The renowned racetrack maestro candidly discussed on the ‘NASCAR Live’ podcast how his steadfast faith was the cornerstone of his path. Bodine highlights his disbelief at being a writer while illuminating the unexpected trip from the racetrack to the bookshelves. What inspired him to create the book, though, is the thought-provoking statement on the back cover of the book.
Talking to the host, Mike Bagley, Geoff said, “I never dreamed that I will have a book. But, The special reason why, I wanted to write this book is actually on the backside of the book. The Back cover tells why and it’s pretty special reason. So we are excited about the book.” The book’s rear cover underlines Bodine’s wish to impart more than simply his racing experiences. He intends to explore the significant influence of faith in his life while also educating racing aficionados and non-fans.
Bodine hopes to uplift readers with his book by sharing tales of resiliency, miracles, and the persistent strength of faith throughout times of hardship. The back cover of the book reads: “RACE FANS, ALONG WITH CHRISTIANS, ALWAYS WANT TO KNOW THE REST OF THE STORY.”
The cover also read, “My book will help teach the non-race fan about auto racing, and for all readers, it will show how true faith in God and accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior might give them a miracle when they need one.”
Safe to say the veteran saw a fair share of adversities in his time and fans would get to read more about it in his book. One of his toughest moments was probably his crash on the track that he is so famously known for conquering.
Bodine’s Unforgettable Daytona Crash
On February 18, 2000, during the 57th lap of the Daytona 250 Truck Series race at Daytona International Speedway, Geoff Bodine’s world was engulfed in chaos. Driving the No. 15 Ford F-150 for Billy Ballew, he found himself in a violent, fiery crash that threatened to end not just the race, but possibly his career. Miraculously, he survived the ordeal and, against all odds, continued to race.

Further expanding on the idea of writing a book, Bodine said: “It’s all explained why in this book, why that happened. So, in the accident in Daytona really, like I said earlier, a reason for it, it’s in here, it tells why. It gave me a platform to share about my faith and about how strong it is and if you truly believe, you can get a miracle like I did. And that’s the real reason why I wrote this book.”
Despite facing trials and tribulations throughout his life, Bodine credits his faith as one of the primary reasons behind his survival and subsequent success in the world of racing.
