|TBR to Field Car for Geoffrey Bodine in 5 Races
|CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Tommy Baldwin Racing will field a car for Geoffrey Bodine in five races this season.
The 62-year-old Bodine will try to make the race at Daytona next month for TBR in the No. 35 Chevrolet. The team says it has sponsorship from U.S. military healthcare provider Luke Associates, Inc.
Bodine will also attempt to make the races at Charlotte, Talladega, Texas and Homestead.
Bodine made his Cup debut in 1979 and won 18 races over 26 years.
He made one start last season, finishing 41st in a Baldwin-owned car at Pocono. He made just 23 laps in a start-and-park car.
