Ben has also headed up the “All Rhodes Lead to the Kentucky Speedway” promotional campaign. In the four weeks leading up to the race, Rhodes has been on a media tour promoting the race and recognizing and honoring first responders.

“It’s great to be back home racing at my home track and to honor all of the first responders that protect us and that are there when we need the,” Rhodes said. “And a special thank you to Campbellsville University – Louisville for being the presenting sponsor of this campaign.”

The four-week campaign will culminate Tuesday, at Roosters on Dixie Highway in Louisville with a fundraiser for First Responders.

Mark Mann, the Executive Director of Campbellsville University – Louisville said, “We are extremely proud to be the presenting sponsor of the ‘All Rhodes Lead to the Kentucky Speedway’ campaign and supporting one of NASCAR’s future superstars. Campbellsville University is in the business of creating servant-leaders through Christian Education and First Responders are the truest servant-leaders in our community.”

Rhodes is currently eighth in driver points in the Camping World Truck Series and will be competing for the championship. This race is even more special as Rhodes is driving a Ford 150 Truck this year and the Ford 150 is manufactured in Louisville.
