Bell restarted third with seven laps to go but lost a little ground on just two tires to finish sixth. In 2022 Bell had his strongest NCS run to date at Dover. Bell qualified 17th and with some pit strategy restarted fifth on Monday at Dover after rain postponed the race. Bell started stage two second but a few laps in reported a loose wheel and had to pit.
