With two races left in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series’ Round of 6, Ben Rhodes holds the final transfer spot to the Championship 4 race at Homestead-Miami Speedway by 11 points over Austin Cindric.
Although Rhodes is in good shape, he knows he still has work to do, beginning with Friday’s JAG Metals 350 at Texas Motor Speedway. The No. 27 ThorSport racing driver hopes to get a victory for automatic advancement to the Championship 4.
“Our mile-and-a-half program has been our strongpoint this season, so I definitely think we can get a win,” Rhodes said. “The challenge is going to be once again with the new surface and making sure we qualify up front for track position.”
Rhodes won the last race at a 1.5-mile track – Las Vegas on Oct. 14. He placed fifth at Texas in June and owns a 10.3 average finish in three career starts there.
“Texas Motor Speedway is a very fast racetrack with a lot of grip,” Rhodes said. “And we’ve performed quite well at tracks that have a lot of grip.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
