Ben Rhodes NCWTS Preview: Martinsville Speedway I
First Time For Everything...Making his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) debut this weekend, Ben Rhodes will be behind the wheel of the No. 32 Alpha Energy Solutions Chevrolet Silverado for Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM). It may be his first time at Martinsville Speedway, but the 17-year-old is no stranger to short-track racing and is the current points leader in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. The Kroger 250 will be one of five NCWTS races for Rhodes this season.
This Week's Silverado...Under the direction of two-time NCWTS championship-winning crew chief Mike Hillman, Jr., Rhodes and the No. 32 team will unload TSM-231, a chassis run just once by former TSM driver Miguel Paludo in last year's fall Martinsville event.

Ben Rhodes on Racing at Martinsville Speedway:
"I'm really excited to be making my Truck Series debut this weekend at Martinsville [Speedway]. I know we're going with a great truck and I'm very confident in my Turner Scott Motorsports team. I was able to test with these guys a few weeks ago and it went great. I'm really looking forward to working with [Mike] Hillman [Jr.] throughout the year and plan to learn as much as possible throughout these five races."
