TOP-10 FINISH FOR BEN RHODES AT MARTINSVILLE
Talk about surviving this race and your Playoff outlook now.
“Yeah, we survived, but just barely. I didn’t survive in the position that I wanted to survive in. I wish we were a little bit further up. The whole race was a little bit frustrating. We had a top-five truck, I felt like. We ran up there the whole day. I feel like we made a bad call on pit strategy because we came in, and everybody else stayed out. Then that just put us in the back, and we just got knocked into the wall – bounced around like a pin ball. All-in-all, our Safelite Tundra was fast, we just didn’t get back up through the field like we wanted to, and we saw that with a lot of trucks today. The 4 (Christopher Bell) got back up front in his Tundra, and you know he got taken out, and he couldn’t get back up through the field again. You know it’s just really, really, hard to pass here. I feel like maybe we missed it on pit strategy, just a little bit. We probably could have had a little bit better day, but overall still an okay day for points. Just always wish it could be a little better.”
