It just was not meant to be.

Louisville native Ben Rhodes looked strong early in Thursday night’s Buckle Up In Your Truck 225, winning “Stage 1” of the race.

Shortly though into “Stage 2,” his luck changed.

He was part of an incident on lap 43 that also impacted Matt Crafton and Grant Enfinger.

Rhodes would not return to the race. He finished 27th.

Rhodes ended up leading five laps Thursday night.

Christopher Bell wound up winning the race, leading 54 laps.
