Turner Scott Motorsports PR (November 7th, 2014) – Ben Rhodes No. 32 Alpha Energy Solutions Chevrolet Silverado Preview: Phoenix International Raceway
One Last Shot…Making his fourth and final NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start with Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) this season, Ben Rhodes hopes to finish strong in the No. 32 Alpha Energy Solutions Chevrolet Silverado. In his previous three NCWTS starts at Martinsville Speedway, Dover International Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway, the 17-year-old had limited track time due to rain canceling or shortening practice sessions. This time around, Rhodes and crew chief Mike Hillman Jr. hope the desert weather stays intact as they look to capitalize off of their two top-10 finishes and claim TSM’s first NCWTS victory this season.
What a Champ…The Louisville, Kentucky, native completed his NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) rookie season last month, earning the two biggest accomplishments of his young racing career to date. After dominating the 2014 season with five victories, six pole awards and a 60-point lead in the championship standings, Rhodes was named the NKNPSE champion and Sunoco Rookie of the Year. Rhodes’ accomplishment marked back-to-back championships for TSM in the NKNPSE.

Ben Rhodes on Racing at Phoenix International Raceway:
“I’m so excited to get back behind the wheel of our Alpha Energy Solutions truck. We’ve had three good runs this year, but I’m more determined than ever for this weekend at Phoenix. I’ve never raced at this track, so I’m looking forward to getting some practice time in and learning everything I can from my team. I’ve enjoyed working with Hillman and the crew so much this year. I can’t thank Harry Scott and Alpha Energy Solutions enough for giving me such a great opportunity this year. This is our last shot and I’m ready.”
