CONCORD, N.C. — There is a slightly different traffic pattern in the Xfinity Series garage this weekend after Christopher Bell‘s front end was damaged by a man-hole cover early in practice Thursday.
The splitter on Bell’s No. 20 Toyota was damaged by the man-hole cover, which is located at the end of the garage where the cars run through as they exit the garage.
Bell’s team made repairs quickly and he was able to continue. He was 10th fastest in the practice session.
As a result, NASCAR has placed traffic cones in the area to divert traffic around the area.
