BEN RHODES BATTLES TO FOURTH IN CHAOTIC WORLD OF WESTGATE 200 AT LAS VEGAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY

“It seemed like it was chaos when they dropped the green flag. We had a very fast Carolina Nut Ford F-150 – we just needed clean air to showcase that. The guys on pit road did an amazing job to get me to the front. Once that happened, we were able to lead some laps. I’m very proud of their effort. Unfortunately, it came down to restarts at the end of the race. The restarts are what dictated where we were going to finish. All in all, it was a very solid performance for us considering we started in the back. I just wish we were able to get more stage points to help our playoff efforts. We’re off to Talladega, and it’s going to be all about luck getting into the Round of 6.”
