Ben Rhodes NCWTS Preview: Dover International Speedway
Second Time's A Charm...Making his second of five NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) starts this weekend, Ben Rhodes and the No. 32 Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) team will take on the world's fastest one-mile oval in the No. 32 Alpha Energy Solutions Chevrolet Silverado. After scoring a top-10 finish in his NCWTS debut at Martinsville Speedway, Rhodes has since claimed two NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) victories for TSM, along with three pole awards in just six starts. Rhodes currently leads the NKNPSE points standings.
This Week's Silverado...Crew chief Mike Hillman Jr. and the No. 32 team will unload TSM-217 this weekend at Dover. Chassis 217 was raced by both James Buescher and Ron Hornaday Jr. last year and claimed one pole (Kansas Speedway), one top-five and two top-10 finishes.

Ben Rhodes on Racing at Dover International Speedway:
"I can't wait to get back in the No. 32 truck this weekend at Dover. We had a great run at Martinsville [Speedway] back in March and I'm thankful to get the opportunity to do it again. I really enjoyed working with Mike Hillman Jr. and his crew; I learned a lot. My Turner Scott Motorsports teammate Tayler Malsam has done well in the No. 32 truck so far, so I hope I can keep the pattern going. I've competed at Dover once in the K&N Series and I really like this type of track. I'm ready to learn more from my team and to take on this challenge. I get to race the truck on Friday night, and then turn around and race the K&N car at Bowman Gray on Saturday. Life is pretty good."
