This Week's Rheem Chevrolet at Kentucky Speedway
Ben Kennedy will be behind the wheel of the No. 2 Rheem Chevrolet for the eighth time this season for Richard Childress Racing. Having previously raced for the team at road courses, short tracks and superspeedways, Kentucky Speedway will be the first intermediate track that he will race at with RCR. In his only previous start at the 1.5-mile oval in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, Kennedy finished 32nd after being derailed by an electrical issue. He has three NASCAR Camping World Tuck Series starts at the track, with his highest finish of 10th coming in 2014.

What are your thoughts as you head to Kentucky Speedway?
"I'm looking forward to heading to Kentucky this weekend. It will be my first intermediate track with RCR, but we have run well at every track that we've been to this year. Even when I'm not in the No. 2 car, this team consistently runs well. Even though the last trip out to this track for the RCR teams didn't go as well as anticipated because of wrecks, the two teams left standing went home with top-10 finishes. I've raced at Kentucky before in both the trucks and the XFINITY Series and that extra experience will be to my benefit. I think that this will be a good weekend for all five teams, and I'm excited to have an opportunity to get our Rheem Chevrolet to Victory Lane."
