North Carolina-born Harrison Rhodes took to auto racing at the young age of 10. He began with midget cars, which proved very successful. Over that four-year period, Rhodes scored many wins, including top 3 finishes. By the very end of 2007, Rhodes joined Dan Snyder Racing and upgraded to racing Legends cars. Rhodes stuck with this for two years. In his first year, he had four wins. In the second year, he’d won 33 feature races. He racked up many other awards too: North Carolina State Points and Concord Speedway Track Championship. He also finished 2nd in the National Points Standings. This string of great feats led to something even greater…
After racing Legends cars for two years, Rhodes finally had his big break with NASCAR. In 2010, he raced in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series in a Late Model Stock car. He later went on to compete in the series for the following three years.
Rhodes had much success during this three-year period. That included many accolades and awards such as 2010 Caraway Speedway Rookie of the Year Award, many top fives at Motor Mile Speedway in 2011, and five starts in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (1 top 5 finish and 2 top 10 finishes). Not to mention, Rhodes was the youngest racer to compete in the Martinsville Speedway race and the 250-lap Myrtle Beach 400 event in 2010.
Rhodes’s blossoming career as NASCAR driver paid off in a big way. In 2013, Rhodes joined the track with the big boys in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. For the 2013 season, he competed in seven events. This new season in his life was a great opportunity to rub elbows with the most elite in his industry.
Starting 2014 with a bang, Rhodes moved to SR Motorsports. In the No. 24 Toyota, he qualified for 15th place at the Daytona International Speedway. It was a very strong year for Rhodes. Surprising news hit the airwaves when JD Motorsports announced that Rhodes was joining the team full-time racing the No. 0 Flex Seal Chevrolet. Unfortunately, Rhodes didn’t qualify for the season opener. Subsequently, he missed four races. But he then drove two races for MBM Motorsports – hitting a best finish of 9th in the July Daytona race.
Rhodes then joined Obaika Racing full-time at the top of 2016 – driving No. 97 Chevrolet Camaro. But he was later replaced by Ryan Ellis for the spring Texas race.
Rhodes is ready to take the 2017 season by storm. As of February 7, 2017, Rhodes is back on board with JD Motorsports, racing full time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series with the No 1. Flex Seal Chevrolet Camaro. Rhodes, JD Motorsports, and the Flex Seal Family are anticipating a very successful season for Rhodes. Let’s go No. 1!
