Reigning Camping World Truck Series champion Christopher Bell won the A main Thursday night to advance to Saturday night’s feature event and continue his bid to win back-to-back Chili Bowl National titles.

Shane Golobic finished second and Chase Johnson placed third. Each also advanced to Saturday night’s feature. Tanner Thorson finished 11th. He drives for a partnership of Richard Childress Racing and Dooling Hayward Motorsports. C.J. Leary, driving a car owned by Cup driver Alex Bowman, finished 18th in the 24-car field.

Among those Bell will be racing for the Chili Bowl National title Saturday will be Kyle Larson and Rico Abreu, who each won their qualifying events earlier this week.

Racing continues Friday in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Among those scheduled to compete are Kasey Kahne, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Chase Briscoe.
