NASCAR 167 43 Todd Bodine's top 10 racing accomplishments and moments 22027829 Family man Family+man NASCAR

Todd Bodine, 46, has been a mainstay in NASCAR for decades.

The son of track operators and the brother of racers Geoffrey and Brett, it was only natural that he would make his way into the elite ranks of the sport – and emerge as a championship contender once there.

Through the years, Bodine has raced in all three major touring series and challenged for titles in two of them. He has racked up wins and top finishes – and a pair of championships – along the way.

As he celebrates his 2010 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series title, here’s a look at 10 of Bodine’s top career accomplishments:

Bodine certainly knows how to get to the front of the field, and stay there. He has tallied 4,728 laps at the front of the field – an even more impressive feat considering that he has run mostly the Nationwide and Truck schedules in recent years, events that are shorter than those in Cup. He clearly knows how to pace the pack.

Bodine came by racing naturally. What else could he do but end up driving? His parents owned Chemung (N.Y.) Speedway near Elmira, and Bodine grew up there. He joined the crew of his brother, Brett (pictured, left), at the age of 13 and went to watch him win Street Stock races. Geoffrey Bodine (right) was already competing on Modifieds at that point. Todd himself stepped behind the wheel at the age of 19 and has been racing ever since. He has racked up his own successes in a variety of series and is now the lone Bodine competing in NASCAR. He is carrying on the family name with his second Truck title this season.
