On the Line… Despite being out of the chase for a driver’s championship, Ben Rhodes and the No. 41 are still on the hunt for the NCWTS owner’s title, a first for ThorSport Racing if achieved. With his run at Martinsville Speedway this past weekend, Rhodes aided in the fight running as high as second, and ultimately finishing fourth, while spending 185 of 200 laps in the top-15 among the field.
Chatting with Ben Rhodes…
“With the recent repave at Texas Motor Speedway, it has brought challenges for teams, but I think we did a great job finding speed in our No. 41 Carolina Nut Co. Ford F-150 earlier this year. Unfortunately, that was one of the races where we had issues with our truck that took us out of contention, but if you look back, we challenged for the lead and was a solid top-five contender. It was definitely a truck that could’ve won the race. I feel very confident going back to this track this weekend. I feel Texas and Homestead-Miami Speedway will be our two strongest tracks left this season.”
