Rhodes, who is celebrating his 17th birthday today (Feb. 21), will be on hand to sign autographs and talk with fans about his racing career on the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East.  The show is open Friday (6-11 p.m.), Saturday (10-10), and Sunday (Noon-6).

In his most recent K&N start, Rhodes earned the pole for Tuesday’s Daytona race, broadcast nationally on Fox Sports 2. After staying in the top 3 for the first half of the race, he was swept up in a wreck and fell to 15th.

This weekend, a crew from the new TV show, “On Track with Ben Rhodes,” will tape a future broadcast segment. The program, which airs Saturdays at Noon on Louisville WBNA-21 and Sundays at 2 on WBKI-34, is also available on YouTube through the Ben Rhodes’ site.

For the show airing Feb. 22, Ben welcomes Bellarmine University basketball coach Scott Davenport to the set. WHAS-TV sports director Kent Spencer hosts the show.

Please come on out to the Car Show this weekend, visit our booth, and say Happy Birthday to Ben Rhodes.
