Bodine Brothers in the No. 26 Discover® Card Ford At Pocono.
Discover Card driver Todd Bodine will get a little help this weekend from his brother Geoffrey as he prepares to run both the Busch and Winston Cup events in different states. The No. 26 driver will get behind the wheel of his Discover Card Ford for Sunday's Pocono 500 as well as piloting his Busch car in Nashville. Geoffrey's main responsibility will be to practice and qualify the HAAS CARTER Motorsports car on Friday. The younger Bodine is excited to have his brother on board to help out."
"Since I have a scheduling conflict this weekend, I am really glad to have Geoffrey helping out the Discover Card team. I couldn't ask for a better sub since he has three victories and two poles at Pocono." Bodine went on to add," Crew chief Donnie Wingo has put a really great qualifying set up under my Discover Card machine, and with me winning the pole last year, I feel really confident that we'll have a good set up for Geoffrey to start working with on Friday. The team will just have to fine tune the car to get the feel Geoff needs to go fast."
Todd believes the biggest help his brother can provide to the team is his expertise." It's no secret that Geoffrey can get around Pocono. Granted, every driver is a little different in what feels good to him, but I don't feel that will be a problem with us. I really think he'll be an asset to me."
Once Todd gets strapped in, he'll be concentrating on putting together as many perfect laps as he can. He went on to add," Pocono is a lot like a road course. There are three distinct corners and it is real easy to make a mistake. The key is not to be overly aggressive in the corners. I'll be working on getting each corner right on every lap I make. That's what allows the car to go fast.”
