He said Wednesday he has other priorities in life his family, charity work, running his new Honda motorcycle dealership, and building the next generation of bobsleds for the U.S. Olympic team, the Elmiria Star Gazette
Bodine's part-time forays into NASCAR appear to be coming to a close. He intended to race as many as 15 Sprint Cup Series events this past season before his age and health concerns sidelined those plans. Bodine exits NASCAR with 575 Sprint Cup Series starts, 18 victories, and 190 Top-10 finishes. The veteran leaves the sport ranked 24th all-time in starts and has finished as high as third in the driver standings in a single season.
