Set to compete in Sunday's Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway with veteran Justin Marks, Rick Ware Racing is full-speed ahead working to solidify its driver lineup for other races this season. For the Feb. 25 running of the QuikTrip Folds of Honor 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, XFINITY Series veteran Rhodes will drive the team's-No. 51 Chevrolet Camaro ZR1 chartered car in the second Cup Series race of the season, Rick Ware Racing PR reports.
Rhodes has been a journeyman driver in the Xfinity Series the last few seasons. He'll finally get his big chance to race at NASCAR's top level. Rhodes will get the spot start at Atlanta next weekend in RWR's No. 51 Chevrolet. This team will use a driver rotation, so Rhodes could see some more starts throughout the season.
