Ben Rhodes just made his 100th career Gander Trucks start at Atlanta Motor Speedway. This weekend, he’ll make his 103rd career start at his home track of Kentucky Speedway.
Rhodes, who is from Louisville, not only has the connection to Kentucky for growing up just outside of the track’s location but it’s also the place where he got his second career win.
In 2018, Rhodes started third at Kentucky and won the race. Rhodes’ first career win was in 2017 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Rhodes has quietly moved his way up to second in the points standings this season, 51 points behind points leader Austin Hill. Although he doesn’t have a win so far this season, he has two top fives, four top 10s and is also ranked third in the Playoff standings.
He is even sitting in front of his ThorSport Racing teammate Grant Enfinger in the points standings without a win.
Rhodes has four starts at Kentucky with one win, one top five and one top 10. He led 43 laps and has an average start of 6.2 and an average finish of 15.0.
