) Winning for the seventh time since 2014, Oklahoma’s Christopher Bell threw the iRacing/CB Industries No. 14 into high gear and ran away from the field through the closing laps of Thursday’s John Christner Trucking Qualifying Night.
“Chad [Boat] has got this thing tuned up and it’s driving really good but man, those yellows were killing me at the beginning of the race. I just wanted to get some green flag laps in. I knew this thing was good where I could stick the bottom nice and run up if I needed to,” stated Bell.
Locked into his eighth Championship A-Feature in as many years, Bell’s run to the lead began from the fourth starting spot. Chasing Steve Buckwalter and Spencer Bayston through the opening laps, the first five revolutions were Buckwalter on point before coming under fire as the RMS No. 1s of Bayston made the advance off the second turn on Lap 6. Brady Bacon and Christopher Bell in tow, Bell rolled the cushion from third to first only to have the pass called back by the caution working Lap 8.
