WHAT TO WATCH FOR

• Defending NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Ryan Preece will look to get his season back on the right track Saturday night in the Hoosier Tire 200 at Riverhead (New York) Raceway. Last season, Preece swept the two races at the quarter-mile oval, where he also competes on a regular basis in the track’s NASCAR Whelen All-American Series modified division. Preece finished sixth at Waterford (Connecticut) Speedbowl on Saturday, his best finish of the year. He is 13th in the standings, 60 points behind another Riverhead regular Justin Bonsignore.

• Ben Rhodes, the 17-year-old from Louisville, Kentucky, put on yet another dominating performance Saturday night, this time in the Visit Hampton VA 175 at Langley Speedway. It was Rhodes' fourth straight NASCAR K&N Pro Series win and fifth in nine races. The win leaves Rhodes one short of tying the series record for most consecutive wins, set by Ricky Craven under the NASCAR Busch North Series banner in 1991, and of matching Dylan Kwasniewski (2013) for the most wins in the series since NASCAR lowered the age limit from 18 in 2007.
