Todd Bodine will make a milestone start Saturday night in theTruck Series race at Chicagoland Speedway. The event will be the 200th for Bodine, and it will make him the only driver with at least 200 starts in all three of NASCAR's national series. ''You get into this sport because you love it, want to go in circles, win races and have fun," said the 48-year-old Bodine. "And here we are 21 years later with all these starts, and a lot of wins, good times and great friends. "It seems just like yesterday I was running my first race at Stafford Springs.'' Bodine has made 241 starts in NASCAR's top Sprint Cup Series, and he has 325 starts in the second-tier Nationwide Series. With a total of 766 starts, Bodine ranks 20th all-time in combined series starts. But Bodine is chasing wins, and he would like to add to that total at Chicago. The two-time Truck Series champion has 22 victories in that series, but is winless so far this season. He'd like to end that Saturday night in his Red Horse Racing entry. ''While you try to win them all, it would be pretty special to win the 200th,'' Bodine said. ''To have that kind of longevity in the sport and still be able to get it done, especially in a significant moment like that, definitely would make it a lot more special.'' Bodine has a pair of runner-up finishes in three Truck Series starts at Chicagoland and has won the pole at the track in the Truck, Nationwide and Cup Series. After Saturday night's race, Bodine has a long way to go to catch Rick Crawford's record 334 Truck Series starts. He believes he's got another 134 races in him. ''I'd like to have that,'' he said of Crawford's mark. ''I feel like I've got another 10 years left, 334 is doable.''
