Bell col­lects Xfin­ity check­ers

The Republican Herald - - SPORTS -

AVONDALE, Ariz. ( AP) — Christo­pher Bell saved his sea­son by win­ning Satur­day at ISM Race­way to snag a spot in the Xfin­ity Se­ries cham­pi­onship.

The vic­tory was the se­rieshigh sev­enth of the sea­son for Bell, last year’s Truck Se­ries cham­pion.

De­spite his dom­i­nance through­out the year, Bell crashed in the pre­vi­ous two races and started Satur­day’s race out­side Phoenix ranked sev­enth in the stand­ings. His only shot to make it to the fi­nale at Home­stead- Mi­ami Speed­way was via a vic­tory, and Bell came through to earn a shot at a sec­ond NASCAR na­tional ti­tle.

Bell will race next Satur­day for the crown against Cole Custer, Daniel Hem­ric and Tyler Red­dick.
