BEN RHODES DRIVES TO SECOND AT TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY

“We pretty much had to start dead last after scuffing the wall in qualifying. I was disappointed in that [starting position], but really proud of how our team rallied and put this Carolina Nut Co. Ford F-150 up in second place. Overall, this race was all about track position and managing restarts, managing pit stops. I feel like we were better than where we finished tonight. We just burnt the tires up, but a lot of people were blocking tonight. It was just a weird race how it all played out. We’re going to do the best we can to keep on pursuing the owner’s championship.”
