Christopher Bell went into Friday night’s NASCAR Xfinity Series event at Kentucky Speedway as the defending race winner. By the end of the night, he fell just one spot short, finishing runner-up in his No. 20 Toyota Supra. 

Bell led 72 laps (of 200) and scored both stage wins before relinquishing the lead in the final stage. It was his second-consecutive top-three finish.

We were really good early and my car felt really good late, we just got beat,” said Bell. “Probably just got a little bit too comfortable there, a little bit too tight. We just have to work on a couple things and we’ll come back and get this Ruud Supra in victory lane.”

Bell’s Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Riley Herbst (11th) also scored a top-15 finish while Brandon Jones, who led 12 laps, finished 30th after being forced to retire the race early on Lap 113.
