NASCAR | Louisville's Ben Rhodes makes quite a rookie debut

02/24/2016 05:35 PM

He might be young, but 19 year old Ben Rhodes is already turning heads on the NASCAR circuit. The rookie out of Louisville, drove his number 41 Alpha Energy Toyota Tundra Truck to a seventh place finish last Friday at Daytona. Pretty impressive considering this is Ben’s first full year as a NASCAR driver, and Daytona, of course is one of the tougher tracks around. Rookies usually don’t finish top-10 in their initial races.

But Ben has been training, and working for this opportunity for most of his life. The teenager stopped by our Louisville studios to look back at Daytona, and also to preview this Saturday’s 200 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Among the things Ben told us, is what it will take to be successful at Atlanta.
