There was nothing on that track faster than our Germain.com Tundra and I’m very proud of what that means to all of our guys on this team and at Germain Racing,” said crew chief Mike Hillman Jr.
Bodine started seventh, was third within ten laps and second for much of the first 60 laps of the race. A mishap on pit road caused damage to the nose of the No. 30 Tundra, forcing several extra visits to pit road and an end result of a 19th-place finish.
After five of 25 races in 2011, Bodine ranks seventh in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series standings. The next race is May 13th at Dover International Speedway.
