CHARLOTTE, N.C. (March 31, 1998)

Barry Bodine, youngest son of NASCAR Winston Cup Series driver Geoff Bodine, has been named the driver of Jim and Holly Clark's No. 63 Prime Performance Motorsports Chevrolet heading into this weekend's Florida Dodge Dealers 400K NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Miami-Dade Homestead Motor Sports Complex.

The move reunites the Barry Bodine, 20, with crew chief Steve May, who recently joined Prime Performance after serving as Bodine's crew chief on the No. 7 Mattei Motorsports/Geoff Bodine Racing Ford in the season-opening Chevy Trucks Challenge.

In that race, his 11th series start, Bodine qualified 21st and was running well until engine problems ended his day. The younger Bodine ran seven truck races in 1997 and closed the season with lead-lap finishes at California Speedway in Fontana and Phoenix International Raceway.

May has more than 30 years of motorsports experience working as a crew chief and team manager in NASCAR Modified, NASCAR Busch Series Grand National Division, NASCASR Winston Cup Series and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series teams, including Cale Yarborough Motorsports and Geoff Bodine Racing.

Bodine replaces Rick Johnson, the former AMA Supercross and Motocross standout who ran three races for Clark last season and scored two top-10 finishes, including a fourth-place at Sears Point Raceway.

Bud Pole Qualifying for the Florida Dodge Dealers 400 is Friday afternoon and the race will be held on Saturday.
