1 Comment

Christopher Bell surprised many by winning last week’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Eldora Speedway in only his third series start.

So, what’s next?

Bell wasn’t sure at Eldora, suggesting it could be his final race of the season in the Kyle Busch Motorsports truck. The 20-year-old Bell also races KBM’s Super Late Model this season while running sprint and midget cars.

Busch said in a conference call with reporters Tuesday that there could be more Truck races for Bell.

“As far as his plans for the remainder of the year, we’re still looking at some (Truck) races for him,” Busch said. “We’ll see what we can do there. We’re not quite sure. We’re going to have some more announcements shortly.”

Busch has been impressed with Bell’s performance this season.

Christopher Bell is an amazing talent,” Busch said. “He’s done a great job at Kyle Busch Motorsports this year with his Super Late Model races and it goes back to last year, I thought he did a really good job in some of the first races he ran with us.

“The Truck race at Eldora was awesome. He ran a smart race. He ran a smart heat race. Everything came together for him.”
