Christopher Bell earned his third win of the season and added a 50th anniversary gold ‘Miles the Monster’ trophy to his collection in Saturday afternoon’s NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) race at Dover International Speedway. In addition, Bell captured the big check with the $100,000 bonus as the final Dash for Cash victor.
Bell followed Cole Custer for most of the day, but during the final round of pit stops, Bell’s Rheem team beat Custer’s off of the line. The Toyota Supra driver would lead the remaining 44 laps on his way to victory lane.
“I just can’t say enough about everyone on this team 20 at Joe Gibbs Racing. They never quit,” said Bell. “They keep working and over the last couple weeks we’ve had really fast race cars, but we just haven’t been able to capitalize on it. This one is really out to my pit crew. They did a great job of getting me out first there where I could control the restarts. I knew if we could get out front, we were going to be tough to beat. This one’s for everyone at Rheem, Ruud, everyone at Xfinity and all the people at Xfinity for putting up this serious money right here. This is one of the coolest trophies that we get to have – a cardboard check for $100.000.”
