“It means a lot,” Rhodes said of giving Ford its first Charlotte Truck win. “I spend a lot of time actually in Charlotte even though I live in Kentucky. I come down here to the Ford Performance Technical Center that is right down the road. This is their home track as far as that goes. They’ve got a lot of really hard-working people at Ford and they deserve this as much as anybody, too. To think that they’ve gone this long and not gotten a win in their backyard in that sense, that’s really cool. I’m just happy we could do it.

Corey Heim finished second. Dean Thompson placed a career-best third. Carson Hocevar finished fourth. Grant Enfinger completed the top five.
