Chatting with Ben Rhodes…

 

“I’m really looking forward to the challenge of racing on a road course again. The last time I did that, last year at this time, the race went well but it could’ve gone a little better. Unfortunately, we had some mishaps on the racetrack with another competitor, but since then, I think we’ve ironed everything out. Myself, as a road course racer, I’m getting better and better each year. It’s something I really enjoy, so I’m definitely excited to get on track in practice Saturday. I think we’re going to have a fast FEI World Equestrian Games Ford F-150. I just have to do my part in keeping all four tires on the asphalt and put ourselves in the best position for a playoff run.”
