Rhodes Set To Make ARCA Debut
CONCORD, N.C. – NASCAR K&N Pro Series East points leader Ben Rhodes will make his ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards debut with Venturini Motorsports, driving the No.55 Alpha Energy Solutions Toyota Camry at Madison Int’l Speedway on Aug. 24.
“I want to thank Alpha Energy Solutions, Alliance Comfort Systems, and Venturini Motorsports for the opportunity to make my first ARCA start at Madison this weekend. I have followed the series this year and there has been some great racing action just about everywhere they go,” said Rhodes.
Rhodes will be led by his NKNPSE crew chief Mark McFarland on Sunday afternoon in the Herr’s Live Life with Flavor 200.
At 17, Rhodes is no stranger to the national spotlight. Racing since the age of seven (2004), Rhodes has been a controlling force at virtually every level of competition, including the current K&N season driving the No. 41 Turner Scott Motorsports entry.
His five pole positions and five victories through the first three-quarters of the season put Rhodes ahead of the competition in the championship and rookie of the year point standings. He’s also been selected to be a part of the NASCAR Next program for 2014 – 2015.
