The End Is Near...The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) heads back to the state where the season began to close out 2014 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Ben Kennedy has one previous start at the Florida facility, making his debut at the track in 2013. Kennedy experienced an engine failure 45 laps shy of the finish line, relegating him to a 30th-place finish.
 
Historic Event...When Kennedy takes the checkered flag at Homestead-Miami Speedway, he will be the first descendant of NASCAR's founding family to complete a season in one of the sport's top-three series. Kennedy can be proud of what he's accomplished in his first full season in the NCWTS, as he comes into the final race of the year sitting eighth in the NCWTS Driver Point Standings and has led the Sunoco Rookie of the Year points since the second race of the year. The 22-year-old has earned one top five and seven top 10s in 21 races, earning a best finish of third at Martinsville Speedway in the spring.

Previous Race Recap...Kennedy's No. 31 Chevrolet Silverado was among the class of the field at Phoenix International Raceway, earning a top-five starting position and running third in the early portion of the Lucas Oil 150 following a delayed start due to power loss. However, a scoring issue on the lap 111 restart cost Kennedy precious track position, which ultimately could not be overcome when the 150-lap event was cut short as a result of a second power outage.
 
Ben Kennedy on Homestead-Miami Speedway:
"This is it, this is our last shot. We have had such a rough couple of weeks, and it's so important to me that we turn this year around and end the season on a high note at Homestead. My Turner Scott Motorsports team has worked really hard this year and they deserve to make it to Victory Lane before the season is through. I'm proud of everything we've accomplished, and I really think we have what it takes to win a race this year."

It's one of my favorite tracks and it really fits my driving style. I can't thank my sponsor Outerwall enough for their ongoing support this season.
