Christopher Bell back in KBM truck for four more races


Christopher Bell, the 20-year-old who won the third annual Mudsummer Classic at Eldora Speedway in July, will once again drive for Kyle Busch Motorsports in the Camping World Truck Series.

The team has announced that Bell will closeout the 2015 season by competing in four of the last eight Truck races in KBM’s No. 54 Toyota Tundra.

Bell’s first race since his win at the dirt track in Rossburg, Ohio will be the Oct. 3 race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The Norman, Okla., native will then be back Oct. 24 at Talladega Superspeedway, Nov. 6 at Texas Motor Speedway and the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov.20.

Bell will be sponsored by JBL in all four races.

“I’m very thankful to Toyota Racing and JBL for providing me with the opportunity to race in the Truck Series this year and I’m looking forward to the learning experience that these additional four races will provide me with,” Bell said in a team release. “Getting the Toyota Certified Used Vehicles Tundra to victory lane on the dirt at Eldora was an incredible experience and it wouldn’t have been possible without all the hard work from everyone at Toyota, TRD (Toyota Racing Development) and Kyle Busch Motorsports. Now, I’m ready to continue to prove myself on the pavement with JBL on board for the rest of my races.”

Bell, the 2013 USACNational Midget Champion will have ran a total of seven Truck races in 2015 after competing at Eldora, Iowa Speedway and Kentucky for KBM.
