“I like New Hampshire Motor Speedway, I think it’s a really fun race track. It’s depressing to me though that it will be the last time I’ll race there in the Truck Series, since they are taking that race away from us next year. I like it though, I’m familiar with it, and I know how to get there. With all the tracks I’ve never been to, it’s hard to even find the infield sometimes – you don’t know where to park – so just knowing where to park, and how to get in the infield is a big plus.” – Ben Rhodes
