After finishing third in the championship standings as a rookie last year, Bell has started the 2017 campaign with an eighth-place showing (Daytona), a win (Atlanta) and a third-place finish (Martinsville) in the first three races. He paces the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with 201 laps led – 87 more than next-best driver Johnny Sauter.
Bell, second in the standings, trails Johnny Sauter by four points, but leads the series with seven playoff points via his two stage wins and one race victory.
He’ll attempt to continue his hot start in Friday’s Toyota Tundra 250 at Kansas Speedway – a 1.5-mile track where he finished fourth last year.
“Looking back at last year, Kansas was one of my favorite races, so I’m excited to go back there and compete for a win,” Bell said. “After being so fast earlier this year at Atlanta, I can’t wait to get to Kansas and race another mile-and-a-half track.”
It will be very interesting to see if Christopher Bell can pull a William Byron type of season thsi year.
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
