Rhodes Scholar: Grading On A Curve

By Amaris Noble, NASCAR

It’s a little after 5 p.m. on a Thursday, and Ben Rhodes is on his way home from school.

Communication Keys Ruston's Success

By John Tejeda, NASCAR

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Kenzie Ruston had a record-setting rookie season in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East last year.

She had to start over, however, when she moved to a new team in 2014. That hasn't slowed down the El Reno, Oklahoma, driver as she acclimated quickly to her new surroundings at Ben Kennedy Racing.
