Heat was the name of the game during Saturday afternoon’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Chicagoland Speedway. Under 95-plus degree temperatures, Christopher Bell led the Toyota Supra contingent with a third-place finish. 

“Our Supra was really good and really balanced. It was a little it tight early and loose late. Drove really good and really the motto of our weekend,” said Bell.
 
Teammate Brandon Jones finished fifth and had to overcome a penalty on pit road, but knew he was strong today.
Teammate Brandon Jones finished fifth and had to overcome a penalty on pit road, but knew he was strong today. “It’s tough. It’s on me. You can’t speed on pit road if you are going to try to win one of these races. There was two really good guys all day in the race, but I kind of thought we were third-place all race long,” Jones said. “All-in-all, this is where we need to be. We had great stages. Great points day – it’s what we need to do to get back into this thing.”
 
The NASCAR Xfinity Series heads south to Daytona International Speedway for action under the lights, Friday July 5th, 2019.
