Texas Motor Speedway is Big Opportunity for Big Red Tundra, Bodine

  

 - Bodine, with two championships, is the reigning Truck Series champ

 - The Chemung, NY, native has 36 NASCAR victories, 21 in Trucks

Mooresville, N.C. (Nov. 3, 2011) - The Big Red Tundra has taken to the track twice this season, once with Germain Racing driver Brendan Gaughan behind the wheel at Texas Motor Speedway in June, and in July with Germain Racing driver Todd Bodine steering the No. 5 Big Red/International Trucks Tundra for Randy Moss Motorsports at Indianapolis Raceway Park. This weekend, Texas fans are in for another Big Red weekend as Bodine will race the Big Red Tundra on Friday night. Bodine has amassed six wins at Texas Motor Speedway as part of Germain Racing’s win count of seven at the Fort Worth track.

“We always feel like we can go win at Texas any time we race there,” said Bodine, whose first two Texas wins came in Fall races and the last four have been scored in June. “Big Red is based out of Texas, a win for them would obviously be, well, big!”

Bodine has raced at Texas Motor Speedway in 14 Truck Series events. He’s scored 6 wins, 10 top-five finishes, 10 top-ten finishes and one pole award. His average starting position is 10.5 and his average finish is 8.1. He has two DNFs, one this past June and one in June of 2005.

Watch Bodine in the No. 5 Big Red Tundra on SPEED on Friday, November 4th. Live race coverage begins with the NCWTS Setup at 7:30 PM Eastern followed by live racing at 8:00 PM. Not in front of a TV?
