“We got beat by 17 seconds there,” said Bell. “Ultimately, it didn’t matter. For some reason, just can’t hit on what I need to, to be able to get around this place for a 30 or 40-lap run.”

Toyota teammates Brandon Jones (eighth) and Harrison Burton (10th) also finished in the top 10 in Saturday’s race.

“After getting the Kansas win, it seemed that kind of helped us turn things back around a little bit,” said Jones. “We had some really good runs, and the good thing is, I continued my position here. I think eighth was what I had last year too. I didn’t get any worse here. We still have some work to do at Homestead, but I’m looking forward to getting with this group in 2020.”
