  • BELL AT POCONO: Christopher Bell has posted a pair of top-five finishes and three top-10s in six career NASCAR Cup Series starts at Pocono Raceway. He has finished sixth or better in the past two races at the 2.5-mile tri-oval. Bell has also been solid on qualifying day at Pocono with four consecutive starts of 11th or better, including a fifth-place qualifying effort last July. In five combined starts at Pocono across the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series, Bell recorded one win, three top-five finishes, and four top-10s.
  • POCONO WIN: Bell started third and won the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series race at Pocono during his championship season in 2017. In that race, he grabbed the lead with seven laps to go and never looked back to secure the victory.
  • CHICAGO RECAP: The No. 20 team finished 37th in last weekend’s race at the Chicago Street Course after an accident late in the race. Prior to the misfortune, Bell continued his recent streak of stellar performances.

On his way back to the front, he was involved in a multi-car accident that ultimately ended his race.
