Germain Racing will show up in Kansas sporting a look similar to what they debuted in Daytona on the No. 30 Tundra. The reigning NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion, Todd Bodine, will drive the No. 30 NTB/Service Central/Valvoline Tundra at Kansas Speedway, a track where he finished third last year, and, a track where he and his crew, led by Mike Hillman Jr., know how to win. After a tough weekend in front of the home crowd at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Bodine and Hillman are ready for some vindication in Kansas.
“We need to get back on track and Kansas is as good a place as any. Mile and a half tracks are our strong suit and we hope to prove that once again. The track has some wear on it and has continued to grow character. Drivers can move around the track into different grooves and make their trucks run faster. We are taking a brand new race truck for Germain Racing and the No. 30 NTB/Service Central/Valvoline Tundra should be great,” said Bodine.
Kansas Speedway is a much different track than Charlotte Motor Speedway. Bodine explains that the shape of the Kansas circuit means momentum and corner speed are the focus.
“Kansas is really wide and the field does spread out there. It drives more like a Michigan or California. There’s a lot more momentum than most mile and a half tracks. You have to keep the center of the corner speed up to get a good lap time and that’s been one of our strong points. Hopefully we can make it work to our advantage with our No. 30 NTB/Service Central/Valvoline Tundra this weekend,” said Bodine.
Bodine is strapping into racing chassis GR-019 for Saturday’s Kansas Speedway Truck Series race. He is currently ranked eleventh in the championship standings.
