BEN RHODES BOUNCES BACK WITH TOP-FIVE FINISH AT CHARLOTTE MOTOR SPEEDWAY 
“I feel like our Alpha Energy Solutions Ford F-150 passed about 65 trucks tonight. It was kind of disappointing. I seemed like every single time we were on the outside, we would inherit the inside. You want to be on the outside here – it was kind of like winning the lottery. If you got the outside, you’d win big. If you came to the inside line on the restart, you would lose big. It seemed like every single time, we were the losers. We still made it up, we still got a top-five finish today, but the restarts were absolutely crazy. It was a tough night for our guys – we fought hard. The pit crew did a great job, mechanics did a great job – we’re just going to back to the drawing board on our front package, so next time we have to pass several trucks in one race, we can do it with no contest.”
