ROSSBURG, Ohio — Ben Rhodes turned the fastest lap in qualifying Wednesday afternoon to capture the pole for Wednesday night’s Eldora Dirt Derby Camping World Truck Series race at Eldora Speedway.

Rhodes turned a lap of 20.737 to capture the pole. However, winning the pole at Eldora does not mean that Rhodes will start on the pole for tonight’s Dirt Derby. He will lead the first heat race to the green, and his finishing position in that race will determine his starting position.

Logan Seavey, Tyler Dippel, Grant Enfinger and Stewart Friesen will all lead their respective heats to the green flag.
