Christopher Bell set to compete Thursday at Chili Bowl


Three-time Chili Bowl champion Christopher Bell takes to the track Thursday night in Tulsa, Oklahoma, looking to secure a spot in Saturday’s Chili Bowl Nationals A-main.

Bell’s week started well. He won the Race of Champions invitational race Tuesday for the second year in a row.

Bell, who moves to Joe Gibbs Racing this Cup season, won the Chili Bowl Nationals from 2017-19. Kyle Larson ended his streak last year.

Bell seeks to win the Thursday night A-main for a fifth consecutive year. The top two finishers from tonight’s A-main are locked into Saturday’s A-Main.

Others with NASCAR connections scheduled to compete Thursday are Garrett Smithley and Ryan Ellis.
