Reigning NCWTS champion Todd Bodine was in doubt to make the race this weekend at Iowa, but a late deal has saved his efforts to try for a repeat title.

Germain Racing has partnered with Randy Moss Motorsports in efforts to save both teams' lackluster seasons. Both lacked full sponsorship and both drivers, Bodine and Kvapil, are not having the season either had hoped. Currently Bodine is 11th in series standings while Kvapil sits 18th.

This deal leaves Kvapil without a Truck Series ride and his Sprint Cup Series seat was filled this weekend with J.J. Yeley, so Kvapil will be sitting on the sidelines.

The full details are yet to be worked out. Sponsorship from Bodine included Valvoline and Tire Kingdom, while Kvapil’s team has been sponsored by International Truck. Headed to Iowa, Bodine will pilot the No. 5 truck with his regular crew chief Mike Hillman Jr. The crew members will be a mashup of both teams.

Bodine has run every Truck Series race since September 2004 and his streak seems to be intact, thanks to a late save by Randy Moss Motorsports.
