“All of It: Daytona 500 Champion Tells the Rest of the Story” officially released on Tuesday, Feb. 13 at major retailers, less than a week before this year’s Daytona 500 on Fox.

The autobiography, written in collaboration with Dominic Aragon, takes a close look at Bodine’s life from growing up in New York to aspirations of competing in the Daytona 500, his life as a professional racecar driver, his faith and more.

“The time has come to share my stories with the world, and I am thrilled to share my experiences – going from dreaming about racecars to winning on America’s biggest stage – with readers,” said Bodine, the 1986 Daytona 500 winner. “I hope non-race fans and race fans alike will enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed putting this book together.”

Bodine competed in NASCAR’s top division from 1979 to 2011. During that span, Bodine raced for legendary car owners, competed for championships, won the sport’s biggest race, had a fierce rivalry with the late Dale Earnhardt Sr., competed as an owner-driver following the death of Alan Kulwicki, and survived a fiery crash in a NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Daytona.

The book’s cover image features an original rendering of Bodine’s No. 5 ride from Hendrick Motorsports, while the back cover shows an image of Bodine in a fire suit pointing to the back of his helmet, which reads “In God We Trust.”

The foreword is written by NASCAR championship-winning team owner Rick Hendrick, the legendary owner of Hendrick Motorsports, who selected Bodine to be his first driver.

Bodine and Aragon, the editor-in-chief of The Racing Experts, teamed up to tell Bodine’s story, a project years in the making.

“We have dedicated the last several years to carefully curating Geoff’s story to inspire others to follow their passions,” Aragon said. “Like Geoff said, it is a dream come true to see the final product and have the book in hand.” 

Trilogy Christian Publishing, the publishing arm of Trinity Broadcast Network, is the publisher of the autobiography.

“We are so excited about releasing ‘All of It’ by Geoff Bodine and Dominic Aragon here at TBN,” said Mark Mingle, Acquisitions Executive at Trilogy Christian Publishing. “Geoff has had an amazing NASCAR career, and now as he shares his life and faith through his new book, he is stepping into the exciting realm of ‘published author.’ 

“Geoff and Dom have collaborated to produce a truly inspirational message that will be an encouragement to all who read it.”

The book sells for $24.99 and is available at major retailers, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and

Additionally, fans can purchase a special autographed copy of “All of It” signed by Bodine at will have several appearances to promote the book, including at this weekend’s Daytona 500, the following weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway, and more to be announced at a later date.


  1. Yawn…

    While never a Geoff fan, I’d rather read about his modified days as an innovator, his rides in his 99, the infamous big red machine #1 (I personally loathed and loved that car), the 66/99 Lee Allard rides, the Billy Taylor White Lighting 99, even that win in the 300 (?) in the Allan Whipple ride, (his chassis?)… help me, correct me here folks, memory is getting sketchy…

    Sounds like he’s at New Smyrna helping out on a Sportsman ride.. good for him, builds character…

  2. Not exactly the most charismatic driver ever to don a racing suit but no one will ever say he wasn’t smart. Bet that book is loaded with all kinds of juicy tidbits that include his early exploits locally from racing. Chassis Dynamics and even Bo-Dyn Bobsleds that won events at the Olympics. Man did a lot of the folks at Stafford hate him in his days there battling Evans. Constantly innovating didn’t he even try an auto trans in a modified?
    Including his faith a deal killer for me but perhaps it’s just the ticket for his target audience and beyond.

  3. Suitcase Jake says

    Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater Boys…. Give it a chance… He may go soup to nuts…. Beginning to end…. I love to read all the Racing books on Coastal 181 and many more … Curtis Turner book was amazing and didn’t realize it until reading it, Smokey Yunick book was the best ever if you can get your hands on a copy Best damn garage in town …So I will also read Geoff’s Book , Who started right here in New England ….I am sure he covers the early Modifieds and Richie and His famous finish at Martinsville , With Richie riding the wall with his foot firmly planted to the floor to take the HISTORIC FINISH WIN…
