Bodine Trucks Team Adds Sponsorship
Todd Bodine’s 2009 Camping World Truck Series campaign picked up some desperately needed help Wednesday when communications software company Ventrilo announced that it will be the primary sponsor of the No. 30 Germain Racing Toyota at Kansas Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway and Gateway International Raceway.
“As a racing enthusiast, I am thrilled about our partnership with Germain Racing this upcoming NASCAR season,” said Brian Knapp, president, Flagship Industries, owner of Ventrilo. “This is the perfect opportunity to expand the Ventrilo brand beyond the traditional user in the online computer gaming industry.”
Crew chief Mike Hillman Jr. said, “We are excited to partner with Flagship Industries and make the Ventrilo Tundra part of their ongoing marketing efforts. We know that our No. 30 team will create expanded visibility and interest in Ventrilo. The Flagship Industries headquarters are just outside of St. Louis, so the Kansas and Gateway races are very important to them. We’ve been to victory lane at both tracks and I know Todd and I would like nothing more than to get the No. 30 Ventrilo Tundra into victory lane at Kansas (next weekend) – the track where we earned our first win together.”
Bodine opened the 2009 Truck Series season with a record-setting fourth-consecutive win on a superspeedway by capturing a repeat victory at Daytona International Speedway. He has earned a combined total of 31 victories in both the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series. Together with Hillman Jr. at Germain Racing, Bodine has pushed the No. 30 Ventrilo Tundra to the forefront of the Toyota Tundra lineup by
“Obviously to carry the logo of a Midwest company to race at Kansas Speedway, Gateway and again at Bristol is a big honor,” Bodine said. “I’m very excited about our new relationship with Ventrilo and Flagship Industries. The No. 30 Ventrilo Tundra was very fast last year at Kansas. We have a win there and with all we’ve learned this season, I’m looking forward to giving the folks at Flagship Industries a great performance and a lot of exposure for the Ventrilo brand.”
