Ben Rhodes Advances To The Round of 6 Despite a 23rd-Place Finish at Talladega

 

“Good thing we won at Vegas. Our Safelite Tundra had speed all day, we just never were able to make it up front – we were trying to play it safe for a while. I knew it would be too hard to get up front, to get the stage points we needed, but people were just driving really sporadic today, not staying in their lanes. Just side drafting in the tri-oval when they shouldn’t, and side drafting in and out of the corners. Just not smart racing in my opinion, and a lot of times that causes the line to checkup. Unfortunately, I got into the back of a couple people today, from the line checking up so quickly – just that accordion effect – and finally somebody side-drafted the guy in front of me in the tri-oval, and got them loose, and just wrecked in front of us. Just need to be a little smarter racing out here at Talladega. I tried to do my best today, we just weren’t able to get up front due to circumstances.”
