SPARTA, Ky. – Harrison Rhodes knows his way around Kentucky Speedway.

       Rhodes has raced in six Xfinity Series races at the 1.5-mile track.

       “I think I know more about Kentucky than maybe any other Xfinity track,” Rhodes said. “Having a history at a place gives you a leg up going there. I’m hoping that will give us somewhat of an advantage Friday night.”

       Rhodes is 24th in the Xfinity driver standings entering Friday’s 200-lapper.

The series reaches the halfway point of its season with the Friday night run. Kentucky’s second race (Sept. 23) will begin the playoffs.

       Practice is scheduled at Kentucky at 2, 4 and 6 p.m. (ET) Thursday. Qualifying is set for 4:30 p.m. Friday, with the race to follow at 8 p.m.
