NASCAR | "Four Crazy Questions" with Ben Rhodes

07/04/2017 02:12 PM

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Ben Rhodes is getting ready to hit the track at Kentucky Speedway this week.

The Louisville native will race Thursday night at the 1.5-mile oval in Sparta.

Rhodes is hoping to claim victory in the Buckle Up In Your Truck 225. Should he win, it would be Rhodes’ first victory in his NASCAR career.

Rhodes was at the Louisville City FC match on Saturday to promote the race. While there, Spectrum News’ Andrew Chernoff caught up with Rhodes to ask him “Four Crazy Questions.”

The questions ranged from what Rhodes’ favorite song is right now to what sport he would participate in if he wasn’t racing.
