HAMPTON, Va. - Ben Rhodes shows no signs of slowing.

The 17-year-old from Louisville, Ky., put on another dominating performance Saturday night, this time in the Visit Hampton VA 175 at Langley Speedway. It was Rhodes' fourth straight NASCAR K&N Pro Series win and fifth in nine races.

Rhodes led the Turner Scott Motorsports brigade, which put five drives in the top six.

But it was Rhodes' Chevrolet that was the class of the field. He led the final 162 laps and pulled away from a late restart to beat teammate Cameron Hayley by 1.1 seconds.

TSM's Scott Heckert, who started on the pole, was fourth, followed by rookie Kaz Grala and Brandon Jones.

Only Ben Kennedy Racing's Kenzie Ruston, who came home third to match her own mark as highest finishing female in series history, broke up the Turner Scott Motorsports party.

Rookie Nick Drake, Eddie MacDonald, Jessie Little and Daniel Suarez rounded out the top 10.

The win leaves Rhodes one short of tying the series record for most consecutive wins, set by Ricky Craven under the NASCAR Busch North Series banner in 1991, and of matching Dylan Kwasniewski (2013) for the most wins in the series since NASCAR lowered the age limit from 18 in 2007.

Rhodes extended his points lead to 71 over Hayley. Gray Gaulding, who finished 18th, dropped to third - six points behind Hayley and one ahead of Jones.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East is next on the track on July 11 with the Granite State 100 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
