Bodine signs a one-race deal with ThorSport Racing

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- ThorSport Racing announced Monday that Todd Bodine will get behind the wheel of the No. 13 Toyota Tundra with Mattei Air Compressors as his sponsor for the Feb. 22 NASCAR Camping World Truck series race at Daytona.

Although the No. 13 is known for being the truck of Johnny Sauter, he will switch to the No. 98 for the one race to make room for Bodine in the NextEra Energy Resources 250.

"This deal with Todd and Mattei Air Compressors came together late in the game but we believe good things come to those who are patient. By far, this is the best lineup we've ever started the season with at ThorSport and we expect to have a strong showing at Daytona. We can't wait to get 2013 started," ThorSport Racing general manager David Pepper said.

Bodine will work with crew chief Jeriod Prince, who works on ThorSport's No. 44 ARCA team.
