Ben Rhodes

Ben Rhodes claimed his second CRAFTSMAN Truck Series title in 2023. The Louisville, Kentucky, native began his career in go-karts at the age of seven, winning races and championships on both dirt and asphalt before moving up to Bandoleros in 2008. After earning his state and Midwest titles in 2009, the young racer quickly adapted to the bigger and faster Legends cars in 2010. The next year, Rhodes tallied more championships to underscore his season 43 Legends Car victories, more than any other driver internationally.
