Christopher Bell showed his quality and won the Talladega Cup pole. Bell is happy after this success, and he is aware of the importance of it. Christopher is ready to give his best and go to the very end. We will see how much he can really do, and whether he will confirm his qualities.
“We’re in the best spot (to capitalize), that’s for sure,” Bell said for motorsport.com. “We need to make up a lot of points over these next two races. Hopefully, we can maintain our track position.
Talladega has been maybe a little bit better for me than Daytona so, yeah, just really proud of everyone on his No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing team. They’ve done a really good job bringing fast race cars, week-in and week-out.
We have to score points in Stage 1 and Stage 2 and then obviously finish up as high as we can in the race. We’re going to be after it hard. I’ll have to see if I can do my job and keep it up front”.
Tyler Reddick had an accident that could have been a lot worse.
Namely, he brought his car down the pit road but the problem arose when he failed to stop the car, the car went towards the pit wall and in the end, it hit a NASCAR official. He is disappointed after this situation and aware of the danger that could have arisen.
He was lucky that the official escaped with minor injuries. “I went to the brakes and they were a little soft and I probably should have pumped them up a few times coming down pit road. I just screwed that up,” Reddick said.
“I’m really glad (the official) is doing OK. To me, that’s what’s important. I really don’t give a (expletive) about my race car. I’m glad it wasn’t any worse”.
