Rhodes gets Nationwide ride for Daytona
Ledford graduate Harrison Rhodes will make his first start on the high banks of Daytona International Speedway later this month, driving the HOODZ No. 24 Toyota Camry for SR2 Motorsports. HOODZ Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning and DUCTZ Air Duct Cleaning and HVAC Restoration have joined on to partner with Harrison and SR2 Motorsports for the race weekend.
In 2013, Rhodes got his feet wet in the NASCAR Nationwide Series making seven starts throughout the season, while also making numerous starts in a super late model in races across the South East. Harrison nearly triumphed at the Myrtle Beach 400 in November, leading laps late in the race before a broken water pump ended his day with just two laps remaining in the event.
SR2 Motorsports is moving into their third season in the NASCAR Nationwide Series with Harrison behind the wheel. The team plans to move forward this season concentrating heavily on their No. 24 entry while running select races with two cars.
