Tire Kingdom Backs Bodine's Daytona Triple

Tire Kingdom will serve as primary sponsor of Todd Bodine's quest to compete in all three of NASCAR's national racing series at Daytona International Speedway.

The 36-time NASCAR winner and two-time Camping World Truck Series champion will drive the #30 Tire Kingdom Toyota Tundra in the Feb. 18 Camping World Truck Series NextEra Energy Resources 250, the #15 Tire Kingdom Toyota Camry in the Feb. 19 Nationwide Series Drive4COPD 300 and the #60 Tire Kingdom Toyota Camry for the Feb. 20 Daytona 500. All three machines will also carry associate sponsorship from Valvoline, National Tire and Battery, Merchant's Tire and Auto Centers and Big O Tires.

Since 2005 -– Bodine's inaugural full-time season with Germain Racing -- he has never finished lower than fourth in the championship point standings. In addition to winning the series title last season, he also claimed the Truck Series crown in 2006. His Daytona truck record includes two wins, two second-place finishes, a third and a fifth for a finishing average of 2.3 in six career starts.

“I am very excited to have Tire Kingdom and Valvoline for all of my races at Daytona,” said Bodine. “It does not happen often that you get to represent one great company, let alone two in all three races in a weekend. Hopefully, with a little luck, we can run up front and get into Victory Lane.”
