Todd Bodine


The younger brother of Geoff Bodine and Brett Bodine, both of whom were race drivers, Todd Bodine is a great stock car racer. He made his big debut at the Busch Series in 1986 where he finished 27th out of 30 due to an engine problem. At the time he was racing for Pistone Racing at Martinsville. From there he went on to suffer three years of misfortune, driving a number of races but not winning any of them. In 1990, things started to change for the better, and by the end of the year he had come 8th, 7th and even 3rd at various races around the country.

The following year proved to be even more successful. Not long after signing to drive for Frank Cicci, he won his first career race. That same year he also finished in the top ten as many as fifteen times and he won his first two poles. By the end of 1991 he was ranked seventh in points. In 1992, Todd Bodine began his career as a Cup racer at the age of 28 years old. His first Cup race took place at the Watkins Glen International Raceway where he finished 37th. New to the Cup race game, Todd had some catching up to do before he would again make it to the top. In 1994 he raced his first full-time season for RahMoc Enterprises. During that season he missed only one race and he finished in the top five twice and in the top ten seven times. By the end of the year he was ranked 20th. It was a brilliant year for him – one of his best overall.

In 2001 Todd Bodine went back into full time Cup racing when he raced the K-Mart Ford Taurus for Haas-Carter Motorsports. Despite a somewhat mediocre run, he did manage to win two of the first three races of the Busch Series later that year. Todd Bodine has since driven for a number of companies and organisations. His greatest accomplishment was when he won the 2006 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series championship.

By the end of 2009 Todd Bodine‘s stats included 21 top-ten finishes in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, 15 wins and 160 top-tens in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, and 17 wins with 81 top-ten finishes in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
