Todd Bodine and Team 34 came to Watkins Glen last week like a lamb, but went out like a lion for qualifying and captured the pole for NASCAR Winston Cup Series "Bud at the Glen" race. "We were surprised, without a doubt," said Bodine. Crew chief, Clyde McLeod added, "We're pretty proud of this one. It's nice to know we helped Todd get his first pole and entry into next year's 'Bud ShootOut.'" 150 RACES IN THE BOOKS . . . Indianapolis Raceway Park marked Bodine's 150th start in NASCAR Busch Series competition. As he goes for 151 at Michigan Speedway, he'll try to match his debut performance, when he won the inaugural NASCAR Busch Series in 1992. STANLEY KEEPING TODD BUSY! . . . After a long day of racing, most drivers fly home and relax a little. But Stanley had other plans for Todd Bodine. Following the Winston Cup race in Watkins Glen, Bodine flew from Elmira to Chicago Sunday evening to be a part of Stanley's exhibit in the largest hardware show in the country. Bodine will then fly from Chicago to Michigan where, the morning before the race, Todd will visit Stanley's hospitality tent and sign autographs for approximately 175 people. By Events & Outings, Inc.
