Christopher Bell’s Jackman Injured at Atlanta

avid O’Dell, jackman for the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing team, received stitches in his calf area following an injury during a pit stop Sunday at Atlanta Motor Speedway but is expected to be available next week at Circuit of The Americas.

A spokesperson from Joe Gibbs Racing confirmed both the injury and O’Dell’s expected status for the series’ first road-course race of the year next week.

O’Dell was treated and released from the care center, but was unable to rejoin the team in pitting the No. 20 driven by Christopher Bell. With O’Dell sidelined, Joe Gibbs Racing competition officials put Kellen Mills — the jackman for the No. 18 team of Kyle Busch — into action with the rest of Bell’s crew. Busch had exited the race early after a wreck, so Mills was available.
