BODINE: God Told Me It Wasn’t My Time To Die
Welcome to the Mike Haridopolos Show, presented by Space Coast Daily and sponsored by the Deuk Spine Institute, Appliance Direct, SpaceCoastDaily.com and Space Coast Medicine & Active Living magazine.
In this special motorsports edition to mark the 57th running of the Daytona 500 on Sunday, Mike welcomes his special guests, NASCAR legend Geoff Bodine and Congressman Bill Posey, from the showroom of Bodine’s Honda of Melbourne.
A favorite son of Brevard County, Haridopolos was a Republican member of the Florida State Senate, representing the 20th District from 2003-2012.
Mike served as President of the Florida Senate from 2010 to 2012, presiding over the largest Republican majority since Reconstruction. He’s also a long time avid motorsports fan.
Mike is married to Dr. Stephanie Haridopolos and they have three children, Alexis, Hayden and Reagan Brooke.
Don’t miss the never-before-told stories and incredible insights into the world of race car driving, as told by Bodine, the 1986 Daytona 500 winner – along with great anecdotes about Earnhardt, Petty, Kendrick, Tom Cruise and more.
The survivor of perhaps the most horrific crash in the history of auto racing during the Daytona 250 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in 2000, Bodine talks about his encounter with God during the fiery crash, who told him it wasn’t his time to die.
Geoff also talks about how he pitched the movie idea to Tom Cruise during lunch at Olive Garden for “Days of Thunder,” a 1990 auto racing film which includes Cruise, Nicole Kidman and Robert Duvall – and grossed more than $157 million.
Popular Congressman Posey shares his unique insight into his passion for motorsports – and also what it’s like to navigate his challenging job in the nation’s Capitol.
Bill, who won his third term in Washington representing Florida’s 8th congressional district with an impressive 60 percent of the vote in 2012, formerly served in both the Florida Senate and the Florida House of Representatives.
A life-long resident of Brevard County, Posey attended Cocoa High, graduated from Brevard Community College and worked at Kennedy Space Center until the end of the Apollo Program. He then founded Posey & Co. Realtors before entering politics.
So, motorsports (and political) affectionados, make yourself comfortable and enjoy this special enlightening and entertaining one-hour episode of the Mike Haridopolos Show.
