Previous Race Recap...Kennedy overcame a 17th-place starting position to earn a top-10 finish in his second-career NCWTS event at Chicagoland Speedway. Despite starting the event with tight handling and a slight vibration, Kennedy was able to navigate his Heater.com Chevrolet to the front of the field, ultimately crossing the finish line in the seventh position and gaining two spots in the NCWTS Driver Point Standings.
Ben Kennedy on New Hampshire Motor Speedway:
"New Hampshire is a track I like a lot since it fits my driving style, but I've also had a couple of hard hits in my last two K&N races there; both times in Turn 2, actually. Neither of those were very fun. But, with four starts there, I'm pretty familiar with the track and feel that should help me out with a lot of the learning curve. Fortunately, with this being the first time the Truck Series has raced there in a few years, we've got a lot of practice scheduled. We had a great race last weekend in Chicago, so we're hoping to keep the momentum going as we head into Loudon and this final stretch of races. I'm ready to get my Heater.com Silverado into Victory Lane."
