  • This Week’s Tundra… The No. 5 International Trucks/Monaco RVs team and Germain Racing driver Todd Bodine will utilize TRD-092 in Friday’s 134-lap NCWTS race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.  Chassis TRD-092 is a freshly rebuilt truck from the Germain Racing stable, and Mike Hillman Jr. will once again be atop the pit box calling the shots for the defending series champion as this marks the 15th race of a collaborative effort between Germain Racing and Randy Moss Motorsports to field the No. 5 Tundra.  Bodine has finished no worse than 13th in those 14 previous races, with an average finish of 8.9.

 

  • Track Stats… Bodine is the only repeat winner at HMS in the series’ 15 races, leading all active drivers with two wins his seventh and 15th of 21 career Camping World Truck Series victories.  Bodine has also accrued the most points of any driver in the three previous truck series races at HMS (510 points).  In total, Bodine has four top-five and four top-10 finishes in six NCWTS starts at Homestead-Miami Speedway.  In addition to his Truck Series statistics, Bodine has 12 Nationwide Series starts and four Cup Series starts at HMS.

 

  • Closing the Gap… Bodine has not finished outside of the top four in the final truck series point standings since he began competing full-time in the series in 2005.  With his 12th-place finish last race at Texas Motor Speedway, Bodine maintained his sixth-place standing in the driver points and is 21 points behind fifth-place Timothy Peters and 31 points out of the top four entering the season finale at HMS.

 

  • Watch and Listen… The Ford 200 from Homestead-Miami Speedway will be broadcast live on SPEED, MRN Radio and Sirius-XM NASCAR Radio, channel 90, on Friday night.  SPEED kicks off its pre-race coverage at 7:30 p.m. EST, and MRN Radio will begin its live broadcast at 7:45 p.m. EST on Friday, November 18.  SPEED will also carry live broadcasts of final practice (11 a.m. EST) and qualifying (4:30 p.m. EST) on Friday.

 

Todd Bodine on Homestead-Miami Speedway:

“We plan to go to Homestead and do the best we can. We’re taking a newly rebuilt race truck and that shows we haven’t given up. We’re looking to get the best finish we can get with our International Trucks/Monaco RVs Tundra.”

 

“International has been a big supporter of our sport for a long time. To be able to represent them has been great. They’ve been awesome people to work with. I wish we could’ve gotten them a win by now but hopefully we can get it done this week at Homestead.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Crew Chief Mike Hillman Jr. on setting up the race truck for Homestead-Miami Speedway:

 “Setting up for Homestead, with so many available racing grooves, a lot of it is getting there and understanding which line your driver is most comfortable racing. From there, you have to make your truck handle right, and build in enough adjustments that you can adapt your truck throughout the race. We’re taking what’s really a fresh race truck to Homestead. The chassis is one we haven’t raced in a while, but we’ve done a big rebuild on it and we’re hoping it will be very fast as the International Trucks/Monaco RVs Tundra at Homestead.”
