In 2011, Legends Young Lions division driver Ben Rhodes raced to 43 victories across the country, more than any other Legends car driver internationally. A few years later, Rhodes will be racing for one of the biggest names in motorsports in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.
In December it was announced Rhodes will drive the No. 88 Alpha Energy Solutions Chevrolet for JR Motorsports in a part-time schedule, wheeling the ride 10 times during the 2015 season. Rhodes will split time in the No. 88 with Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Kevin Harvick, and Kasey Kahne.
“I’m thrilled to be joining one of the top teams in NASCAR for the 2015 season,” Rhodes said. “It’s been my goal to compete in NASCAR’s top tiers, and this is a tremendous opportunity with JR Motorsports and Alpha Energy Solutions to race in the XFINITY Series.”
Rhodes won five races in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East in 2014 driving for Turner Scott Motorsports, claiming the series championship, rookie of the year honors, and most popular driver vote by the fans.
