Two time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion Todd Bodine entered the WinStar World Casino 400 as the most recent Truck Series race winner. With high hopes for a seventh win at Texas Motor Speedway and a back-to-back victory, Bodine was relegated to a 30th-place finish after a blown engine early on in the race.
Qualifying for the 167-lap event was called for rain on Thursday afternoon, leaving the field to be set by the NASCAR rule book. The Onion started from the seventh position and moved his way into the fifth position after only 10 laps.
Bodine took over the fourth-place on lap 20 making a charge to the front of the field. It was on lap 31, when his No. 11 Toyota Tundra lost an engine. Unable to return to the track, Bodine left with a 30th-place finish moving him into the 10th place in the Truck Series driver's points.
Comments from the driver:
"Our Toyota Tundra was really good. We could have gone to the front and done some more work. We've got a lot going for us on this race team. Tom DeLoach has done a great job with this team and Rick is doing a great job -- all the guys at the shop are. We had a really good truck. It's a shame, but its part of racing. Everyone at Joe Gibbs Engines do a great job, it was just a part failure."
The Truck Series returns to action on Thursday, June 28th at Kentucky Speedway for the UNOH 225 which can be watched live on SPEED at 7:30 p.m., ET.
