January 11, 1959
Brett Bodine
Born in Chemung, New York, USA.
For his 18 year Winston Cup career Bodine started 480 races with 5 poles, 1 win, 16 top fives, and 61 top tens while winning over 13 million dollars in prize money. Brett is the younger brother of 1986 Daytona 500 winner Geoff Bodine and the older brother of 2006 Craftsman Truck Series champion Todd Bodine. He was the 1986 Busch Series Most Popular Driver and is inducted into Modified Hall of Fame.

Bodine currently works for NASCAR at its research and development center as the Director of Competition, R&D. He works on cost-cutting measures for the sport, the Car of Tomorrow program (now known as simply the "new car"), and he drives the pace car during all Sprint Cup Series events, except for those events with a promotional or celebrity pace car driver. Even then, during races with a celebrity pace car driver, Bodine rides shotgun and guides the driver through all NASCAR pace car protocols.
