You may recall that Spider and I put all our eggs (money) in Chase Elliott's basket (+200 at the Barstool Sports Book) last weekend before NASCAR ran its Road Course at Daytona.
And, as is so often the case, our eggs should've been spread out through other baskets, including Chris Bell's.
Christopher Bell, in only his second year in the Cup Series AND in only his second start driving the No. 20 Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing, had his first cup win at last week's Road Course and a tremendous amount of momentum going into the Dixie Vodka 400 this weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
We sat down with Bell earlier today and spoke to him about:
- How the leap from Leavine Racing to Joe Gibbs has affected his process.
- The atmosphere between veterans versus rookies in Joe Gibbs Racing after Kyle Petty's remarks earlier this week.
- Why his home state of Oklahoma has more to offer than just creepy stories about the Tiger King.
- How his history at Homestead makes Christopher Bell an interesting pick for Sunday's race at +2800.
