TODD BODINE, No. 30 Germain.com Toyota Tundra, Germain Racing

How do you feel about driving a pink truck this weekend? "For a lot of reasons, promoting Breast Cancer Awareness has been an important mission for Germain Racing since our first season in the Truck Series. All of the Germain Racing race vehicles will have pink ribbons on them through October in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month, but the 30 team is taking it a step further. At Martinsville, the Germain.com Tundra is going to be very pink! Everything that would normally be red is going to be pink, and I'm getting some pink decals to put on my helmet for the race weekend, as well. The truck is going to look great. I can't wait to see it!"

What did it mean to you when you won at Martinsville last year? "Winning at Martinsville last year was really special for me because it was close to home and I had a lot of friends and family there. It's my home track and to win there was the best moment of my career, so far. This whole year has been a success. We've had our share of blown motors and wrecks but some of that is out of our control. When we can contend for wins and top-five finishes each week, then we can't consider each weekend anything less than a success. Those struggles just make you more determined and grateful for the good weeks."
