Turner Scott Motorsports announced on Monday that Ben Rhodes will compete in five NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races for the team in 2014, beginning with Saturday's race at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway. He'll be behind the wheel of the No. 32 Chevrolet. Rhodes will also drive the truck at Dover (Del.) International Speedway on May 30, at Bristol (Ten.) Motor Speedway on Aug. 20, again at Martinsville on Oct. 25 and at Phoenix International Raceway on Nov. 7. Mike Hillman Jr. will be his crew chief.

"I'm really thankful for this opportunity," Rhodes said. "I can't thank (truck owners) Harry Scott and Steve Turner enough for giving me this chance to gain valuable experience behind the wheel of one of the best trucks in the Truck Series. I also appreciate the ongoing support from (sponsor) Alpha Energy Solutions for this season, and I hope I can make everyone proud. I'm really excited to start off at Martinsville, since I've got short-track racing experience and plan to carry momentum from my K&N win over to the No. 32 truck. Turner Scott Motorsports is a top-notch organization, and I hope to learn a lot this year from both my Truck Series team as well as my K&N team."

Rhodes ran a partial K&N Pro Series East schedule for Turner Scott Motorsports in 2013. He drove for TSM in seven races, posting two top-fives and five top-10 finishes. He is continuing K&N Pro Series East competition with Turner Scott this year and recently won his first race in that series at Greenville-Pickens Speedway in Greenville, S.C.
