After starting from the second position, Bell spun on Lap 18, forcing him to pit road for an unscheduled pit stop. Just a few laps later, Bell began to make his was to the front, pacing the field for seven laps (of 100) before settling into the top five.“We were just kind of slow all day,” said Bell. “We didn’t get the finish we wanted. I thought we were going to run second there if the yellow didn’t come out and unfortunately the yellow came out. I started on the bottom and just could never – just wasn’t fast enough to get up there. Bummer, but it was a much needed momentum for after how Charlotte went.”
With overtime in play at the end of the race, Bell restarted fourth before dropping back to the fifth position where he crossed the finish line. It was Bell’s seventh top-five and eighth top-10 finish in 2019.The Xfinity Series travels to Michigan International Speedway where the series will race next on Saturday, June 8.
