Chatting with Ben Rhodes…
With nothing to lose, what are your plans to close out the season on a high-note at Homestead Friday night?
“I plan to win the race. I plan to end the season on a high note for all the hard work and sacrifice that each and every person on this No. 27 Safelite team has put in. They deserve a championship, and while I can’t give them that, I can give them a win. Duke and Rhonda Thorson, as well as everyone back at the shop who makes it all possible, deserves a good finish to the season. Thank you to all of my fans and sponsors for the support throughout the year.”
