It's known as the WinStar World Casino 400k, but it might as well be called the Todd Bodine Chase.

Bodine has dominated the race in recent years, winning four times in five June races. In fact, Bodine has recorded six Texas Motor Speedway wins over the years. He'll need to recapture some of that old form, as Bodine has posted just two top-10s this season.

Last year, Bodine dominated the race, leading 97 of the 167 laps to defeat current points leader Johnny Sauter by 1.007 seconds for his 18th of 21 career Truck Series titles. A late-race caution for an accident involving Matt Crafton and David Starr set up a two-lap overtime finish. Hornaday was running second when the race resumed, but he got shoved up the track just after the restart, which allowed Johnny Sauter to take the second spot. With the win, Bodine ended his 24-race winless streak in the series. Ironically, his last victory came one year ago at Texas.

In 2009, Bodine became the first three-time winner of this race, as he outlasted Matt Crafton for his 17th career Truck Series title. Bodine started ninth on the grid and took the lead for the first time on lap 99. Rick Crawford moved in front on the 108th lap, however Bodine reclaimed the lead on lap 125 and held on for a 1.321 seconds win. Pole sitter Johnny Sauter led the first 42 laps, but faded to sixth. Defending champion Ron Hornaday Jr led for 55 laps, but placed 19th.

Hornaday Jr snapped Bodine's two-year stranglehold of this race in 2008, as he defeated Kyle Busch by less than a second for the second of six '08 victories. Starting from the third position, Hornaday led seven times for a race-high 140 laps for his 35th career Truck title. Pole sitter Justin Marks finished a distant 14th. Hornaday, who led the final 57 laps, now has 47 career wins.

When Bodine won in 2007, he became the second back-to-back champion of this race, as he took the checkered flag less than a second ahead of Mike Skinner. Bodine, who started on the pole, led three times for 27 laps, including the final six, as he posted his then 11th Truck Series title and first since the 2006 event. Ron Hornaday Jr, who finished fourth, led twice for 117 laps.

Bodine captured the 2006 Sam's Town 400 (WinStar World Casino 400) with a last lap pass of Mike Skinner. The No.30 Toyota crossed the finish line just one length ahead of Skinner, as he won for the 10th time in his Truck Series career. Bodine led for only one lap, the last as he edged Skinner by 0.116 of a second. Skinner, the pole sitter, led four times for a race-high 113 laps, while Rick Crawford placed third.

Bodine and Busch have alternated wins in Texas the past two years, all in Toyota's. Bodine was the last pole sitter to win in June, back in 2007. In 26 previous races at TMS, a top-10 starting position has won 23 times.

The Camping World Truck Series takes nearly a month off before returning to action with the July 7th running of the Unoh 225 at Kentucky Speedway. Todd Bodine won last year's race there.
