Todd Bodine talks about Kansas Speedway:
What does it take to be successful at Kansas Speedway?
“Kansas is a lot different now than when it was new. It’s worn in and really slick. The setup and balance on the truck make a huge difference. I like the challenge of the track as a driver; I feel really good about the truck that we are bringing this weekend, especially with the Joe Gibbs Engine power under the hood. With that, we have a great shot at running well.”
How will your driving style change on a long green-flag run?
“It’s the kind of track now where you try to set up for the fastest groove. When you get into the race, the track is hot and the tires are slicked up; you try to move around. As a driver you can make a difference by trying different things – by various lines and driving styles.”
