SPEED To Air Bodine Bobsled Challenge This Sunday

 Event To Air From 4-6 p.m.

Daytona Beach, FL — Events from the Fourth Annual Whelen Geoff Bodine Bobsled Challenge will air on SPEED this Sunday, Jan. 25, from 4-6 p.m.

The Whelen Geoff Bodine Bobsled Challenge, which took place Jan. 2-4 Lake Placid, N.Y., featured NASCAR and NHRA drivers competing at the Olympic Sports Complex, site of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics.

SPEED’s Sunday programming will showcase Race 2 of the two-segment competition, which pitted NASCAR and NHRA drivers against each other in an elimination competition. Current drivers Todd Bodine, Joey Logano and Boris Said represented NASCAR along with former driver – and founder of the event – Geoff Bodine.

The show was originally scheduled to air from 2-4 p.m. on Sunday, but has been moved back two hours to the 4-6 p.m. time slot following the network’s coverage of the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Race 1, the first segment of the Bodine Bobsled Challenge that determined an overall winner based solely on time, aired on Jan. 18.

The Bodine Bobsled Challenge was established to raise money for the Bo-Dyn Bobsled Project, which was started in 1992 by Geoff Bodine. The Bo-Dyn Bobsled Project has built American-made bobsleds for United States athletes competing in the World Cup, World Championships and Olympic Winter Games. Funds raised from the Bodine Bobsled Challenge go directly to this project.
