Ben Rhodes – 2017 Las Vegas Preview

Chatting with Ben Rhodes…
“I love Vegas. I think its a really fun race track and it has one of the best turnouts of fans – they’re awesome – and they get to interact with us up close in the garages, the facilities are top-notch. There’s good racing, a good line, it’s smooth, it’s fast, it’s just a really good race track. It’s a favorite of mine because it’s just so different than the other mile-and-a-half tracks we go to.”
