SANDUSKY, Ohio — There’s no question Todd Bodine knows how to race well at Martinsville Speedway. But if you’re a Bodine racing in Martinsville, Va., running well isn’t good enough — you’re expected to win.
That’s because Todd’s older brothers, Geoff and Brett, have an unprecedented winning legacy at Martinsville. Geoff is the only driver in the track’s history to have won in modified, sportsman (current Nationwide Series) and Cup Series cars — including what’s now Hendrick Motorsports’ first Cup Series win.
Geoff was part of the greatest finish in the track’s — and some say in all of motorsports’ history — with the late, great Richie Evans in 1981. For his part, Brett has two Modified Tour wins and two victories in the Busch Series at Martinsville’s .526-mile oval.
Being winless at the paperclip-shaped oval is a heavy burden for Todd Bodine to carry to Virginia this weekend as he’ll line his No. 13 SealMaster Toyota up for his 18th NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start t
