2012 has been a year to forget for Todd Bodine. He struggled badly in his first season at Red Horse Racing. The only bright spot for Bodine was his lone victory of the season coming at Dover Downs International Raceway in June. He finished 14th in the points standings, which is the only time Bodine has finished outside the top ten in points in his eight full seasons in the Truck Series.

Today, Bodine's 2012 just got a lot worse. Rumors have Bodine being the odd man out at Red Horse Racing as the team has scaled back to a two truck operation for the 2013 season. Timothy Peters appears to be back with the organization and last week the team signed John Wes Townley to a contract, bringing sponsorship money from Zaxby's, a company which is owned by Townley's father.

It appears the two time Truck Series champion is out of a ride for 2013, and Bodine's options may be slim. Bodine and Red Horse Racing could not be reached for comment today.
