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

Is your team confident going into the final seven races of the season with your current points lead? "We're prepared and we're ready to go for the last stretch here. I know Mike (Hillman, crew chief) Jr. has done a great job and the guys in the shop have worked hard. Everybody at Germain Racing has been working hard. We've got Max Papis and Miguel Paludo to run some races here at the end of the year so we're going to have three trucks at a lot of races and that makes it a little harder on our team. But, like I said, they've prepared for it and we're ready to go. To be able to be in this position to possibly get another championship and running well every week like we do it just shows the character of the team and what the team is all about. We just don't give up and it's part of our credo -- just keep digging."
