Ben Rhodes - Louisville Holy Cross - Wins 2018 KY Buckle Up In Your Truck 225

Recommended Posts

Sparta Kentucky - Louisville Holy Cross Cougars graduate Ben Rhodes wins the 2018 Buckle Up In Your Truck 225 at Kentucky Speedway.

 

Rhodes' Crew Chief, Eddie Troconis, made the call on a green flag pit stop with 25 laps to go to only take fuel and no tires and that decision was the difference as Rhodes finished just ahead of Stewart Friesen to win at Kentucky Speedway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Here is an interesting fact about Rhodes from Wikipedia:

 

(Rhodes) finished high school with a 3.98 GPA despite missing classes due to his racing career. He missed the school's graduation ceremony on May 15 because he was in Iowa to prepare for his Xfinity Series debut the next day; the school's president traveled to the race to present Rhodes with his diploma during driver introductions.

 

Congrats Ben! You are officially my Favorite NASCAR Truck Driver.

 

The win puts Rhodes in 6th place in the Driver Standings and guarantees him a spot in the playoffs.

Didn't even know the races were at Sparta this weekend.

 

Good to see a local guy win at the local track.

Ben Rhodes just won at Darlington SC.  

I believe this is his first win since winning at KY a couple of years ago.
