Bodine, 60 now and essentially retired from racing unless someone wants to put him in the driver's seat again, has put a lifetime of memorabilia, trophies, even cars up for sale this week.

He is doing it, in part, so it doesn't sit packed away in boxes and closets.

But he's also doing it because he needs the money.

“I'm like millions of people. I could use some money to pay some bills,” Bodine says, glancing across the small warehouse where a handful of people are studying the merchandise.
